I started learning web development with the most basic tools: Notepad and HTML. It was all just tinkering for a few years, then I dug into CSS, Javascript, PHP and MySQL at a job where those skills were needed. A couple of jobs later, I'm working in Ruby on Rails, using Rspec and Cucumber, and gearing up to work with Riak.

comment Should date validation allow “091011”?
"Be liberal in what you accept" can actually backfire. Incorrect HTML markup is ambiguous; if browsers had historically rejected and refused to display it, coders would have learned to do it right. Instead they took a best guess how how to display it, and each one guessed differently. Then we got lots of bad legacy markup for which browsers had to maintain backwards compatability.
