November 21, 2013. I need to learn more about Webix, backbone.js sencha extjs, jQuery and SVG.js. My goodness, the world has changed fast after html5 and CSS3 happened. I also discovered SharpVectors a SVG library for C#.
July 3, 2014 update. At this moment, SVG is being used in my project on the C# side for a few user interface aspects, but not as much as would like. I’m feeling quite hateful towards WPF and its lack of good tools for converting Adobe Illustrator format into SVG and from there into XAML. Little rounding errors in the decimal points was occurring during those conversions, and it messed up the alignment of carefully created graphics. That cost me thousands of dollars and months of time to figure out the problems and do time-consuming work-arounds. Anyway, I never did get SharpVectors added into my project, and I’m regretting it. I should have insisted to my coder to do it, instead of listening to the fanboy-ism for microsoft XAML.
About jQuery, I’m learning it, and using it more and more in my webpages. I’m a baby compared to everyone else in website professional development. Anyway, it’s an essential. jQuery. Must Get good it.
A few times, I’ve looked again at webix and backbone.js and sencha extjs, but didn’t see a need for them in my project right now. So that’s my status update.
