Livecoding Recap: React-Navigation With React Native [Video]

I channeled my inner Darth Vader yet again. I still don’t know why my sound is garbled on YouTube but works on LiveEdu. They’re both using the same stream.
This week, I wanted to try out react-navigation because I’ve heard a lot about it. Supposed to be the big new (official) thing since Navigator was deprecated in April.

Top 5 Free Tools for Rapid Web App Development

Starting up has never been easier, but it’s easy to forget yourself and start shaving a yak instead of getting things done. I’ve been there so many times, I decided to settle for a toolkit that allows me to start (and fail) fast, without spending a single cent, with a limited amount of time. The 5 tools I want to present now are the absolute minimum with which I tend to start every new project.
The list contains mostly the applications that are helpful in setting up landing pages and very limited MVPs. You won’t find here backend solutions or languages that will help you build an application with killer performance. Usually the solution there is to go with whatever is the cheapest, but the end-user does not see the end result anyway.

Feeding Server Timing API from ASP.NET Core

There is a number of Web APIs which allow you to measure the performance of web applications:

User Timing API (access to high precision timestamps).
Resource Timing API (timing information related to resources on a document).
Navigation Timing API (timing information related to navigation and elements).

The youngest member of the family is Server Timing API which allows for communicating the server performance metrics to the client. The API is not widely supported yet, but Chrome Devtools is able to interpret the information sent from the server and expose it as part of the request timing information. Let’s see how this feature can be utilized from ASP.NET Core.

Using Angular 2 Components in a Non-Angular App

Lucidpress is a large application—hundreds of thousands of lines of handwritten JavaScript. After seeing the success Lucidchart had in modernizing its UI with Angular, we wanted to follow suit, but we didn’t have the resources to do a wholesale rewrite all at once. We wanted to write some new Angular 2 components and even reuse several big components from Lucidchart, but we needed to be able to fire up individual components scattered around the application, without having one big Angular app controlling them all.
This use case isn’t one that’s well-documented by the Angular team, but it turns out that it can be done cleanly and without a whole lot of boilerplate code for bootstrapping each component. In this blog post, I’ll walk you through the process of setting up a few Angular 2 components in a simple non-Angular JavaScript application.

Learn Web API Using WPF, WebForms, and Xamarin

What Is the ASP.NET Web API?
ASP.NET Web API is a framework to build web APIs on top of the .NET framework, which makes it easy to build HTTP services that comprise of a range of clients, including mobile devices, web browsers, and desktop applications.
Web API is similar to ASP.NET MVC, so it contains all of MVC’s features.

WebAssembly Overview: So Fast! So Fun! Sorta Difficult!

WebAssembly was first described to me as “a way to run C++ on the web,” which was technically vague enough to ignore, despite my love of both C++ and the web. I heard about it again later at the 2016 Chrome Dev Tools Summit, and I decided to check it out. After having played with WebAssembly a little bit, I can honestly say I love the technology and am excited to see it evolve.
Before going any further, here are a few things that I think WebAssembly isn’t and won’t be in the foreseeable future:

New GIS Platform

Good to speak with Andy Dearing, CEO of Boundless, about their new Suite 4.10, designed to streamline the creation of maps and applications using the Boundless open GIS ecosystem. Additionally, the company has a new software development kit (SDK) and contributions to the community release of GeoServer 2.11 for developers.
Boundless offers an open GIS solution through a combination of technology, products, and experts, to give enterprises deeper intelligence and insights into their location-based data. The Boundless platform is built upon open source technology and open APIs that generate actionable location intelligence across third-party apps, content services, and plugins for enterprise applications.
