On Our Radar
SitePoint editor, writer, ambassador and all-round PHP expert Bruno finally showed us his coolest pet project yet, our very own Google, SitePoint Search.

Over on Facebook we wanted to know, if you had to update a website from scratch, which framework and language would you use? The creativity (and politeness) of answers was incredible, and goes to show what a great community the web developers are. We also wanted to know if you go pure vanilla with your CSS or use a preprocessor like Sass or Less, with most people favouring preprocessors for ease and simplicity.
