This is the third Stack Decision of this series. You can read the last one to catch up (link below).

Josh is a machine. He cranked out the rewrite of the site and as well as the Amazon S3 syncing/permissions/content-type scripts in less than a week (with a full time job + 2 small kids at the time). The new site had/has a section where you could try out all of the Bootswatch themes on our site and while it might sound silly, it showed me that he goes above and beyond and I totally lucked out.

Anyway, Josh decided to go with Node.js, ExpressJS, Jade (now called Pug), and configs with #yaml, all things I have read about but never used in production. I quickly found out Josh was a Vim user (still is), because every Jade file he worked on had //- vim: ft=jade sw=4 sts=4 et: at the bottom.

Everything was running smoothly, I was encouraged by David (co-founder from part 1) to take a vacation. I took him up on that. Unfortunately, my timing couldn’t have been worse. More on that in part 4.
