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”┬áin 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.
