Well..that was easy


Just upgraded from WP 1.5.X to 2.0.X, and it turned out to be about about 12 times easier than I anticipated.

In other news, it was determined that the app I am writing at work is too Javascript heavy. The ther programmers complained of headaches when they looked at the eccentric syntax of my uber-javascript skillz. So now I have to go back and move alot of stuff to the server side…pansies.

We will also be officially changing our company name to Google2 as they are the only other company I am aware of that does all their client side programming on the server side. Yeah, weird huh?

    For those non web programmers – please explain putting client side programming on the server side. Thank you.

    That would be a simple case of cut and paste my friend. Just copy from the client and paste onto the server, it couldn’t be easier! ;-P

    More seriously, it means that they/we write a lot of Java code to generate a lot of Javascript code.

    There is no such thing as client-side code – who gave you that idea in the first place? 😮

    Correct me if I am wrong as a web coder – but would that add extra server processing that could be avoided? Or is there a performance improvement I am missing?

    Water on a duck really. The extra overhead in minuscule, and once compiled the difference would be all but unnoticeable. Rather than having to create the command, then the template then the client-side code. By moving the client-side code creation to the command, it adheres more to the MVC model.

    That and they are all just JavaScript haters..

    Rich: Do not try and code on the client-side. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.
    Jeff: What truth?
    Rich: There is no client.
    Jeff: There is no client?
    Rich: Then you’ll see, that there is no client-side code, there is only the server.
