What we're reading this week
Adam: Writing consistent frontend code is hard. And it’s even harder with a team. Brad Frost has a helpful list of questions to ask yourself (and your team) to ensure you’re all on the same page.
Ben: If-less programming is an interesting idea.
Jack: During any election season, we would be wise to treat campaign ads with a degree of skepticism. But how can journalists fact-check the 4.4 billion dollars worth of political TV ads projected for 2016? The Internet Archive wants to make it easy to see who’s lying.
Kaeti: Today is my last day at INN, so I thought I’d revisit two of my favorite things that we made this year. The first is our manifesto, a living document of our values and how we work. The second is how we redesigned INN in 60 days. It’s been a joy to work with this team, and I’m sure you’ll see me here again soon as a guest contributor. <3

Take the next two days off. You've earned it.
