Coding On The Internet
In Bringing Creativity Back To The Internet, we discussed bringing creativity back to the Internet, of the possibilities and opportunities of learning web design and other web languages. In this article, we turn to the code that actually makes the web run the way it does.
The Internet is a world hidden with background technology that makes it run. It allows you to type anything into your address bar on your web browser, and bring up any type of information, usually using Google, Yahoo, or Bing search engines. When you search for something on the Internet, you receive a list of websites, that bring up results as close to your search as possible.
It is quite wonderful that many websites, including Medium make it so not a single code has to ever be written, but the knowledge of understanding basic code is lost. With code comes logic and for many programmers, code is poetry. Writing beautiful logical code and seeing the results of that work is what pays off. When we get paid for the results of our work, it is even more rewarding.
Most users on Medium write without giving a second thought to all the hours of code that made it possible to write a simple blog post that somehow looks gorgeous. The designers of Medium specifically chose the layout, fonts, and point-and-click format methods to appeal to users. It was made to be easy to use so the user can completely focus on writing. It has, however, eliminated the need to know any code at all. Why is this an issue? You are limited to how you want your blog post to look.
There is a reason why people may love the simplicity of not knowing any code: the focus is on the content and nothing else. This might be a great philosophy to have, as content is king, and tends to be more important nowadays than code, but it is code that allows for the creativity in the design, and thus, with code, the limitations and set rules can be broken resulting in a more desired layout.
