This is the new blog of Rob Eisenberg, aka EisenbergEffect. Thanks for stopping by!
After almost 8 years of blogging on devlicio.us I've decided it's time to move my official blog. I'm thankful for the devlicio.us community and the opportunities that have come from being a part of it. In the last few months some big things have been forming around my company and its open source contributions. Careful consideration has lead me to "re-focus" my blogging around what has emerged as my career's central theme: UI Architecture and Development.
UI Frameworks and Libraries
If you're interested in UI frameworks and libraries, you are going to want to stick around. I'll be talking about Durandal, Angular, Polymer and more. Is building rich web applications something you're interested in? There will be plenty of that talk here. Of course, we'll also look at other platforms such as Unity3D and realtime GUIs.
The Present and Future Web
The web is changing rapidly. Right now there are tons of new specifications being designed in various "Working Groups". There are some good ideas...and some not so good ideas. If you're interested in keeping up to date on how the web is evolving, this is the place to be.
Patterns and Practices
Frameworks, libraries, tools and new technologies are fun, but we need more than that. We need to know how to use them wisely and when not to use them at all. How do we translate recent decades of software craftsmanship practices into these new areas? What types of UI patterns solve the real world problems we encounter? These are things I've spent a lot of time thinking about over the years and it's my intent to share those ideas with you.
So, I hope you'll camp out here and join me on this new adventure. There's going to be some pretty interesting news coming and a ton of great content to boot.
