SourceMaps in Chrome

Ray Cromwell – Google+ – I’ve been meaning to do this screencast for weeks, ever…. This is pretty stellar.

Re: Recent Google UI Changes

Kevin Fox – Google+ – I was writing a blog post about three recent changes to…. There’s a lot to read in this post, but it outlines a number of questions I’ve had as of late. Google’s never been looked at as a company that really optimized the design experience. That is until as of […]
