I have to create an organization on either GitHub or GitLab for a group of teens I'm teaching code to. The majority of them have GitHub accounts and there is only a single one using GitLab.
I like GitLab more because it's open but I don't want to overwhelm them with "yet another account" on "yet another platform".
What do you guys suggest?
@brown121407 You are not wrong. Many of these JS abominations are almost entirely better suited for moving most of the functionality to the server. The problem is that no one on the team is a back-end guy, nor do they want to be because it doesn’t involve color theory, pictures or using a Mac in an open-concept office with lots of Pinterest and instagram tabs open. 😤. Sorry. It touches a bit of a nerve.
Please, people, when you have a website with 100 downloadable things, think about the people that would rather write a script than click on every single link.
I'm reading the cheat sheet for PHP (curl cht.sh/php/:learn) and I'm thinking that a lot of projects that use a few gigs of node_modules to get one of those cool JS frameworks could have been a lot lighter and developed a lot faster with a bit of PHP.
I love it when I hear my friends (who use Windows) saying "8 gigs or ram is the minimum nowadays" because I can't remember when was the last time I needed more than 4GB for basic stuff on one of my Linux machines. (Yet I can remember needing almost 4GB only for Windows to stay idle).
Playing AAA games is not in the "basic stuff" category and it, of course, requires more memory as many other tasks sure do, but browsing the web and writing documents don't require that much juice.
