Making the www great

Interview on Treehouse

The great folks at Treehouse sat down with me for 30 minutes to talk about frontend development, my background, HTML5 Boilerplate and tooling.

A few highlights:

  • 3:40 Where’d I grow up? What was I into? (Also, the supercool IE4 DHTML event I went to!)
  • 14:45 What’s my favorite feature inside the HTML5 Boilerplate?
  • 18:34 Will web development even out where we don’t need to fuss over so many fallback scenarios?
  • 22:52 Are abstractions okay? Should you always learn what’s going on under the covers first?

I’ve also updated the interview listing on my About page. <3z
