Top 5 Articles – Week of March 17th
A colleague of mine passed this article over to me to explain Promises in AngularJS. This blog post by Andy Shora provides a great explanation, definitely check it out if you are into Angular JS!
#2 : How We Make Trello
I love Trello, a big thanks to my colleague Luciano Diaz as he introduced me to Trello about a year ago. We use it for project management at work, but I have been using Fog Creek products for about 4 years. We were previously using Fogbugz. The company makes great software and Joel Spolsky is an interesting guy to follow. Definitely check this out – I love to look under the hood of products to find out how they are made.
Even though this tutorial is from 2012, its still very relevant. It’s a great tutorial which utilizes Twilio and Nodejs to setup a real-time voting app. I used the app to showcase real-time features to the management team at my day job, everyone was supremely impressed. It also gave me a better idea of the power of Node.js.
#4 : Iconic Framework
Another recommendation from a colleague, a framework for developing mobile apps! Looks very slick, I need to take a deeper dive – but on the surface I saw that it supports AngularJs! Definitely a framework to keep an eye on!
#5 : AngularJS 2.0
Last but not least, an announcement about AngularJS 2.0! The MVC framework is growing up and with it comes a huge milestone release to make it faster, simpler, and more capable!
