Last set of resources for 2011 – lots of jQuery-related content this week. Even still, here’s the list:
- Here are 22 of the Most Popular jQuery Plugins of 2011. The Top X of Y posts have begun to decrease in popularity (thankfully!) but there’s a still a place for them in the blogosphere and this one was a good example.
- For those of you that author plugins and custom functions for jQuery, check out this refresher on jQuery’s pushStack functionality.
- My second post in Managing Premium WordPress Projects post went live on Tutsplus this week.
- Yet another jQuery Ajax Autosuggest plugin.
- With the development cycle of Ruby on Rails, it can be easy to fall behind if you aren’t regularly working with the framework. Ryan provides a traditional Getting Started with Rails railscast this week.
- Andrew Burgess had a great post on 10 New Year’s Resolutions Every Web Developer Should Make. I agree with nearly every point he makes.
- My good friend and designer Jared released a free wallpaper for January 2012. Makes your desktop look better than anything you could come up with.
- Your jQuery: Now with 67% Less Suck is a great article on ways to improve your jQuery code for performance and readability. Dug this article.
According to feedback and analytics data, this particular section of the site has a fair amount of traffic so I’m thinking of experimenting with improving it in the next year. Though I’d still likely run the resources on the site, I’m thinking of creating a newsletter and expanding the content with some more exclusive information. If you’re a developer (of any type), I’d especially like to talk with you about this.
Although, this is probably the worst time of year to gauge interest on this given that most people are traveling, taking time off, and are generally disconnect, but if you’d be interested in mixing things up with the resources, let me know either via comment or via email.
On to 2012!
