I occasionally have the same back-and-forth with a colleague in work (let’s call him Tim) who insists that everything we build should only be designed and built using System Fonts, citing poor performance and bloat as a reason not to use Web Fonts.
We’ve recently jumped into the world of Jenkins Multibranch Pipelines for one of the products we build in CarTrawler, and we couldn’t be much happier with the speed and flexibility it provides - allowing us to test, build, and deploy branches asynchronously and at scale without having to rely on a particular “build” branch, enabling us to test and demo features on our staging environment in isolation from other features.
It’s been just over a year since I first released Oscailte into the wild. And since then, I’ve not only learned a few things about working with Octopress and creating themes for it, but I’ve also learned a lot about managing my code, its structure, and in general how to make my life easier when creating projects.
Spare me ten minutes or so while I rant at you about “Videogame Journalism” in Ireland and its sorry state. It’s something that has been bothering me for a time now and it’s not getting any better anytime soon.
Allow me to introduce to you a new Octopress theme, called Oscailte!
