Modern Web Frameworks : You understand why these matter, how they help, and what they
don’t do. You don't just know what MVC stands for, but you can tell us why it makes sense.
You’ve built sites using one ormore of Express, Rails, Django, ASP.NET MVC, Grails, or
AppEngine and you’ve read through the documentation on some of the others. You choose
between these platforms based on their merits and not based solely on your familiarity.
Service Integration: Stitching RESTful services that speak JSON to XML spewing SOAP

you have to, but have several strategies to avoid them.

a wireframe or a full visual mockup, not having them won’t cause you to produce an ugly result.
You’re a software engineer not a visual designer, but you can tell the difference between good
design and bad design. That we target a range of browsers across both mobile and desktop
platforms is pretty much a given. You’re a troubleshooter. When something is wrong you don’t
sit on your hands, you jump i, to solve it. Team Player: You’ll own your own work, but al, of us

have, you see potential for you to learn. You’re willing to share your knowledge and mentor
