We've made the decision to turn this into a weekly article to make sure that we are only presenting you with the very best content, to reduce the number of notifications you receive from us, and to give us more time to produce better content.

This weeks article starts with a great comparison between some of today's favourite frontend frameworks, which will hopefully help you decide on which one to go with for your next project. We then have some more technical articles: one on how to use the new keyword, and one on how to write more maintainable code by reusing code where possible.
