This is not what I was expecting to hear since the post was titled, “Is jQuery always the answer?” To that, I could easily agree, no it is not.
Yep. jQuery may not be the right solution
But Does The Logic Make Sense?
First, if you want to use that logic, you should be doing all of your programming in ones and zeros. I mean REALLY! Come on people. The who reason we have assembly language is so we don’t have to do that. The reason C was created was so we don’t have to write assembly language. In fact, every progression in programming has been so that we have to know less and less about the internals and so we can just get the job at hand done.
Is Being Lazy Bad?
Good programmers ARE lazy to a certain extent. That’s one of the things that makes them good. Having programmed now for 20 years, I’m at the point where I don’t want to write any more code than I have to. I copy and paste more code than I write, or I buy a library, or find something open source.
Keep the eye on the ball people.
