What should I know as a front-end web engineer?

I heard this question couple of times from my friends. Many full stack web developer has experience about the UI elements. But they do not know the internals and how the rendering works in a web browser. Since web browsers are really advanced on parsing HTML, CSS and JavaScript, it is not always easy to see your faults or bad practices when you render a web page and check the results.

Therefore, I strongly recommend watching this video to understand what is being a front-end engineer and how parsing works in web browsers in summary.


David also describes the difference between designer, hacker, developer, and engineer in the beginning of this talk. Enjoy!
