NSSpain is one of the most well-known iOS conferences in Europe – that had been proven by the fact the tickets had been sold out before even one single speaker was announced. This was my first time at any iOS conference, so I was extremely excited about this whole trip. The talks were divided into two days, 19th and 20th September, so it was a great getaway before the summer ends.
Do you use React? Do you need an internationalized static website? We have a brand new GatsbyJS starter supporting you out-of-box! Check out our Github.
In Ackee, we use React as the main front-end technology. Most of the time we create SPAs, but sometimes we need to create a static website with just a few pages, and an internationalization is compulsory every time. There is a lot of static site builders but if you want something easy to use with React, you should go with GatsbyJS and its huge starter ecosystem.
Last few years, the WWDC keynote was mostly about introducing new features into Apple operating systems that were focusing mainly on the end user. It looked like Apple forgot that the letter D in WWDC means Developer. Everything was all about introducing new UI, new gestures or introducing new hardware. We were again and again wondering if something was changing and Apple would come up with some real game changer even for developers and again and again we were a bit disappointed that it never happened. But this year it’s a completely different story. (more…)
Try to Google a bit and find some blog posts about adoption of microservices, Docker, Kubernetes and other “new” stuff in the traditional environments. Almost every post is like “yeah, microservices are kinda cool, but monitoring and overall observability is very challenging.”
Well, that’s not true anymore. And today I’m gonna show you one important pillar of this shift from “challenging” to “absolutely possible.” Please make some noise for the technology which can’t be missing in your microservice stack – distributed tracing.
As we’ve shared in our previous DevOps posts, we mainly use Jenkins for our common CI and CD tasks. Nowadays, Jenkins is still industry standard, there are heaps of resources tutorials and Stackoverflow threads about (almost) every conceivable issue. I’ve written “almost” back there, I know. Well, sometimes you have to dive in to Java code and figure out what the hell that XYZ plugin actually does. And things can get messy. But enough of complaints.
The data dependencies management is an important topic for me. Over the years, while working with React, Redux and other libraries from this ecosystem, we developed a few solutions for this problem. Here is our story.
Redesigns launch countless waves of hate. That’s an axiom. Every logo change of any more or less known company is welcomed by tons of bitter posts and comments on every social network of the world. Insults on designers, supposedly “witty” memes, attempts to improve the design, listings of human organs that can be seen in new graphics, discoveries of old-time logos from which the new one was obviously copied – just classic. The quality of the redesign doesn’t matter. Twitter will explode even when Spotify changes the shade of green.
