JavaScript Garden

JavaScript Garden (GitHub: BonsaiDen / JavaScript-Garden) by
Ivo Wetzel and Zhang Yi Jiang is a collection of interesting and quirky
JavaScript example code.

I spend a good part of every day reading and writing about JavaScript,
and I've found things in there that are new to me. It's definite weekend
reading material!

Made by Many's SXSW Node App

Paul Battley blogged about Made by Many's SXSW Node
, which is an Express
app using Mongo and Socket.IO (a combination I've had a lot of success
with, too). The app uses the Instagram API to publish real-time images
posted by Paul's colleagues at SXSW. You can check out the app here:

It's simple but inventive. If you're working at an agency and looking to
get some Node into your day job, why not try something like this too?

JavaScript Loader Comparison

I've reviewed my share of JavaScript loaders on DailyJS, but I found
this Hacker News JavaScript loader comparison
fascinating. 21
libraries are compared in quite some detail in the linked Google Docs
