    • I would like to call this an after cleaning process, do you know why?
    • Suppose you have just joined a new organization and your first task will be to clean-up the mess of the one you had just replaced. So, what possibly could go wrong here?
    • You have a code, which is,
      • i. Lengthy
      • ii. Complex
      • iii. Bug-ridden
      • iv. Illegible
    • Ok, maybe you have that will to face such challenges but wait; I forgot to tell you the worst part of it. There is NO proper documentation!!! How worse can this be for a web developer?
    • The Challenge (Actual): You have to go through every line of the code, think in a way the other developer was thinking and be done with the task.
  • call ad
    • After toiling for a whole day, you finally fixed the bug that was giving you sleepless nights, but wait; there is a surprise for you. Now look below and see what exactly I’m trying to tell,
    • Action 1: You hit compile 1 Error Fix It
    • Action 2: You hit compile again XXXXXX Errors
    • I think every web developer would have faced this frustrating situation.
    • Cause?
    • Yes, what could be the possible cause for this?
    • Maybe the new library you used may have some conflicts with your code.
    • Solution?
    • Use Git, so what is this Git?
    • A free, open-source tool, Git is the most popular version control system used. Around the world, developers are able to work collaboratively on the software projects due to Git.
    • Now you know the benefits of Git, so utilize it to manage the revisions and do not forget to prepare a proper documentation.
    • Again, is there anything worse that can happen to a web developer?
    • It’s a situation, where he can blame no one but himself. Not making time to backup the files can cost web developers a lot in terms of time, energy, or maybe even a client.
    • So, how to save yourself from such unfortunate situations?
    • Use, Dropbox, Time Machine, and OneDrive to backup important data and files
    • OS X users can go with Time Machine; while for the users having Windows OS can enable the backup and restore options from control panel.
    • A client wants IE6 support, can you do anything apart from cursing your stars?
    • It’s the most time-consuming and energy draining task to make website and applications work on IE6. But does why every developer finds it hard to bring that compatibility between IE6 and applications? It’s a million dollar question, right?
    • Because IE6 does not properly support the CSS version 2.
    • Solution:
    • Web developers can go with browser sniffing, perform CSS hacks, or add conditional comments to create compatibility between the web applications and IE6.
    • Challenge: Find the bug, where is the bug?
    • You have been searching for hours, for days but you are not able to find that tricky bug which is stopping from completing your task.
    • Learn these few tips and tricks and find the bothering bugs in no time.
      • i. Prior to testing understand the module completely
      • ii. Come up with good test cases
      • iii. Repeat the tests in different test environments
      • iv. Prepare different result patterns and compare them
      • v. Utilize standard test cases
    • Message: Don’t let a bug break you.
