JSConf 2010 :  Video Interviews with Top JavaScript Developers

While at JSConf 2010, I was able to interview some great developers who are really making an impact on client-side development. I’ve posted the video interviews below and I hope you like them. I want to thank all of my guests for taking the time to speak with me and share some great insights into what they’re working on

The future of wireframes?

I have a love hate relationship with wireframes. In the last 10 years they’ve been a part of every web project I’ve worked on.

Seven JavaScript Things I Wish I Knew Much Earlier In My Career

Five Tips For Making Ideas Happen

Creative types have a problem. We have so many great ideas, but most of them never see the light of day. Why do most ideas never happen? The reason is that our own creative habits get in the way. For example, our tendency to generate new ideas often gets in the way of executing the ones we have. As a result, we abandon many projects halfway through. Whether a personal website, a new business idea or a long-dreamt novel, most of these projects stagnate and become a source of frustration.
