Reading to complete before a technical interview (CSS, JS, HTML)?

I'm scheduled for a technical interview after the weekend for a front-end development position. I'd like to spend some intensive time beforehand reading relevant blogs and books to prime the ol' noodle and supplement my existing knowledge. Could you recommend some resources? Are there questions you would ask an applicant in this situation, or that you have been asked? [more inside]

Going beyond basic programming

I'm a largely self-taught web designer (HTML/CSS/design) with fairly basic but competent enough programming skills (PHP/Javascript/Python) to do simple development and be able to understand roughly what's going on when I work with developers. What are some good things to learn (libraries, techniques, math?) in order to do more interactive and dynamic things on the web, particularly when it comes to data visualization? [more inside]

Creating a Google map without the map part

I need to build a map on a webpage that acts pretty much just like google maps (zoomable, scrollable, pins that have popups (with hyperlinks) when clicked) but it's not a physical map. It'll look more like an org chart. Are there any javascript packages out there that do this? [more inside]

What IDEs / editors do you use for web development?

What IDEs, editors, or general tools do people use to do web development? I'm a linux geek, so my tool of choice is gVim. But I'm teaching a course on this right now and don't want to inflict my prejudices on the students, and I'd like a broader perspective. So if you're a web developer, what do you use? NetBeans, Notepad? Something in-between?

Client side web development with fancy graphics - what are the candidate tools? Which are going to "win"?

I'm trying to get my head round the wealth of technologies available for creating "Rich" internet applications - featuring sound, graphics, interaction, animation - specifically from the client side. Flash, ActionScript, Silverlight, Expression, JavaFX, Java, HTML5, JavaScript, JQuery... In particular, I'm looking for the long view, preferably from people working in the field: what skills do you think you will you be looking for in new recruits a few years from now? And why?

Help Turn a Flash Guy into an HTML5 Guy

I want to design an HTML5 (+JS & CSS), self-study course for myself. I'm a seasoned Flash/Actionscript developer, but I want to keep relevant if Flash dies. (Please spare me from pro/anti-Adobe politics. I don't care which technology wins. I want to be good at them all.) [more inside]
