    I’m an Impostor

    This is the hardest thing I've ever had to write, much less admit to myself.  I've written resignation letters from jobs I've loved, I've ended relationships, I've failed at a host of tasks, and let myself down in my life.  All of those feelings were very...

    Introducing MooTools Templated

    One major problem with creating UI components with the MooTools JavaScript framework is that there isn't a great way of allowing customization of template and ease of node creation. As of today, there are two ways of creating: new Element Madness The first way to create UI-driven...

    CSS pointer-events

    The responsibilities taken on by CSS seems to be increasingly blurring with JavaScript. Consider the -webkit-touch-callout CSS property, which prevents iOS's link dialog menu when you tap and hold a clickable element. The pointer-events property is even more JavaScript-like, preventing: click actions from doing...

  1. My favourite client side performance testing tool is GTMetrix a web based performance tester. Link: http://gtmetrix.com/

  2. webpagetest.org

  3. I use mocha, I especially started using mocha with co and –harmony: https://github.com/visionmedia/co/blob/master/test/arrays.js

    • Oops I read that as testing tool. I use jsperf for quick tests and devtools for anything heavier

  4. David K

    Profiling in the Google Chrome Console mixed with PageSpeed Insights are really useful for performance testing.

  5. For testing I use the Chrome Dev Tools and a gulp task PageSpeedTest

    I live in NYC area and I really want to go to this event… And I would be happy to share a blog post talking about the event…

    People. You can’t beat the frustration of a potential user in the testing phase to motivate you to make things faster.

  7. Chrome Dev Tools and New Relic

  8. Chrome’s Dev Tools primarily.

  9. Hey David,
    My favourite client side performance testing tools are
    1- Chrome Dev Tools
    2- Gtmetrix
    3- Pingdom (to some extent)
    4- & sometimes New Relic helps a lot.

    Chrome Developer Tools is the best without any doubts

  11. I do not have a favorite tool as I am new to the testing and DevOps world. I would greatly benefit from the tickets by jump starting my learning as I am already passionate about learning these skills. Please help a developer discover the way! I will return the favor!

    I use Chrome dev tools
