  • Hey, cool, I'm not alone anymore!!! I've been saying that EcmaScript (formerly known as JavaScript) is actually a pretty decent language if you use it properly and have a good implementation (say, the Mozilla engine that also powers Adobe's SVG viewer).

    I wrote a bunch of large GUI apps in EcmaScript and quite frankly it was all clean and well done, and worked really well. For sure, I would have preferred it to be Perl but overall I can't say that it made much of a difference.

    Now the problem is, how does one explain to a DreamWeaver Kiddie the importance of clean code...

    • Doing it properly has to include "using it for proper purposes." I've seen way too many [] simple form-based applications that failed to work for me because they tried to do something special with JavaScript when a straightforward, copy out of a textbook CGI program should have been used.
