We're back answering your questions about getting old and also the web. On this episode we're talking about web components, view source in text editors, job application process, using canvas for animations, cleaning up CSS, coding bootcamps, and more.
Netlify is a static file host with a ton of features you'll love as a front-end developer, starting with deployment. Netlify can watch any branch on a Git repo and deploy when changes go to it, or from a CLI.
