is a blog on modern JavaScript and modern web application development.

Frontend engineer and UI designer Richard Bovell founded the blog and is its editor.

While Richard has a computer science degree, everything he has learned about modern web application development and mobile app development he learns outside of college, and he credits great programming books and online programming resources—blogs, tutorials, open source libraries and frameworks—for his career in web programming. For this reason, Richard gives back with this blog.

Richard recently founded Bov Academy, an online software engineering school. You may learn more at
