We use the format [module-name].[view-name].js. It’s clear and straightforward. Enterprise apps are typically comprised of modules so this way they are grouped together. Avoid using folders to group files as this impedes locating files.
This is a little late but more than a week ago, there was ruckus regarding this post from Secret. CodingHorror retweeted it. But this comment grabbed my attention. As someone who has a Windows in his Macbook (VM via Parallels Desktop), this is just downright clueless. If you’re a mobile developer doing enterprise apps, having .NET as a backend is very comment scenario.
Brent Simmons on being wrong in the internet:
But to do that means thinking a little bit differently than you may be used to. Instead of taking feedback as criticism or correction, take it to mean that the process is working. If you learn something or change your thinking, then that’s great. That’s the point.
I couldn’t agree more. The stigma of being wrong is such a huge impediment to self-improvement. Which reminds of this:
The hardest thing for me to do is sitting still, so when I have a chance to do so, I do. When planning my first (real & no-work, no-computer) vacation, I promised myself — I will learn to just sit still.
I feel his pain. Every time we plan for a vacation, the thought of getting off the grid would briefly play with my mind. Then my senses would come around and take it back.
It’s been 4 years since I did my last post for my previous blog. In that span of time, a lot of insane but amazing things happened. I grew up. I learned a lot. I got to lead a team and take on non-technical side of things. It was fun for a while until the daily grind of running a team caught up with me. I started to miss on little things. I have never lost touch to read and dig codes but it became such a burden to me. I got lazy. Not sleep-all-day lazy just I-am-no-longer-sharp lazy. At one point, it felt like I was excused to stay sharp because I know I am doing the other important matters.
That’s why I am picking up on blogging again.
I want to stay sharp—over the past few months, I have intensely pushed myself to get back into programming and brushed up with my soft skills. I want to make this as my default setting.
I’m a critic—I am opinionated on matters that I am passionate about: operating systems, indention styles, arrangement of apps in my phone (yes, really), pretty much any thing that I can obsess with. I would to love share the things I know about them and, occasionally, accept criticisms1 from other people. :)
Lastly, I’m sure that my friends are sick and tired of me polluting their News Feed in Facebook. I know I am a few post away from being unfriended.
On to the next post!
- I am still pondering whether to allow comments or not. I like Tumblr’s reblog feature but I don’t want to experiment too much with WordPress plugins. For now, comments are off. Let’s wait and see.
