Edi­tor’s note

net magazine - - WELCOME -

Con­sid­er­ing JavaScript is used by 95.1% of all web­sites, it’s no sur­prise it’s con­sid­ered one of the most crit­i­cal tools in a web de­signer’s ar­se­nal. Given it’s dy­namic, weakly typed, pro­to­type-based and of­fers a multi-par­a­digm approach, JavaScript is well-suited to solv­ing myr­iad pro­gram­ming prob­lems. How­ever, this very ver­sa­til­ity also means that it can be hard to iden­tify the right pack­ages and pro­grams to serve your pur­poses.

Ev­i­dently, the dev and de­sign com­mu­nity is cry­ing out for a de­tailed break­down of the ben­e­fits of the many pack­ages on of­fer. For­tu­nately, they are in luck. This is­sue Matt Crouch is out­lin­ing all of the JavaScript tools you need to un­leash your cre­ativ­ity, whether they are help­ing you in­crease code qual­ity, per­fect project test­ing or make use of in­ter­faces.

And there’s far more JS where that came from. This is­sue Neil Pearce is here to give you a ground­ing in Vue.js and show how the flex­i­ble frame­work can be used to build a sin­gle-page app. Mean­while, Carl Cahill runs down a range of power pro­to­typ­ing tools to per­fectly plan out your projects. Fi­nally, Si­mon Yeo­man dives into the is­sue of net reg­u­la­tion and whether tech com­pa­nies can ever re­ally be trusted to po­lice them­selves.

En­joy the is­sue!
