Liquid Weekly

The newsletter by and for Shopify Developers

Karl Says

I demolished an old deck this past week. It felt good to do something with my hands.

It was interesting to see the underlying structure of how it was built. Some places were solid, some way overbuilt (I'm looking at you, stairs), others - not so much. To be honest, in a lot of ways it reminded me of aspects of my code.

May the knowledge and perspectives found in this week's issue help improve the way you build code, or decks.
