Advanced Frontend Links of the Week

35th part of the series - advanced links in the area of web frontend development.

As I'm entering my vacation time I wanted to share some of the most recent #posts and #articles in the #frontend #webdev space that I've read in the last days. Next week there won't be a new issue. Enjoy reading and let me know if there has been anything interesting for you!
