  1. “This makes the learning curve extremely lean”

    Most people don’t know what “learning curve” means. A steep learning curve actually means that learning increases rapidly with experience, i.e. it’s easy to learn.

    A “lean learning curve” can only mean the person who drew the graph with a sharp pencil and produced a thin (“lean”) line. 🙂

  2. JiveturkeyJay – 100% agree – TDD should be the first thing people look at if they aren’t doing it.

    The number of places using Typescript – lots more code only to catch a handful of bugs – when they aren’t even doing unit tests – which catch real problems and give you confidence refactoring.

    It’s kind of crazy.
