    It was an utter fail as far as I'm concerned. One example: In his "close to be final" prototype, he started the document contents with <h1>, but the tag immediately following it was <h4>, then some subtitles after that were <h3>. There was no logical order at all. He used those tags as a way to style title fonts as far as I could tell. The entire page was littered with Bootstrap classes. It was a mess to me.
    He was telling my boss about things like keyword density, populating keyword meta tag with a few keywords and write text contents so that he would get the optimal keyword vs. total word count ratio, adding a bunch of open graph meta tags for Twitter and Facebook, and things like that. I didn't get to see him implement any of these things, though, because he started from how the site looked, not the site contents, and my boss fired him before he had a chance to get to that. He just whipped up a couple of templates (top and sub-page) with some random stock images and lorem ipsum texts all over the page. He probably spent no more than 15 minutes of his time at the most as it was pretty darn close to one of the default Pingendo templates.

    I knew he was way off on some key fundamentals, but I didn't know he was *this* bad. So much for calling me fu**in' noob. Never knew I would end up witnessing a highway robbery right at work!

    I have been reading a lot about web accessibility lately when I stumbled upon a certain video. It was an hour long video of a real blind screen reader user. She demonstrated how she browses the web on a daily basis using JAWS. I tell you guys it's not a joke! I feel like it solidified my understanding of what web accessibility is really about and what it's for!!!!!!!!!!!!!............

    Since we had a bump by a pointless poster magnet of this year and a half old thread, figured I'd see if I can get this to let me post my Medium article on this very topic.


    I'm starting to understand where/why people get deluded into frameworks, and it's a curious phenomenon. They seem to -- as was suggested in this thread (hell of a re-read) -- like the fact that it has a uniform predetermined set of rules for markup and style... which is screwed up as hell since HTML and CSS has those, and these frameworks DON'T USE THEM.

    At the heart of it that's what I really don't get. Why are people so dismissive of the rules of HTML/CSS, but will dive head-first into the rules of almost anything else? Even when those alternatives could get your arse dragged into court?

    How long does it take to finish this job, may I ask?

    I'm not going to debate on this thread. Just for reference.

    Thank you,
