But it is also for sure, that some other of them from this list is a surprise for you. The worst thing about software development that you can’t use all of the cool tools you know.

While we were preparing this issue we encountered a simple but vital question asked on dev.to. What are the latest trends in frontend development nowadays? Making a scope of the most popular open source projects will help us better understand what is going on in the web development world. This time we’ll do a brief analysis of the monthly most popular JS repositories. Chilling time is the best part of the summer, so to get more time for relaxation – read about, explore and use these great tools. They’ll save your time! For example, a mechanism for programmatically making web requests in the browser, diagrams and flowcharts generator, UI kit, React boilerplate, JS storage to improve the offline experience, text-based browser and many more of interesting and useful repositories!
Look what we’ve found! This is the results of 2018 Ruby on Rails Developer Community Survey! Over 2,000 members of the Rails community kindly contributed their thoughts on tools, frameworks, and workflows in their day to day development lives. Even if you could say that the number of respondents is not representative, still, from these responses we hope to get an understanding of where the Rails community is as a whole in 2018. Enjoy!
Have you ever admired some of the technology evangelists, early adopters or some extremely cool programmers? The truth is that you will never be like them! But you have a great chance to become your new smart and awesome version if you will work on your skills. Add some inspiration, some motivation and you will no longer want to become somebody else. You can follow the great examples but a whale is a whale, and a seahorse is a seahorse. Btw, the seahorse is also incredibly beautiful and charming.

It only seems that our digest’s names are random. Every name means something. Like the “Ruby basket”. Syndicode’s language of choice is Ruby, but as the most languages, it has its drawbacks. Anyway, you have to understand that the quality of your code depends not on the language itself but on your skills and the way you implement the code. So be smart, make all the code you do perfect regardless the language you use. And read our new Syndicode Digest #25 – Ruby basket!
