David Heinemeier Hansson Signal v. Noise

Designing for the web ought to mean making HTML and CSS  ↦

DHH shared his thoughts on The Great Divide. After all, the web IS just…HTML, CSS, and JavaScript…

…as The Great Divide points out, regression is lurking, because the industry is making it too hard to work directly with the web. The towering demands inherent in certain ways of working with JavaScript are rightfully scaring some designers off from implementing their ideas at all. That’s a travesty.

At Basecamp, web designers all do HTML, CSS, and frequently the first-pass implementations of the necessary JavaScript and Rails code as well! It means they get to iterate on their design ideas with full independence. In the real app!
