I have some questions regarding design pattern (DP) usage, in particular for Java developers. i) Which DPs have you used, as far as you can remember, and how often? ii) How much have they helped your development work? iii) If you work in a project group, are there group standards for architectural and design pattern usage? iv) How can patterns be used more beneficially? v) Did you (or your group) get design pattern training? Thanks for your contribution.

Hi, I know most of the basics of html and css but I'm looking to learn more of the advanced areas. I find that most sites and books just cover the css techniques individually and do not really show the standards of how to create a high quality graphical responsive website. Does anyone know anywhere that actually discusses and shows good standards of css styling? Overall areas that confuse me are how images are used for buttons and only sections of graphics are clickable. Also, in the case of those high graphics websites in terms of backgrounds, is it most …

I'm centering my container div this way. #container{ position: absolute; left: 50%; margin:0 auto; height:100%; width:1024px; margin-left: -512px; text-align:left; } The div centers in the window, however when the user resizes the window to smaller than 1024 the window starts showing the center of the page. How can i make it to where the window will show the left side of my container when the window begins to shrink.

Hi Everyone, I know this is a large topic area when talking about coding standards and best practices. I would gratefully appreciate some constructive feedback on this area. To give you a heads-up, I'm designing and developing a team-based tool that aims to help with coding standards and best practices. It's currently called RuleX and can be found here SNIP If you have a moment, it would be gratefully appreciated if I can get your opinion on these few questions? 1. If you could have a coding standards analysis tool, what areas of your code would you like to check …

Hello, I was wondering about API standards. I want to embed games on my website but log in my server the score visitors will do. I couldn't find any API that allows such thing (or a gaming platform which "pings" back the score to my server) I would like to know if my demand is pretentious or not even a standard feature of games` APIs. Thanks in advance!

Hi there, What coding standards are most important to you? I'm doing a review and would like to get some feedback. Naming conventions, is m_ used these days? Class Names - prefixes, case? Comments - style, on functions? Do people prefer to use == NULL or == 0? Any feedback would be great. Thanks.

I'm sure this question has been asked before, but a quick search on google and on here did not yield results so I thought I'd just ask: Why does Internet Explorer/Microsoft ignore web standards? Is it that hard to keep track of the current web standards and make IE compliant? Are they simply flaunting the fact that they don't have to and will still be "the top" browser? I'm pretty sure their newest version is supposed to have exceptional support for the current web standards, but it doesn't excuse or explain the obvious blatant disregard for web standards in the …

The news in the UK that our [URL="http://www.asa.org"]Advertising Standards Authority[/URL] is being [URL="http://www.brandrepublic.com/News/988680/Advertising-industry-recommends-ASA-extends-its-remit-online/"]urged to monitor Internet ads[/URL] as well as those offline will raise two sets of eyebrows. First there will be those people who assumed it did already. There are ads online, how can an advertising standards authority not be looking at them? It's logical enough. The other set of eyebrows to be raised are...well...mine. And what surprises me isn't the idea that the ASA isn't monitoring adverts, it's the idea that any single-country and therefore parochial organisation could even begin to patrol the Internet when by definition it …

Though Social Media is now an integral part of Internet Marketing, it is still emerging and evolving. Thus, some terms and measurement of social media marketing are still ambiguous and not really measurable. So I wonder if readers on this board have read or know of social media standards?

There's a new campaign on [URL="http://twitter.com"]Twitter[/URL] about fixing [URL="http://www.microsoft.com"]Microsoft[/URL]'s flagship email program, Outlook. Outlook 2010 will be coming out next year (just say if I'm going too quickly) and it renders emails oddly if they're in HTML. There are details [URL="http://fixoutlook.org/"]here[/URL]. Let's ignore the fact that the Fixoutlook page is one of the slowest-loading, ugliest pages I've ever seen. Having loads of images taking their time to get onto the screen is presumably part of the whole idea, albeit not one that I'd have implemented. The fact is, though, that sending HTML emails has always been a nightmare. Every email …

This morning EMC, Microsoft and IBM announced they had worked together over a two-year period to create a [URL="http://www.fiercecontentmanagement.com/story/ring-bells-major-ecm-vendors-send-content-sharing-standard-oasis-today/2008-09-10"]content interchange standard[/URL] for enterprise content management systems. It may not sound like much, but it's meaningful on several levels. For content management customers, it means it will greatly simplify moving content across disparate content repositories, while also enabling IT departments to build applications for workflow, archiving and other tasks independent of the content management system developer. But I think the real story here is that three huge companies came together for the benefit of the many over the benefit of the …

It has been a busy week for both [URL="http://www.w3.org"]W3C [/URL]and anyone who is serious about XML. The [URL="http://www.w3.org/XML/Core/"]W3C XML Core Working Group[/URL] has published the fourth edition of XML 1.0, and second editions of XML 1.1 and Namespaces in XML 1.0 and 1.1.

As well as correcting ‘all known errata’ according to a W3C release, the revised specifications also clarify where before there was ‘potential for misunderstanding’ although I have to admit I have yet …
