Job titles is a regular topic around here. Occasionally heated, as job titles play a role in the hiring process (why are you asking me React questions for this UX design position role?). And complicated by the fact that there is no agreed-upon standards and the loads of people and companies who don’t take them seriously (we just want people who do a good job, make your title whatever you want it to be). Complicated again …

Approaches to Deprecating Code in JavaScript

Recently, I had to dig into the topic of code deprecation in JavaScript. I feel like this topic gets less coverage even though it may a play key role in certain projects, especially when working in bigger teams or dealing with external APIs.

Good ol’ Margin Collapsing
