The Stress of Remote Working – Hacker Noon
In software engineering, remote working makes a lot of sense since, most of the time, you only need a computer and an internet connection to perform your duties. So there are less reasons to force people to sit in a predefined office everyday. Consequently, it has become an important feature of a lot of IT jobs, even in Belgium, while it is definitely not the most forward looking job market. That said, most of the time, the remote working offer only apply to a part of the week (1 or 2 days a wee...

Ten years in, nobody has come up with a use for blockchain
Everyone says the blockchain, the technology underpinning cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, is going to change EVERYTHING. And yet, after years of tireless effort and billions of dollars invested, nobody has actually come up with a use for the blockchain—besides currency speculation and illegal transactions.

Each purported use case — from payments to legal documents, from escrow to voting systems—amounts to a set of contortions to add a distributed, encrypted, anonymous ledger where none was needed. What if there isn’t actually any use for a distributed ledger at all? What if, ten years after it was invented, the reason nobody has adopted a distributed ledger at scale is because nobody wants it?

Javascript and Functional Programming: An Introduction
Note: This is part of the “Javascript and Functional Programming” series on learning functional programming techniques in JavaScript ES6+. Checkout <Part 2> on First Class Functions.
I’ve always been about the bottom line. Uninterested in pseudo intellectual concepts, fancy terminology and hype. Instead, I always reach for the tools and technologies that help me ship code as soon as possible. This approach was initially productive — specifically when I was building smaller “proof of concept” applications.
Unfortunately, this approach did not scale. As I progressed as a developer I started feeling the law of diminishing return on my productivity. Setting up a project, and reaching basic functionality was fast

Set Up SSL on Github Pages With Custom Domains for Free


Sign up for Cloudflare if you don’t already have an account.
Add your website, and make sure all automatically generated records match those on your registrar’s website.
3. If you already have a gh-pages website and are simply moving to https, you don’t need to do anything else.
4. If not, and are trying to set up your site at apex, create an A record pointing to Github’s IP addresses, else a CNAME pointing to your-username.github.io.
5. Make sure there’s a CNAME file at the root of your gh-pages repo with your domain name.
6. Make sure there’s a CNAME file at the root of your gh-pages repo with your domain name.
7. Go to your Domain Registrar’s website and change the Domain Name Servers to those Cloudflare provides you with.
8. Finish Setting up your Domain on Cloudflare and go to the Domain Dashboard.
9. Open the “Cloudflare Settings” for your domain, and change the SSL Setting to “Flexible SSL”.
10. Redirect all visitors to HTTPS/SSL using page rule.

🦋Electron: The Bad Parts – Hacker Noon
Most cross platform programming languages and frameworks contain good and bad parts. Electron probably has more than its share of the good — but also hides some dark secrets under its shining facade.

ICOs for Dummies (like me) – Hacker Noon
I have to admit. Blockchain is a fascinating world. I can’t think of anything as exciting since the birth of the iPhone and the App Store 10 years (technically 9 for the App Store). But at a much bigger scale. It feels as if the TCP/IP or Http protocol are being reinvented. And with it the whole digital ecosystem from the ground up.

Writing your first JavaScript library – Hacker Noon
Let’s get started by introducing what a library is, in JavaScript. Any program or functions you write to perform actions in your WebApp, for instance, is bundled up into a module that can be easily reused anywhere, instead of just adding the code directly to the scripts, just for your app’s use.
