Making the rounds today: modern.ie
I truly appreciate the effort MS is putting in lately, and they deserve credit for this site… but the whole site feels like a bit of “do as I do, not as I say” (normally its the other way around, I know).
MS: “Use these philosophies” (site explaining this doesn’t actually follow same philosophies).
The vibe is like there’s a smart designer/developer building the thing, but a marketing manager telling them what content to put it (typical MS?)
MS: “Use these -ms prefixed, widely unsupported, unstable API’s and markup”
My last peeve: I’d wager that a majority of web developers/designers are using macs/linux. If you want to help the majority of them with testing, maybe actually offer them useful VM’s on launch. At the moment you can use browser stack (which IMO is just ok), or use their VM’s that require purchasing licenses ($500-1000+) for windows servers.
