We all know the value of dependency management, DRY, abstractions and loose coupling when we're building our back-end architectures, but when it comes to writing the UI for our web applications, we often fall back into the habit of copy'n'paste code reuse, invisible dependencies, mixing presentation and behaviour, using inline styles and JavaScript, and other bad habits.

Dylan Beattie

Dylan Beattie is a developer based in London, where he works as the tech lead at Spotlight, developing software for the theatre and casting industry. He wrote his first web page in 1994. Three years later, he found out what the Web actually was, and promptly abandoned a career in mathematics because programming looked way more fun and had at least as many brackets. He's been building Web apps on Microsoft technology since ASP was part of the Windows NT 4 Option Pack, and he was writing server-side domain models in JavaScript way before it was cool. He even once ran code in JScript.NET.
