My new rule is that if you hear yourself humming the ABCs in your mind in order to find a specific file, your folders probably have too many files.
Joel Hooks shares lessons learned from working with the AngularJS for single page web apps. Think about the time you’ve had to climb inside some other designer’s files (aka: mind) and figure out what was going on. Certainly you, too, discovered gorgeous hidden structures, evidence of last minute fixes, overtures to beloved designers and some some ugly, if logical, construction choices. Hooks writes about this experience we have of doing our work and it’s worth a read, even if coding ain’t yer thing.
