  • Bring Streaming to Apache Cassandra with Apache Pulsar
    5 projects | | 23 Jun 2022
    Join our beginner-friendly Pulsar workshop on YouTube and learn how to connect Pulsar with Cassandra for streaming! In this post, we’ll set the scene with an introduction to Pulsar and guide you through four hands-on exercises where you’ll use these free, cloud-native technologies: Katacoda, Kesque, GitPod, and DataStax Astra DB. Each exercise will also be linked to the step-by-step instructions on the DataStax Developers GitHub wiki.

  • Outlook of Javascript Full-Stack Development for 2023
    6 projects | | 29 Dec 2022
    People have been using tools like jsfiddle for quick experiments for years, but it's been limited to playing with client-side stuff. However, full-fledged web IDEs were maturing fast in 2022. For example, Codesandbox now provides good support for full-stack frameworks like Next and Nuxt by spinning up remote containers to run the server-side workload and emulate a "local" experience for you. Gitpod adopts a similar technology but looks more ambitious in reaching deeper into development life cycles. The most exciting among all is StackBlitz. It took the courageous step to implement a full NodeJS implementation with Web Assembly (called WebContainer). With that, your backend code can run right inside your browser. No need to spin up remote containers and no need to transmit data back and forth across the network. It's a truly local environment. This approach sounds like the only practical way of solving the problem and turning Web IDEs into mainstream usage.
  • Any ideas to make local development easier for 15-20 sites?
    3 projects | | 20 Dec 2022
    I personally use DDev and Docksal due to work requirements. Personally I like Lando. With either of these, you can set your virtual environment to the specifics of that site. Makes life very easy. Another option that I have used is which isn't even local. It works pretty well and can connect. I have also been meaning to try github's workspace, but that may just be for Javascript applications (need to read up more)

    When you do need to show, or run, code in your session, make sure you can run it in the cloud instead of your own machine! I have all my source code on GitHub, and I'm using GitHub Codespaces so I can run a demo completely in the cloud if necessary. There are many similar solutions out there such as Gitpod, JetBrains Space, CodeSandbox. The downside of this solution is that it does require a good internet connection.

    First, I had to research about Gitpod, as I do not have much experience about it and in order to test it I need to figure out what is expected. After some googling and looking through its documentation, I figured out that it allows to setup development environments to work on the projects online which is very helpful to get contribution going.
