  • 5:15 I've just start as a freelancer and I'm asking myself what I do for the billing when I'm using a web font from a service like TypeKit?
  • 8:15 Could the device-width media feature be used to achieve common break points between iframes and their parent pages? How can you get these in sync? Sample CodePen
  • 14:23 I've been trying to improve the build automation where I work. Your ideas/thoughts on how this could be achieved and on the speed differences in FE task runners would be great.
  • 22:10 How do you manage the web development process? I often feel like I'm at a constant battle between a "good" product and satisfying my boss?
  • 28:00 I feel a little reluctant to include open source marital in something I would present to a possible employer, is this hesitation justified?
  • 33:32 Are single-use classes a good way to go for a large, shared codebase? I work for a large company with multiple front-end devs on each project, and the more I look at our growing stylesheet, the more I feel this is a way to go.
  • 42:37 I am wondering if traditional design is becoming less important. I started feeling this way few years ago. With RWD, designers don't create new design but we just pick a design pattern. Sometimes I wonder if my clients will have just as much success if they just used something like Squarespace.
  • 51:50 A lot of clients are asking for sites with lots of animations and site transitions. Have you heard of anything like that?
