This week we talked about underrated skills, skills that are really useful but not often mentioned or which may be slightly outside the sphere of normal web development stuff. It was partially inspired by my so-so typing, I'm convinced that learning to touch type would be massively useful. So when we asked listeners to send us examples of underrated skills I was expecting to see practical skills like touch typing and that sort of thing sent in. But oh no, we were sent much more thought-provoking suggestions. Out Toolstar this time was Prepros (https://prepros.io), a GUI preprocessor for Windows, Mac and Linux. Sometimes GUI's are themselves often underrated, so a GUI vs CLI discussion ensued. My Jukebox this week was I'm Losing My Edge by LCD Soundsystem. I even managed to discover a web development reference in this track, sort of. Ben's was The Sun Rising by The Beloved, though he did have some opinions on their lead singer. We also realised that we'd forgotten to put a previous Jukebox pick on the playlist, so All My Friends by LCD Soundsystem is a bonus track this week. All three are added to the Relative Paths Alt Playlist (http://relativepaths.uk/altpl). - Mark For the extended version, become a patron at https://www.patreon.com/relativepaths Subscribe and keep in touch: iTunes - https://relativepaths.uk/it Stitcher - https://relativepaths.uk/st SoundCloud - https://relativepaths.uk/sc Twitter - https://twitter.com/relativepaths Facebook - https://facebook.com/relativepaths Special mention to Loopback by Rogue Amoeba (https://rogueamoeba.com/loopback).
