Search - "tailwind"
If you're as bad at web design as me, I recommend tailwind css to you.
I've been using it today and had a good time.
By providing a set of design-centric classes, it makes it easy to learn and apply good design practices without losing css control.
This is paramount to me since I know a couple of css tricks, but not too many. With this you can't miss any of the fundamental ones.
It also lets you combine multiple classes into one via the @apply directive, so the html classes don't go crazy, and you don't have to write too much css. Huge amount of lines saved.
To top it off, they have plenty screenscasts that not only teach you how to use tailwindcss, they show you fundamentals good web design.5
Received a Full Stack Radio t-shirt and some new stickers this week, from the creator of Tailwind CSS. The shirt was printed in the wrong size; though I'm already happily expecting one in the right size, such things happen, and they fixed it before I even received this package (USA2BEL, 2 weeks in postage...)
Happy accident along with this; double the amount of stickers!! :D (and of course, double the shirts!)8
Had the occasion to put my hands on Tailwind CSS. Terrible sauce. Pastas taste aweful with it. I can't see myself working one more day like this.
I hate trends.
The worst of Agile and Sc(r)um: All those people knowing the right way(™) to do it. Endless discussion about useless tooling: the proper use of the custom workflow in Jira, on when and how to create sub tickets. The hour-less meta-discussions on what should be discussed where and when (what's subject of the backlog refinement, retro, etc), the roles: the PO's, what he should do, cannot, the PM's. Who is allowed to pull a ticket to the sprint or not. How many reviewers need to acknowledge a pull request. To and fro. Pointless, but fought with heart and blood, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
And everywhere I hear: "In my previous company, we did Scrum like.. and it worked perfectly!"
Some of you might remember my rants on Mr. Gitmaster, with whom I thought I'd made my peace. Guess what? He's now a team member and turning into Mr. Agile - a more severe reincarnation! As our company starts flogging that dead horse of Agility, he seems to feel strong tailwind. Our team lead would constantly cut his monologues, but he's now on holiday, so we have no escape from the never ending: "In my previous company..."
If it was so great, why didn't you stay?
We are not allowed to pull a ticket to the sprint unless every team member is notified? I don't fucking care. If our software fails on customer's machines and I can fix it, I will do if there is a ticket, if it's in the sprint or not. Screw Scrum, if it is getting in the way of it. You can waste your hours discussing horseshit, I want to sit at my desk, deep in the test-compile loop and ship some fucking code.3
I really tried to give tailwind a chance. I gave my best to start using it....
I hate it. It sucks. It makes my design process slow as fuck. Fuck of with this shit.5
