Discussion on: What was your win this week?

I got to start a new developer on building their first project. We pair programmed: Built the foundation of a grid system together from scratch (flexbox, "don't overthink it") then a site icon lib using, symbol-defs and <use>. fill:currentColor too.

It's pretty awesome to see that moment when a concept clicks and they realize a big, highly-stylized site is within their reach. I know next week will bring stumbles and some frustration but right now it's fun to see their joy.
