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.

Happy Programmer's Day! Syndicode news

Happy Programmer’s Day!

Today is a special day! For all of us. Well, for those who code. Programmers’ Day is celebrated on the 256th day of the year because this is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an eight-bit byte, and the highest power of two which is less than 365. To make it clear, hexadecimal 100th, or the 2^8. Complicated? As everything in the programmer’s world! Happy Programmer’s Day!

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. Syndicode news

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.
