Dear Prof. X,
I have serious concerns with some of the material that you covered in class in regards to browser sniffing and the use of http://www.w3schools.com/ as a reference guide.
Browser Sniffing
While there are occasions on the edge where browser sniffing may be necessary this is almost never the case when first starting out. I disagree that browser sniffing should be used as a means of determining functionality and so do a lot of other developers in the industry.

Why we don't like XML
View why-xml-sucks.md

I was recently working with the FogBugz XML API and I needed to get some attribute value from the response. Below is the perfectly legal call chain needed to get an attribute value from my preferred XML parser, DOMDocument:

$case_id = $dom_document->getElementsByTagName('case')->item(0)->attributes->getNamedItem('ixBug')->nodeValue;

Assuming FogCreek chose to go with a JSON API for FogBugz we could expect something along these lines to get the same value:

$case_id = $json-&gt;case-&gt;ixBug

Outlook Rant
View gist:2629749

Recently I started working on a Windows based system and, by extension, Outlook. I'm not really a power email user and I can get by with just about any email client...as long as I can provide rules for emails so that my inbox isn't chock-full of crap. Fortunately, Outlook 2010 fully supports a wide variety of rules that should be able to handle just about any weird email routing you want. Overall, I really like the rule support provided by Outlook.

However, the support provided for group based rules is absolutely horrendous and the complete opposite of a good user experience. You see, Outlook has the ability to store and manage contacts...to include creating a group of contacts. You can email everybody in the group or setup a rule to route emails from the group to a specific folder. But, if you create a group-based rule Outlook throws up all over itself and says that the group must be converted into a list of individual contacts. The rub comes when you add, or remove, a contact from a group. The asso
