Serverless API with Microsoft Azure

Recently we made a post with Google Cloud and AWS comparison. But we promised to include there Microsoft Azure. While we’re still working on that you might enjoy the example of creating a serverless API using Microsoft Azure. What if you want or need to make your own API? Serverless can help create a nice one for data you’d like to expose for use. Here we’ll be able to create an API in a few button clicks, with minor modifications.

Syndicode Digest #67 – Imperfect aftermath

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!

19 CodePen modern analogs

Editing the article by Vadim Tsvid about Ruby on Rails and DataTables plug-in we again encountered our main article-design-problem – the code. Because when you try to make the code visible in your article in a relevant way, you want to take less effort and not editing every single line of it. Especially if you have up to a hundred code lines in a single tutorial! Vadim created great posts, but we know that the code could be presented better: with the color, highlights and so on. We could have been using CodePen for that, but it doesn’t support Ruby… That is why today we decided to write about 19 CodePen modern analogs! That somehow could help us with presenting our frontend and backend code in the future articles. We know that most of them neither support Ruby by now, but we have to find out as many good CodePen alternatives as we can.

Syndicode Digest #65 – Modest genius

When you’re modest, nobody will know how much you do. But when people claiming too much, they’re not taken seriously as talented ones. Because talent comes with modesty and thoughts that your achievement will be evaluated sooner or later. Better sooner, of course. However, sometimes you have to tell the world who are you. Don’t be too shy to share your articles, codebase, design, repositories, and ideas! If you wouldn’t know people’s opinion you will never move forward and get recognition! Or fail. But daring to fail is also an important part of your unicorn’s path! Let’s dare with new ‘Syndicode Digest #65 – Modest genius’!
