Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the HTML5 Zone (March 27 - April 03). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Updated: Parallax Effects in Hybrid/Web Apps

  • A while back I wrote about adding parallax effects to your HTML/JS experiences to make them feel a bit richer and closer to a native experience. I’ve just added this subtle (key word *subtle*) effect to a new project and made a few changes I wanted to share here.

2. 10 Essential Books For Web Designers

  • We asked some top web designers and developers to tell us some of the books that have made a big impression on them. The result is a peek at the bookshelves of some of the smartest people in the business, and an idea of the material that shapes their work.

3. #microtip - Center a Div Horizontally and Vertically

  • A small tip that can be handy, say when you are creating a landing HTML page. The goal is to position or align a div in the center of the browser. There are many misleading and non working examples when you google this, so I'm pasting a simple solution that works.

4. Bootstrap one-page template with Parallax effect

  • Bootstrap tutorial / parallax scrolling tutorial. It is no secret that the bootstrap is used on many websites now. This allows to save time and create excellent results in a short period of time. In particular it concerns the markup and styles.

5. The Bootstrap Framework Controversy ... Should You Use It or Not?

  • Released back in 2011, Twitter’s Bootstrap framework is one of the most popular – if not the most popular – front-end website development framework out there, at least in 2015. And not without a reason.
