HTML 5: Favorite Links, Tools, Books, Posts, People, Resources, etc.

These are favorite Links, Tools, Books, Posts, People, Resources, etcetera from the Atlanta HTML5 User Group Rockstar Notes

From our January 2013 "Rockstar" meetup. Here are the panel’s favorite links/books/tools/posts/etc....

 - for me it’s less about links and more about the practice of digging into others’ code (github), documentation, man pages, etc.
TodoMVC is a good way to get to know each framework:  The author (Addy Osmani) has a great blog worth following:

Prismatic - it learns what you read, what you like, and gives you focused content. Twitter can also be a good source of info - but ony if you follow the right people. For example, I follow Brian Rinaldi, the community manager for Adobe. He posts a couple of links per day for articles relating to front end dev (not just Adobe related). As for Social, don’t laugh, but G+ is a good place to create a “circle” of geek friends who can share articles between each other.
