Spicy Web mark The Spicy Web

In 2022, we launched a newbie-friendly Discord chat server which now boasts over 600 members. Join a fabulous community of web developers learning how to use “vanilla” web specs like HTTP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, & Web Components—plus no-nonsense libraries & tools which promote developer happiness and avoid vendor lock-in. (Hmm, this sounds familiar…)

And this year, we have new courses available such as CSS Nouveau and soon DIY UI That Scales which teach you all the nitty-gritty details you need know to become an expert in standards-based web development.

Don’t miss our sibling publication, That HTML Blog, for up-to-date news on web specs and vanilla-adjacent libraries (be sure to sign up for the email digest!), as well as the Just a Spec Podcast hosted by Whitefusion founder Jared White & Ayush Newatia of Radioactive Toy.

Vanilla has never tasted so hot. 🍦🌶
