Testing React Apps 😨

A comprehensive and practical guide to testing your React apps!

The overhead of Docker πŸ“¦

A small article that gives you a glimpse of the overhead of running your development setup through Docker on macOS.

Python on a plane? 🐍

I’m afraid to say this: Python like this looks a bit like Nodejs πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

On commit messages πŸ’Œ

We could all learn from this and write better commit messages.

Fixed something isn’t good enough??

RasPi IDEs πŸ› 

The Raspberry Pi is a great development platform – and these are the tools you want in that toolbox.

Debugging Go

Delve is smart and good.

Debugging is awesome – no print statements needed.

Branching out

These are some good rules for your git branches.

VS Code Setup

This article has a nice list of stuff to do when configuring VS Code.

Use the bits you like.

Tips for VS Code

These are GOLD!

Package Manager for Windows 🎁

This is some good news.

A modern OS should have an official package manager.

Windows has several package managers – I tend to use HomeBrew through WSL. This might be better though.

The future is a photo πŸ“Έ

I have seen some demos in UR5 and they look absolutely amazing!

Notifications on GitHub πŸ™

Notifications on GitHub has been given a big brush up! I like it! And I like the inbox-like approuch to my GitHub-work.

Building Firefox 🦊

This article is a great insight into how Firefox is built and developed.

Building a browser is no small project – especially when you want to be in the front line of performance and standard compliance.

Google vs. Sun, and Java 😑

This case has been going on for long enough already – can we all just move along and try to make relevant products for users??

Please….

20 VS Code must haves πŸ™ˆ

I am really a sucker for articles/lists as this one.

I can’t seem to remember back when development was done either in a large expensive IDE that couldn’t be changed OR in a simple text editor that couldn’t be changed OR on Unix/Linux where you could just go RTFM!

Streaming go test -v 🌊

Output of go test -v is now streamed real time – this is really a huge step up for Go developers.

Notepad Hype! 🀩

The new Notepad app for Windows 10 is here!

Word wrapping and search/replace is supported!!! This is exciting times indeed!

All jokes aside – Microsoft seems to be moving many of these core apps into the store which might serve a dual purpose: Move them to alternate update cycles and have them deliver their own promises to users AND making everyone aware that Windows 10 actually have an app store πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

Markdown for documentation πŸ“„

I agree that Markdowns 1-to-1 relationship with HTML is problematic at best.

Markdown is really good at what it does – it is somewhat easy to learn and it is widespread already.

Introducing new alternatives at this point – even though they might be better – might prove a pointless effort.

You now have n! problems πŸ”₯

Microservices are talked about as it’s the best thing to happen in computing ever.

Most time I can’t stop thinking that my stack leaves me with a problem but if I split it into n microservices I’ll have n! problems… And my core product ain’t one…

LiveShare you dev πŸ‘

LiveShare is one of the most undervalued features of VS Code!

WSL2 is on it’s way! πŸŽ‰

Windows update 2004 can’t come fast enough!

WSL2 is looking to be on point for developers and enthusiasts alike!

Nifty tool for Go πŸ“ˆ

Diago is a nifty little tool for analyzing CPU and/or memory performance/usage in programs written in Go.

It is written in Go itself – which is also very impressive (UI binding to a library written mostly in C++ though).

Passwords on GitHub 😏

It is a good move – access tokes are clearly the way forward!

GitHub App ❀️

The official GitHub app was just released!

I have only given the app a small test run 😝 around the block and merged a few pull requests πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ It is really good! πŸŽ‰

The mobile version of the GitHub web interface is generally good. This is even better!
