Advanced Frontend Links of the Week

28th part of the series - advanced links in the area of web frontend development.

The last two days I've been at the JAX Conference in the beautiful city of Mainz. After two days of conference full with talks it was time to catch up on some outstanding #posts and #articles in the #frontend #webdev space. I hope you find them as enjoyable as I did!
