    I hope they didn't pay for that "new" logo

    A twelve-year-old would have had more imagination.

    And, pray tell, how exactly do you "simplify" a black triangle ? I can't imagine how much time was wasted agonizing over which font to choose, what size the letters should be, and what color they should be in. Then, of course, there's the obligatory writing up the "excitement" that the new logo generates. What a waste.

      The new version is a very, very dark gray triangle.

    Who?

    What?

    They're so niche, this is probably the most publicity they've ever had.

      JavaScript, APIs, Markup... Or JAM. It's like the new hip version of LAMP/WAMP, except now it's serverless. Because everything is better when it's serverless.

      Icon, because it's the closest I can think of to a craft beer chugging hipster.
