Birth & Death of JavaScript

Absolutely brilliant talk from Gary Bernhardt about JavaScript. Appearance of asm.js and all the low-level fun, that was going on in 2000’s.

This science fiction / comedy / absurdist / completely serious talk traces the history of JavaScript, and programming in general, from 1995 until 2035. It’s not pro- or anti-JavaScript; the language’s flaws are discussed frankly, but its ultimate impact on the industry is tremendously positive. For Gary’s more serious (and less futuristic) thoughts on programming, try some Destroy All Software screencasts.

Dashboards with GraphQL & ElasticSearch

Here’s an example of creating Dashboards with GraphQL and ElasticSearch from React community.

As a big fan of VueJS framework, it’s still nice to check what’s happening on the other side of the fence from React community fellow coders. 

Mitch Clay published an article on how you can utilise GraphQL with ElasticSearch to design dashboards for the your projects.

The stack is pretty common for JS environment:

  1. NodeJS
  2. React
  3. GraphQL with Apollo

But, the only bit I missed using – ElasticSearch engine, as more and more projects use it – it seems that I need to give it another look.

VueJS.London – Jest for Vue testing

In September, I was lucky to attend VueJS London conference. It was an amazing experience, with lots of interesting talented people from different corners of the EU and the States.

I’ll slowly start assembling the info on the talks that took place there. Once the slides become available I will start adding them here as well.

One of the greatest talks at the conference was by Roman Kuba. It was about test utils for VueJS, and actual experience on integrating Jest for Vue infrastructure.

Qobrix is slowly integrating VueJS as a sidekick for all the sophisticated UI/UX solutions, trying to reduce jQuery impact on the platform. One of the reasons behind a slow pace of integration – kind of frustrating situation with plethora of test tools.

Quick googling on the subject, brings some more structured materials from Roman, on VueJS/Jest integrations and how they do it in CodeShip.

One of the things that’s definitely worth checking – vue-test-utils.

The picture looks a bit outdated as it misses gazillion of trendy frameworks and transpilers but still relevant to the subject
