Recently I’ve decided to switch to using React in a client’s SPA project currently developed in Angular 8. The way to go about such transitions is to build a bridge between the frameworks (i.e. React-Angular), use React in all new developments and gradually migrate old components to React, until the entire application is written in […]

This actually surprised me as developers with good FED (Front End Development) skills actually have an advantageous starting point, so I decided to write this short post as a short […]
As Node.js gains continuous traction offering parallel and in many times superior qualities compared to traditional technologies, the question of optimizing our app/service becomes one of increased importance. Whether we’re building a monolith server or a microservices oriented solution, we’d like to squeeze more juice out of the underlying CPU/VM by running optimized code.
Putting aside […]

It is used widely to process for example live Twitter feeds, consume and process Kafka topic messages or data from Amazon S3, simple TCP sockets or custom input streams/feeds.
In many cases, we are perfectly […]

One big challenge is making sure our services are up and running at all times, that we have enough free space on our drives for running smoothly, restarting services when new versions are deployed […]
