HTML for Web Programmers

Posted in For the world, IT, Thoughts, Tools with tags , , , , on April 16, 2009 by nemosong

OK. So here is the idea what some web programmers(especially .NET programmers) think of HTML.

“Why do we need to learn HTML? We just need to drag and drop controls and edit properties in dialog boxes.”

or

“Why? Dreamweaver is the god generating HTML pages, and I believe in Dreamweaver!!!”

My honest answer? !diputS

The general idea we all know or at least web programmers know is that web designers create page views and html pages of them. And then we(web programmers or web developers) use those html pages to make them alive. What if your web designer doesn’t code html but just give you a whole image file? How are you going to work with it? Just fight and wait until the web designer learns html?

No. No you don’t do that. You gotta do what you have to do, and your project manager doesn’t wait for you to wait for your web designer.

Actually this happens frequently in our real workplaces. Web designers don’t want to type html code, and web programmers don’t want to type html codes from scratch. If you work at a right place at least, web designers give you html files. However, you are not sure if they wrote good enough html or not. Or sometimes you need to fix the html files web designers wrote. Then you definitely have to know html.

OK, then what’s up with Dreamweaver? Isn’t it useful for this job?

Dreamweaver is a great tool for non-html people. And these people don’t know how they create dirty html code while they copy, paste, delete, insert and delete again. An easy tool has gone wrong. A dirty html code makes editing the page hard and time consuming. And you know this equation.

Time consuming = Project delay.

So what do you think?

Starbucks Red Card just came today!

Starbucks Red Card just came today!

I finally received a Starbucks Red card.

I originally loaded $15 on the card, so I can use it right away!

What makes this card different is that for every purchase 5 cents is donated from my card.

This is not a credit card. This is just like one of those cards you buy at any Starbucks store and get free wi-fi.

I am now happy to use it. 😀

This is the Starbucks Red mission. This is 2/3 of the mission.

Peppermint Mocha Twist. Taste? It was so so. Espresso Truffle is better than this.
I couldn’t even taste peppermint. :s
