Endomondo – how to set up a training plan for less weeks than the recommended settings

Today something from the border of hacking and stupid application settings. A month before the half marathon I’ve purchased Endomondo Premium. My goal was to use training plans provided by the application. My preparations run for over a month and I wanted to use help from the application. To my surprise, the minimum training period is six weeks. Seemingly small inconvenience, but much pain in the ass.

Bad practices of developers Part 1

I’m starting a series about bad practices that come across while working on various projects as a team.

This could happen even to experienced developers. An example from today:

<div>
….content here…..
</div>
<br/>
<br/>
<br/>
<br/>
<br/>
<div style=”text-align: left:margin-top:20px; margin-left:50px;margin-right: 50px”>
…….content here…….
</div>

This thing below is div that should be always at the bottom of the site. This document later is converted from html to PDF. The correct sollution in this case:

<div style=”text-align: left; padding-left:50px; padding-right: 50px; position: absolute; bottom: 10px;”>
</div>

The worst thing is that the upper part of the document is dynamic and sometimes some sections contain in one, two or three lines. The following provides a solution that div will always be at lower place.

This is why we have CSS.

Stay calm, keep your code good. Peace out. ;)
