📺 Blast from the past

  • A tale of two MVC’s - Talk by Yehuda Katz at GoGaRuCo 2013, enlightens us with history of UI development and things around MVC. #video
  • Memory Management Masterclass - Talk by Addy Osmani, answers the question - how to effectively keep memory usage down because if too much is consumed, a page might be killed, forcing the user to reload it and cry in a corner.
