A version/environment manager is essential if you work with different Node.js versions—but which should you use? Ayooluwa Isaiah investigates the competing options.
What if you could write sloppy code and have Ruby fix it for you automatically? With RuboCop, you can! Of course, linters and auto-formatters have other benefits, even if your code is pristine. Join Ayooluwa Isaiah for a tour of RuboCop.
Caching is a common technique for making your applications faster. It lets you avoid slow operations by reusing previous results. In this article, Ayo Isaiah walks us through the different options for caching in NodeJS applications.
Have you ever thought about trying typescript for your app's front end? It's enticing, but the thought of porting all that existing JS is just too much. But what if you could gradually introduce typescript into your existing app, only using it where it made sense? In this article, Ayo Isaiah shows us how to do just that.
When picking a language for your next project, few things are more critical than the tooling it provides. In this article, Ayooluwa Isaiah wraps up our Go for Rubyists series with an introduction to go tooling.
Many of the concepts you're already familiar with as a web developer are applicable in Go. In this article, Ayooluwa Isaiah shows us how middleware, templating, and other aspects of the go language work together to create a coherent web-development experience.
When you're deciding on a technology to use for your project, it helps to have a broad understanding of your options. You may be tempted to build a web service in Go for performance reasons - but what would that code actually look like? How would it compare to languages like Ruby or JS? In this article, Ayooluwa Isaiah gives us a guided tour through the building blocks of go web services so you'll be well-informed.
When you're evaluating a language for your next project, few things are more important than available third-party libraries and the package manager that ties them together. While early versions of Go lacked a package manager, they've made up for lost time. In this article, Ayooluwa Isaiah introduces us to go's module ecosystem to help us decide if go is "a go" for our next project.
These days fewer and fewer web developers get to specialize in a single language like Ruby. We use different tools for different jobs. In this article, Ayooluwa Isaiah argues that Go is the perfect complement to Ruby. The developer who knows both is in a great position to handle almost any back-end challenge.
Go has built-in features to make it easier for programmers to implement logging. Third parties have also built additional tools to make logging easier. What's the difference between them? Which should you choose? In this article Ayooluwa Isaiah describes both of these and discusses when you'd prefer one over the other.
