Hello Increment readers,
It’s early April as I write this letter, and we’re in the midst of a global health crisis. I hope, by the time this issue comes out in May, by the time you read this, we’ve made progress toward recovery and found more moments of calm. For now, I write in a time of uncertainty, certainly—and a time in which technology’s power to connect and support us is perhaps more apparent than ever.
This issue honors that work and explores its context—from the shifting sphere of frontend responsibilities to the intersection of frontend, UX, and design, how frontend stacks can be used to generate experiences like video games to the inner workings of CSS and the rise of frameworks like React.
Dearest readers, the Increment team is wishing you more than the best. Stay safe, stay well, and stay hopeful.
