Music. Food. Vue. VueConf US – March 26–28, 2018 in New Orleans, USA


An annual conference focused on frontend technologies, covering the web stack from Javascript to UX and Web design.




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.


Imagine a web application that you can browse, even with a very poor network connection. An offline web application that will still give access to up-to-date data and keep engaging users.




The goal of this talk would be to provide a good understanding of the following, A crisp understanding of the JavaScript VM and how a single threaded engine can be massively parallel. How event loop and callbacks works, example of blocking and non-blocking codes, ES6 generators for custom Async signaling. How function definitions happen and […]


Let’s architect a React application from the ground up, exploring the domain and its services, store, application services and the view.


Today I am excited to publicly share the 2048 Progressive Web App (PWA)!


The feature set of ECMAScript 2018 was finalized during the latest TC39 meeting (23-25 January 2018). This blog post describes it.


Using documentation to cultivate co-ownership between design and development


This is a book on the functional paradigm in general. We’ll use the world’s most popular functional programming language: JavaScript. Some may feel this is a poor choice as it’s against the grain of the current culture which, at the moment, feels predominately imperative. However, I believe it is the best way to learn FP […]




In this article, I’ll introduce the early implementation of a few tools which based on techniques from the machine learning allow us to perform data-driven chunk clustering and pre-fetching for single-page applications. The purpose is to provide a zero-configuration mechanism which based on data from Google Analytics for the users’ behavior performs the most optimal […]


This article highlights 25 Node JS tutorials written by CodeBurst authors. Whether you’re brand new to Node, or an experienced developer, there’s something here for everyone.


Learn how to make your Bash/Shell script colourful and attractive without installing any plugins and configuration.


When you are building a website, chances are that you are using a css framework like Bootstrap, Materializecss, Foundation, etc… But you will only use a small set of the framework and a lot of unused css styles will be included.


Manually clicking through different browsers as they run your development code, either locally or remotely, is a quick way to validate that code. It allows you to visually inspect that things are as you intended them to be from a layout and functionality point of view. However, it’s not a solution for testing the full […]


As I said before, because I felt bash is an often-used (and under-understood) technology, I ended up writing a book on it while studying it up. It’s really gratifying to know that other people think it’s important too, despite being un-hip.



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.


Database load can be a silent performance killer. I’ve been optimizing the query performance of a web app I run designed to get people involved in open source, but was seeing random spikes of query times to 15 seconds or more. While I had been seeing this behavior for some time, I only recently began […]


Web Server/ Cloud


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.


Next week, we will roll out Kubernetes 1.8 to Google Container Engine for early access customers. In addition, we are advancing significant new functionality in Google Cloud to give Container Engine customers a great experience across Kubernetes releases.
