NSSpain 2019: A Conference Full of Wine And iOS

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.

Internationalization of a Static Website with GatsbyJS

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.

Is Jenkins still the only choice in 2019? What about Gitlab CI?

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.

Interacting with the Tezos blockchain on iOS: Part 1

Interacting with the Tezos blockchain on an iOS device should be an easy task. With TezosSwift, we at Ackee are working to accomplish that goal. TezosSwift has been built with type-safety in mind and implements most of what you could possibly need for Tezos development on iOS. Parts of this tutorial are also applicable to Keefer Taylor’s TezosKit, a library that TezosSwift is based on.

My automatized task management

As a project manager working for a development agency I need to manage several tasks every day. The environment which I am working in is really dynamic and it is so easy to forget something. I am constantly receiving emails from clients and I am also in a day to day cooperation with developers and other co-workers. Every channel I use for communication generates tasks. So the question is how you can manage all these task without going insane.

React Hooks – new stuff for cool kids

Have you noticed this huge buzz about React Hooks in last few days/weeks? If you are as interested in it as we are and you haven’t hesitated and have watched the Dan Abramovstalk (the first one ever on React Conf), you won’t find anything new in the following article. On the other hand, if you’ve never heard about it or you haven’t got a chance to explore it more, this article may speak to you.
