10 Things You Should Never Say To A Front-End Web Developer

“Front-end” engineers are the people who build the parts of Web sites that you actually see.
That’s opposed to “back-end” engineers, who work on all the stuff behind the scenes — for instance, like storing information you enter (like your name) in a database, or making sure that an e-commerce site can take your order.
When working with someone like Bridges, you should know as much as you can about different types of technologies. You also shouldn’t assume a transition to another platform is easy.
“It is important to know what you want out of the developer so you can articulate your expectations clearly,” he said.
To help, he shared 10 things you should never say to a front end engineer:
10. I’m looking for a front end designer: “Designers tend to always work on the ‘front-end.’ If you’re differentiating between front- and back-end, you’re looking for a developer. Those “de-” words are tricky.”…

“It is important to know what you want out of the developer so you can articulate your expectations clearly,” he said.

To help, he shared 10 things you should never say to a front end engineer:

10. I’m looking for a front end designer: “Designers tend to always work on the ‘front-end.’ If you’re differentiating between front- and back-end, you’re looking for a developer. Those “de-” words are tricky.”…

9. Can we add a nice littleFlash animation right here?“Flash is dead! We animate with JavaScript now!”

8. Can we change the background to this? How about this? Hmm, go back to the other one:“If you don’t have a clear idea of what you want, be careful. You could end up wasting the developer’s time and, more importantly, your money.”

7. Did you use Java to do that? “When picking up on buzzwords, ‘Java’ and ‘JavaScript’ sound like the same thing. In fact, they are very different!”

6. I was thinking drop down menus for the navigation: “Drop down menus were popular tricks back in the day, but with the rising popularity of tablets and other touch devices, mouse-over doesn’t really work the same way it used to.”

5. I wonder how this looks on my phone: “If you didn’t plan on building a mobile-compatible site, you will likely not be impressed… and you might make your developer nauseous if you bring it up unexpected.”

4. Would it be hard to turn this into an iPhone/Android app? “Yes.”

3. This just doesn’t feel like native: “If you want native interaction, build an app! If your project doesn’t call for an app, it probably doesn’t demand highly nuanced interaction either.”

2. Can we make that real time? “Real time isn’t something that can just be tacked on. Also, in most cases, it is either killing the server or killing device battery life. If you don’t ABSOLUTELY need it, don’t go barking up that tree.”

1. My grandma said the site doesn’t work in Internet Explorer 6: “To express how this makes me feel… (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻”

Bridges works at Wantful, an artisan gifting startup, as a software engineer. Prior to that, he worked for Snapguide, Meedeor, and other startups.
