    Sites and apps and games and Googlers

    For this episode of Fish and Scripts Phil and Jack happily welcomed special guests Jake and Surma, from the HTTP 203 podcast.

    Together we talk about the computer games and activities which have been keeping us busy. We discuss the differences between web sites and web apps. We explore developments in browser resource caching with Safari's double keying. And lots more.

    Mostly, you'll want to play along with "Not or Not", the cruel quiz which Jake and Surma brought along in an attempt to humiliate us.

    Learning a large codebase and live coding on stage

    Learning a large codebase and live coding on stage

    It's been a while and we're truly sorry about that - real life reared its head and left us both a bit busy for recording and editing - but we are back! In this episode Jack talks about settling into a new role, Phil discusses the pros and cons of live coding and we dive into onboarding yourself into a new codebase and tips for how to get familiar and productive.

    We promise the next episode will be out sooner than three months, and hope you're all keeping well in these current uncertain times.

    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

    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
