    What things should a programmer implementing the technical details of a web site address before making the site public? If Jeff Atwood can forget about HttpOnly cookies, sitemaps, and cross-site request forgeries all in the same site, what important thing could I be forgetting as well?

    I'm thinking about this from a web developer's perspective, such that someone else is creating the actual design and content for the site. So while usability and content may be more important than the platform, you the programmer have little say in that. What you do need to worry about is that your implementation of the platform is stable, performs well, is secure, and meets any other business goals (like not cost too much, take too long to build, and rank as well with Google as the content supports).

    Think of this from the perspective of a developer who's done some work for intranet-type applications in a fairly trusted environment, and is about to have his first shot and putting out a potentially popular site for the entire big bad world wide web.

    What you want can be implemented more effectively, if you will think by the testing perspective because it is very difficult for the developers to find their own bugs, the best thing he can have is security check and leave resat on the testers.

    A good developer should have proper knowledge of technology then he knows about user interface, website security, bug fixing, website designing and appearance in front of public and the website must be user friendly.

    The most important thing according to me is that the website must be user friendly. It must be attractive so that it can attract many audiences.
