Developer Spotlight: Matt Cain – Cosmic JS – Medium

  • Developer Spotlight: Matt CainIn our latest installment of the Cosmic JS Developer Spotlight Series, we sat down with Matt Cain, a web developer who took a physics undergrad and spring-boarded into the world of Java, Rails and ultimately, programming language agnostic APIs.
  • In addition to his day job of being a Creative Director and writing code, Matt is a Cosmic JS Contributor and responsible for several apps and blogs in our ecosystem.
  • More recently, I was pretty satisfied with the Premium User Blog app I built for Cosmic JS.Talk a little bit more about your process for building apps, who they’re for, and how Cosmic JS has helped.
  • Cosmic JS being essentially a simple to use, one-stop-shop for everything I need to deploy is a blessing.What are some technologies you are excited about that you are using today, or want to learn more about?I’m excited about using PWA’s and integrating bots in sites more.
  • I’m very much looking foward to where AR goes.To learn how you can contribute apps, blogs and extensions to the Cosmic JS Community, contact us at support@cosmicjs.com.

Note App Deployed — What have I learned ? – Comfort Ajala – Medium

my first react/js template app has been deployed! 
#reactjs #coding #Webdesign #webdev

  • Screenshot of the application: can be found under noteapp.ajalacomfort.comFew weeks ago, I embarked on a project based learning journey to improve my practical knowledge in web development.
  • So I began building a CRUD application with user authentication and authorization.
  • Thus basically a full-stack application on JS.Today I am proud to say the app is deployed on Heroku with the database hosted on mLab.
  • Yes the app is a very simple CRUD app, but it taught me a lot more than the 300 pages books I have read on JS.I have been drawn to project based learning as a result of this project and in this post I would like to list what I have learned as well as, what I plan to do next in my journey.You can find the application under: I have learnedJs Templating — EJSReact.js + ReduxToken based route Authentication and AuthorizationServer Rendering React ComponentsReusing componentsCSS TransitionsNode App DeploymentNoSQL — MongoDBAPI developmentThese are the main points I have understood via this project and I am proud of myself.I plan on creating a progressive web or/and a cross platform version via react-native after correcting a number of flaws in the app functionality and style.
  • Now I know my weaknesses, I will focus on those cracks in my upcoming projects.I am just excited to have an app deployed online for prospective employers to use as a meter instead of mere claims of my abilities in web dev.YT Channel: Ajala ComfortSee ya soon!

Building a new backend — Part 1 – lookapanda – Medium

Building a new backend — Part 1  #discord #webdevelopment #react #javascript #node #reactjs

  • Building a new backend — Part 1In this story I’d like to document my experiences in building a new backend.It represents my personal experiences and is not related to my profession as a Software Engineer.What is the backend for?This is a legitimate question, of course.
  • There is no real goal yet, I see it more like a personal challenge and practice.Some of my first pieces of code using LaravelI already built a backend quite some time ago already written in PHP using Laravel.
  • Times change quickly in a developers world and today I’m mostly programming in JavaScript (ES6, Node, etc.) and not that much in PHP anymore.Today (2017) I want to create something new again using the most modern technologies I can find.
  • REST APIs access information after all and said information needs to be stored somewhere.With my PHP API I was using MySQL (or actually MariaDB) and with my Node API it was MongoDB.
  • It should be easy to use but also powerful.In my next blog post I will share my first experiences in using Cassandra for building the database and probably also my decission for the framework I’ll be using.If you’ve come so far to read this very line, I want to say thank you.

React Native With An Express/MongoDB Backend
☞ 

#mongodb

  • Fortunately there is React Native : a framework which enables developers to build their apps with a markup language and stylesheet syntax mimicking that of the web, while bringing all the structure of React with it.
  • Building apps with React Native, developers have access to the rich ecosystem of open-source Node libraries.
  • By the end of this course you’ll be familiar enough with React Native and Node to begin building the entire stack of your next application with it, on your own.
  • What’s more, Node is great for server-side development (we’ll be using express ), and having your front-end and back-end developed in the same language is wonderful.
  • HTML/CSS takes minutes to learn, whereas getting your head around iOS development can take months.

Proper way of using url patterns  #angularjs #reactjs

  • The problem is that if I press f5 it’ll submit the form again, because of the URL is now different.
  • I’ve created a form which by submit uploads an item to the database.
