  1. How/why is this pertinent to a designer? Seems firmly in the developer’s court.

  2. Thank you very much for this read – I think as a designer nowadays i should also know how to work with JS to achieve a better understanding in how i should create my layout. I’ve met a lot of ‘classic’ designers who failed in creating a solid layout because they didn’t know whats possible and whats not… (hope you understood my english)

  5. A designer should know enough theory to understand roughly what is possible…but knowing how to actually achieve it is developing surely?

    Also, this reads as an extra long advert if I’m being brutally honest.

  8. This piece ended rather abruptly. Getting to a point where you can reveal the hidden paragraphs wouldn’t have taken much more time. Leaving that to the book does not sit well.

  9. I realize this is a teaser piece but your content should at least reflect your title. So far, it just seems like a Javascript 101 tutorial and I don’t see any non-dev designers wanting to learn more in a hurry, especially when the content is so technical. However, still a pretty good read though… :)

  10. Great article - I just spotted a minor issue, when console.log in the for loop it won’t show the “Read more” link in the first paragraph as it hasn’t been appended yet - you append the “Read more” link underneath the for loop.

    Moving the for loop under the append would resolve it.
