Fullstack DevOps is one of those titles that many recruiters and job post listings throw around with large salary tags attached to them. Then you click into one and find yourself swimming in a sea of acronyms. You’re not quite sure if it’s a really bad joke, or that the recruiter is just trying to cover every programming language and cloud service provider in existence.
This leads to the question: what exactly do you need to become a fully functional fullstack DevOps developer?
Everyone knows what cloud computing is but not at the same time. It’s one of those mysterious…
Throughout my career as a developer, I’ve exhibited varying degrees of hubris — the good bulk of it at the beginning of my journey. I was the cocky junior dev, filled with over-confidence, and somewhat overly zealous advocation of things I thought I understood.
It happens to all of us — especially in our early days when we think we know it all. In reality, it is just the Dunning Krueger effect doing its glorious cycle on our egos and readjusting us towards reality. This is because when we start out as developers, we’re like children — full of fantasies…
APIs are the bread and butter of building any app. It is the thing that makes data persistence possible. It is the data, the structure, and the thing that gives an app meaning and purpose for existing.
For many developers, especially newbies and those on the hunt for a new job, personal portfolio projects can make or break your resume from the sea of applicants.
The quickest way to show off your skills is to bootstrap together an app. Here are 10 free APIs that you can use to rapidly prototype, MVP style, some apps for your coding portfolio.
When it comes to dev work, there seems to be a curious trend in the workplace. The cohort of developers seems to be full of young people — straight out of college, boot camps, and self-taught courses kind of young.
Sure, we have the outliers here and there.
But where are all the elderly developers? Where did they all go? It’s not like they just disappeared into another realm…or did they?
How did we arrive at these questions? Why does it matter? and do dev careers really start to die when you turn 35?
According to the latest StackOverflow Developer’s…
When you’re new to the game, it’s easy to convince yourself that if you build it, they will come. As developers, we’re in the business of building things. Marketing is generally not our forte.
Back in my early days, I spent a ton of time on a project that flopped miserably because of this mindset. Over time, I’ve come to accept that I’m just another digital speck in the wide web of millions, if not billions, of comments, memes, posts, and whatever else exists on the Internet.
However, 3 years on, I’m a brighter speck than what I used to…
As I start my 8-week #buildinpublic challenge, I find myself back on the React gravy train. React as a library has exploded and taken over the Internet, especially in the frontend space. It’s a requirement on every frontend job advert I’ve seen and supported by every integration I’ve encountered.
But is React really that great?
I started out in Angular and have recently and properly moved into React development over the past few months. Here’s what I’ve discovered so far.
React is weird — especially if you’re used to working with frameworks and fullstack setups. …
Learning React isn’t hard — but sometimes you still need that reference sheet training wheel to help you along until you get the hang of balancing yourself on the code.
Here is a quick summary/notes on React components and classes. In short — basically, everything you sort of need to know/be aware of to get started with React classes.
** the information found here can also be found on React’s documentation. This post is more a summary of the documentation, with a few additional notes. Also, hope you like my attempts at making a summary/sharable infographic.
For a non-designer, thinking in visual components can be a strange process — especially if you’re new to React, or are just moving into frontend development. Our main modes of operations tend to sit at the logical layer, where business rules materialize and connections are made. For non-native frontend developers, there is often a disconnect between the visual world and code.
It turns out that the spread
Docker. It’s a little blue whale with a container sitting on its back. We hear about it from various places but it’s usually just left to the DevOps guy to deal with.
Or perhaps you’ve tried to pick it up out of curiosity. So you start with Google and the amount of information returned just feels overwhelming. In this piece, we’re going to go over what Docker is, how it works, and the differences between a Docker container and a virtual machine.
Docker is a development platform and a virtualization technology that makes it easy for us to develop and…
