A lot of people use Gmail. I do, too. It's great, but having to access it via a web browser instead of a dedicated program can sometimes be inconvenient. Browsers take up lots of RAM, for example. And it's annoyingly easy to inadvertently close your mail when closing your browser, even if you didn't really mean to close the Gmail tab.

Plus, because you're accessing Gmail via a browser, there's no Gmail icon on your task bar. It's just another browser window or tab. So it's not easy to quickly flip between your email and another open program.

Kiwi for Gmail is an email program designed solely for Gmail. It works like a normal Windows program rather than a web browser, but the experience is precisely the same. You will hardly know you're not using a browser. Plus, you don't need to configure Gmail settings for IMAP or POP in order to use it. Just log into Gmail via Kiwi in the normal way.map
These last few days, I had a chance to focus on improving the performances of the React Native app we build in our company: being already on both markets (iOS/Android), the approach I took was mainly JS-focused, in order to be able to deploy the tweaks via Microsoft’s Codepush tool.

I have to admit, I was quite surprised by how effective some of these changes have been — and this is why I’m sharing them with you all, hoping to help you understand that improving performances can be simple; not something that only the hardcore veterans can manage to pull off, as I used to think prior to this past week.microsoft react
For most people having a good memory means being able to remember more information clearly for long periods of time. For neuroscientists too, the inability to remember was long believed to represent a failure of the brain's mechanisms for storing and retrieving information.

But according to a new review paper from Paul Frankland, a senior fellow in CIFAR's Child & Brain Development program, and Blake Richards, an associate fellow in the Learning in Machines & Brains program, our brains are actively working to forget. In fact, the two University of Toronto researchers propose that the goal of memory is not to transmit the most accurate information over time, but to guide and optimize intelligent decision making by only holding on to valuable information.
I’ve been developing web applications for many years but until recently was constrained to developing on (and for) a Java stack that had to support old versions of Internet Explorer. This left me mostly casting envious glances at modern web development tools, frameworks and practices — dreaming of a working life filled with ES6 and flexbox.

A few months ago I was finally able to start devoting the majority of my time researching, prototyping and finally developing in a number of different frameworks. I initially spent an equal amount of time looking at Angular, Aurelia, React and Vue… but eventually settled on React.react
The Getty Museum has over 114,000 images you can use for free. Most are historical works of art, including many types of images such as paintings, prints, jewelry, manuscripts, photographs, architecture, maps, playing cards, sculpture, decorative arts, artists' sketchbooks, and much more.

The images are high quality and more are added regularly to the collection.

Images are offered through the Getty Museum's Open Content Program and accessible through the Getty Search Gateway, where you can search the collection by type (photograph, manuscripts, jewelry, figures, architecture, map, etc.), by name, by place (France, Scotland, Japan, Egypt, etc.), and by source.map
UI developers love GraphQL because it lets them fetch data quickly and efficiently, without having to make multiple API calls or trying to make sense of outdated documentation. With so many benefits on the client, it might seem like implementing a server to get all of these features might be very difficult. And a year and a half ago, when GraphQL had just been open sourced, it certainly looked that way! There weren’t many examples, and the syntax for defining types and fields looked pretty complicated at first glance.graphql
There are at least five ways to handle the this context in React. Let’s consider the merits of each approach.react
One of the most powerful feature of git is its ability to create and manage branches in the most efficient way.

This tutorial explains the following git branch command examples:

  • Create a New git Branch
  • Delete a Git branch
  • Delete remote-tracking branches
  • Switch to a New git Branch to Work
  • Create a New Branch and Switch Immediately
  • Working on a Git Branch (Making Changes)
  • View all Local git Branches
  • View Remote git Branches
  • View Merged and Not-Merged Local Git Branch
  • Rename a Git Branch
  • Force Rename a Git Branch
  • Display Git Branch in Color
  • Display Full or Partial SHA1 Git Commit Values
  • Create a Branch at a Specific Location
  • Display Specific Git Branch Details
Scope Hoisting, “magic comments”, and more!

After we released webpack v2, we made some promises to the community. We promised that we would deliver the features you voted for. Moreover, we promised to deliver them in a faster, more stable release cycle.

No more year-long betas, no breaking changes between release candidates. We promised to do you right by you, the community that makes webpack thrive.

The webpack team is proud to announce that today we have released webpack 3.0.0!!! You can download or upgrade to it today!!unity
No one can deny the power of a good quote. They motivate and inspire us to be our best.

Great quotes have an incredible ability to put things in perspective. Here are 50 of my absolute favorites:
Step 1

Run command-line as an Administrator. Then run the below mention command. type your port number in yourPortNumber

netstat -ano | findstr :yourPortNumber

Step 2

Then you execute this command after identify the PID.

taskkill /PID typeyourPIDhere /F

P.S. Run the first command again to check if process is still available or not. You'll get empty line if process is successfully ended.
The result of this is that our new hires or back end engineers, who are not necessarily well-acquainted with the modern JavaScript ecosystem, may feel overwhelmed by the barrage of new things that they have to learn just to complete their feature or bug fix in a web app.

It’s imperative that they are guided to embrace this evolution of the front end, learn to navigate the ecosystem with ease, and get productive in shipping code to our users as fast as possible. We have come up with a study guide to introduce why we do what we do.

This study guide is inspired by “A Study Plan to Cure JavaScript Fatigue” and is mildly opinionated in the sense that we recommend certain libraries/frameworks to learn for each aspect of front end development, based on what is currently deemed most suitable at Grab.

We explain why a certain library is chosen and provide links to learning resources to enable the reader to pick it up on their own. Alternative choices that may be better for other use cases are provided as well for reference and further self-exploration.javascript
In collaboration with the new AuthO Extend platform and Mikhail from Reindex, today we’re thrilled to announce a new experience that will make it easy for the GraphQL community to share different API development patterns, host example code, and write great tutorials.

It’s called Apollo Launchpad.graphql unity
Switching to a declarative approach at Major League Soccer

I’m a firm believer that the best code is no code. More code often leads to more bugs and more time spent maintaining it. At Major League Soccer, we’re a very small team, so we take this principle to heart. We try to optimize where we can, either through maximizing code reuse or lightening our maintenance burden.

In this article, you’ll learn how we offloaded data fetching management to Apollo, which allowed us to delete nearly 5,000 lines of code. Not only is our application a lot slimmer since switching to Apollo, it’s also more declarative since our components only request the data that they need.

What do I mean by declarative and why is that a good thing? Declarative programming focuses on the end goal, while imperative programming focuses on the steps it took to get there. React itself is declarative.graphql react redux
In this video I demonstrate how to use Redux to manage your navigation state for a React Native app backed by React Navigation.react redux
With all the excitement around CSS Grid, I haven't seen as much talk about the new fr CSS length unit (here's the spec). And now that browser support is rapidly improving for this feature, I think this is the time to explore how it can be used in conjunction with our fancy new layout engine because there are a number of benefits when using it; more legible and maintainable code being the primary reasons for making the switch.
Reliable and free network scanner to analyse LAN. The program shows all network devices, gives you access to shared folders, provides remote control of computers (via RDP and Radmin), and can even remotely switch computers off. It is easy to use and runs as a portable edition. It should be the first choice for every network admin.
