Thread: Web application design techniques

  1. #1

    Web application design techniques

    Hi

    I'm a huge advocate for 'design first - code later'. It's a philosophy that
    has saved me a number of times, but I'm having trouble applying my VB design
    techniques to web apps. The non-linear options in a web app invariably mean
    I end up doing a lot of code that I didn't originally plan. My current
    project is a lot messier than I would like. I was wondering if anyone can
    suggest books or websites that cover effective ways to design a web
    application. I'm not interested in actual code (I'm quite comfortable with
    that), just the high-level design techniques. I've heard some people
    mention wire-diagrams and other techniques. Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Craig

    I would also recommend anything from Wrox press, whether it be architectural
    considerations, or actual coding technique, they tend to cover the whole
    gamut fairly well.
