  • You've got to look at something and see what it isn't.

    A loaf of bread doesn't have slices.

    And then don't be afraid to fill in the missing pieces.

  • Well of course it's not all those things.

    Just like PHP isn't Rails.

    And Rails isn't Merb.

    And Firefox isn't Mosaic.

    And the lightbulb isn't a gas lamp

    And Merb doesn't provide a WebSocket api.

  • Don't be satisified by your tools.

    I mean, I know firebug is awesome. I use it all the time. It's probably my favorite tool I have.

    But really, it sort of sucks.

    Firebug makes me want to do thinks with Firebug that Firebug can't do.

    It's great for editing stylesheets.

    Unless you wan't to add a new selector.

    It's awesome for editing DOM... no, actually it's awful for that.

    It's a decent debugger. But debugging sucks.

    One of the problems with FireBug is that it doesn't understand which parts of my page were created by a loop in my templates.

    It's also not a real-time collaborative editor for web applications.

  • Collin Miller Ruby/JS Spring 06 - Now I would Like to start of by dedicating this to everybody. You probably inspired me. I also want to say I'm going to get into some things that could be risky to implement. Also, this topic is way to big for twenty minutes, so I'm going to lie and skip details a few times to get through it faster.
