Our great sponsors
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • GitHub repo CPython

    The Python programming language

    As a FE dev, having Javascript or Python is a must, the most used languages worldwide now.

  • GitHub repo webpack

    A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows for loading parts of the application on demand. Through "loaders", modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.

    Errors during the building phase of an application are not odd, in fact, several times they are expected, knowing about the process under the hood can give some guidance related to the issues and how to fix them; also what if the client complaints about a lot of console errors, the performance of the page is too low, the build takes a lot of time to get deployed, all of these could be part of a lack of knowledge in the process of building and deploying. Required flags, changing the build environment, optimize the build, tree shaking the build, handling alerts on the build size, all of this needs to be covered; learning about Webpack and Rollup could have a big impact in your next deploy.

  • GitHub repo foundation

    GraphQL Foundation Charter and Legal Documents (by graphql)

    The only constant is the change, even more in technology; some years ago, there was something called SOAP, the most used way to interact with http request/responses in xml format; later we had(and still have) Rest has been hanging around for a while, the days of interacting with XMLs are over(for most of the devs out there), plenty of services rely on Rest now; Graphql is the new member of the family, even though it is not a protocal, instead a query language, makes the API interaction cleaner, it is easy to learn and use, and has a lot of support, so better start learning now!
