OK – Had a quick JavaScript refresher course. The language itself was not an issue. It may have been about 15 years since my last major sojourn into JavaScript, but its a c-like language so no issues.

Did need to refresh on the DOM and other Global objects (window), plus how to integrate with media and events. I do now have a working structure for setting specific values depending on device type, orientation, browser and window size. It’s a bit clunky at the moment (too many IF statements), plus I want to better integrate CSS and JavaScript.

One interesting thing is that this is all being instigated and executed Client-Side. Not an issue with the amount of data we are downloading, but when I was last doing this kind of coding, the emphasis was very much on “Do whatever you can Server side to minimise what you download.”

My chronological age is about twice my self-image age and about three times that of my maturity. I have two daughters and they both seemed to me to be older than me by the time they were twelve.
