Advanced Frontend Links of the Week

34th part of the series - advanced links in the area of web frontend development.

With my vacation ahead I wanted to share some insightful and inspiring #posts and #articles in the #frontend #webdev space that I've read in the last week. Please let me know in the comments if any of these articles was interesting for you! (Issue 35 might come a bit delayed as I am not sure yet how much online reading I can or want to do during my vacation)

1. Emoji history: the missing years by Matt Septhon
A great post - personally I've known a bit of this already, but the images alone have been interesting not only for historic purposes.

2. Build Your Own React.js in 400 Lines of Code by Zachary Lee
Been there, done that - recommend doing it for everyone.

3. Thinking out loud about 2nd-gen Email by Gabriel Sieben
In any case I recommend using Fastmail!

4. New Architecture is now in Beta! by Riccardo Cipolleschi
React Native seems to make an architecture change every couple of years... but this is it, is it?!

5. The problem with new URL(), and how URL.parse() fixes that by Kilian Valkhof
TL;DR: The problem is that constructors should not throw.

6. An Organizer’s Retrospective on the 11ty Conference by Zach Leatherman
With the micro frontends conference around the corner this is a great retro!

7. The Modern Guide For Making CSS Shapes by Temani Afif
I always enjoy those articles, even though I rarely create CSS shapes.

8. Why Designers Aren’t Understood by Vitaly Friedman
Code if you want to be understood.

9. At some point, JavaScript got good by Jonathan Beebe
The story of JavaScript highlights to me that anything can become good - adoption is key.

10. React Compiler Playground by React Team
Speaking of JS becoming good - you should throw in some complex components into this.

🙏 Many thanks to all authors for their hard work - much appreciated!
