About

Working on the web today can feel like sorcery.

If you don’t invoke just the right spell just the right way, the site explodes. To find out why, you have to search through mystic docs and arcane code. Even when you find an answer, it still feels like magic.

Black Magic Dev is a class in the dark arts.

It’s a lesson in exploring the unknown.

We look behind syntax, at specs and source code. We search through bug reports and explore the depths of node_modules. When something seems supernatural, we hunt down the ghost in the shell.

Because the devil is in the details.

And when you understand the details, you fear no darkness.
