How to keep framework development simple and bug-free

WEB DEVELOPMENT | July 29, 2015

In order to maintain a steady clientele, it is imperative to provide reliable services. The presence of bugs destroys the faith of customers. 

A few methods are enlisted below which would help in removing and restricting bugs

  1. Proper examination of plans before coding
  2. Making a viewable listing
  3. Conducting a trial of the finalized version in actuality
  4. Having a worksheet tracking method
  5. Sorting and solving problems

Proper examination of plans before coding

Involving the customers and consulting with them at each level of operation, before the plan is initiated is helpful to sort out the complications. Unimaginative ideas or broken web pages can destroy any project. It is therefore important to jot down the ideas and review them before moving on to the next one. Sharpie markers are quite helpful in making sketches for web pages. Sketches are extremely handy for preparing diverse configurations for different screens depending on the device and allied factors. A web page outlined by a sharpie marker or Copic shader reveals the overall appearance, arrangement of components, and how far it can be resized to suit screens of mobile phones. 

Making a viewable listing 

Designing is inadvertently linked with viewing. Different designers should communicate with each other regarding their conceived illustrations; transforming the imagined abstraction into a visible blueprint facilitates the interaction even more. Working on the digital versions of the etched design is fine, but it is more helpful to print a copy of the outlined design and work on it by making the necessary changes. The changes can then be applied as per suitability on the digital soft copy. Making a visible or viewable listing is a bit difficult, but this approach can be applied while preparing mobile friendly sites. 

Conducting a trial of the finalized version in actuality 

It might seem that after spending a considerable amount of time on designing the next stage would be direct implementation, but before initiating the process of official implementation it is mandatory to check and recheck the adaptability and suitability of all attributes and features of the developed framework. A minor miscalculation can cause serious damage to one’s reputation. The designing procedure should include prompt emphasis according to substantial responses. As soon as the process of coding begins, the trials are to be started as well. Finalized designs ought to support a plethora of devices. Therefore, to ensure maximum usability pre-launch testing should be carried out meticulously on several devices. 

Having a worksheet tracking method 

Designs are prone to many inadvertent problems, some lack popularity while others appear to be incompetent. A worksheet that will contain information regarding the viability of designs, record the problems and update the solutions are indeed useful. The tracking of issues will aid the process of rectification. All reports and complaints can be recorded in the database and can be resolved accordingly. 

Sorting and solving problems 

Even after a lot of trial and experimentation many elements remain quirky on certain browsers. Designing is not just about imaginatively etching web pages, but to ensure the functioning of all components in that webpage. The worksheet will give necessary data for possible rectification. Problem solving should always be carried out with a steady mind. Solving technical and design problems is hard enough without overhead, so we rely on a plain old shared Google spreadsheet to keep track of what works and what doesn’t. Specifically, we track everything that can be clicked per page or view. The rules are deceptively simple.
