    1. Building an app with all the modern best practices — code-splitting, offline support, server-rendered views with client-side hydration — is fiendishly complicated. SvelteKit does all the boring stuff for you so that you can get on with the creative part.
    1. Excellent Webworld has been the first choice for app development by several businesses across the United States, especially for companies based in Chicago. Whether a small local business or startup, everyone needs scalable apps to cater to the growing demand. The city stands among the most populous ones in the state of Illinois & the entire U.S.; hence it is evident why Chicago app development focuses more on building scalable apps with an extensive database.
    1. Everyone loves the thing that interacts. SPAs or Single Page Applications are the straightforward concepts of it. When you use Facebook or Twitter, it interacts with you dynamically by bringing new data from the web server. This way, you do not need to reload the entire page to get the new data or content.

    1. Purpose for the Mentor:Develop leadership skills‍Being put in the position of a role model can help mentors become better leaders and instill confidence in their leadership ability. The responsibility of helping guide someone’s career and goals requires the senior employee to teach, to motivate and to offer honest feedback in difficult conversations. All these skills are at the top of the required list for a leader.

      This is something that I've been thinking about in terms of career growth, and how one of the things we expect of engineers as they become more senior - is that they can take on leadership roles, level up other people, etc - but we often don't provide them with the tools or opportunity to work on these skills, or go into what skills are required to go into this tk.

    2. An important point to note is that there's a difference between coaching and mentoring. A coach's job is to improve a particular skill, but a mentor plays a more holistic role in helping a mentee improve

      Mentoring and Coaching are different, and being able to identify the differences between the two is important.

      For managers, sometimes they need to wear a coaches hat, or a mentors hat - but these are roles that a manager can have but not their only job.

    1. Agile as a methodology is designed to be adaptive to multiple conditions and drivers to enhance the speed of delivery, but it is most successful when the organisation adopting it understands its own in-built cadence, i.e. its specific rhythm of project delivery.

    1. The best tool is no tool, the best build step is no build step, the best update is no update. HTML gives us all that, and more.

      Truth!

    1. Here are the economics: The cost of recruiting a midcareer software engineer (who earns $150,000- 200,000 per year) can be $30,000 or more including recruitment fees, advertising, and recruiting technology. This new hire also requires onboarding and has a potential turnover of two to three times higher than an internal recruit. By contrast, the cost to train and reskill an internal employee may be $20,000 or less, saving as much as $116,000 per person over three years.  The net savings: it can cost as much as 6-times more to hire from the outside than to build from within.

    1. GitHub Actions is GitHub’s platform for automation workflows. A workflow is a sequence of jobs that can run either in series or in parallel. A job usually contains more than one step, where each step is a self-contained function. To learn more about GitHub Actions, go through the tutorial on Continuous Integration for Android.

      Brief description on what GitHub Actions is.

    1. Preferences DataStore and Proto DataStore DataStore provides two different implementations: Preferences DataStore and Proto DataStore. Preferences DataStore stores and accesses data using keys. This implementation does not require a predefined schema, and it does not provide type safety. Proto DataStore stores data as instances of a custom data type. This implementation requires you to define a schema using protocol buffers, but it provides type safety.

      Currently, I am using SharedPreference which is still alright to use. However, there is a better option called DataStore. This allows data to be stored asynchronously.

    1. Many companies view L&D as a service provider for employees instead of a strategic partner for growth

      I've talked about this before when brain storming on how to teach companies to become teaching organizations, and partnering more closely than one-off training that is very off the shelf.

    1. In a mobile application development trends surface, we have only one phenomenon in which it dependent mobile app developers and client base business which operated by online process market.
    1. “child-directed” or “caretaker” speech.

      Child-directed speech (CDS) refers to speech from a caregiver directed towards a child, as opposed to overheard speech - for example "Is lil'timmy ready for a nappy wappy?" Speech acquisition in children is an area of particular interest for linguists because it has significant implications for later childhood development and socialization. This article is not directly concerned with language acquisition, but rather the sense of forced infantilization that users of many major applications such as Venmo or Yelp feel is being imposed on them. Still, this is an interesting way to frame the topic of app design and the implications it has for the relationship between users and companies.

