Confessions of a first year web dev

A look into experiences and lessons learned from a year working in a small web agency fresh out of university. Exploring the benefits and downsides of being part of a small team, building a design process from scratch and finding your own place in a tiny space. Expect a chilled out heart to heart and the occasional (okay probably more than occasional), animals-doing-silly-things gif.

Emily is a front-end developer and creative working at Harrogate based web agency Mixd.

Rendering performance is becoming such a prominent figure in web applications that not having an understanding will cost you dearly in the eyes of your users. Understanding how the browser optimises rendering and what the app lifecycle consists of, your apps will be running at a silky smooth 60 FPS in no time.

Ben is a Front End Developer working at Sky UK.
