    Thanks for putting that on guys, it was really interesting to see your approach to those problems.

    It might be interesting someday to show how RPM tackles those same problems in very different ways. Ways that weren't listed in your slides and that are probably a bad choice for today's hipster developer, but kind of a "here's what works for us and why".

    Like why we chose Mootools and instead of making JS that plays nice with others going the complete other direction and heavily modifying natives. And how we approach that many dev files and LESS CSS => concat + min + complied CSS for deploy by using ASP.NET and Windows batch files. How we're still not sure the best way to handle templates/element generation so we have several ways including the performance king: docFragment

    Not sure where is might fit in, but wondering if we want to look at some framework tools like KnockoutJS or Angular and contrast to templating tools? Haven't used them, but they seem interesting/handy.

      We'll be covering MVC frameworks later on in the year. Part of what we are showing is how you do client side dev without one and then later how much better having an MVC framework makes things.
