GraphQL is becoming all the rage, what with being able to query an API like you can query a database. There are two aspects when it comes to GraphQL development, the first being around creating GraphQL APIs and the other around creating applications that can query those APIs.
This time around we’re going to explore another popular framework. We’re going to see how to query a GraphQL API from within a React application using a variation of methods.Read More
You might remember that I’ve done quite a bit of content when it comes to developing GraphQL APIs with the Go programming language (Golang). Heck, I’ve even written a book and published a course on the subject. However, in everything I’ve done thus far, I haven’t demonstrated how to interact with a GraphQL using Golang.
Sure, a lot of the time you’ll be using something like React, Angular, or Vue to interact with your web service, but that doesn’t mean you’ll never need to query a GraphQL API from Go or execute a mutation.
In this tutorial we’re going to see some quick examples on how to make HTTP requests with GraphQL queries using Golang.Read More
I’m pleased to announce that Containers, Virtual Machines, and Orchestration has been published to all of the popular podcast networks. This is the 33rd episode of the show and the first two-part episode to make an appearance.
This episode features Marek Sadowski from IBM and dives into the DevOps space, focusing particularly on deployment strategies such as virtual machines and containers, and how to orchestrate potentially massive amounts of them in an efficient and automated fashion.
If you’re not quite comfortable with Docker, virtual machines, Kubernetes (K8s), and similar, this is an episode you should listen to, since all are very relevant and necessary skills for developers.Read More
So what if we were building a React application and needed to manipulate images prior to uploading them to a server?
In this tutorial we’re going to see how to use Cropper.js to crop images within a React web application. While we won’t be uploading these images to a remote server for storage, such as a task can be easily accomplished with a bit of imagination.Read More
What if we wanted to execute HTTP requests using a popular framework like React?
While some organizations think it is up to the user to protect themselves by choosing strong usernames and passwords, the developer can help influence good password choices by including it in the design of the application. For example, the developer could include bars, percentages, or colors to help dictate quality of a password as the user enters it into a form.
A lot of us know a weak password is short and contains either alpha or numeric, but never both. We also know strong passwords include symbols as well as variations of character case-sensitivity. So how can we check for these things in the application?
The popularity of Amazon Alexa and virtual assistants in general is no question, huge. Having a web application and mobile application isn’t enough for most organizations anymore, and now you need to start supporting voice operated applications.
So what does it take to create something for Alexa? How different is it from creating a web application?
In this tutorial we’re going to see how to create an Amazon Alexa Skill, also referred to as an Alexa application, that interacts with a MongoDB cluster using the Go programming language (Golang) and AWS Lambda.Read More
