Microsoft Shutting Down Internet Explorer – A Relief for Web Developers?

Just read the news that Microsoft is shutting down it’s oh-NOT-so-famous browser brand. For first I took a deep breath. I can remember my web development days, when I used to manage websites with extra effort to make it compatible with IE. There were so many UI bugs that I fixed and many I produced while working for IE. Everyone hates it, an open secret. Even Microsoft has made mocking campaigns on IE6 to promote the image of IE.

Twitter app idea: Urdu poetry meme

Just hit an idea to write a Twitter bot or a meme that will collect Urdu poetry tweets specified by a hashtag stores it in it’s database. And people who will follow that account will get a poetry tweet daily. Why it’s looking interesting to me because I can’t find such account who shared poetry in Urdu script. That’s appealing rather having it in Roman which can be seen in abundance. Will do a quick POC on it, have to see Twitter API after ages since I left exploring it.

Every developer was writing it’s JDBC DAO layer. This thing came in debate many times that why not to use an ORM like popular Hibernate. But the decision was not taken company wide and they stick with writing JDBC code.
