php[architect] has published their July 2013 edition of the magazine with a focus on "Front End Development".
Front end development is usually the last consideration for web developers, but it’s just as important as the server-side functionality. In some ways, it’s more [immediately] important, because it’s the functionality the end user interfaces with. Unless you have a wunderkind designer that can also code, this is a task for you.
This month’s issue covers technologies, techniques, and concerns that deal with modern front end coding. Frameworks that simplify coding across platforms like jQuery Mobile and Sencha Touch are discussed in “jQuery Mobile: Cross-Platform Sites Made Easy” and “Create an App to Touch the Web”.
Other topics included in this issue are polyfills in HTML5, automated deployment and the second part of a series looking at using Stripe for payments.
