    (e.g. clever tips, techniques, workflow, strategy)
  • Advanced Front-End Techniques
    (e.g. CSS/JS architecture, Sass, LESS, maintanence)
  • Performance Optimization
    (e.g. refactoring, optimization for mobile)
  • User Experience
    (e.g. mobile UX, design patterns, usability testing)
  • Conversion Rate Optimization
    (e.g. checkout process, Web forms)
  • Building and Debugging Web Apps
    (e.g. tools, strategy, maintenance issues)
  • Sketching and Wireframing
    (e.g. sketching interfaces)
  • …and more topics.
