While they say a picture is worth a thousand words, not every image is
self-explanatory. Sometimes a few words of description or context can make the
difference between a confusing image and a clarifying one. That’s why image
captions are often a good idea.
I’ve always liked the idea of giving images captions, but I rarely do. And
why not? It seems to me that most image caption solutions out there:
- Require a lot of excess HTML,
- Make it difficult to redesign (because of the rigidity, usually),
- Don’t make the relationship between image and caption clear, or
- All of the above.
Patrick started developing websites at the age of 25, only using HTML and building simple websites. Through the years his passion for designing and developing grew, and his career moved in that direction in the year 2004, when he decided to try and get a job in ICT and Web Development.
He got this chance at WE ICT, based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. For the first couple of years he combined network management for customers with creating database-driven websites in ASP. Since 2008 his main work is on the developing part.
While ASP is still his favorite language, he's slowly trying to dive into ASP.NET and discover all of the possibilities.
