I think we're doing it wrong.

Giant Codebase

Replication

Is it crazy?

Rails

asset packing

routing

models

controllers

views

REST

JS MVC FE

asset loading

routing

models

controllers

views

AJAX

DRY

What Do People New to Web Development Think?

JavaScript

Douglas Crockford now says...

  • Don't use new
  • Don't use Object.create
  • Don't use this
  • Don't use null
  • Dont use falsiness

Yes, I took a photo of a screenshot.

IM A FREE AMERICAN

It seems everything Now compiles to JS

To what end?

Is there a solution?
