I found this article, Getting rusty – we need new best practices for a different development world, by Christian Heilmann very interesting. It explores the evolution of the intersection between behavior, presentation, and structure in website architecture.

I’ve been overwhelmed on the job lately, launching new features, hiring, bringing new engineers up to speed, submitting some packages to PyPI, and open sourcing what I can. I plan to get back to the continuous deployment series this week.
