    I don't see any common libs being used (three.js, snap.js, gsap, waypoints etc) from the Network tab. I'm assuming it was built custom in house. Looks like they have an internal js lib as well that manages anayltics, livefyre, etc.

  • Posted to What back-end language should I learn?, Oct 09, 2017

    I've been a PHP dev for almost a decade and just recently switched to Python. I'm absolutely loving it. "Why haven't I done this sooner?" is what I've been asking myself. Flask and Django are great.

    JS/Node - It's JavaScript. But it is too volatile (no good testing solutions, ORMs and Frameworks - Express- change too often)

    Golang looked interesting but it's too fresh and I'm in the business of being employable/marketable so it's more of a hobby language for me right now.

    Ruby - Never took to the Ruby train although I don't think there is anything wrong with it. Up against Python, I choose Python everytime for career longevity and employment opportunities.

    I use Sketch mostly but I find Photoshop is still very useful.

    Very nice. Reminds me of Aaron Draplin's design aesthetic.

    Hey, Mike WIlson. Your "le sigh..." was clever and funny. I'd love to crack open that enigmatic wonderland called your mind and learn more about your design history expertise. After all isn't this a friendly and inclusive community?

    Do you have your own Advanced Custom Fields type solution on the backend? I haven't cracked it open yet.

    lol. WordPress is a great product. The problem is there are too many "developers" out there who make short-sighted decisions. To say WordPress is in the graveyard is quixotic and foolish.

    What makes you say it is in the graveyard?
