In some ways this is a list of links to review again as I learn what I’m doing.
It took about an hour, a good part of which was reading kangax’s description of how delete works, and how the different scopes for global, function and eval work. And I’m getting a clearer understanding of what happens in function declaration vs function expressions. It’s also pretty clear that best practices have changed over the past few years as the products have matured and people’s understanding changes.
I’m thinking about the Meeting Room signs I wrote here for work, and how I wouldn’t release that code today. They are working well and staying running, but the code is bad, potentially unsafe (not really as there are only 2-3 people who can enter text on the monitors) and I’d rather be proud of it. Rewriting that for the new CakePHP platform here at work would be a good project while I wait on other things here.
