There’s no lack of programming languages, that’s for sure. The last two decades have seen a surge of sophisticated new-generation PLs that have rocked quite a few boats and have set the tone for an update of 90ies microcomputer programming. Purely functional programming has moved out of the niche and the academic world and become mainstream and joined declarative and OOP methods to open up a wider brave new world of software development. Vala is one of the lesser know languages, but it is none-the-less mature in the niche that it serves very well. So well, that I think you should look into it and want to tell you about it.The Vala Programming Language weiterlesen
One does not have to suck up to Google & Co. or try to apply some magic SEO-Snakeoil in order to be diligent about professional web performance and search-engine friendlyness. Google doesn’t like people trying to trick them into higher pageranking and they are fast at retaliation and downmodding ranks a few thousand points when it comes to that.Professional Web Analytics weiterlesen
Hier sind ein paar Schlüsselindikatoren, die nach meiner Erfahrung zur Problemen in Softwareprojekten führen. Die meisten davon haben nichts mit dem technischen Entwicklungsprozess zu tun.Probleme in Softwareprojekten weiterlesen
Here is a selection of blogs and magazines on the web, IT and digital media industry in general. Some are not directly tech related but are very educational and enjoyable none-the-less. This is my personal selection that I consider worthwhile reading. Enjoy! … Disclaimer: May be filled up with things I forgot further down the road. Oh, and there a few podcasts there as well. This is the web and we’re digital, so no problem, eh?
Don’t want to pay for your collaboration and project management? Want to have controll over your tooling and processes? Once again, quality open source tools come to the rescue.
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.
Ein sehr guter Vortrag in dem Felix von Leitner – besser bekannt als “Fefe” – einen guten Überblick über klassische Anitpatterns in und um Softwareentwicklung erläutert. Sehr zu empfehlen.

This talk is a good one and the points made are universal. Highly recommended!
Ein guter Vortrag zum Thema “saubere Softwareentwicklung”:
“Convenience based Projects either die a hero or live long enough to see themselves become the villain.”
It was a very nice and educative meeting. Learned a lot, met many amazing people, made some good contacts. WordPress Community at its best. Some impressions below, see a larger gallery here.
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.

A very enlightening talk on PHP and its history. Rasmus Lerdorf thouroughly explains apparent inconsistencies and also explains why they make perfect sense. Get to know the in and outs of PHP and why it’s brilliant in its own way and why it’s so successful to this very day. This is a must-watch for every web software developer!
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
“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.
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
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

Software developers need the creativity of an artist, the thoroughness and competence of an engineer and the patience with humans of a doctor.
