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.
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.
Two years ago, my colleagues participated in a weekend hackathon and came up with an idea to create a Rock-Paper-Scissors game for Facebook messenger. The real-world RPS game is simple and pretty much everyone knows how to play it. The mobile app didn’t aim to add cool new ways to play the game and tried to be as simple as possible.
All our apps are developed in several different environments. Let’s have a look at what we call an environment, what the motivation to have different environments in one app is and what type of inconveniences it could bring. We’ll also unscover a part of our technological stack which helps us to do it the way we do it. ?
Programmers and supporters of the Ethereum cryptocurrency have gathered in Prague for the 4th DevCon, official Ethereum Foundation conference. It took place in the Congress Center between 30th of October and 2nd of November 2018 and associated meetups took place also at our Danube House within the wider Blockchain Week Prague event. Thanks to the development of Ethereum iOS DevKit we were one of the official grantees, we had two talks during the conference and we were in the center of action during the whole week.
I have been working with React for about four years now. It has been quite a ride and for the whole time the data dependencies management has been an important topic for me. In this article, I would like to show you my journey with the data dependencies management and the result I came up with.
Ethereum smart contracts have a wide variety of use cases, but until now it has been quite difficult to call them from your iOS app. Well, that has changed! Just by using Ethereum iOS Dev Kit and EtherKit, you can get started in no time. At the end of this tutorial you will be able to call any public contract function that is defined in its ABI (Application Binary Interface). (more…)
A few months ago, we decided to make a small revolution in our stack – to change the dependency manager from Cocoapods to Carthage. This decision, however, gave us one big disadvantage: it became necessary to build all the dependencies before development. The amount of time developers spend on building all of the dependencies is very high, therefore it is necessary to reduce it. So let us begin, and see how we can accomplish that.
In January 2018 we hosted a Fake news themed hackathon at our place in Karlín. We organized this nearly 24-hours-long meeting together with Endowment Fund for Independent Journalism and Open Society Fund, so that the programmers could cooperate with data analysts, designers and journalist to enrich their own projects.
