UI Frameworks are not simple. In fact, they can be almost as complicated to learn as a new programming language. Given that, why bother to use something like Semantic UI? What does one get in return for the investment of time and frustration? Why not just use raw HTML and CSS? Are the software engineering benefits of UI frameworks?
For this assignment, create an engaging and informative essay about UI Frameworks. You might want to discuss some of the issues raised above, as well as your own personal experience with Semantic UI. Or perhaps you’ve also used another framework such as Twitter Bootstrap. In that case, it might be interesting to read your perspective on a comparison of the two.
Feel free to go in another direction entirely, as long as you are discussing UI Frameworks, and as long as the result is interesting, informative, and insightful. Write for the world!
By the time and date indicated on the Schedule page, write a technical essay regarding this module. You can use the issues above as a starting point, but write a stand-alone essay: don’t just answer them like it’s a homework assignment! Once you’ve finished the essay submit it using Laulima.
Please note the following:
Your submission should be a URL providing a direct link to your essay (not a link to the home page of your portfolio, nor a link to the essays directory page). If the link does not work, you will not get credit for your essay.
An entry for your essay must also appear in the Essays page of your portfolio. Check this before submission. If it is not listed, it’s probably because your YAML front matter is incorrect. See the Essay Content section of the TechFolio documentation for details.
Be sure that your essay is ready for evaluation before submitting it via Laulima. I often click on the link as soon as I receive the submisison. If the essay is empty or only partially complete when I click on the link, you might not receive credit.
Be sure that your essay satisfies all of the criteria in the Technical Essay Style Guide. You should click in this link and review the guidelines each time before submission.
