The sections on JavaScript, Page weight, and Mobile web make for interesting reading. Let’s discuss what surprised you and what didn’t about the web and JavaScript are actually used.

What to Expect This Week

  • Speaking of frameworks, Salma Alam-Naylor created https://whattheframework.dev/, a simple site with the lofty goal of picking the framework for your next project.

Let’s review the site’s recommendations and if our audience agrees with them.
