Week 242

I was really impressed this week by Nathan Gitter’s work on building fluid interfaces. The WWDC talk that inspired him is one of the most interesting ones this year (totally recommend it), but it’s more of a theoretical / inspirational / design session than a coding one. Nathan takes it one step further, writing an article and open sourcing the code for 8 interfaces that cover the topics in the presentation. You can find both the article and the code for them below.

We’ve had a lot of great articles this week, and unfortunately we can’t fit all of them in the newsletter. If you’re curious to see the rest, you can read our issue on GitHub. And make sure to check out this week’s sponsored message .
