Refactored #023: “Running Interference”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • The guys redesign and it looks friggin hot.
  • As an American citizen, does Tony Stark have feudal right to reinstitute Primae Noctis?
  • The guys gush over Haml and Stylus. Chris almost invented a Ruby preprocessor (but didn’t — you’re welcome).
  • Chris didn’t realize that Sass still supports whitespace-sensitive syntax.
  • Frank makes the point that you should focus on your MVP because you don’t know what you don’t know while Chris gets repetitive.
  • Running interference for your team… wise or dangerous? The guys debate several specific risks.
  • Present Frank makes an observation in agreement with things Past Frank said in Refactored 013: “Silence is Golden”. Will Future Frank disagree? Subscribe to find out (maybe, someday).
  • The pick of the week is Hugo the static site generator. Again. Yeah, we picked it twice - fight us.
  • … and much more!
