Interviewing UI Designers

Silly answers to serious CSS/JavaScript questions:

Me: How do I add a style sheet to my HTML document?

Him: Simple. You click on 'Insert' on the menu bar, and click on "Style sheet".

It would be very funny if it weren't so sad.

The Mark Of The n00b

Scott Andrew's ways of detecting newbies at work in JavaScript.

I've learnt one other trick for distinguishing newbies and pros: ask them the difference between this and self. Usually people who just claim to be excellent scripters don't know the answer, while real pros do.

The role of a web developer

One of the better descriptions of "web developer" I've read.

[...] e-commerce developers wrote web applications in Java. HTML was just beneath them, and it was a task well suited for the most junior member of the team.

This is one of the largest problems in building web sites with a strong server side component.

Web development isn't one skill, its an aggregation of many skills and knowledge - almost anything used in the context of the web counts as a web development skill.

True. I generally use a narrowed-down definition (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), but Isofarro names several related techniques that you're going to need one day—and are going to need a specialist for. This specialist is also a web developer, though with a different skillset.
