Debunking the Myths of RPC & REST
"The internet is chock-full of articles, blog posts, and discussions about RPC and REST. Most are targeted at answering a question about using RPC or REST for a particular application, which in itself is a false dichotomy."

Understanding RPC Vs REST For HTTP APIs
"For the last few years, whenever somebody wants to start building an HTTP API, they pretty much exclusively use REST as the go-to architectural style, over alternative approaches such as XML-RPC, SOAP and JSON-RPC. REST is made out by many to be ultimately superior to the other “RPC-based” approaches, which is a bit misleading because they are just different. This article discusses these two approaches in the context of building HTTP APIs, because that is how they are most commonly used. REST and RPC can both be used via other transportation protocols, such as AMQP, but that is another topic entirely."

UTC is Enough for Everyone, Right?
Programming time is pretty weird. It can sometimes make you feel week in the knees, and very days and confused about how it all fits together. But watch it: this is hour burden to bear, and we can't just let it past us over.

Migrations: the sole scalable fix to tech debt.
Migrations are both essential and frustratingly frequent as your codebase ages and your business grows: most tools and processes only support about one order magnitude of growth before becoming ineffective, so rapid growth makes them a way of life. This post takes a look at why migrations are so important, and also how to run them effectively.

How it feels to learn JavaScript in 2016
"No JavaScript frameworks were created during the writing of this article.

The following is inspired by the article “It’s the future” from Circle CI. You can read the original here. This piece is just an opinion, and like any JavaScript framework, it shouldn’t be taken too seriously."

Native-Like Animations for Page Transitions on the Web
"Some of the most inspiring examples I’ve seen of front end development have involved some sort of page transitions that look slick, like they do in mobile apps. However, even though the imagination for these types of interactions seem to abound, their presence on actual sites that I visit do not.


We’ll build out the simplest possible distallation of these concepts so that you can apply them to any application, and then I’ll also provide the code for this more complex app if you’d like to dive in."

RESTful API Designing guidelines — The best practices
"The API is an interface, through which many developers interact with the data. A good designed API is always very easy to use and makes the developer’s life very smooth. API is the GUI for developers, if it is confusing or not verbose, then the developer will start finding the alternatives or stop using it."

How to Design Programs
"The typical course on programming teaches a “tinker until it works” approach. When it works, students exclaim “It works!” and move on. Sadly, this phrase is also the shortest lie in computing, and it has cost many people many hours of their lives. In contrast, this book focuses on habits of good programming, addressing both professional and vocational programmers."

Secret management design decisions: theory plus an example
"In this blog post I’ll discuss the design decisions that must be made while constructing a secret management automation solution. In addition I’ll share a simple utility that can be used to deploy secrets from AWS Parameter Store to an EC2 instance. This utility is based on a related blog post by AWS, but generalised to make it more useful for pretty much any application that has secrets stored in parameter store."

Guide to how conversational UI and chat bots can help reinvent any app’s UX
"One of the first trends in this new trajectory is conversational UI, a new user interface technique that’s becoming increasingly popular on mobile. Better known as chat bots, these programs are an evolution of user interface design that allow users to communicate with a digital experience using their own words and on their own terms. We’ve examined how brand apps in particular can leverage conversational UI best practices to enhance their own apps, and what considerations should go into developers’ experiments with their first chat bot."

Getters and Setters in JavaScript
I was recently asked by Ruth to explain what the purpose of getters and setters are in JavaScript and how to use them. This led to me somewhat ramble about all I know on the subject in the JSOxford channel of the Digital Oxford Slack. People seemed to find what I said useful so I thought it best to write a more coherent version.

The Beginner's Guide to ReactJS - Course by @kentcdodds
This course is for React newbies and those looking to get a better understanding of React fundamentals. With a focus on React fundamentals, you'll come out of this course knowing what problems React can solve for you and how it goes about solving those problems. You will have a good grasp on what JSX is and how it translates to regular JavaScript function calls and objects. Each lesson in this course is just a single index.html file which will help you keep your focus on learning React and not distracted by all the tools that make production applications work. The course wraps up with a lesson on how to move from these index.html files to a more production ready development environment and even how to deploy your app to a great service like Netlify. Enjoy!
