But one of the most interesting takeaways for me was the emergence of a front-end framework called Svelte.
In the overall rankings for the top front-end frameworks (based on awareness, interest, and satisfaction), Svelte appeared at number two. Just behind React and in front of well-established frameworks like Vue.js, …
Have you ever thought about creating a newsletter for all the great content you write but don’t have the time to put one together each week? Boy, do I have a surprise for you!
I will show you how you can send an automated email every week containing your most recent blog posts from Medium. As long as you are creating new content, your email will always be different!
If you are not a Medium writer, no worries, about 99% of this article will still apply to you; you will just pull your content from a different source.
The point of this tutorial is to understand how we can use a combination of AWS Lambda, Amazon Simple Email Service, and Amazon EventBridge to send out emails on a schedule, with dynamically generated content. Here is an architecture diagram to give you a…
A couple of months ago, I wrote an article demonstrating how to create a form in React. As I feel this exercise is an essential building block in learning a new front-end framework, I’ve done the same in Vue.js.
Important concepts in this exercise include creating a form, using inputs, event handling on submit, creating a table, custom methods, computed properties, sorting a list, vue-directives, etc. The list goes on and on!
Who would have thought you could learn so much from such a simple application?
Take the input from a user using a form and output the data as a leaderboard. …
Launch a simple Vue application after setting up a local development environment.
These are the tools you will install throughout the duration of this tutorial:
The public cloud is taking over whether you like it or not. And what’s not to like about it?
Cloud computing has made it incredibly easy to manage all of our computer system resources. It has provided a layer of abstraction that seemed impossible before 2006.
No longer do we have to manage our underlying infrastructure physically. These developments mean we no longer have to:
When I first started my AWS journey just a few months ago, all I knew was that I wanted to get certified.
I knew that everything in Information Technology revolves around the cloud. So why wouldn’t I want to become an expert in it?
I knew that, on average, AWS certified workers make north of $130,000, according to Global Knowledge.
But what I did not know was which certification I should be going after. Solutions Architect or Developer?
From conducting research on the internet, I discovered that mean salaries are higher for Solutions Architect (only very slightly). …
So you’ve decided to take the AWS Solutions Architect exam. A fantastic choice! You’re ready to level up in your career and dive deeper into the fascinating world of AWS.
The only problem is you have no idea where to start because you’ve never prepared for a certification like this and/or have no experience with AWS.
Do not worry. I was in the same boat not too long ago.
Before starting preparation for this exam, I had very little exposure to AWS. The most I had done was host a static site using an S3 bucket.
Also, I had never worn the hat of a Solutions Architect — at least in a professional setting. …
I recently completed reading The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim. What a fantastic read. I had no idea a book about the least exciting part of my job could be so riveting. I gained an entirely new perspective on my career as a software engineer and IT in general.
This book is essential to everyone in Information Technology regardless of your role. To create value at any level in the organizational hierarchy, it’s important to understand why upper management is doing the things they are doing.
This book gives you a holistic understanding of IT operations. It puts you in the mind of somebody responsible for making the decisions that will directly impact your day to day life no matter who you are. …
After hours and hours of searching for a way to download file attachments from an API POST request, I finally put together bits and pieces of different Stack Overflow and blog posts to get it working.
This should not be that hard. And honestly, it wasn’t.
I used this inside of my Spring project, but the logic will still be the same across other types of Java projects.
I will also show you how to test the endpoint using Postman.
The objective is to download a file attachment sent from an API POST request.
If you would like to follow along, I suggest using the following…
Launch a simple Spring Boot application after setting up a local development environment.
We are going to keep this as short and simple as possible. You will be able to get a Spring server up and running in your VS Code environment in less than five minutes.
These are the tools we will be installing:
Let’s get started!
Download the stable build from Visual Studio Code.
This is a very easy download. Microsoft has done a good job of simplifying the installation process for this application.
This process has been automated like you wouldn’t believe. …
