Plain and simple, there isn’t always just one way to do something and they way a person chooses isn’t always the best. So how do you know what method to choose? I have a few questions I ask before I sit down and starting writing code.
- What is fastest way to go about this?
- What is the best way to make this program run as fast possible?
- How will load balance be handled using each possibility
- How accessible is the program/site using each method?
I ask myself these questions so that I can better suit the end result to fit the problem more correctly. Even if something looks like it is done better a certain way, it usually isn’t the only good way to solve a problem.
I am hoping for a redesign of the site entirely during Thanksgiving break. I should have time to put the new database backend up and the new content management system up as well… Then, if everything goes according to plan there should be a new look as well. But who knows.
In other news, I still haven’t found my Accounting notebook that had all of my notes, class worksheets, and practice tests… Frustrating is the only word to describe it.
