Edge Conference 2013Edge Conference is a different kind of conference, for developers with experience to share, who want to see and bring improvements to the web platform. Their emphasis is on creating a good environment for productive debate and discussion, rather than presenting the experiences of a single speaker. The videos from the conference are now available and you should definitely check them out.
Learning to teach - Bartosz SzopkaOpen web gives us a unique opportunity to learn about web technologies from the web itself. The source of every web page, stylesheet or script is only few clicks away, so it can easily become a learning material. I strongly believe that—as the builders of the web—we should care especially about those visitors of our web sites who want to learn something from our code. … And yes – the word ‘learn’ will occur many times in many forms during this talk.
Jeremy Keith - There Is No Mobile Web - BD Conf, Sept 2011The range of devices accessing the web is increasing. We are faced with a choice in how we deal with this diversity. We can either fracture the web by designing a multitude of device-specific silos, or we can embrace the flexibility of the web and create experiences that can adapt to any device or browser.
Web Highlights #5Everyday I'm reading or watching something which I find helpful. Normally I bookmark those things, but at the end I have dozen of folders and subfolders which I never check. So, I decided to make such blog post where I'll share valuable things in the net.

Stay tuned / conferences that you should know about
Nowadays is really difficult to be up to date with the latest technologies, concepts or tools. There are several ways to accomplish this. You could use RSS, check blogs regularly or follow as many people as possible in Twitter/Facebook. My way is to watch videos from various conferences.
Why I'm happy to be a web developer
You may not realize it but we, as web developers, have special powers. We could control the Web. Here are two annoying things that I was able to workaround just because I know how to use DevTools.

Hungry for knowledge #2 - the Sunday's talks collection
It's again Sunday and I'm planning to watch talks. Last week few conferences shared their recordings. I got some nice videos from Twitter and again my bookmarks bar is full with YouTube and Vimeo links. So, it's time to clear it a bit and make room for the next weekend. Here is my plan:
How I squeezed two hours and a half
Usually I don't write such articles but this time I'll share my story. I was going to fly from London to Bulgaria. The flight is two hours and a half which is (by my opinion) enough to get bored. When I was traveling from Bulgaria to London I used my phone a lot. I read lots of stuff for reactive programming, played few games, ate some snacks. However, for the way back I wasn't prepared.

My editor is full with awesome extensions and I feel pretty good there. What I am doing for the browser is making sure that I have fewer tabs open and install only extensions that I really use. One thing though I can achieve so far. I can't find the perfect new tab extension.
