Ailments of current web-development

8.2.09

Mornin’ class.

What do you think the dilemma – well actually it’s not only two-faced, so it would be more appropriate to call it an nlemma – of web-development of today is? Which of the following?

  • Having to write at least three different languages which span two execution-cycles
  • The strange security model on browsers that you have to program around (no client-side state)
  • Keeping in mind the quirks of at least 5 major browsers
  • Explicit separation of client and server
  • Expressiveness of application state, i.e. navigation-history and bookmark-ability
  • The web-server and session-keeping

I think it is all of them, which is what this series is about.
