Events/ Training

One of the most common suggestions for people looking to learn to code and get more involved in the Node.js and JavaScript communities I’ve heard is “go network in person.” When I was trying to get started, I heard this a ton but didn’t have an opportunity to do so since I live in a […]


#PerfMatters Conference is the web performance conference in Redwood City, California with talks by internationally renowned performance developers. Our focus is on front-end web performance.


We build six fundamental programming tools from scratch in about thirty minutes each. Each focuses on understanding the core behavior of the tool, rather than the esoteric details and legacy concerns of real-world implementations.

Flutter is a mobile cross-development platform still in its beta. Flutter most importantly gives us the native feel with a better performance as compared to its competitors. In this article, we will learn why Flutter is a good option for development and we will also create a simple app with it. You can find the […]


Flutter is Google’s mobile UI framework for crafting high-quality native interfaces on iOS and Android in record time. Flutter works with existing code, is used by developers and organizations around the world, and is free and open source.


NativeScript doesn’t require a JavaScript framework, but if you’re a Vue.js developer, the NativeScript community has you covered. Vue.js is a lightweight framework for building engaging user interfaces. NativeScript powers cross-platform (truly native) mobile apps, using the web skills you already know. Combined they are are a fantastic pair for developing immersive mobile app experiences.


In past, we deeply evaluated React native databases and React native app performance issues. What we didn’t talk about were limitations. Understanding these limitations is extremely important before you start developing your apps. In this article, we are listing some of the most common limitations in React Native. We hope to help you avoid some […]


After the surprise yesterday from a tweet from Ricky Mondello and then the Safari 11.1 beta Release Notes stating that Web App Manifest and Service Workers are implemented which means multi-platform PWAs are now possible, it’s now time to come back to the real world and see what’s what we have.


This list includes open-source and free cross-platform mobile app development tools that any developer can use immediately.



Blazing fast CSS for your design systems and app components


Are you about to begin an important Vue project? To ensure you start with a solid foundation, you might use a template (aka boilerplate, skeleton, starter, or scaffold) rather than starting from npm init or vue init.


A JavaScript calendar that everything you need.


RxJS v6 has arrived! While this is a major version change (from 5.x to 6.x), we’ve put in a lot of work to keep the hard breaking changes to a minimum. In most cases, this allows application and library developers to update incrementally and use RxJS v6 without any modifications to their code.


Version 10 is the newest release of Node.js, and it is packed with features. Going under the codename “Dubnium”, Node 10 was released April 24, 2018 and will enter Long Term Support (LTS) in October 2018. JavaScript developers have been excitedly awaiting today, so let’s take a look at the most notable features of this […]


A comprehensive and curated list of design systems, style guides and pattern libraries that you can use for inspiration.




A security audit is an assessment of package dependencies for security vulnerabilities. Security audits help you protect your package’s users by enabling you to find and fix known vulnerabilities in dependencies that could cause data loss, service outages, unauthorized access to sensitive information, or other issues.


Create a personalized and optimized webpack.config.js!


When the Firefox Add-ons team ported addons.mozilla.org to a single page app backed by an API, we chose React and Redux for powerful state management, delightful developer tools, and testability. Achieving the testability part isn’t completely obvious since there are competing tools and techniques.


In this post, I am summarizing some of the concepts that I have found essential to learn and apply when building a large scale, highly available and distributed system: the payments system that powers Uber.


Vue-powered Static Site Generator


WebAssembly adoption has really picked up in the first quarter of 2018. Many languages are now targeting the binary format that is the first native alternative to JavaScript since the inception of the web. The Go programming language is now joining the wasm extravaganza.



FoundationDB is a distributed datastore, designed from the ground up to be deployed on clusters of commodity hardware. These clusters scale well as you add machines, automatically heal from hardware failures, and have a simple API. The key-value store supports fully global, cross-row ACID transactions. That’s the highest level of data consistency possible. What does […]


Relational databases held the lead for quite a time. Choices were quite obvious, MySQL, Oracle or MS SQL to mention a few.


Today we’re excited to launch native support for Apache Cassandra API in Azure Cosmos DB


Hands up if you grew up with structured databases. Did you learn some flavour of SQL? Maybe MS Access in school and then MySQL when you started dabbling in code.


Today we’re announcing the release of MongoDB 3.6, the latest milestone in our efforts to give developers the most productive general-purpose data management systems for modern applications.


Whenever you, as a developer, are given a task based on existing code, you have to face many challenges. One such challenge—more often than not the most demanding one—involves understanding the data model of an application.


Web Server/ Cloud

Both Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services offer a lot of data services. So many services that it can be hard to comprehend how the compare without a scorecard. So, that’s what I did here, I put together a quick image to help you make sense of all the offerings current available (as of March, […]


The TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol) was created in the 1970s by DARPA. The model came from ARPANET and is also known as the “Internet Model”. It has four abstraction layer which describe a general set of design guidelines and implementations of specific protocols for network communication. We will be discussing all these […]


I recently found an interest in Kubernetes and learned about it at night, while working at something not web-related at day. As part of my learning journey I wanted to quickly see and experience how Kubernetes actually works in action. So I decided to write a few services that can be used to trigger and […]


Prior to the cloud revolution, virtual machines had been the dominant form of virtualization technique used for isolating application environments hosted by large on-premise physical machines. The sudden boom of cloud industry (charges you for resources you provision and utilize) caused large companies to search for more efficient ways of running applications on infrastructure they […]


WebdriverIO lets you control a browser or a mobile application with just a few lines of code. Your test code will look simple, concise and easy to read.


With your dependency graph enabled, we’ll now notify you when we detect a vulnerability in one of your dependencies and suggest known fixes from the GitHub community.
