Last week we took a little break from Mozilla Hacks Weekly since a number of us were traveling South America for our MDN tour. Now we’re back, though, so here are more link suggestions from us in Mozilla’s Developer Engagement Team!
At the end of this blog post, you also have all the Developer Engagement team members and what they work on. If you are interested in discussing more, contributing or taking part of our work, don’t hesitate to contact us or follow us on Twitter!
If there is anything you think we should read or know about, don’t hesitate to post a comment, contact us on Twitter or through any other means.
The picks this week are:
- lake.js – Takes an img element and inserts a canvas element displaying the image and its flipped reflection directly after the img element
- Great rant on when to take your legacy code out back with a shotgun
- WebSockets: A Guide – Build New Games
- The Instagram Architecture Facebook Bought for a Cool Billion Dollars
- Don’t docwrite scripts

- The three “bad” parts in JS aren’t so bad, just mind-bending and worth reviewing occasionally
- Augmented Paper
