In the Trenches: What’s Your Biggest Web Dev Challenge?

Hello Everyone,

Hope you’re all in good spirits and your code is bug-free! 

Today, let’s gather around the virtual campfire and share tales from the trenches of web development. We’ve all been there – up against a coding challenge that seemed insurmountable, hours deep in Stack Overflow threads, and sipping way too much coffee. 

So, what’s that one challenge in web development that really pushed your limits? Maybe it was untangling a complex API, or getting CSS to behave across different browsers (looking at you, Internet Explorer). Or perhaps, it was learning a new framework that felt like decoding an alien language at first.

Share your epic ‘Aha!’ moments, the trials and triumphs, and maybe even a snippet of the problem-solving genius that saved the day.

Let’s turn our challenges into a collective learning experience – because let’s face it, sometimes the best teacher is a good old-fashioned coding conundrum.

Looking forward to your stories of coding valor and victory!

@sibertJan 17.2024 — There are two main challenges.

1. LOTS of moving parts.
You have to many "languages". Go (in my case), HTML, CSS, Javascript, JSON, libraries etc. Besides this you have to master VPS servers, Debian, Systemd, Nginx etc. And finally you have to master DNS, IP, sub domains, firewalls etc. To mention some of the moving parts.

2. Web developing is a moving target
All these moving parts are not fixed. You cannot learn ONCE, it is a constant learning process. This in combination with all moving parts is a real challenge. At least for me.

Working with CMS and several interpreted languages, I have encountered the limitations and challenges of interpreted languages.

One aha! moment was when I discovered Go as foundation for web development. For an example working with Go HTML templates is way simpler than using Angular. And Go works both for the frontend and backend. Another example is the ability to "embed" your assets into a single executable. Superfast and simple.
