5 Things That Don’t Have to Be Hard in Single Page Applications
Last week I came across a Blog post by Sourcegraph's Quinn Slack on 5 painful things about client-side JS or single page web applications.

The geofencing features in Windows 8.1 do this for you in an intelligent and power-efficient manner. This blog post complements the previous post by discussing how to test and debug your geofencing apps.
