Jeremy’s technical writing is as superb as always. Similar to his first book for A Book Apart, which cleared up all my confusions about HTML5, Going Offline helps me put the pieces of the service workers’ puzzle together.
Sara describes the process of turning her site into a progressive web app, and has some very kind words to say about my new book:
Jeremy covers literally everything you need to know to write and install your first Service Worker, tweak it to your site’s needs, and then write the Web App Manifest file to complete the offline experience, all in a ridiculously easy to follow style. It doesn’t matter if you’re a designer, a junior developer or an experienced engineer — this book is perfect for anyone who wants to learn about Service Workers and take their Web application to a whole new level.
Too, too kind!
I highly recommend it. I read the book over the course of two days, but it can easily be read in half a day. And as someone who rarely ever reads a book cover to cover (I tend to quit halfway through most books), this says a lot about how good it is.
A step-by-step guide to implementing drag’n’drop, and image previews with the Filereader API. No libraries or frameworks were harmed in the making of this article.
Well, that escalated quickly! Service workers are now available in Safari’s Technology Preview, which means it won’t be long before it lands in Safari proper.
Everything offline’s coming up Milhouse!
Susan reviews Alla’s superb book on design systems:
If you’re interested in or wanting to create a design system or improve the one you have or get buy in to take your side project at work and make it part of the normal work flow, read this book. And even better, get your colleagues to do the same, so you’ll have a shared understanding before you begin the hard work to build your own system.
Susan also published her highlights from the book. I really like that!
This is definitely the best review of any of my books.
A jolly nice review of Resilient Web Design.
After just a few pages in, I could see why so many have read Resilient Web Design all in one go. It lives up to all the excellent reviews.
I know it’s just a landing page for YouTube channel of movie reviews but I really like the art direction and responsiveness of this.
