Hey, guys. Things always go up and down. At least according to my sales graph, we’re breaking sales records this month. :)

@Jeffrey – thanks for confirming that :)

I too have noticed declining sales in March which I thought was due to the competition. This is the first time I’ve entered a competition but my observation suggests to not enter another one as during competitions marketplace is flooded with all sorts of files which subsequently disrupts the natural picking in sale for every item submitted.

I could and like to be wrong. What does everyone else think?

Good effort, but I should have been more clear. I meant the actual icon with lighter background, not the background of the image.

@jwcpeak – Firstly I’d like to clear the air and say what I think with all due respect.

I’ve been writing JavaScript code since 1998. I “grew up” with the DOM . I’m not intimidated by the DOM and multiple browser versions. I prefer using DOM objects. jQuery centers around the jQuery object.

You are good, but don’t think jQuery users are hopeless. For example I too have lived JavaScript every day for number of years as a software developer not just a web developer. I’ve been part of a team who developed a compiler technology for converting high level OOP code into JavaScript. It’s used by the US army, a number of french financial institutions, World Peace and etc. I’ve ported jQuery and PrototypeJS libraries into high level OOP code.

But being a JavaScript heavy weight has nothing to do with the fact that time is money. With the help of libraries like jQuery people can code for many years and not come across the example in your reply. Programming languages are as good as their libraries and if JavaScript wasn’t the only language for doing things in browser, I promise you would have never heard about it.

What’s so hard about libraries? They have their own APIs for working with the DOM and XHR objects, as well as plugin architectures. Some also have alternatives for pseudo-classical reference types and object creation. It isn’t rocket surgery. I’ve spent enough time with jQuery, MooTools, and Prototype to know what they’re capable of. Nothing disingenuous about that.

Again I agree to a certain extent, but that statement is missing the point of jQuery. It’s not the plugin architecture with thousands of plugins nor the method chaining and other interesting things offered by jQeury that has made it so popular. It’s simply the way that jQuery allows traversing the DOM tree. There had been nothing out there before jQuery that allowed traversing the DOM so elegantly.

for (var ii = 0; ii < someNodeList.length; ii++) {
    var el = someNodeList[ii];
    el.onclick = function() {
        alert(ii);
    };
}

The correct answer is no, you can’t. It’s a common mistake, and it’s just one of several aspects of JavaScript that’s different than other languages. JavaScript is different than most other languages. Forgetting that will cause headaches down the road.

If you don’t know that closures are dependent on the surrounding environment, you’ll probably scratch your head for a while but eventually figure it out and move on. Algorithms on the other hand matter, especially if you are pedantic about overhead and if you are then pleeeeease know what really matters;

When you need to quickly sort 10000 JS objects, do you use bucket sort or radix sort? What is the difference anyway? When developing a game in Canvas, what path finding algorithm is good to use? Can you work out the big O notation for an algorithm to know its complexity? can you look at one and say how badly it’s going to execute?

knowing all the gotchas in JavaScript is good if you are a perpetual JavaScript coder but it won’t help land a job in Microsoft because experienced programmers don’t see the language, they see the library and think algorithms.

I agree with you guys to certain extend, but people use jQuery and other libraries simply to save time and I can appreciate that. They also have different priorities; what’s the point of writing your own code when a bug free version of the same thing is already written for you.

I think that someone would become a better programmer by learning the language and browsers and writing their own work first.

Knowing distinct programming patterns and algorithms is more important than knowing the language. Otherwise coding is like talking without thinking.

@katrosixteen, have you tried this with a lighter background? I think it will look good.

DenonStudio I officially disqualify myself, because there are so much awesome entries, that mine have no chance… I take my logos down

Event though this is a competition, we should have some fun while we are at it. You are being your own biggest critic and I thought you had a good design there. Please don’t disqualify yourself :)

@katrosixteen, good stuff. I thought if you want the background to be the color you’ve chosen then it maybe a good idea to make the right half of the logo more contrasting because right now they are very similar. Otherwise the logo is super.
