The creation of Yeyedo.com was an important step to improve my programming skills.
However what I had in my hands was a website ’90 years style: a very shiny interface, almost zero back-end, and a terrible code syntax. In the first version of the website was able to save everything on cookies, but it was not very satisfying.
With passion I try to search help from my friends: but in a world of engineers, I did not obtain so many feedbacks. However “not so many” does not mean “nothing”: I had some good advices on the style and one friend suggests me to study harder PHP and mySql.
It was not easy, but the creation of a good database by PHP and mySQL was not an impossible mission. XAMPP was my ally and permitted me to fight honorably the was against the back-end.
The discovery of jQuery for me was like the arrive of Colombo in America. A lot of opportunities but many new problems to solve.
With courage I practically rewrote all my previous code. By rewriting, I did not only implement jQuery but I put in order in the programming chaos. It was simply beautiful. A terrible childish book finally started to become a readable story. Not an epic romance, but still a good read.
I tried to implement Angular and Backbone.js too, but it was like shooting a bird with an atomic bomb. I preferred to leave their use for future projects.
The last touch was the creation of the mobile version. But at this point, by curiosity, I tried to use Git on a Bitbucket account. My face at its first use was blank and trembling. Why? Why nobody showed me this before? WHY?!? Mega and mega of bytes used on OneDrive, hard disks and servers. I said goodbye forever to “thisisdefinitiveversion2B24092014.css” and I welcomed with pleasure the new tools.
My face at its first use was blank and trembling. Why? Why nobody showed me this before? WHY?!?
The conclusion of this first version, by using jQuery Mobile for the mobile version, is the happy end of this story.
I hope that you will appreciate Yeyedo.com!
