Cutting Edge - Programming CSS: Bundling and Minification

Cutting Edge - Programming CSS: Bundling and Minification | Web Dev For Newbs | Scoop.it

An old mantra of Web development says that too many requests affect page performance. If you know a trick to reduce the number of HTTP requests triggered by your Web pages, then by all means, apply it. As Web pages get filled with richer visual content, the cost of downloading related resources such as CSS, scripts and images grows significantly. Surely, for the most part, these resources may be cached locally by the browser, but the initial footprint can be difficult to sustain. In addition, fewer and smaller requests help keep bandwidth low, reduce latency and lengthen battery life. These are critical factors in mobile browsing. A widely accepted approach to address these issues consists of a combination of two actions: bundling and minification.

Developing mobile apps with Node.js and MongoDB, Part 2: Hints and tips

Developing mobile apps with Node.js and MongoDB, Part 2: Hints and tips | Web Dev For Newbs | Scoop.it

Get implementation details on using Node.js (server-side JavaScript), rather than Java technology, to develop systems of engagement. In this article, the IBM Extreme Blue team who developed a RESTful backend application using Node.js and MongoDB shares their thought process and recommendations.

In this article, we share lessons we learned in the process of developing a RESTful backend application using Node.js and MongoDB. We highlight our thought process in several high-level design and implementation decisions. We'll cover these topics:
* Leveraging NPM (Node Packaged Modules)
* Understanding asynchronous programming
* Structuring a large Express.js application's routing configuration
* Application-level logging
* Approaching data persistence and modeling
* Solving Passbook-specific challenges including cryptographic functions not supported by Node
* And we address subtle "gotchas" in hopes of expediting the learning process for those interested in Node.js and MongoDB development:
* Don't make assumptions about objects or their properties in a dynamically typed language
* Avoid implicit control flow
* Understand your dependencies' behavior

Building Multiplayer Games with Node.js and Socket.IO

Building Multiplayer Games with Node.js and Socket.IO | Web Dev For Newbs | Scoop.it

With the release of the Ouya, Xbox One and PS4 this year, couch-based console gaming appears to be as popular as ever. Despite the proliferation of multi-player games available on mobile devices, and even the advent of multi-player experiences available on the web, sitting next to the person you’re playing a game with is still an irreplaceable experience. While experimenting with Node.js and the Socket.IO library, I found a perfect opportunity to not only learn some interesting new technologies, but also experiment with using the web and common devices (computers and mobile phones) to replicate a console-like gaming experience.

This article will give a brief overview of the fundamental concepts of the Socket.IO library in the context of building a multi-player, multi-screen word game. A web browser on a large screen device, such as a TV or computer will be the ‘console’ and mobile browsers will act as the ‘controllers’. Socket.IO and Node.js will provide the necessary wiring for all the browsers to share data and provide a cohesive, real-time game experience.

Interactive Git Cheatsheet, categorizing commands based on what they affect.
thematicnet.com's insight:

The perfect reference for git. I'm often forgetting git commands since I only program part-time on the side. This should save lots of time I would otherwise be searching google for the command to add a remote repository (my most recent example).
