Brad Frost: Over It.

“So keep things simple. Build to standards. Use progressive enhancement. Don’t try to send wheelbarrows full of JavaScript down the pipes unless you have to. Don’t make assumptions. Save the stress for more important things.

Hacking UI: Does Design even matter.

I’ve wondered about this. Great products or services seem to succeed whether they’re running a HTML4 TABLE based layout, or the latest responsive design shizz. Certainly current design can make things better or easier (one-click purchase, for instance). But I’m thinking that working on the product or service may be better $ spent than doing a/b tests on purchase button colors.

Keith Cirkel: Why we should stop using Grunt & Gulp.

You could find that for certain tasks you need to use Grunt, and for others you need to use Gulp or Brunch, so enter the ridiculous world of using build tools to manage your build tools, with such great hits as grunt-brunch and gulp-grunt ...” House-of-cards effect. Yep.
