We're coming at you in 4K audio from Chris' new office and Dave's garbage can while we rapidfire your questions on CSS grid fallbacks, angular represented on the podcast, Javascript's acceptance, NodeJS support on hosts, and avoiding CORS issues.

  • 3:20 What is the best approach for CSS grid layout fallbacks? I realise IE11 has an early grid implementation, and IE10 none. Do I write new CSS for each?
  • 16:40 You rarely reference Angular when talking about JavaScript - is this an intentional omission?
  • 27:20 I remember a time when JS was frowned upon by many developers in general and kept to a minimum. I am wondering what has not only erased the JavaScript security concerns but allowed it for content generation, and caused so many developers to think only in JS terms.
  • 46:00 LAMP hosts are a dime a dozen, but one's supporting NodeJS seem much more limited. Any insights into these requirements is much appreciated, as is any real-work experience either of you have had with JavaScript SSR in general.
  • 52:25 What kind of development setup should I use to avoid CORS issues or having to use jsonp, which I'd really like to avoid?
