First, let me say that web interface development has recently been focusing a bit too much on development tools. We spend a lot of time setting up a perfect workflow in Grunt at the expense of creating a user-oriented product.
The UI developer’s “tool box” should contain more design thinking and less debugging tools.
Therefore, we will not plunge into the knowledge pool. A lumberjack can get along with an old chainsaw, if it’s maintained properly and he knows how to use it. Right?