    1. Clubhouse has really made a fuss around the digital world. It’s hard to imagine a person who hasn’t heard about this app, celebrities who joined it, or pranksters who already managed to confuse the audience. Taking into account the skyrocketing popularity, “how to make an app like Clubhouse” has become an urgent question in the software development business. 
    1. NFT is a unique digital item to have demonstrable ownership. Usually, it is used for digital art. Ethereum-powered projects like SuperRare are harnessing the power of blockchain to create digital art that has digital scarcity and true ownership, thus creating a whole new market for artists and collectors in the digital space. Built on NEAR, Paras: Digital Art Card is an NFT marketplace that is already available for use. It offers much cheaper NFT mining fees than are possible on Ethereum, allowing artists to create without being limited by high on-chain fees. In this article, we are going to discuss NFTs, the ways of creating, selling, and buying. And will give you a step-by-step guide on how to develop an NFT marketplace from scratch with a detailed estimate.

    1. My favorite part of this entire plan has to be the part where I use Github Issues as a blog. Kind of. For every new feature (or set of features) I want to add to the site—no matter how small, like adding a Favicon, for example—I will open a new issue and create a corresponding branch where the work on that feature will happen. I will basically produce a(n) infrequent stream of short “blog posts” in the form of Github issues. The live code for each issue/feature will live in the issue’s corresponding branch. As someone who tends to do multiple things at once, this will take a lot of organization and discipline, and that’s the challenging part for me.

      This is a fascinating and very illustrative use of GitHub for web development. I mostly like that she's pointing out her use case.

    2. I am going to rebuild this Web site in public.

    1. How to Build a Medical Startup: A Useful Resource Guide

      "Building a healthcare startup is not a simple task: The risk is higher than for almost any other vertical, the costs of building and launching a healthcare product are huge, and, on top of that, the regulatory clearance might take a long time.

      While the above sounds terrifying, there are plenty of cases highlighting that it's fully possible! Thie guide was created speacially for those who thinks about healthcare app development"

    1. Why separate out red tests from green tests? Because my green tests serve a fundamentally different purpose. They are there to act as a living specification, validating that the behaviors work as expected. Regardless of whether they are implemented in a unit testing framework or an acceptance testing framework, they are in essence acceptance tests because they’re based upon validating behaviors or acceptance criteria rather than implementation details.
    2. Conversely, red tests are tests I write after the code is written to lock down some implementation.
    3. Have you ever played the game 20 questions? Most of us have played that game at one point in our lives. One person thinks of something that could be an animal, vegetable, or mineral and then they answer yes/no questions that are asked of them. The point of the game is to ask as few questions as possible in order to accurately guess what the person is thinking.  This is how I think of the unit tests that I write the specified behavior as I’m doing test-first development. I ask what are the fewest tests that I need to write in order to assert the behavior I want to create.
    4. I am a big advocate of having a complete test base and even erring on the side of caution when it comes to quality engineering and software validation but that is not what we’re talking about here. What we’re talking about here are the tests that we write when we’re doing test-first development and I’m proposing that writing those tests from the perspective of specifying the behaviors that we want to create is a highly valuable way of writing tests because it drives us to think at the right level of abstraction for creating behavioral tests and that allow us the freedom to refactor our code without breaking it.
    5. The number one problem that I see developers have when practicing test-first development that impedes them from refactoring their code is that they over-specify behavior in their tests. This leads developers to write more tests than are needed, which can become a burden when refactoring code.
    1. Building a Custom Healthcare CRM System

      We are lucky to witness a transformation of healthcare approach – “patients go after hospitals” concept has been shifting to “healthcare providers follow patients”. This is absolutely normal, as healthcare becomes more and more patient-centered. This post, actually, was written to let those healthcare providers, who are hesitating whether or not to purchase, or order development of, a dedicated CRM solution, that it is not something extremely difficult and that building a healthcare CRM software can substantially benefit both parties – medical institution and its patients

