I’m sure there are many of the same memories here.

  • I learned HTML from view source on AOL web pages :-)
  • Netscape vs IE and the real struggle of writing web apps using JavaScript and CSS
  • Nested tables to get a single pixel border
  • actually using the blink tag and not joking about it.
  • Visual InterDev
  • Cold Fusion, the rise and fall
  • When Java was born
  • When nodejs was born
  • Silverlight the rise and fall
  • ASP+ aka .NET creation
  • Amazon was just a bookstore
  • 😡 that I didn’t create eBay, Netflix when they came out as I ran teams building these same apps!?!? 🤦‍♂️

There are more, but know I’m feeling old, 😂- thanks for the thread @ben
