Quick list of some lessons I learned in the last year
Never make a client wait
I've made and continue to make mistakes while experimenting. My earliest design faux pas was forcing clients to wait on long page loads while applications daisy chain remote APIs (big no no). A better way to connect remote APIs is through asynchronous calls or background processes.
After reviewing posts from the last year or so on lesson's learned, I've decided to write my second ebook on the subject. There are many topics that would be much better served by a long format. I've wanted to stress test Anthologize with a few hundred posts, and it's been over a year since my first mini-ebook.
