SmashingConf London Avatar

We use ad-blockers as well, you know. We gotta keep those servers running though. Did you know that we publish useful books and run friendly conferences — crafted for pros like yourself? E.g. our upcoming SmashingConf London, dedicated to all things web performance.


Jim Cowart is tragically geeky about JavaScript & open source development...but he's not a fan of lists, so we'll stop there. Having journeyed through Cold Fusion, an obscure proprietary JavaScript BI implementation, C#, a smidgen of Erlang and even some time as a data warehouse architect and developer (apparently he lied to us about not liking lists), he's most passionate about connecting with other developers – learning, sharing and promoting patterns and ideas that will make development more productive, enjoyable and empowering. Jim works at LeanKit as their Web Architect & Web Team Lead and lives in Chattanooga, TN with his wife and three sons.

Writing Reusable Components in ES6

Are you excited to take advantage of new JavaScript language features but not sure where to start, or how? You're not alone! I've spent the better part of the last year and a half trying to ease this pain. During that time there have been some amazing quantum leaps in JavaScript tooling.

Writing Next Generation Reusable JavaScript Modules

These leaps have made it possible for you and me to dive head first into writing fully ES6 modules, without compromising on the essentials like testing, linting and (most importantly) the ability for others to easily consume what we write.


Qualities Of Good Flux Implementations

It has been an exciting year for my team. Last year we kicked off a project using React, and over the course of the project we've learned a lot about React and Flux — Facebook's recommended architectural principles for React apps. In this article, we'll take a look at some of the key lessons we've learned.

Qualities Of Good Flux Implementations

Whether you're new to React and Flux, or going as far as building your own Flux implementation, I think you'll not only enjoy this journey with us, but find some thought-provoking questions and wisdom you can apply in your own endeavors.
