In episode 19, "Keepin' it Clean: Clean Coding Concepts" Mike and Cheryl talk about the need for clean code and script in web design -- whether it's PHP, HTML, CSS or XML -- and what can happen when things go wrong.
- If you need to dig into code, check out W3 Schools for reference, tutorials and code validators
- When debugging, it's critical to perform cross-browser testing. We generally do this manually by loading sites in multiple browsers on Windows and Mac machines but SmashingMag offers this Review of Tools & Services (from 2010) for this purpose. (Do you have a favourite tool? Let us know!)
- While trying to sort out our RSS woes, Cheryl found Feed Validator to be ridiculously helpful.
- Mike also recommends CSS3 Generator for clean CSS code.
