Brent Simmons rediscovers the joy of web development ⇝

A Rip Van Winkle of sorts, Brent Simmons, a prominent developer of native Mac applications, takes a fresh look at web development, ten years removed from his last “serious web work.” More than a just a formulaic top ten list, Brent gives a newcomer’s take on several technologies we take for granted.

I was reminded of how the Cocoa world felt in 2002 — those days felt like early days again. There was so much excitement for what we could make and what would come next.

And now it feels like that for the web. Again.

Exciting times, these.
