A couple of topics will be touching upon jQuery for demonstration, yet this article is neither about jQuery nor about writing plugins for it.

The computer is a moron.” Don’t write code for morons, write for humans! — Peter Drucker

 1. Fluent Interface

The Fluent Interface is often referred to as Method Chaining (although that’s only half the truth). To beginners it looks like the jQuery style. While I believe the API style was a key ingredient in jQuery’s success, it wasn’t invented by them — credits seem to go to Martin Fowler who coined the term back in 2005, roughly a year before jQuery was released. Fowler only gave the thing a name, though — Fluent Interfaces have been around

 1. Use code convections

Coding conventions are a set of guidelines for a specific programming language that recommend programming style, practices and methods for each aspect of a piece program written in this language. These conventions usually cover file organization, indentation, comments, declarations, statements, white space, naming conventions, programming practices, programming principles, programming rules of thumb, architectural best practices, etc. These are guidelines for software structural quality. Software programmers are highly recommended to follow these guidelines to help improve the readability of their source code and make software maintenance easier.

  • Form A1

Before being able to write these documents you will need to decide what type of company suits your plans better. There are a number of company types:

The shares in a company are owned by its shareholders.

We are aware of the difficulties that involve trying to reach new customers. We know that there are many other organizations with similar plans in mind and that some of them have been around for a while and have a lot of resources available. That makes harder to compete against them but we have a plan to achieve a positive brand perception and we believe that, even though it is too early to try to compete with the big players in metrics like sales or profit, is never too early to compete
