Front end developer should rather work on his designer skills rather than backend stuff. Not being able to design cool interface makes frontend dev boring to work with.

just like DDG, lack support for languages other than english, something you should start from when creating a search engine

-----


It's got language support - big button near the top (says "English") :)

what about copying other website layouts and designs? it seems like everyone do that, unique design is something very rare

why pay for design if I can copy something(+small modifications)?

-----


so from advertiser POV effective CPC will be above 1$ ?

that's very expensive

yet you did not fix your mistake in your article title, guess you have a lot of fun

imagine yourself having fun with your ignorance of some jewish scientist, it's exactly the same problem, even though more Poles died during WWII than jews

-----


Chill out. No need to explain by bad will, what can be perfectly well explained by ignorance.

BTW counting victims is really bad style. Most were Polish Jews, and how you count them depends on what you want to prove.

There's a simple explanation for that. When I realized that it would be better changed I could not change the submitted title here on Hacker News (they are only editable for a while, an hour I think). So I was stuck with the title I chose; I could have changed the title on my blog but then there would have been a difference between the two. So, I decided to stick with the original title.

so programming is your hobby, have some fun while researching and solving some problem using some random solution found on the internet which might work or not

professional coding is about something different

-----


It may be a "hobby" but I've been doing it for 12 years, made money off of it, and would argue that I probably know more (theoretical and practical) than your average bachelor's grad in CS.

And I don't know where this "random info on the internet" came from. My knowledge comes from algorithm textbooks or papers from university websites.

Why the vitriol?

-----


there are few more levels of knowledge and experience to achieve in order to improve overall quality of your work and that's the point of this article,

you can ALWAYS achieve your target in a better way

-----


You still seem to be advancing your original point that hobby programming or side projects is an inferior pursuit relative to professional programming. McAfee was a shareware project, eBay was written by Pierre in a matter of days. I've seen many projects that were of much higher quality than many professional enterprise and startup projects.

Is it possible to make coffeescript code auto formatting tool?

Does the lack of such tool make working with cs code harder? Specifically I mean maintaining and refactoring such code.
