This week we were joined by the talented design and developer David DeSandro. David was formerly nClud and recently joining Twitter in New York. David is known for some amazing projects like Masonry, http://isotope.metafizzy.co/, the 2011 BeerCamp site, and extensive documentation on 3D transforms. We talk about (roughly in order):
- Paul Irish on IE’s new updating plan
- jQuery 2.0 (in 2013) dropping IE 8. And how it’s probably not too big of a deal since you can load 1.9 conditionally.
