    Svelte, Rollup and being proper adults

    Svelte, Rollup and being proper adults

    It's a new year but the same pod as we're back talking in more detail about Svelte and Rollup after Jack tried rebuilding the Fish and Scripts site over Christmas. Phil has been merging his favourite tools - Eleventy and TailwindCSS - into a new fancy starter template on GitHub and we dive into our 2020 resolutions which largely centre around us being better adults and taking responsibility for our lives...

    Thank you again for the amazing support in 2019 and we're so excited to see what 2020 brings for the show. We love all your comments, feedback and suggestions so do feel free to get in touch.

    Fish and Christmas special!

    Fish and Christmas special!

    After a spell of Phil being the grump, this festive episode features a grumpy Jack who has had his feathers ruffled by Twitter tropes. Meanwhile Phil shares some of his opinions and observations after starting to use Tailwind for utility-first CSS, we talk about what excites us in 2020.

    Thanks so much for your support in 2019 as we launched the podcast - it's been fantastic to hear that people enjoy the show and find our ramblings amusing and even informative every now and then! We wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year. We'll be back in 2020 with more podcasts, more names for Phil's cats, and more quickly invented, poorly thought through games.

    Head to fishandscripts.com for all the show notes, and you can follow us on @fishandscripts on the Twittersphere. Merry Christmas!

    Untangling TypeScript and onboarding new developers

    Untangling TypeScript and onboarding new developers

    Today we're diving into a variety of topics including _other podcasts_ that we like (although we're sure Fish and Scripts fills your entire podcasting needs) before Jack shares a frustrating story of TypeScript which lead to him _actually removing it_ from a project. Phil shares his delight in the Vue community and enjoyment of recent Vue conferences and we talk about onboarding developers into a new team: what do you team them and how do you make that process as smooth as possible?

    As always you'll find links to everything mentioned in the show notes which you can find at fishandscripts.com

    Fast or finished? Balancing speed and quality in software

    Fast or finished? Balancing speed and quality in software

    In this episode we reflect on how much fun it was to both be at the lovely Fronteers conference in Amsterdam and talk about some of our highlights from the event. We also wax lyrical about that tricky balancing act between shipping features fast and agonising over achieving high enough quality. And we swoon over the delicious walnut veneer and other features of Garageband.

    Utility CSS, teaching beginners and flashy PCs

    Utility CSS, teaching beginners and flashy PCs

    Today we dive into working on Windows and building outrageously flashy gaming PCs before moving onto discussing utility CSS frameworks like Tachyons and Tailwind and how they compare to other approaches out there. The highlights reel today poses an interesting question: What are the first things you'd advise a new web developer to learn about? Finally we round off with a game that tests how truly British Mr Hawksworth is...
