Time Jumps


  • I totally agree with Jen about their being way too many tools out there for developing HTML/CSS. Seems like there are new tools coming out every day.

  • loved the talk on the apps like codekit and the like. Wouldn’t it be a great idea to have these apps be modular and interchangable? Imagine anvil for mac ( does one thing, though I’d love it to do php and mysql also blabla ) and have such an app for only sass or only css stuff. Then one for only “insert name” template language. etc etc

    just thinking 😉

    I love every ShopTalk show except this one…I don’t mean to be rude, but something in Jen Simmons really bugs and annoys the hell out of me.
