Shelves: front-end
This book will let you know about plenty of ideas and thoughts when working on front-end projects. What I liked the most are the chapters about Performance Budget and Visual Testing. However, I felt bored sometimes because of explaining code blocks line by line, or telling stories about issues for a specific website (Red hat) which I really don't care about (Sorry).

it is good to have this kind of books to remind the important pillars of front end architectures. The book just covers a scenario and more focused on CSS and styling. However there are plenty of different JavaScript frameworks and one approach that works perfectly cannot be applied to others.

A slim, clearly written book for experienced professional web site developers, making the case that following the principle of "Separating container from content" makes it possible to create properly modular front-end web code. You should know web development arcana such as Twig, OOCSS, Sass partials, wireframes, bands, and heroes before reading this book; the author relies on terms such as these without a word of explanation and if you are not already part of this milieu it would be extremely ...more

Quite interesting book about modern frontend architecture approach. Mostly covers topics related to CSS (modularity, testing, performance testing e.t.c). But it's book gives you quite brief overview without going deeper into the details.
