It’s been a while since our last digest. But since that time we managed to complete several interesting projects, release Ruby guide and move our team of Syndicode Dnipro to the new office in the city center. The one thing remains changeless is our love for tech news and discoveries in software development. Are you with us? Read our new Syndicode Digest #71 – Digital Slytherin!
Previously we described the difference between Elixir and Ruby and the main features. One of the features of Elixir is the ability to work with umbrella projects. With umbrella projects, Elixir allows you to have more than one application in your system. The really nice thing about this is that there is almost no difference between an application inside an umbrella and the same application if it were built as a single project. So, let’s have a look at the benefits of umbrella projects.
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!
Earlier you could face some problems trying to find an IDE where you can run and debug your Elixir project. But today we found a tool using which Visual Studio Code is now able to run and debug Elixir projects! It is called ‘Mix’.
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!
As we became fans of functional programming we’d like to share with you any piece of interesting information related to this field. Elixir and Phoenix are absolutely fantastic for building extremely high performance, low maintenance systems, and GraphQL’s ability to fetch huge sets of data in varied ways makes Elixir a particularly great symbiotic fit. Today we will show you an ‘Introduction to GraphQL with Elixir and Phoenix’ created by Brandon Richey.
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.
Last week we showed you Elixir from a Rubyist’s Perspective. Today we’re going back to a technical path and will share with you a new tool we recently found. If you use Elixir you might wonder about how to handle distributed transactions. To run them you can use Sagas pattern. And Sage is a Sagas pattern implementation in Elixir!
This is the scope of the latest weekly most popular JS repositories. Flip-flops season is the official time to forget about your shoes and feel the summer with your feet! This new scope of open source projects will make your work efficient, fast and fun! In the new Syndicode JS digest, you’ll find JS algorithms and data structures, a runtime that supports TS, React components, math library, UI elements, a wrapper for working with arrays and objects and many more neat projects… Explore and enjoy!
History repeats itself. And we sometimes come back to the already forgotten basics that might seem actual as never before. Moreover, things we had at the start might be even more reliable than their promising modifications. However, the world is moving forward and we happy about nowadays inventions. But what will happen if one day Earth’s magnetic field will stop working? If it happens our ‘Syndicode Digest #60 – Atavism adopter’ will no longer be available for you to read. So enjoy it now!
