Re: A Fundamental Disconnect Aaron Gustafson - http://aaron-gustafson.com/noteboo...
"Goodonya for focusing on “vanilla JS”! Frameworks and libraries can be great, provided you understand how they fit into your process and how their guiding philosophy aligns with yours or your team’s. jQuery, for instance, can be used to progressively enhance pages with relative ease, so it aligns pretty well with what we do at Easy. AngularJS, however, tries to control everything on the page and most people who work with it (or similar frameworks) assume JavaScript is available (and functional) and, consequently, their pages will not load without it. That doesn’t align with progressive enhancement, so it doesn’t work for us. It is possible to make a JavaScript framework play well with progressive enhancement. This can be done by having the framework take over a page after it has been loaded from the server (classic ”Hijax“). Some folks have gone so far as to run the same (or nearly the same) JavaScript on the back-end via Node.js on the off-chance JavaScript is not available on the..." - Aaron Gustafson

"Of course. I don’t think there’s much we can do about that, but my thinking is this: look for injected CSS files and then remove any nodes that match their selectors. That *should* kill most of the content injection stuff and may sideline most event handling. Anything they directly screw up via JavaScript is tougher to fix." - Aaron Gustafson

"Absolutely! In fact, I noticed that the free wifi at the Atlanta Airport completely hosed this site. I am working on some ideas for how to harden web pages against injection. I welcome input." - Aaron Gustafson

Re: Laracasts | The Command Bus - https://laracasts.com/series...
"I’m loving Commander, but there is a bug with the decorators: If you have several Commands being executed in series, the decorators seem to persist. I don’t imagine this is intentional, so I wrote a fix for the issue and sent a Pull Request (https://github.com/laracasts/C.... Looking at the Pull Request queue, however, it doesn’t look like anything has been merged for a bit. I’m not sure if that’s because there were issues with the existing Requests, but I really need to see a fix make it into the library soon as it is holding up the build and I’d rather not have to switch over to using my own fork of Commander." - Aaron Gustafson

Re: Badass Entrepreneurial Women in Chattanooga - http://southernalpha.com/women-e...
"I’d also like to nominate Elizabeth Wells. She’s got fingers in so many entrepreneurial pies it’s insane. She’s always on the go, making connections, and is insanely driven to make Chattanooga amazing. Among (many) other things, she sits on the UnFoundation. Not only is Elizabeth badass, she is (as the Brits would say) shamazebawls! Plus her energy is amazing and her enthusiasm is infectious." - Aaron Gustafson

"Kelly McCarthy (@ShirleyTemper) runs two successful businesses: an internationally recognized web development consultancy, Easy Designs, and an award-winning technical publisher, Easy Readers. She also started Hackanooga, runs the Retreats 4 Geeks training series, and started the Code & Creativity talk series here in Chattanooga this August. Never one to take a break, she’s starting company #3 in 2014 to build a super-secret, but much-needed web productivity & collaboration tool." - Aaron Gustafson

"We relocated to Chattanooga from New Haven, CT in 2008 and have not regretted it one bit. Our friends up north called us crazy, but we were feeling adventurous. We loved New Haven, but we saw the small town we lived in (Hamden) making some really bad decisions. Chattanooga, on the other hand, appeared to be a city on the upswing. From reclaiming brown fields to renovating its run-down schools to the number of LEED and EarthCraft certified buildings being constructed… it just seemed like a dream come true to us. Plus it’s beautiful. While it has not been without it’s bumps, I think Chattanooga is on a good path and is shaping up to be a really awesome city. I’m thrilled to call it home. Oh, and I run a tech company, which I relocated here when we moved. It was before “the Gig” came on-line, but that has been a nice perk. And the tech community here is only getting better." - Aaron Gustafson

Re: Why responsive design is driving mobile development tools - http://venturebeat.com/2013...
"Please don’t make that assumption. Just because a device can display a high-res image does not mean it’s in the best interest of the user to display that image. Consider that the user might be on a metered network where every bit they download costs them real money. Also, consider that they may be on a slow (or transitioning) network and the extra page weight will make the page load slower and they may go elsewhere. We need to look beyond capability and concentrate on providing the best possible experience for our users." - Aaron Gustafson

"This is really great stuff and I’m excited by the fact that Chattanooga, TN—already home to some of the fastest fiber optic networks in the U.S.—is part of the GENI network. This Fall we will be running a hackathon in partnership with Mozilla and US Ignite to explore the opportunities presented by super high speed access and examine how it can enhance community services, energy efficiency, and the other areas you mentioned." - Aaron Gustafson

Re: Putting media queries in their place - https://boagworld.com/dev...
"Yeah, like Stephanie, we usually split the design up into major and minor breakpoints, using the linked stylesheets in the head for major breakpoints and  media blocks in said stylesheets for minor breakpoints. All breakpoints are typically assigned in a mobile first pattern starting with no media query and moving up the scale using min-width tracked to the font size (which takes care of Android’s pesky zoom states). Occasionally, we might sequester a small set of styles within a range of sizes by adding in a max-width query too, but it’s rare, Combined with SASS, which will compress your CSS and merge styles nested in identical @media blocks), this has resulted in smaller CSS files, fewer HTTP requests, and a smaller overall footprint on smaller/less-capable devices. It’s a win all around." - Aaron Gustafson
