DrupalCon: Carwin Young, co-author of Front-End Fundamentals, will be giving a session at DrupalCon LA 2015 on The Why and How of Front End Architecture. Come by and say hi!
I started building websites, like many of us, as a back-end developer. I spent many delightful years developing with PHP and Drupal. However, the projects that I started working on in 2011 allowed me to begin playing with various front-end technologies. In early 2012, I successfully launched BracketCloud which was built with Backbone.js, Drupal and Node.js. Moving forward and eventually into 2013, my exposure to the front-end continued to grow. I worked on several projects that involved a lot of front-end development such as our very own Drupalize.Me and more recently the MSNBC site.
One of my 2013 new year resolutions was to write a book on front-end development that would help people with the learning curve. There was a lot to consider as I began to draft out the book structure and I went through many iterations of the topics I wanted to cover. At our annual Design & Developer retreat here at Lullabot I talked with Carwin Young, our Senior Front-End Developer, about my progress and as he shared his thoughts it became obvious that his experience and knowledge would be invaluable to the book. We decided to co-author the book together and expand its scope. One year after conception, we are extremely pleased to announce the release of Front-End Fundamentals!
