Last Week

Our London PWA meetup was held, 80+ signed up for it. See some pictures of it from our meetup group.

Still not building PWA:s? Be sure not to miss our next Developer meetup were we’ll have a “build your first PWA” workshop. If you want to learn more about PWA (before building one), the Oslo PWA meetup is for you. Be sure to sign up for both!

Last week we focused a lot on brushing up our developer training courses, improving pace and flow, while also improving our certification test.

We’re still on the lookout for our next co-worker in Oslo. Are you the one Demand Generation Manager we’re looking for? Or do you know the one? Let us know!

Keep connected here in our forums and through our open Slack channels.


Enonic Releases

No new releases last week. We’re still hard at work on 6.14, but no fixed release date just yet. Keep yourself updated here in our forums.

If you’re not updated on the many great new things we’ll see in 6.14, I can give you a teaser. We’re getting full localization in every custom schema (meaning developers can add full localization in their apps’ editor-facing labels).


Enonic Market

Enonic Market had these updates last week:

PWA Starter - 1.3.0 (and 1.2.0) - released last week, lands a few nice improvements.

RSS feeds - 0.13.0 - still in beta, but now updated to latest XP and Gradle.

Menu library - 2.0.0 - Breaking change, easier to use, a lot of new improvements, especially big increase in speed.

No new releases last week, but be sure to check out the updated Menu library.


Further reading

Here’s some interesting articles that surfaced last week, related to Web Development in general.

Top JS trends to watch for in 2018 - A list of the top trends for JavaScript in this year.

Facebook invented a new time unit - If Facebook isn’t busy enough tracking our every step, they’ve now invented a new time unit - a flick.

CSS Gridish - turn your grid desig/settings into CSS Grid - IBM built a handy little tool that let’s you define your new site’s grid in a config and it then generates CSS Grid for you!

Bootstrap 4 released - This was actually two weeks ago, but in the new CSS Grid-era, it was easily forgotten. Bootstrap 4 beta 2 is out and hopefully soon stable after years and years of development.

Send me a private message if you happen to stumble over something interesting this week.
