    Looks great! The code it produces...not so much :(

    Types "hello"

    Presses "Return, Return, Return"

    Exit dialogs are the devil.

  • Posted to Bootstrap 4 has arrived! (Beta), Aug 15, 2017

    I do have a love/hate relationship with Bootstrap, but it's great that this has been released. Congrats to the team.

    My main issue with Bootstrap comes to hiring new developers. Over the years I have seen a huge influx of developers who rely too much upon Bootstrap as the foundation they lay their knowledge on. I've been burnt in the past by developers who simply didn't understand how css worked, but were able to build sites, because they could copy and paste. Reliance upon frameworks like this is often overkill (IMO), and leads to lazy developers, who would struggle to build even the simplest three column layout without a framework.

    Bootstrap definitely has it's place, and has done huge amounts to drive the design industry forward, I just think it's overused....

    There's no magic happening here :)

    The image is fairly low in things which would lead it to be larger (number of colors, transparency etc). It's just a very nicely optimised image.

    They may have some in-house image compression system, which means they can get slightly higher quality images out of the same number of bytes, but nothing special!

    Maybe something similar to this:

    Hadn't thought of that...good points well made...if I was a recruiter, I'm sure I would use it!

    Lovely looking site, but not sure I would use it; either as a candidate or an employer. I much prefer to chat to people when recruiting, it doesn't take more than a 10-15 minute call to decide whether someone is worth of the next step. If you don't have 10-15 minutes spare per're doing it wrong.

    edit - It could be that I'm recruiting wrongly that I don't have enough candidates, however screening portfolios, CV's etc usually suffices for me to decide if I want to speak to someone.

    further edit I'm not a millennial...they may actually prefer to be screened via text!
