Welcome to the Code Engineered, a site about creating the next generation of web coolness.
The StoryI first noticed a problem about a year ago. I was talking to a friend who is going to school to learn how to create web solutions. What they were teaching her was completely wrong. She learned things like table based layout, writing code in an ad hoc manner, and basically doing all kinds of bad practices.
Talking with her and learning her experiences framed the questions I was regularly asked in a new light. I started to understand the development mentality behind a lot of what I was seeing. Instead of frustration with the developers I was interacting with I wanted to share something better with them.
