Re: Lazy Devs

Think I'm the last of a dying breed who puts function over form.

Well, I deal with emergencies and in that case data has a serious priority over flash (pardon the pun). You can't believe the fights I've had with Marketing Directors that wanted to make sure emergency resources were "branded correctly", which usually added a lot of crud to pages that would weigh them down and make them less portable. It usually stops when I propose to put the Marketing drone on point for emergencies, i.e. he, she or it would have to go in first in case of emergency with any rescue team, to ensure bodies of dead staff are still correctly branded when they'll be on the news.

The only images I permit are those that help immediate understanding. Plans, descriptions, layouts, diagrams, fine. Heavy CSS and images so it is inline with brand guidelines, nope. Bare is better.

Grrr.
