OnVoiceOver{{ Edition #2: WebPatterns

OnVoiceOver{{ Edition #2: WebPatterns: "Q&A: WebPatterns
by John Lampard

John Allsopp is a Sydney based software developer and co-founder of Westciv, producers of CSS editor, Style Master. He is also an organiser of the annual Web Essentials conference, and was one of the first members of the Web Standards Project.

In the first of our Q&A interview formats, we speak to John about his latest project: WebPatterns.

OnVoiceOver (OVO): So just what is a web pattern?

John Allsopp (JA): “Design Patterns” have been used in software development for coming up to 20 years now, and well known for at least a decade. The probably slightly badly named idea of “patterns” started in the early 1970s in the field of architecture, with a group of academic architects centred around Christopher Alexander."
