How many of you have tried your luck? We’re not talking about gambling or ruffling. We’re talking about belief in your chance, even if you know that there’s no chance at all. Theoretically, this way of behavior is at low probability among programmers because they can predict what will happen according to different assumptions and calculations. But it is also observed that sometimes programmers have no idea what they are doing at all. And the hope that everything will be ok is the only one thing that helps them to continue. Try to identify your type of behavior while reading our new ‘Syndicode Digest #73 – Rare possibility’!
Today we introduce you our 70th weekly digest! Almost every week Syndicode selects and composes the most important and interesting news from the IT world. Technologies and conferences, hacks and releases, issues and solutions. We deliver them filtered and prioritized. Like the best-selected fruits from the autumn garden… Enjoy our very special ‘Syndicode Digest #70 – Sticky orchard’! p.s. ‘Sticky’ because we hope that some of the advice and technologies will stay with you and help you in your future projects!
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…
Nobody is perfect. And you too. And your code, project, commit etc. The only way to find out the how you rate what you did is the level how happy you are with it. The same thing happening with bad evaluations. Who are they, those experts who can tell you that your contribution (you have spent several months to complete) is a disaster? All the opinions are subjective. So relax and enjoy your lovely long-created ‘disaster’. And make it better next time, please. p.s. Our ‘ Syndicode Digest #67 – Imperfect aftermath’ is not perfect too! But so good!

You can never expect for inspiration to come when you need it. Oh, no, it doesn’t work like this. The inspiration has got the most stupid habit to come when you’re sleeping, or eating, or chatting and then you tend to forget about the idea very fast. Because you were busy with some other urgent tasks or your head was filled with other thoughts, not very related to the inspiration motive. However, never rely on inspiration! It is a pretty vital but bad companion. That is why we worked on our ‘Syndicode Digest #64 – Whenever inspiration’ regardless of the afflatus but relying on the most interesting materials we collected during this week!
Things get smarter every day! How can data help in improving the user-perceived page load performance by using predictive analytics? Investigations and monitoring showed that a data-driven approach for predictive pre-fetching of web pages can optimize loading performance on the web and make it possible for the needed page to be already in the user’s cache. Magic? Nope, just a common work of Minko Gechev and Addy Osmani! Today we’d like you to meet Guess.js – libraries and tools for enabling data-driven user-experience on the web!
Some type of knowledge does go outdated. But some data and recipes, ways and tools just going to be improved and reused again and again. How to know whether your knowledge is still valid in new conditions and times? How do you understand when you can apply some old tricks for the new issues? A human brain is a real magic box without capacity limits. And sometimes there’s no need to learn something new. All you have to do is to revise what you already have. Let’s do some knowledge revision with our new Syndicode Digest #63 – Unhide revision.
