When developing using newer technology, it is important for smaller information technology organizations to have universally accepted set of best practices to be able to successfully complete that type of endeavor. How can these universally accepted set of best practices be developed? Conducting research on accepted best practices can build the basis for your theories and assumptions. Next, in the context of your applications, develop an example application in the newer technology to test your theories and assumptions. Build the application like a construction project, the initial design is the blueprint, the database is the foundation and the user interface is the actual building. When you get right down to it, the principals of simplicity, consistency and user interaction are always best practices in developing applications.
