Experiences and Experiments in Programming

Well the presentation seemed to go well.  Once I get the xperimentality site back up, I will post the presentation there.  Also, I mentioned last night that one of the things I was playing around with was using AJAX to extend functionality, not just data.  Some others are doing this as well but they focus on creating a library for it.  I think all the JavaScript libraries that are out there are great.  However, I can see how the use of libraries can be a negative if the library size gets too large.  Anyway, I am going to post more on my thoughts around this soon.

I have been asked to do a presentation for the Birmingham .NET User Group tonight.  I am going to do a modified presentation that I did for the Alabama Code Camp focusing a little more on degredation.  Even though the browsers are providing better support, we still cannot control the user who might set their browser to not run scripts.

Since the last entry I made, a lot has changed.  I have taken on a different responsibility concerning the project I have been on for quite some time.  The project has lingered much longer than it should have.  The people in charge of the project were not very good at managing the effort/the budget/the people/etc.  Now the environment has changed, many of the developers have left, the leadership has completely changed, and now I am picking up the pieces left by my predecessors.  All in all, it is a good thing.  Finally, we will be able to plan properly for the work that is to be done.  The new leadership is also putting in place a plan to transition the knowledge of the system from the contractors to the full time employees that are left.  This is a good thing.  We (the contractors) won't be here forever, and someone will have to take the reigns when we move on.
