Must See JavaScript Dev Tools That Put Other Dev Tools to Shame — JavaScript Scene — Medium
Developer tools are a collection of software that makes life easier for developers. Traditionally, we’ve thought of them primarily as the IDE, linter, compiler, debugger, and profiler.
But JavaScript is a dynamic language, and along with its dynamic nature comes a need for more runtime developer tooling. JavaScript has this in spades.
For the purposes of this article, I’m going to include runtime tooling, and even a couple libraries that enhance runtime developer visibility and debugging. The line between dev tools and libraries is starting to blur. With mind-blowing results.

Over the past few years, we’ve been learning how to adapt our layouts to the infinite canvas of the web. Our sites can be viewed on any size screen, at any time, and responsive design is one approach that lets us accommodate the web’s variable shape. But with all of the challenges we’re facing and those yet to come, we need to begin building not just patterns, but principles for responsive design—principles that will allow us to focus not just on layout, but on the quality of our work.

This file contains a number of front-end interview questions that can be used when vetting potential candidates. It is by no means recommended to use every single question here on the same candidate (that would take hours). Choosing a few items from this list should help you vet the intended skills you require.

Note: Keep in mind that many of these questions are open-ended and could lead to interesting discussions that tell you more about the person's capabilities than a straight answer would.

Tech products' historical price trends - Business Insider
Technological innovation is great for consumers. As technology gets more advanced, prices drop and products get better.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics tracks prices for broad categories of goods over time. As this chart of prices for the last 18 years shows, prices have dropped dramatically in almost every tech sector. The drop in computer hardware is particularly steep.

The one exception? Cable, satellite TV, and radio service.

Lack of competition might be a factor — in a lot of markets, users can choose between their local cable provider, one or two local phone providers, and maybe a single satellite TV provider. There has also been a relentless drop in the price of components used in most electronics gear, thanks to things like Moore's Law — which says the number of transistors you can fit on a chip will double every 18 months — and manufacturing advances.

| TripMode | Your Mac's mobile data savior.
Mac: When you’re tethering your Mac to your phone, you usually want to make sure you’re using the least amount of data as possible. TripMode is an app that allows you to quickly and easily block specific apps the second you connect to a hotspot.

When you connect to a hotspot, TripMode automatically starts restricting access to the internet with any apps you have open. You can customize which ones get access and which don’t. You can also monitor how much data they use, which is handy if you have a data cap on your hotspot. For example, you can make sure your timed CrashPlan sync doesn’t happen when you’re on a hotspot, or restrict Dropbox until you’re back on a normal Wi-Fi connection. You can also restrict apps manually, so it’s useful if you’re on public Wi-Fi or just trying to conserve a little battery life as well. There’s a free seven day trial of the app available on the developer’s site if you’d like to check it out for purchasing.
