A Baseline for Front-End Developers - Adventures in JavaScript Development
I wrote a README the other day for a project that I’m hoping other developers will look at and learn from, and as I was writing it, I realized that it was the sort of thing that might have intimidated the hell out of me a couple of years ago, what with its casual mentions of Node, npm, Homebrew, git, tests, and development and production builds.

Testing like the TSA - (37signals)
Given all the hundreds of books we’ve seen on how to get started on test-driven development, I wish there’d be just one or two that’d focus on how to tame the beast. There’s a lot of subtlety in figuring out what’s worth testing that’s lost when everyone is focusing on the same bowling or bacon examples of how to test.

New York Times Opens Up Its Software Lab | Epicenter | Wired.com
All modern media companies are really software companies. It’s simple necessity. It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about Facebook or The Washington Post; the production and display of so much information in so many different media requires serious digital chops. Even if you’re leveraging tools developed elsewhere, someone has to put it all together. You can be good or bad at this, but you can’t avoid it.

“Complain about the way other people make software by making software.”
I think making the right choices when you face them is the best way to say how things should be done. Having empathy for people doing what you are doing is as important as having empathy for your own users.

Development for Designers - Intridea Blog
Designers and developers have a symbiotic relationship. While they may have complementing skill-sets, there are plenty of advantages to reaching across the aisle, so to speak. This two-part series discusses how designers and developers can benefit from becoming more familiar with each others skills and I'll offer some advice on how to get familiar with the "other side."

Using Varnish So News Doesn't Break Your Server - NYTimes.com
Three months earlier, I would have been swearing profusely at this point, trying to spin up new servers in time to avoid watching all my application servers groan and die. But that day I watched as all of the application servers remained unperturbed. The difference? Varnish.

Stop Seeking Out the Ninjas, Hackers, and Rockstars: How to Write Better Developer Job Descriptions » Enlight Solutions » Dan Pickett's Blog
Think about it from your own perspective for a moment. Can you picture yourself applying for a “CEO Rockstar”, “Recruitment Chef”, or “CTO Samurai” position? So, stop using silly titles. It only distinguishes you as someone who doesn’t regard software development as the art and science that it is.

Apple's wager
Apple's decisions regarding its mobile platform in particular have been extremely protective from the very start. Cumulatively, these actions represent a huge bet placed by Apple. The proposition is this: Apple is betting it can grow its platform fast enough, using any means necessary, that developers will stick around despite all the hardships and shoddy treatment. Each time it chooses to do what it thinks is best for the future of the iPhone OS platform instead of what will please developers, Apple is pushing more chips into the pot.

ignore the code: Removing Features
"Constant vigilance is the price you pay for an elegant application. This means you have to learn to say no. ... As a programmer or designer, it’s easy to become a bit too invested in your application’s feature set; accepting that something you’ve put a lot of work in needs to be changed or removed can be hard. But sometimes, it has to be done."
