linkedin.github.io

Matthew Shoup and I worked on a new design for linkedin.github.io for LinkedIn’s January hackday, and with some help from Yevgeniy Brikman we launched it on 2/21.

I had a lot of fun working on this small project. This was the first JavaScript project I’ve worked on since I graduated and it took me a few minutes to get into the JavaScript + HTML + CSS development “frame of mind”. Once that initial rustiness wore off though it was a lot of fun to build this website.

Twitter bootstrap is still amazing. The ability to write “debugger” in your JavaScript source file and have the browser pause there so that you can inspect state is fantastic. And each time I use the developer tools in Chrome I am reminded on Bret Victor’s “Inventing on Principle” talk.
