Kinda stopped developing… taking a rest.

If I could give you, dear reader(s? perhaps being presumptious here), a tip when developing a website it would be to separate user action logging from analysis of said data. That’s because you are always going to analise things differently after a few weeks… it’s a temptation to just streamline everything from user_click to data_base change but avoid it.

 

Example: suppose I want to record views in a document. A straight-forward way of implementing this would be to create a counter… but what if a user is flooding views? You would have to scrap previous views. Log_user_view… then… analise user_action… then change view counter 🙂

That applies to everything btw. Data_submition, likes/kudos, whatever…
