Faster programming (with ES6): Magic Getters, Setters and Variable Function Names (Part 3/4)

The aim of this series is to show you how to program faster by writing less code. In part one you get an overview what I mean by writing less code, part 2 shows how destructuring works, how you can use the arrow function and default Params to reduce code. Here in part 3 you’ll learn more about magic getters/setters and the Variable Function Names.

Faster Programming (with ES6): Destructuring and Arrow Function (Part 2/4)

This series is about how to program „faster“. It is not, however, about typing code faster but to write less code in the first place. It saves time but also you have to read less code and the effort to maintain it sinks in the long run (more about it in the introduction). In part 2 I’ll show you how to use destructuring and the Arrow Function.  Weiterlesen

Faster Programming (with ES6/TypeScript): Introduction

Our daily business as a JavaScript/TypeScript developer is to work with lots of code. The bigger the project, the more code you need to read – instead of writing it. The idea for this four-part series is that in the long term a project always benefits from writing less. Make the code-base smaller, cleaner, so that you and others don’t need to read so much. This allows faster programming and less code increases maintainability.


FENNEC – das Projekt zur Bachelorarbeit

Im Rahmen meiner Doktorarbeit am Lehrstuhl für Bioinformatik an der Universität Würzburg habe ich den FENNEC – Functional Exploration of Natural Networks and Ecological Communities – entwickelt, eine Webapplikation die es Biologen ermöglicht große Datenmengen automatisiert auszuwerten.

Ivory Becomes FOS Now – CKEditor Bundle for Symfony

Maybe you heard about it: The Symfony Bundle „egeloen/ckeditor-bundle“ was looking for a new maintainer. And the Symfony 4 compatibility was missing. Having the downloads in mind I did not expect it to be that difficult to find new maintainers. At the end Marko Kunic and I took that place. But let us take a look back into the history.

Simple reproduzierbare Entwicklungsumgebungen mit Nix

Sebastian hatte in seinem Blogpost Python-Abhängigkeiten projektbezogen verwalten das Problem, bestimmte Shell-Tools reproduzierbar für alle Entwickler bereitstellen zu müssen. In seinem Fall ging es dabei nur um awscli und awsebcli, beides Python-Tools von PyPI. Das geht relativ angenehm über seine genannte Methode mit pip und virtualenv. Selbst mit der Einschränkung auf PyPI als Quelle für die Abhängigkeiten zeigen sich jedoch schon die Vorteile von Nix.

Python-Abhängigkeiten projektbezogen verwalten

Ich bin generell eher kein Python-Entwickler und kam irgendwann in die Situation, Python-Abhängigkeiten bei der Nutzung von AWS und unterschiedlichen CLI-Tools (aws-cli, eb-cli, etc.) zu verwalten. Jetzt kann man natürlich sagen: „Egal – installiert euch lokal-global das aktuellste aws/eb-cli und gut ist“.


Of Love and Hate: TypeScript, Redux and immutable.js

I love Redux. It’s such an elegant and simple concept that solves so many problems. But like every other solution, adding new concepts to your code base can also introduce the occasional headache.

One of these headaches is that Redux does not enforce a lot of it’s conventions, but when you don’t adhere to them, things start breaking further down the road in strange ways.

Today, I’m going refer to one of Redux‘ three principles: State is read-only
