What Makes an Ideal Low Code App Development Platform?

The Current State of the Mobile Landscape If someone stepped forward a decade or two ago and claimed that, in the near future, we would all have pocket-sized touchscreen devices that acted as gateways to multiple technological feats such as browsing the internet at high speeds, playing graphics intensive games, hailing cabs, booking flights, scheduling restaurant reservations, and purchasing products, ...

Getting Up and Running With Foundation for Apps

I have been programming for 9 years now, mostly focused on Java EE development. One area that I’m always interested in exploring is front-end web development and web apps. One thing that interests me a lot on the front-end side of development are frameworks. A framework can give you everything you need to get up and running and prototyping. In this ...

Developing Front-End Microservices With Polymer Web Components And Test-Driven Development (Part 5/5): Using Microservices

In the previous article we built two Web Components (tc-book-form and tc-books), learned how to change their style through properties, how to control them through exposed functions as well as how to connect them using custom events. We developed most of the code using Test-Driven Development approach. Both front-end Web Components and back-end server are packed into a single microservice ...

Improving Shipscope Performance with WebSockets

Nearly a year ago, we released Shipscope, a Chrome extension for monitoring your projects on Codeship. We’ve received some really good feedback from our users, and I want to share some of that insight in this post. In order to provide frequent status updates, Shipscope requested project status from our API server every 10 seconds. Multiply this by a rapidly ...

Developing Front-End Microservices With Polymer Web Components And Test-Driven Development (Part 4/5): Styling And Communication

In the previous article we developed our second Polymer Web Component. With two of them functionally finished, we’ll apply styles and create a way for users of our components to have partial control of the look and feel. Once that is done, we’ll improve our Demo page and create proper communication between our components. This article is part of Developing ...

Using the gdb Debugger with Go

Troubleshooting an application can be fairly complex, especially when dealing with highly concurrent languages like Go. It can be fairly simple to add print statements to determine subjective application state at specific intervals, however it’s much more difficult to respond dynamically to conditions developing in your code with this method. Debuggers provide an incredibly powerful troubleshooting mechanism. Adding code for ...

Developing Front-End Microservices With Polymer Web Components And Test-Driven Development (Part 3/5): The Second Component

In the previous article we finished one Polymer Web Component. It contained a form that could be used to add, update and remove books by sending HTTP requests to the back-end server. We also explored few different ways to interact with the component from outside by calling its functions. In this article we’ll create the second component that will be ...

Tutorial: Building a Todo Mobile App with Ionic, Angular, Appery.io Visual App Builder and Database

For years, developers had to make a choice: build a single hybrid app with a so-so user experience, or build a native app for each platform with a great user experience. Developers don’t have to make this choice anymore. By integrating the Ionic SDK into Appery.io, developers can build enterprise HTML5/hybrid apps on a single code base that offer a native experience ...

Developing Front-End Microservices With Polymer Web Components And Test-Driven Development (Part 2/5): Polishing The First Component

In the previous article we created our first Polymer Web Component using Test-Driven Development approach. While all the specifications we wrote were implemented, there are still few things we should do to polish this component. The tc-book-form currently has the form with all the input fields required by the back-end. It also has buttons to add or update and delete ...
