Deleting and Deactivating your Facebook account are two different things. Here's how to do both.

Facebook is in the news this week, with 'delete Facebook account' trending on search engines and social media. If you're thinking of deleting or deactivating your account, here's the difference between the two, and the steps you need to take to use either
As in the title. This is a question that most developers will make when introduced to a new shiny framework. Currently there are many frameworks that exist Xamarin, Fuse, React Native, Nativescript, Flutter, and so on… All these frameworks were built to solve the same common problem, to be able to build apps cross-platform with one codebase and have a native look, feel, and performance to the App.

To Decide on which framework to use. Or which one is the best. That my friend will send you down a looooong rabbit hole. Believe me. I’ve been down the entire stack and still there is always something new and shiny to use. The last 2 years i’ve been falling and falling and falling testing one framework after another. Now I actually feel that i’ve finally landed in Flutterland.

You might be thinking what is so special about Flutter that framework X can’t do?, I’ve narrowed it down to one word. The same word Eric Seidel used in last DartConf. “Control”.react test
If there's one thing computers are good for, it's automating repetitive, tedious startup or maintenance tasks that waste developers' time and, in the worst cases, serve as a deterrent to starting a project at all. Writing a few small scripts to handle the boilerplate and scaffolding can go a long way toward eliminating barriers to productivity. For modern web developers, some common technologies for adding custom tools to the tool belt are Perl (for old-school scripters) and Node.js (using JavaScript).

Dart is a newer language, originally developed by Google but now an ECMA standard, for building web, server, command-line, and mobile apps. It's a scalable, object-oriented programming language, with robust libraries and runtimes included out of the box. In this tutorial, we'll go over how you can get set up to write your own command-line utilities with Dart.

Check out the Dart Language Tour for a crash course in the language, or take a look at the FAQ for a higher-level overview. If you know JavaScript, Java, PHP, ActionScript, C/C , or another "curly brace" language, you'll find Dart to be familiar.php perl javascript node
Fuchsia a totally new operating system, currently in the very early stages of development at Google. How does it differ from Android and Chrome, and might it replace either one? Let’s break it down.
The Flutter mobile app SDK is a new way to build fast, beautiful mobile apps that helps developers break away from “cookie cutter” apps that have been so common in the past. People who try Flutter really like it; for example, see this, this, or this. Or here’s a list of articles and videos compiled by a third party.

As with any new system, people want to know what makes Flutter different, or put another way, “what is new and exciting about Flutter?” That is a fair question, and this article will try to answer it from a technical viewpoint — not just what is exciting, but why.
Migrate from the Old to New React Context API. This 6 and a half minute long video will show you how I migrate from the "old" context api to the new one. I have a global error component that I wanted to be accessible from anywhere in the app and I used context to do that. {Spencer Carli}react
Migrating from Redux to the New React Context API a ~9 minute video where I walk you through how to replace a portion of your redux state (the global theme) with the new React context API. This was very interesting for me - I think you'll find it interesting too! {Spencer Carli}react redux
The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, the print disabled, and the general public. Our mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge.

We began in 1996 by archiving the Internet itself, a medium that was just beginning to grow in use. Like newspapers, the content published on the web was ephemeral - but unlike newspapers, no one was saving it. Today we have 20 years of web history accessible through the Wayback Machine and we work with 450 library and other partners through our Archive-It program to identify important web pages.

As our web archive grew, so did our commitment to providing digital versions of other published works. Today our archive contains:

  • 279 billion web pages
  • 11 million books and texts
  • 4 million audio recordings (including 160,000 live concerts)
  • 3 million videos (including 1 million Television News programs)
  • 1 million images
  • 100,000 software programs
“What?!”, you say. “GraphQL is a server side query language. Redux is a client-side state management library. How could one replace the other?” Good question.graphql redux

At the stage of last conference, Dan Abramov unveiled a new feature / API for React called React Suspense. In case you missed it, you can re-watch the talk on YouTube

In short: the new feature allows you to defer rendering part of your application tree until some condition is met (for example data from an endpoint or a resource is loaded).react

So you’ve been constructing and using REST API’s for quite some time now and short while ago started hearing about GraphQL — a new hype in the field of API technologies. Some says it’s good, some says it’s not. Well, I am pretty sure you all must be wondering about what this GraphQL fuss is all about and how it’s different from the traditional approach.

