Object Creation in Javascript: Functional Instantiation vs Prototypal Instantiation vs Pseudo Classical Instantiation
Object creation in Javascript can be a pretty hairy subject with so many different types of techniques to create an Object. In this post I hope to cover four different types of techniques and discuss the pros and cons of each. I’ll be covering Functional Instantiation, Functional Instantiation with Shared Methods, Prototypal Instantiation, and Pseudo Classical Instantiation.

JavaScript Classes and Instantiation Patterns
JavaScript's idiosyncrasies can be a bit frustrating, and functional classes are no exception. The language implements functional classes (aka constructor functions) as a critical technique for generating multiple objects with similar properties and methods. The four styles utilized to implement functional classes are functional, functional-shared, prototypal, and pseudoclassical. Mastering all four can prove to be an unnecessarily complicated endeavor, as each approach levies a unique interface with differing approaches to object construction. The fantastic news is that under the hood all four constructor function styles are doing basically the exact same thing. The quick reference below (Download @2x) demonstrates these strong similarities to hopefully eliminate confusion between styles.

Why You Should Go For a Walk When You Need Creative Inspiration
Shared article from Feedly via Lifehacker http://lifehacker.com

You know the scenario. You’re looking for a creative idea and it’s just not coming. Inspiration isn’t exactly cooperative. If you’re in need of an idea and don’t have time to set yourself up for inspiration, try going for a walk.

As neuroscientist Andrew Tate explains, going for a walk is a quick way to give your brain a lot of the circumstances that help with idea generation. It gets you away from your desk, it increases your blood flow, and it exposes you to more stimulus than you’d normally experience sitting around inside:

A simple walk outside can aid your creative brain if you find yourself stuck at a desk and unable to elicit the next bright spark. Instead of sitting, waiting for inspiration to strike, head outside for five minutes and see if the extra blood flow can get the creative juices flowing.

Tate suggests that the opposite approach—that is, staying still at your desk—is better for focused work where you’re trying to find a solution to a problem with a single answer. However, when you need your brain to think creatively and break out of the rote pattern, going for a walk will encourage you to break your cycle in a number of ways that can all help contribute to a bright idea. It’s not a guarantee, but it’s better than staring at your computer monitor for hours.

Panda Strike: High-performance Web and Mobile Apps and Zero-hassle Dev Ops
There's been a lot of excitement lately about React. React seems to have bumped Angular from the top of the hippest-framework mountain. This is unfortunate, because both of these frameworks are bad for your application's health. They're also bad for the entire software industry. For new applications, please, for the love of all things open, use Web components instead.
