    the baseline of droid sans looks fucked on the 2. also where the left part of the 'y' comes in there's a weird jagged edge.

    One of my web dev assignments was to create two pages which demonstrate JavaScript interactivity.

    I might have went slightly overboard. I'm not sure what kind of mini-applications to build in.

    Here's the source of my chat app: https://github.com/itsbth/meteor-chat
    As I said earlier, it's quick and dirty, and it has one rather glaring flaw (which is a problem with the meteor platform).

    Arr tons of CSS warnings, got to start fixing those and cleaning up the code anyway. Still got tons of stuff to do before that though.

    Do this: http://ruby.railstutorial.org/ruby-o...-tutorial-book

    It'll teach you about TDD and other nice things as well.

    Thanks! Just finished the chapter which is covering TDD. I find this approach quite interesting... it makes you actually think of what you want before you start. ( Something I have been only doing for general functions and not as specific. )

    If TDD works for you, then by all means go for it. Just keep in mind that you don't have to do it.

    Personally I always code first, test later.

    It's been a side-project for 4 months or so now, on and off; many late nights!

    Facebook based login is pretty easy, I'm using my framework (https://github.com/Fizzadar/Fanatical-Dev-Core) which streamlines the entire process into a simple $user->login_facebook(), after sending them out on a $user->fb_out();

    Yeah one thing to definitely keep in mind is that TDD doesn't mean you always write all your tests first, because sometimes you don't know how something is going to work until you can prototype it or you start playing around with it.

    I probably stick to TDD about 60% of the time. I do prefer it when it's possible though because generally my tests end up being a lot more thorough.

    Edited:

    Oh and another important thing, whenever possible make sure your tests are testing behavior not implementation.

    So I was asked to make a logo for a landscaping company, even though I don't make logos. I told them this and that the best I could do is put something pre-made and some text on, and they were totally fine with that.
    How much would you charge? I feel like I can't charge them lots because that would be wrong and it's not really that good.

    Edit: they're thinking about $50/60. I can't really complain for 3 minutes of work.

    I have been leaning django for the past couple of weeks, finally got a small unfinished site up with it: http://thisisandrewswebsite.com/

    Most of my time was spent actually trying to find a cheap host that actually supports django, this is way harder than it should be. If anyone is interested I first went to lithium hosting because it was recommended here, it says that it doesn't officially support django but you can get it to work unofficially. They were a nightmare, they charge you extra for ssh access and then they make you send them a picture of your passport and a signature to actually get access to the ssh you have already paid extra for and after that you'll find out they actually support django at all, their database python extensions that django needs are compiled wrong and don't work. I then went to webhost.uk.net, they said that they support django fully when I talked to support, including the new version, long story short is they lied, they don't support it at all in the slightest. I finally settled with asmallorange.com, you have to ask support for ssh access and to install python and virtualenv for you and then you can manually install django and get it to run with some hackery. Just thought some people might want to know, what with the amount of php hate here maybe some of you will realise how awesome django is.

    should have just gone with basically any VPS host. Also your site isn't really showing off the power of django at all...

    VPS hosts are more expensive though, for simple playing around with django shared hosting at $35 a year is all I need. Also I know my site isn't showing the power of django, like I said it's just something I threw together in 5 seconds to see if django was working.

    If you're a front end developer and you can't match comps almost perfectly then you need to not being doing front-end. I absolutely hate when I pass a design off to another developer and they butcher it because they can't take the time to measure shit out before they code it. If you're not the designer don't eyeball anything.

    I agree completely, but this is trivial stuff like a heading being a pixel or two off that I missed. Not only that but none of it is consistent, the same headings have different margins etc.

    That's really not the case, it was far more off before I corrected you. I'm sorry to have to act like an OCD-riddled boy but sometimes having two elements with the wrong spacing between them can really change how they relate to each other.

    If you're using a good reset/browser normalization stylesheet then you don't get that issue nearly as much.
