What you learn as a frontend developer? In past, there were HTML, CSS, JS… and now? What can you say about frontend developers nowadays?
While we were preparing this issue we encountered a simple but vital question asked on dev.to. What are the latest trends in frontend development nowadays? Making a scope of the most popular open source projects will help us better understand what is going on in the web development world. This time we’ll do a brief analysis of the monthly most popular JS repositories. Chilling time is the best part of the summer, so to get more time for relaxation – read about, explore and use these great tools. They’ll save your time! For example, a mechanism for programmatically making web requests in the browser, diagrams and flowcharts generator, UI kit, React boilerplate, JS storage to improve the offline experience, text-based browser and many more of interesting and useful repositories!
Things get smarter every day! How can data help in improving the user-perceived page load performance by using predictive analytics? Investigations and monitoring showed that a data-driven approach for predictive pre-fetching of web pages can optimize loading performance on the web and make it possible for the needed page to be already in the user’s cache. Magic? Nope, just a common work of Minko Gechev and Addy Osmani! Today we’d like you to meet Guess.js – libraries and tools for enabling data-driven user-experience on the web!
Some type of knowledge does go outdated. But some data and recipes, ways and tools just going to be improved and reused again and again. How to know whether your knowledge is still valid in new conditions and times? How do you understand when you can apply some old tricks for the new issues? A human brain is a real magic box without capacity limits. And sometimes there’s no need to learn something new. All you have to do is to revise what you already have. Let’s do some knowledge revision with our new Syndicode Digest #63 – Unhide revision.
All of us like when the path is investigated and the lessons are learned. When you have no need to adopt new rules and rely on your own skills. But that is the way you will never learn anything new.

Let’s move on with our new ‘Syndicode Digest #62 – Wonderful nidicolous’!
