Discussion on: Frontend, backend - let's be friends again

Huh? There was frontend. In my own and many colleagues' experiences, it was similarly separate, albeit in slightly different ways. We frontend folks weren't considered real engineers back then, not with our managed hosting, relatively simple query-and-display code using templates, and our design sensibility that cared more about human factors than about what Facebook funded. Some people say that frontend folks had a desperate need to prove they were just as SMRT as any engineer and that some of them decided to make frontend more like backend and ruin it for everyone else. A mess has certainly been made, but who can really say why.

That aside, this next generation of stuff that tightens the integration is very exciting. I'm particularly interested in no-sweat trisomorphic rendering.
