Simple server side functionality for web programming and newbies

Nov 08 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

The pragmatic choice for selecting language to learn programming in is javascript. It is not a Good language to learn programming in but it is easy to get stuff graphical, interactive and published. (Perhaps actionscript is better.)

After very little hacking in javascript a backend is needed for persisting data between sessions. Also other functionality is needed like user handling. So why not create a very simple server side app that does this? It can’t be used for serious applications but for simple html/javascript for youngsters wanting to learn it should do alright.

Client side javascript logging

May 12 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

It would be useful with a client side logging solution written entirely in javascript.  With Html5 comes a client side database.  Already today we have cookies that could be used.

Logging could be done  in a round robin fashion where old logs are dropped so one always keeps the latest x logs in the database/cookie.  One could also send thelog back to the server if needed.

That way we wouldn’t need alert calls.  Especially forgotten alert calls that goes into production.