    1. Best mHealth Apps for Patients: Doctor on Demand

      In medicine, innovations are always perceived with caution, because we are dealing with people's lives and health. Therefore, doctors are often skeptical about everything that does not fit into the usual pattern of diagnostics and treatment, and solutions such as medical apps for doctors cannot always be trusted as well. To help you overcome your dilemma, we have analized the market and created this article. The first in our series of mobile healthcare product reviews, focuses on the doctor on demand app development

    1. Want to know how to build a taxi app that will become the next Uber or Carb?

    1. Eventually, you’ve got a realization of the way web development organizational structure works. Led by a project manager and supported by a project architect, it can not exist without frontend, backend, and full-stack programmers, DevOps, and Q/A engineers. Optionally, you may need UI/UX designer, business analyst, and SEO expert. Every team player separately and altogether, they make your wishes real. Now, when you know all members’ duties, it should be easier to address your questions and concerns to the right person.

    1. try { const value = await localforage.getItem('somekey'); // This code runs once the value has been loaded // from the offline store. console.log(value); } catch (err) { // This code runs if there were any errors. console.log(err); }

      This looks like the best approach for me. async/await

    1. Devoted to Trump, and committed to his fictions about the election, Republicans are doing everything they can to keep voters from holding them and their leaders accountable. They will restrict the vote. They will continue to gerrymander themselves into near-permanent majorities. A Republican in Arizona has even proposed a legislative veto over the popular vote in presidential elections

      The author starts the paragraph by explaining the Republicans as people who are "devoted to Trump". This makes it seem as Trump were god and everyone has to follow his orders. It gives both a humorous appeal to the audience and illustrates to them the sly techniques that the Republicans are using to escape from punishment. Furthermore, when the author said that the Republicans were ready to propose a veto against the popular vote, it was very ironic. As senators, they are supposed to give constitutional rights to the citizens, but rather they are taking it away for their own purpose. This further emphasizes the extent at which Republicans do not want to lose power to the Democrats.

    2. naked attempt to change the rules of American politics to benefit one party”

      The previous paragraph emphasizes the benefits of the HR.1 and how it specifically helped restore the voting system. However, in this paragraph, McConell exclaims that it is a vague attempt to benefit one party even though the Act was created to benefit the public. This illustrates to the readers the misuse of power by republican senators, which is one of the author's main points.

    3. — and not to lose the next presidential election the way they lost the last one. To that end, they have introduced bills to restrict the vote, to make the race for the Electoral College — a

      The author uses multiple dashes in this paragraph to show the different ways that the republicans will go to stop the Democrats from gaining power. The dashes emphasizes the extent at which republicans are willing to restrict votes. Without the dashes, it would simply sound as an example of what Republicans are doing, but the dashes creates a pause and further emphasis. Also, from John Lewis, the claim shifted to the extreme techniques that Republicans are using to stop Democratic power from taking over.

    1. Since we're not passing any inputs to ListAccounts, it makes sense to use .run! instead of .run. If it failed, that would mean we probably messed up writing the interaction.
    2. ActiveInteraction plays nicely with Rails. You can use interactions to handle your business logic instead of models or controllers.
    3. Why is all this interaction code better? Two reasons: One, you can reuse the FindAccount interaction in other places, like your API controller or a Resque task. And two, if you want to change how accounts are found, you only have to change one place.

      Pretty weak arguments though...

      1. We could just as easily used a plain object or module to extract this for easy reuse and having it in only one place (avoiding duplication).

    1. How do you know if source maps are working correctly? Try adding a syntax error to one of your assets and use the console to debug. Does it show the correct file and source location? Or does it reference the top level application.js file?
    1. Nicely explains how to make asynchronous calls to API/services. Async/Await

    2. try/catch block to be able to catch the error

      Nice!

      The final result of they try catch block it that the code that follows below is almost exactly like how I usually code synchronously. It's so much easier to read.

    3. Callback Hell

      This is so easy to fall into. I've done it a few times. Always try to avoid this.

    4. Promises

      Never forget this. It's very important.
