Relative Paths

Episode 47 - Dogmatism | With Chris Coyier

This was one of the most interesting, thoughtful and funny conversations we've had. We spoke to Chris Coyier about dogmatism (the expression of an opinion or belief as if it were a fact) in the web industry. We talked about why it happens, what we can to do be less dogmatic ourselves and how to deal with dogmatic people and their bombastic opinions.

Our Toolstar this week was CodePen Projects, zero setup, full-featured front end web development environment, right in the browser. Chris talked us through it, and it sounds pretty great. We like all the CodePen things.

It was a diverse Jukebox this week. I chose 'A Tender History In Rust' by Do Say Make Think. Ben chose 'Eve' by Anchorsong, it's very Ben. And Chris chose 'The Stable Song' by Gregory Alan Isakov, and had a very cool story of meeting him IRL. They'll be added to the Relative Paths Alt Playlist, or the Relative Paths Playlist as appropriate.
