Short, Self Contained, Correct Example Short, Self Contained, Correct (Compilable), Example If you are having a problem with some code and seeking help, preparing a Short, Self Contained, Correct Example (SSCCE) is very useful. But what is an SSCCE? It is all in the name, really. Short (Small) - Minimise bandwidth for your example, do not bore the audience.Self Contained - Ensure everything is included, ready to go.Correct - Copy, paste, (compile,) see is the aim.Example - Displays the problem you are trying to solve. Short This depends on the group or forum. Tricks for Trimming If your GUI has 40 buttons not related to the problem, remove them. The array or table that is causing a problem may have a hundred entries, but again, if the problem can be seen with two or three entries, trim your example to that alone. If your problem is a GUI layout problem, trim all the processes (JavaScript/Java methods etc.) from behind it. Problem Solved? Self Contained You are much more likely to receive help if you do this.

Top 10 best practices for front-end web developers Explain which div you’re closing Most of the time when I’m viewing a website source, I see, at the very bottom of the page, an almost endless list of closing </div> tags. In fact, many beginners think they just have to use divs instead of tables to produce quality code. Divs are cleaners than tables, but without proper code organization, it can be as (or even sometimes more) messy as table based code.
