Friday Night Deploys #22 - A Brief Discussion On The State Of The Modern Web


Hey, How's it going everyone?
This week's topic is about a recent article that had some hubbub recently called "Second Guessing the Modern Web" by Tom Macwright on their personal blog. If you would like to take a read through it before listening you can find it in the following link.

We make some pretty far fetched analogies with modern web development and the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater video game series; Y'know most things link back to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. (Not sponsored by Tony Hawk (I Wish)).
