What Is a CDN and How Does It Work?

CDN - you keep seeing the acronym. Maybe in URLs, maybe on landing pages, but it never quite clicked - what are Content Delivery Networks, what do they do exactly? We'll explain in this overview article, and demonstrate on two popular ones in followup posts.CDN Basics A CDN is a network of computers that delivers content. More specifically, it's a bunch of servers geographically positioned between the origin server of some web content, and the user requesting it, all with the purpose of delivering the content faster by reducing latency. This is their primary purpose. These geographically closer servers, also called PoPs or Points of Presence, also cache the cacheable content which removes a lot of the load from the origin server. There are different types of CDNs offering different kinds...

What are the Best Programming Languages if you DON’T have a Degree?

Without a degree, your best chances of getting work is with a small business. Over 80% of small businesses use PHP to power their websites. So that makes PHP the #1 choice for those with no degrees. WordPress is also widely used by small business, and WordPress is created with PHP, some JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3. Together, these coding languages are part of what is called the ‘web stack’.

HTTP/2: Background, Performance Benefits and Implementations

On top of the infrastructure of the internet --- or the physical network layers --- sits the Internet Protocol, as part of the TCP/IP, or transport layer. It's the fabric underlying all or most of our internet communications. A higher level protocol layer that we use on top of this is the application layer. On this level, various applications use different protocols to connect and transfer information. We have SMTP, POP3, and IMAP for sending and receiving emails, IRC and XMPP for chatting, SSH for remote sever access, and so on. The best-known protocol among these, which has become synonymous with the use of the internet, is HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol). This is what we use to access websites every day. It was devised by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN as early as 1989. The specification fo...

Google Flutter vs Swift, Java and Kotlin

Mobile app development has moved toward hybrid apps, using the web stack (HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript,) and frameworks like Phonegap or React Native. But when it comes to the development of high demand (in terms of performance) mobile apps, using native languages like Swift for iOS and Java for Android is still the way to go. This might change with Googles Flutter framework. Check out the video:https://flutter.io/https://facebook.github.io/react-native/https://phonegap.com/ Thanks!

Sending messages using SENDBIRD API in Laravel

  SENDBIRD API INTEGRATION WITH LARAVEL In this article I will be integrating the SendBird API into a Laravel based website. This will require some novice knowledge of Laravel such as working with the file system, views and some other basic Laravel functionality. When using this API you will also need to understand the basics of using a REST API. GETTING STARTED The first thing you need to do is wait for the API key to become available after creating your new app.I would like to let you know that a message comes up and you will wait for it to go away before you can start making calls to the API. What they don’t tell you is that it’s not a dynamic call, so you will need to refresh the page or you’ll be waiting all day for it to go away.SendBird API calls are all RES...

8 Tips for Improving Bootstrap Accessibility

A few years ago, I wrote about my experiences on developing a Bootstrap version 3 project to be fully accessible for people with disabilities. This focussed mostly on how accessible it is in terms of front-end design. (It didn’t cover accessibility in terms of screen readers, as that’s a whole other story.) While I could see that the developers behind Bootstrap were making an effort, there were a few areas where this popular UI library fell short. I could also see that there were issues raised on the project that showed they were actively improving — which is fantastic, considering how approximately 3.6% of websites use Bootstrap. Recently, Bootstrap version 4 was released, so let’s take a look and see if any of the issues I had in the past have improved. What We’re Looking For with Design...
