3 Mistakes Web Programmers Need to Stop Making

Review of 3 Mistakes Web Programmers Need to Stop Making by Jonathan Goldford

Excerpted from: Mashable, November 20, 2011, Jonathan Goldford

Background

“Sometimes as programmers, we forget that 99.9% of the population doesn’t care how a piece of text, a button, an image or a video ends up onscreen. Most people just care that it’s fast, easy to use and gives them the content they want. Otherwise, they get upset — and rightfully so. Here are three common mistakes we programmers make, and what we can do to fix them.” – Johnathan Goldford

Here is the list of 3 mistakes Web Programmers need to stop making:

1. Forgetting About Conventions
2. Creating Slowly-Loading Websites
3. Not Accounting for Potential Backend Changes

Let’s Hear It For Dennis Ritchie!

Steve Jobs vs Dennis Ritchie

 

Without Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) we would have:

No iProducts
No over expensive laptops

Without Dennis Ritchie (September 9, 1941 – October 12, 2011) we would have:

No Windows
No Unix
No C
No Programs
A large setback in computing
No Generic-text Languages.
We would all read in Binary..

They died in the same year and the same month but it seems only few notice the death of Dennis Ritchie compared to Steve Jobs.

Marketing is everything, I suppose!
