I’m so incredibly happy to have my first article published on Smashing Magazine. It’s a
6000 word long story about how we managed to bring roughly 2000 pages on a technology stack made for hackers. It took me

I enjoy being at conferences, however I can’t be on all of them. Which is sad,
because judging from all the videos one misses a lot! Turns out, my most

have only one dependency in your project, which is some third party library
your code builds upon, like jQuery. Instead of having the complete dependency
management stack on your shoulders, you just want to use that single file.
