    Would You Use Vanilla JavaScript (No Framework) on a Project?

    Would You Use Vanilla JavaScript (No Framework) on a Project?

    Welcome back to the HTML All The Things Podcast your web development, web design, and small business headquarters. This week, Matt and Mike discussed whether vanilla JavaScript is viable on modern projects. Vanilla JavaScript is of course the language that the browser understands, but with the increasing complexity in many of today's web development projects, frameworks like React, Vue, and Svelte have seemingly taken over as the tools of choice for web developers. Should you use a framework, or should you use vanilla JavaScript?

    Web Design for Web Developers

    Welcome back to the HTML All The Things Podcast your web development, web design, and small business headquarters. This week, Matt and Mike answered a collection of questions regarding web design and web developers. If you're a developer, you might experience some imposter syndrome, or skill gaps, when you try and complete an entire project yourself (or with a small team). Often, the issues come from a lack of design skills, or a lack of confidence in your design ability.

    Welcome back to the HTML All The Things Podcast your web development, web design, and small business headquarters. This week, Matt and Mike discussed the importance (or lack thereof) of website performance.

10/10, this show brought me up to speed in the development world

I started at episode one and listened straight through for an incredibly deep understanding of what coding and the work of a coder looks like today. They explain technical concepts in a light hearted manner. Throw it on from the beginning if you are new to coding, you will learn a lot

These Guys are Fun

Let’s be honest development isn’t the most entertaining of topics. BUT, Matt & Mike do a great job of making a bland topic interesting and funny. They bring real world experience having been in the industry for years but do it in a way that’s accessible if you’re just starting out. Thank you guys!

Pain points are a pain

They touch on some interesting topics, and I’ve learned from this show. But I strongly dislike that you have to sit through 10 to 20 minutes of them essentially complaining during the “weekly pain points” to start every episode. Irrelevant negativity that I’ve started skipping over each episode I listen to.
