Meet Deno, the new Node

Deno is a new implementation of a runtime environment by the original creator of Node. v1 came about roughly a year ago and it’s basically a redo of Node with all the insights gained and the newest proven technologies at its core. Deno is implemented in Rust and sports TypeScript as a native and first class citizen. By default Deno has no local access, it has to be given explicitly which is the right way to secure things. It has integrated tooling such as a bundler and a formatter and it loads external components via URI, so it’s basically SOA-ready by nature.

WordPress hat gewonnen – so viel ist klar. 39,5% der obersten 10 Millionen Websites im Internet werden jetzt von WordPress bereitgestellt.

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.

The Vala Programming Language

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.

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.
