Don’t let random internet blog posts make your decisions for you, carefully weigh the options and decide what’s right for you. Or don’t. Disclaimers aside, many people have brought up the fact that despite hosting much of the best open source code on the planet, Github itself was not open source.

It’s 2014, who’s still writing javascript plugins in vanilla javascript? I am! One of the projects I’m proud to have released over teh weekend is called Merry Go Form, a javascript plugin for carousel based forms. The idea behind the project was that long tedious forms could be broken up into different context-aware “slides”, and it would be easier for people to fill out long forms. I worked on Merry Go Form with some friends, and it was a great experience, we went for all the modern conveniences of development (Grunt, automated unit and acceptance tests), but constrained ourselves to writing very very basic (and thus cross-browser compatible) javascript.
