8 Takeaways From 8 Years in the Software Industry
- I’ve been there, of course, and it got me thinking what I learned since then working full time as a software developer.
- But trust me, if you’re passionate about software development, love to write code and are always eager to learn more, you already know a lot and you deserve your spot.
- And if things like that don’t work out, again, maybe it’s time to look elsewhere.
- Many people learn a lot through side projects, though, and maybe even get opportunities for a better job thanks to their side projects or thanks to the new skills they acquire while working on their side projects.
- Trying to make things better and suggesting some improvements did not help at all, so I learned Web API 2 with a side project, applied for a new job where they needed someone with this knowledge and in fact got the position.
Using the same blogging software for 20 years
- I recall spending way too much time writing the code, trying to get it perfect and worrying if I should use anchor points to intrablog links or how to automatically generate the archive page and how it should look.
- And for the record, that release of the code did not use anchor points for intrablog links (and I still don't—that was the correct call in retrospect), it didn't bother with automatically generating the archive page (and it still doesn't—I have a separate script that generates it) and this is what the archive looks like today (you can see that 2012 was the year I blogged the least).
Progressive Web Apps - The why, the how, and the why not
- First things first, to know if we want to to use or not an specific technology, we need to understand it, so let's get into the basics.
- Looking like a native app: You'll be able to hide the navigator bars, change the colors of the phone task-bar to an specific one, and it also gives your ninja-website a pretty icon to show at the user's home screen, as well as a splash screen.
- If you want to know if your website lacks of in terms of PWA, you can run the Chrome's tool Lighthouse to get some hints on what you need.
- As you can see, it's not an easy choice to become a PWA user, but, after reading this article, you may think that this technology is what you want, if so, congratulations!
- We recommend upgrading to the latest Safari, Google Chrome, or Firefox.
- GitHub is home to over 40 million developers working together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.
- Use Git or checkout with SVN using the web URL.
- Want to be notified of new releases in tbsschroeder/using-clojure-for-web-apps?
- If nothing happens, download GitHub Desktop and try again.
- If nothing happens, download Xcode and try again.
- If nothing happens, download the GitHub extension for Visual Studio and try again.
8 Best and Most Popular React Libraries in 2019
- Because the React component model gives you more control over the form and function of each component, React-Bootstrap is built with accessibility in mind.
- Onsen UI is a great component library if you're looking to build cross-platform mobile web apps.

Building a Weather App With Masonite Framework - Basics Concepts
- This will install all the required dependencies of Masonite, creates a .env file for us, generates a new secret key, and put that secret key in our .env file.
- The MVC architecture or Model, View & Controller is popular because it isolates the application logic from the user interface and supports separation of concerns.
- And now run : craft migrate This will run migrations and create a table for cities.
- We will use OpenWeather API to make requests and get data about the weather in different cities.
- Masonite provides an interactive console to quickly test your app or make some diagnostics.
- craft tinker</> We will use this console to add data in cities table.
- As City is an object, it directly inherits methods of the Model class.
- So the create method helps us add an entry according to the fillable columns.
20 Best CentOS Books for System Administrator

Qt for WebAssembly
- As of Qt 5.13, WebAssembly is a supported target.
- Qt is a cross-platform toolkit for building GUI applications.
- It is the toolkit used in the KDE set of Linux desktop tools, as well as the basis for widely used commercial and FOSS applications such as Photoshop Elements, Mathematica, VLC, and VirtualBox - and many more.
- This release means you can distribute Qt apps as if they were web applications, and users execute them install-free entirely within in a web browser (or other WASM environment), at near-native performance - almost as if it had been installed locally.
- Has anyone tried this out yet?
- Will any of you be eschewing React Native or Flutter for this, or porting a desktop application?
Create a website with daily deals from Twitter using Logic Apps and Blob Storage
- New challenges will be published every day from Microsoft Cloud Advocates throughout the month of December.

- Befana is relying on you to finish shopping for the remaining gifts.
- Befana is really particular about getting a good deal on her shopping and expects you to be the same.
- In today's challenge, you'll create a tool that finds deals of the day from Twitter and adds them to a static web page.
- Want to submit your solution to this challenge?
- Build a solution locally and then submit an issue.
Flutter: UI platform designed for ambient computing
- The Dart-powered Flutter engine supports fast development with stateful hot reload, and fast performance in production with native compilation, whether it is running on mobile, desktop, web, or embedded devices.
- For the first time, you can use the release mode to build a fully-optimized macOS application using Flutter, and we’ve been working to expand the Material design system in Flutter to support apps that are designed for desktop-class form factors.
- It’s now possible to build and consume web plug-ins, enabling Flutter apps to take advantage of a growing ecosystem of Dart components for everything from Firebase to the latest web APIs. Since we announced our early adopter program a couple of months ago, we’ve been working with customers like Journey to test web-based experiences with Flutter, and now we’re ready for a broader set of developers to start building web content with Flutter.
