Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

While MVC has been a staple of web development for the past few years, most libraries and frameworks fail to adhere to one of its most important principles: keeping logic out of the view layer. The consequences of not having logicfree markup include complex dependencies, difficulty testing and inability to reuse code. Recent DSLs like Mustache are available for many languages and platforms and have started to turn the trend. They allow editing in any tool, without extra requirements for language support and provide huge gains for UI development and overall application design.
