Quotes of the night:

  • "That's one thing I'm always trying do more and more and more of, is get the full picture, ask as many questions as possible. Who cares what people think. It doesn't matter. You gotta have all the information."
  • "At this point in time you have so much legacy JavaScript, you're always gonna have to support that. So (JS) can't go away."
  • "We've all worked with the developer who's just an asshole who thinks they're just too good for everybody else. Don't be like that. Have discipline to think about other people and what they are thinking. To me, the arrogant asshole developer that will not accept that he is wrong, is the worst possible type of person you could work with."
