BNOTIONS We laughed, we learned and we connected with hundreds of developers at the jQueryTO 2013 conference in downtown Toronto. The 2-day conference attracted the top talent in the city and beyond, featuring cutting edge presentations and a stellar speaker lineup, which included Paul Irish and Addy Osmani from the Chrome team and some of the biggest names in the jQuery developer community. (Slides for all the speaker’s presentations follow below.) We used Google+ as a social platform during the event and asked everyone to “check-in” and use “party mode,” so we could crowd-source photos from the conference.

Understanding JSON Schema — Understanding JSON Schema 1.0 documentation JSON Schema is a powerful tool for validating the structure of JSON data. However, learning to use it by reading its specification is like learning to drive a car by looking at its blueprints. You don’t need to know how an internal combustion engine fits together if all you want to do is pick up the groceries. This book, therefore, aims to be the friendly driving instructor for JSON Schema. It’s for those that want to write it and understand it, but maybe aren’t interested in building their own car—er, writing their own JSON Schema validator—just yet.
Frontend Single Point of Failure At this year's Velocity Europe conference, I watched a great talk by Google's Patrick Meenan about 3rd party scripts and frontend Single Point of Failure (SPOF). A single point of failure is a part of a system that, if it fails, will stop the entire system from working. Quite often, you may add 3rd party scripts such as jQuery, social sharing buttons or Ad tracking scripts to your website with the best intentions, but depending on the way that these scripts are loaded you could potentially create a frontend single point of failure that can block the entire site! If these 3rd party scripts are not implemented and deployed properly they pose a significant risk for the websites that host them. Finding and tracking frontend SPOFs on your website is not always easy, but fortunately there are tools available that will help you detect them. One of the tools that was discussed at Velocity Europe was SPOF-o-matic.
