WordPress hat gewonnen – so viel ist klar. 39,5% der obersten 10 Millionen Websites im Internet werden jetzt von WordPress bereitgestellt. Das ist ein 4% Zuwachs in nur einem Jahr – der größte Zuwachs seit Begin des Projekts. Einen nicht geringen Anteil daran hatte auch das in der Pandemie gewachsene Interesse von einzelnen, auch eine eigene Stimme im Web zu haben und auch selber im Web zu verkaufen. WooCommerce, das eCommerce System für WordPress, hat ebenfalls soliden Zuwachs erfahren.WordPress 2021 weiterlesen
PHP 8 has been released. It’s really good. And ready for production. See an overview of the new features here.
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

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.
It doesn’t always have to be ReactJS or virtual DOM. For most tasks and functions, jQuery still is perfectly fine, especially if it’s a current version of the 3.x branch and allready integrated and loaded into your environment.
