What's is a reasonable hourly rate for a one-man business? (UK)

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 13:21

Hi guys,

I've been running my own business since April this year. Everything has been going okay I've been charging £30 inc. VAT. Is this an okay rate or am I being too cheap? I'm a php developer with loads of experience and really good portfolio.

Thanks

@edit I just noticed the title very sorry for the typo. Can't modify it.

Could use some help with developing a 'superhero'-themed color scheme

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 13:20

I'm pretty new to web design, especially color theory, and I'm working on a superhero-themed web app that I'd like to use lots of your standard 'superhero' colors with -- reds, blues, and golds are pretty prominent examples. But those are all pretty distinct colors, and I am struggling with figuring out how they should work together. I was hoping to get some input, suggestions, or maybe some links to websites that incorporate these colors well so that I could take a look at them.

I found these three color schemes: Government, Patriotic Gold, and Mayfair. I think they all fit the theme to some extent, although in the case of Government there's not any red. What do you all think?

How can I create a simple contact form, pls?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 12:29

Hello everyone, I'm really not good in data processing but I need a contact form.

Thing is that,

1) I don't want to be the only one who receive messages, I want to add my friends e-mail adress to this contact form too.

2) Is it possible to hide the e-mail adress? I don't want that my friends know how many people had a copy of those messages.

Can someone help me?

How do you deal with critical, longtime neglected bugs in web browsers?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 12:26

For me, there are at least 1 critical bug per each browser that may or may not potentially break my application.

  • Safari - Bug 153852 - <body> with overflow:hidden CSS is scrollable on iOS
    • Unable to prevent scrolling of body without additional css (position, others, ...) sometimes results in side effects, and might break other things, so I am just waiting on Apple to fix this long time bug. After all, "hidden" value should work just like it is expected to from W3C definition.
      • "This value indicates that the box’s content is clipped to its padding box and that the UA must not provide any scrolling user interface to view the content outside the clipping region, nor allow scrolling by direct intervention of the user, such as dragging on a touch screen or using the scrolling wheel on a mouse. However, the content must still be scrollable programatically, for example using the mechanisms defined in [CSSOM-VIEW], and the box is therefore still a scroll container."
  • Chrome - Issue 112538 - Html5 <input type="file" multiple="multiple" /> limits the number of files that can be selected.
    • Basically, if the file name characters go over 32k, the chrome ignores the input, and no event on javascript gets fired as if nothing happened. On Firefox or Safari, this works just fine.
  • Firefox - Never encountered a critical bug so far. Everything that worked in Chrome, worked in Firefox.
  • Internet Explorer - Requires separate threads just for this, but since GitHub (Microsoft) is dropping the support for IE... why should I?

Bugs that I listed for Safari and Chrome has been sitting there at least 5 years so far in the bug report section for each browser, and it seems like no one in the development team wants to fix them.

How do you deal with bugs that cannot be fixed by you? Just don't use them?

Question about facebook login: Developing in a remote dev machine, no domain, not using https.

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 11:51

I'm developing an express api using a remote dev machine. That means I ssh to the dev machine and use vim to work on the source files and I'm testing the app using my local browser via ip address.

I'm trying to add fb login to my app. But fb only allows localhost it doesn't allow ip address. Any way I can test fb login using just ip address?

Taking over a project as a sole, junior developer. What do i need to know?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 11:47

I'm taking a job as a sole developer on a wordpress project as a junior developer for a friend of my friend.

I have a year experience working for a company but never been a sole developer on a project before.
I think this could be a massive learning opportunity as I cant rely on anyone but myself, so pretty excited.

My question is what kind of approach should i take to this?
As in receiving the existing codebase, planning with the non-tech boss, security for the site.

The tech is Wordpress and PHP.

What steps will be best to take?

All help and tips for beginning this project will be much appreciated!

Wondering where to start

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 11:15

Hello all,

I’m looking to make a career change into software development and would like to know where to start. What languages are going to be the most important and what is the best way to learn them? I just started using Codecademy but is there something better? I’m new to this sub so excuse me if this is not the right place to be asking this.

Thanks.

What projects will you contribute to during this year's hacktober fest?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 11:13

We're now only 10 days away from the start of this year's Hacktoberfest. As you may know, Hacktoberfest is a yearly challenge hosted by GitHub and DigitalOcean (and Twilio?). The challenge is about contributing to open source projects on GitHub.

If you're going to participate, what project are you thinking of contributing to? Personally I'm thinking of contributing to the FreeCodeCamp guide, but I would be interested in knowing what projects other people might contribute to.

Happy (almost) Hacktoberfest

What is your front end process?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 10:51

What is your process?

Do you work out each div entirely in detail before moving to the next, or do you first create the skeleton of the page?

ExpressJS/NodeJS and Object Orientated Programming

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 09/20/2018 - 10:44

I'm new to the industry, but it seems like most companies seem to test/emphasize OOP knowledge heavily during the interview process even when their stack is based mostly in javascript/NodeJS/typescript.

I'm confused how this would be applicable to developing backend applications/APIs using a framework like ExpressJS?

For example, a sample GET route in pseudo code:

app.get('/', async(req, res) => { const exampleData = await database.querySomething() res.send(exampleData) })

It seems to me the coding style for creating these REST APIs is somewhat procedural. E.g. receive a request, make some database action or query based on the parameters, add in calculations/data wrangling, send back the final data.

Where does OOP come into play? What would be a use case for OOP in back end nodejs applications?
