Thanks! You’ve rated this material!

All the week long we couldn’t wait for this chance to share with you all those interesting and important news we’re sharing today! Of course, we could write about each of them separately. But you must agree, that if a piece of news is included in the digest it has more value for the reader. That means it was selected and kept for the special moment. The same thing is happening with good developers – they don’t need instantly share all their knowledge, but to keep, accumulate and just use where it is most appropriate. Read our new Syndicode Digest #69 – Razorblade strokes. And listen too! If you understand what is hidden in the digest’s name… 


  1. Most of you should know about Gatsby, a modern website and app generator, one of the best React libraries on GitHub. This week we’re found out that Gatsby V2.0.0 is here! This release focuses on performance and developer experience. The result of months of hard work by the Gatsby core team and 315 contributors are reducing build times by up to 75%, shrunk JavaScript client runtime by 31%, and upgrading Gatsby’s core dependencies to their latest versions: Webpack 4, Babel 7, React 16.5.
  2. ElixirConf 2018 was a truly great event! And the videos from this event are already available on YouTube! p.s. Recently we covered the presentation of Phoenix.LiveView in our previous digest.
  3. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is an orchestration service offered from Amazon Web Services for deploying infrastructure which orchestrates various AWS services. Earlier you could read our article about how to deploy a Rails app on AWS Elastic Beanstalk, but now we’ve found the new bunch of tips. This time for Node.js. This is the guide to AWS Elastic Beanstalk using Node.js.
  4. Google Chrome Labs released ndb, an improved debugging experience for Node.js. ndb doesn’t depend on a local installed Chromium-based browser (or its version) which belongs to the host machine, because it installs that independently. This makes ndb a browser agnostic debugger, compared to the V8 inspector.
  5. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a serverless day! Apache OpenWhisk, an open source distributed serverless platform, added native support for the Ruby Runtime! From now you can create a serverless action in Ruby with no need in Docker or any bash injection hacks.
  6. What specific elements make a changelog work? What makes a good changelog?
  7. What is the value of web workers in JS? What are the basic principles of its work? Web workers enable developers to benefit from parallel programming in JavaScript. With parallel programming, we can run different computations at the same time.
  8. Great news for most of us! In new Angular Console 6 Beta-2 release we’ve got a lot of bug fixes and UX improvements. But what is important, Angular Console 6.0.0-beta.2 is providing Linux support!
  9. What do you know about Sequent? Well, Sequent is a CQRS and event sourcing framework (ES) written in Ruby. It enables you to capture all changes to an application state as a sequence of events, rather than just storing the current state. And in July it released version Sequent 3.0.