The purpose of this article is to highlight the major features associated with GraphQL along with discussing the significant pros and cons associated with this particular API specification.graphql
GraphQL servers send your app into the world wearing only its birthday suit — everything is exposed. A quick introspection query reveals all possible API operations and data structures. That could change, but for now, all of your operations and data are laid bare.

Therefore, one might anticipate authentication and authorization are GraphQL first class citizens. But, neither of them are part of the official spec. That lack of direction created a lot of sleepless nights for my GraphQL server development, and it wasn’t until I watched Ryan Chenkie’s talk about directive permissions that I found a solution.graphql
The young web developer knows the web. They’ve spent countless hours slinging divs and casting margins. They’ve hammered out countless to-do applications in JavaScript, Python, Golang, Fortran, Basic… you name it!

But now, this hotshot developer wants to conquer a less familiar territory. They want to displace their team’s gang of mobile developers—all of them—by using the hip new framework, React Native. Thinking it’ll be practically like writing a simple web application, they install the React Native CLI and scaffold an empty project.

It starts off just fine. They find out that instead of divs, they must create Views. In order to create text, they must use the built in Text component. Instead of CSS, they must use inline JavaScript styles. In order to create a nice layout, they require some knowledge of flexbox.

But then they want to wield more powerful features like geolocation, audio input, or push notifications. They find that in order to enable these features, they must open up XCode and edit some fairly verbose configuration files, change the plist, and create headers and implementations in Objective-C. They start to think that maybe they should stick to the web.

Enter Expo

Fortunately, the beautiful team over at Expo has created a pretty powerful SDK that greatly improves the React Native developer experience. They’ve made it such that when you create an application with Expo, you will probably never have to crack open XCode or edit any platform-specific configuration react javascript
I’m often asked about that last mile of developing a React Native app (actually getting it into the app store). There’s more to it than just building your app and sending it off to Apple/Google — you’ve got to add icons, splash screens, write descriptions, and more before sending it off for review.

Today we’ll cover splash screens on iOS and Android.react
darktable is an open source photography workflow application and raw developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom for photographers. It manages your digital negatives in a database, lets you view them through a zoomable lighttable and enables you to develop raw images and enhance them.
I'm a long-time user of Greenshot, which is a handy free screen capture tool for Windows. While the standard PrintScreen key option in Windows lets you grab the entire screen or the current window, Greenshot lets you capture any region you like. Well, as long as it's a square or rectangle of course.

I recently discovered another screen capture program which is way more powerful than Greenshot, and it's also free. ShareX lets you capture all or part of the screen, and you can even capture non-rectangular areas too. Plus, there are dozens of additional options such as being able to apply OCR to text in an image, and upload captured images to various picture-sharing sites. If you often find yourself needing to grab and save images, perhaps as part of a web-based research exercise, then this program will save you loads of time.

ShareX is free, and is a 5 MB download from The file is malware-free according to VirusTotal, and the download site is rated as reputable by Web of Trust.
CSS Custom Properties (aka Variables) is a big win for front-end developers. It brings the power of variables to CSS, which results in less repetition, better readability and more flexibility. Plus, unlike variables from CSS preprocessors, CSS Variables are actually a part of the DOM, which has a lot of benefits.

The course contains eight interactive screencasts. All are short and to the point. At the end of most of them, the instructor asks you to solve a challenge, directly in the screencast window. This is a great way of making sure the knowledge sticks, and you'll get to check if your solution matches the instructors.

What you'll learn:

  • Fundamentals of CSS Variables
  • Local variables and overriding
  • Creating themes with variables
  • Changing variables with JavaScript
  • Responsiveness with CSS Variables
