HTML Web App Development Still Has a Ways To Go

GMGruman writes “Neil McAllister was helping out a friend whose Web developer disappeared. Neil’s journey into his friend’s Web site ended up being an archaeological dig through unstable remains, as layers of code in different languages easily broke when touched. Neil realized in that experience that the ever-growing jumble of standards, frameworks, and tools makes Web application development harder than it needs to be. Although the Web is all about open standards where anyone can create variations for their specific needs and wants, Neil’s experience reminded him that a tightly controlled ecosystem backed by a major vendor does make it easier to define best practices, set development targets, and deliver results with a minimum of chaos. There’s something to be said for that.”
