How Fundbox migrates from Angular to Vue while still being able to develop roadmap features on time

This is Part 3 of the series: “State of Front-End at Fundbox”. Part 1 covers the existing infrastructure at Fundbox and our motivations for redesigning it.

We selected Vue as the framework to build our existing and future applications. That is despite the fact that React could be considered the natural selection, as it’s the most popular of the three. …


We have a dream: To become home of learning and growing for Frontend developers in the Frontend community in Israel and the global industry, as one.

We’ve established You Gotta Love Frontend in 2015. A global english-speaking conference for frontend loving people. I was one of its early founding team members. Since then, the team grew larger and wider with super talented people who drive the conference to whole new areas, geographically and professionally.

In the past I’ve written about the effort it takes to create such a big conference. This time, I want to take you behind the scenes of raising the bar even higher and creating a quality, curated conference. …

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself

So… I always wanted to be a developer. My dad bought a computer when I was 11, and I’ve been coding for… shit… 30 years now! Professionally I started in the European Space Agency in 2001 doing C++ believe it or not. Then moved into finance at Morgan Stanley then JP Morgan. But wasn’t for me, I left in…

Redesigning a front-end infrastructure requires much thinking, discussing, deciding, planning, managing and implementing. One of the first decisions we had to take was to choose a front-end framework to redesign our products on top.

We’ve researched for a…

Overview

At Fundbox, we have delightfully used AngularJS for building our flagship invoice financing product, like the majority of the industry back in the day (AngularJS took over some strong veterans like Backbone, KnockoutJS and, umm, jQuery). …


You Gotta Love Frontend conference started its way in 2015 and attracted over 600 attendees for two days full of Front-End goodies. In 2016, YGLF happened again, offering an even fancier experience for its participants.

Since its inauguration, YGLF grew to become a community. Being the first large-scale international front-end conference in Israel, the conf attracted developers and speakers from all over the Front-End community, both locally and overseas. The conference marked as a gathering event for fellow devs and it helped in creating the great vibes in and around the talks.

My friend based his opinion with facts and examples. “When you type a message while driving and you need to keep your eyes on the road, you have to feel the physical keys to be able to type without looking at…


Good programmers make better use of their analytical brain. They automatically reflect software challenges into a conditional, procedural set of rules. These rules, when executed correctly, help them define the challenge and act to solve it.

Those programmers often use that method to accomplish many other dilemmas in life; from finding their significant other to deciding what career path they should take. Many dilemmas feel very natural to be solved that way, but some might demand a more creative solution.

The Logical Truth About Coding

Writing code does not require intuition or emotion or a good sense of smell. To write good code, programmers must…
