Alex's customers were having issues with a web project management console developed by a coworker. Upon opening the code to see what was causing all the JavaScript errors, he learned that the original developer was clearly an expert in web development standards. The code file itself was JavaScript. The use of the .css() function definitely proved his mastery of Cascading Style Sheets. Hard-coded tags demonstrated his deep knowledge of HTML. Finally, his variable naming scheme is essential to maintaining the coveted "Now I Know My ABC's" certification.

var i = "DivContainer";
var j = "DEFAULT";
var k = "DEFAULT";
var l = a(document.createElement("select")).css("min-width", "200px").append(a(document.createElement("option")).val(""));
var m = a(document.createElement("select")).css("min-width", "200px").append(a(document.createElement("option")).val(""));
var n = a(document.createElement("select")).css("min-width", "200px").append(a(document.createElement("option")).val(""));
var o = a(document.createElement("input")).attr("name", "group1").attr("id", "RessRadio").attr("type", "radio");
var p = a(document.createElement("input")).css("width", "250px").attr("type", "text");
var q = a(document.createElement("input")).attr("id", "HiddenRessID").attr("type", "hidden");
var r = a(document.createElement("input")).attr("name", "group1").attr("type", "radio");
var s = a(document.createElement("input")).css("width", "250px").attr("type", "text");
var t = a(document.createElement("input")).attr("type", "hidden");
var u = a(document.createElement("a")).addClass("JButton").text("Display");
var v = a(document.createElement("label")).css("color", "Red");
var w = a(document.createElement("label")).text(" Display all employees assigned to a project: ");
var x = a(document.createElement("label")).text(" Display all projects assigned to an employee: ");
var y = a(a(this)[0]);

y.append("");
f = a(document.createElement("div"));
f.css("border-top", "1px solid Gray").css("width", "450px").css("padding", "5px");
f.append(a(document.createElement("table")).append(a(document.createElement("tr")).append(a("").append(a("").text("President:"))).append(a("").append(l))).append(a(document.createElement("tr")).append(a("").append(a("").text("Vice-president:"))).append(a("").append(m))).append(a(document.createElement("tr")).append(a("").append(a("").text("Head office:"))).append(a("").append(n))));
y.append(f);
y.append(a(document.createElement("br")));
y.append(u);

Of course, since there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, sometimes they need to be redefined. Sometimes they even need to be redefined within the same function.

var k = function(a, b, c, d) {
  var e = false;
  a(d).autocomplete({
    source: b,
    minLength: 2,
    select: function(a, b) {
      a = true;
  }
};

Alex's coworker is no longer with the company, which may be the safest thing for everyone.
