Web and Mobile Application Developer, with a modicum of Design Skills. Pretty interested in Java, Obj-C, Python, PHP and Javascript questions; especially if frameworks/tools like the iOS SDK, jQuery, CodeIgniter and GWT are mentioned!

Although I do have major love for jQuery, I think it's not the answer to every question and try and "code efficiently" as far as the web goes; "if it can be done quicker server-side - do it server side" and "if it makes your DOM bloated or changes your DOM 101 times.. you're doing it wrong".

You'll probably find me posting on horribly outdated questions I find when researching other things, or adding awfully verbose answers that go too far in-depth and go against what the asker wants to here!

comment Tight Coupling Between Javascript, HTML, and CSS: A More Modern Approach?
Brilliant answer, +1. If only for mentioning data attributes as a mechanism for avoiding tight coupling

comment Tight Coupling Between Javascript, HTML, and CSS: A More Modern Approach?
Poor advice in my mind, especially when it comes to writing modular/reusable JS that should make no assumption on selectors. Data attributes are a better idea for these scenarios.

comment I'm looking for recommendations or advice on how to improve our workflow?
Swap 3 and 4. Get development in immediately, there's no point development reviews starting after client feedback. Feasibility assessments should be iterative throughout the design process in my mind, it's something that I'm trying to push for where I am at the moment. Unfortunately I think this is an issue that permeated throughout many digital agencies, where design is placed above every other discipline - leading to misunderstandings, confusion and general issues that are actually avoidable.

comment How does working in a team (in an OO project) work?
Thanks @DocBrown! @Prog - That's a very interesting question, and not one I'm entirely sure I can answer! Speaking from experience though, it seems entirely common for that kind of situation to exist at the beginning - or when a feature is being implemented. A developer may take ownership of their new feature (and thus, any new objects implemented) - however, when it gets merged back in to the codebase and maintenance commences it's very much whoever gets assigned a specific bug, hunting down that bug to wherever it actually lives!

Wow, so much for a quick answer. I suspect another edit may be required to get rid of some of those typos too...

comment Will it be a wrong idea to have <style> in <body>?
+1 for pointing towards the spec as well as noting lack of support for scoping (which is required to adhere to the spec). I think you should've read the answer before jumping the gun there @JukkaK.Korpela, very poor. You can't really get more trustworthy than the spec, and it answers the question perfectly. "Will it be a wrong idea to have style in body" - according to the spec "Yes it will be.".
