“more than just picking a few JavaScript solutions”

Planning A Front-end JavaScript Application: Thoughtful piece by Cody Lindley over on the Telerik Developer Network. Even if you don’t agree with all of his points, he definitely sketches out a good framework for how to approach the problem of getting your application off the ground.

A couple of additional points here:

  1. Don’t get caught up in the specific technologies that Lindley is using in this article. They’re just there as examples, and he doesn’t appear to be strongly advocating for any of them — just that you consider something to fill in that blank on your project.
  2. There’s a bit of YMMV going on here depending on the specifics of your situation. That being said, most of the key lessons here should be easy to adapt — give or take a couple of questions on the checklist.

Again: look past any knee-jerk disagreements you might have (e.g., API first development; e.g., no RWD for “web apps”) and draw out the larger questions.
