Bootstrap is still going strong. And have you checked ReactStrap?

The VDOM craze may have you think that Bootstrap is dead. It isn’t. It’s as powerful as ever that the first-class citizenship of Popper.js and an ever evolving jQuery still make it the grandmaster of go-to toolkits for getting good Web-UIs done quickly. It also works very neatly together with virtual DOM libraries such as React. Check out ReactStrap to see how it’s done.

SEO – Eine Begriffsklärung

Seit etwa zwei Jahrzehnten macht ein seltsamer Begriff im Dunstkreis des Themas Web­entwicklung die Runde. Ein Begriff der bei professionellen Webentwicklern mitunter einen schaalen Nachgeschmack und das Gefühl von schmierigen Gebraucht­wagen­händlern und Graumarkt Deals mit gefälschten Modelabels und Parfüm­marken hinterlässt.   SEO – Eine Begriffsklärung weiterlesen

Dart & Flutter

Normaly I’m not a sucker for new programming languages that pop up seemingly out of nowhere. I was notably skeptical about Ruby and the Rails hype and even with languages that the world needs – such as Rust and Go – I do support them, but don’t jump all over them right away. Dart however I’ve been weary about ever since it showed up on my radar a few years ago. Dart & Flutter weiterlesen

The Essence of Agility

Agile, Agile, Certified Scrum, … BULLSHIT!” – that was the initial title of this post. Good for a splash and effect, but a tad negative, I admit.   So I’ve taken the liberty to update the title to a more positive and meaningful one. Same with the permalink. The rest remains the same. – PR, 2.6.2019

The Agile and Scrum Craze has gotten out of hand. Buzzword driven project managment, bad project/method fits and a few other things are taxing my and many other peoples nerves when we bump into someone looking for a “Certified Scrum Master” or tell us that their 8000 employee corporation is now migrating to “Agile” and “Scrum”. Or when some webshop thinks “Agile” is some nown, and a nown that’s nothing other for a fancy words disguising total chaos and labeling it planned. The Essence of Agility weiterlesen

The JAMStack Approach

Tearing ties between frontend and backend apart, going headless or at least ‘headlose’, brazenly moving dynamic logic to the client and decoupling as much as possible into disparate microservices. This probably is the way to go forward in the 2020ies for web content. One degraded WordPress project to many has me seriously looking into this sort of thing now. The JAMStack Approach weiterlesen

Als erfahrener Websoftware­­entwickler werde ich immer wieder mit mitunter seltsamen Anforderungen und Anfragen konfrontiert. Oft ergibt sich hier bei einem Sondierungs­gespräch die Frage, was ich denn mit “Professioneller Webentwicklung” meine. Hier dazu eine Erklärung: Professionelle Webentwicklung und Frickelbuden weiterlesen
