I was just looking at a site called ” that seems to have a pretty interesting premise.
the main focus seems to be to come up with some frequent usage patterns for .
()According to the site, this is soon going to be an book, further entrenching them as the best technical publishing site I know of. It sounds like it’s going to be a pretty cool book. At the risk of missing the point, it sounds like it will be a ‘cookbook’ of sorts where a developer can go to find an Ajax approach to different problems he/she may face.Because of the way Ajax has taken the development world by storm, it’s great to see resources like this start to appear. I’m looking forward to giving it a read. I would definitely advise any new developers to look into this technology (Actually, a combination of preexisting technologies.) Whether or not you use this book, Ajax is a great way to draw the web development environment closer to the interface you can see in a desktop application.Another thing was that this book reminded me of a
I saw today. I was just reading an ad for the magazine so I don’t know everything the article said. However, I know this book made me think of this quote. So many of the things that I have to do on a day by day basis is doubtless an issue that someone else has had to overcome at some point in the past.I do hope that as I write code for clients, I remember that I stand on the shoulders of giants. I’m not nearly as creative as many who have come before me and it reminds me of the wonderful resource that I frequently take for granted, the Internet.Any would-be developers will quickly learn that most of what you need to know is available for free online. Take advantage of the generosity of others and use it. However, don’t forget to give back when you’re in a position to.That’s really what this is about. I don’t claim to have any great knowledge. I’m just trying to help any developers that are where I was not too long ago. I’ve been helped by some great people and want to pass on that knowledge.That’s enough of the altruism spiel.
See you all later.MN
