Custom Post Pagination in WordPress

See the original posting on DZone Python

If you’re dealing with lots of custom posts in WordPress and if you’re a theme developer, this is probably a well known issue to you. Lots of people are discussing this pagination thing in different forums. However, it’s really not that tough to paginate custom posts. Let’s find out how we can do it easily.

Query CPTs

This is the first thing you are going to need, is to write a custom query. Because when you have a bunch of posts in your collection, you will start thinking about the pagination. So it’s time to find some posts. The following code will find all the posts of post type book and display their titles

JavaScript Messaging Patterns

Message queues are well-known tools in several longstanding developer ecosystems like Java and PHP, but what about the Universal JavaScript/Node.js community? Darick Bailey from Watch Me Code will give us some insights into message-based architectures using RabbitMQ as the guest on this week’s Eat Sleep Code Podcast from the Telerik Developer Network.

The Toxic Side of Free. Or: How I Lost the Love for My Side Project (Part 1)

This is a story about JS Bin. I’ve told one story of JS Bin before, and this is the b-side: the dark side. But remember with everything I share with you, JS Bin is the longest running live pastebin, and it’s not going anywhere. It will continue to run and serve its users. Even the scumbags.

How to Design a Useful JavaScript Framework

See the original posting on DZone Python

Based on my highly scientific analysis, there are currently 13.98 javascript frameworks per JavaScirpt developer. I’ve personally been on two projects where a framework was built, completely scrapped, and rewritten BEFORE THE PROJECT WAS DELIVERED! Based on this observation and the literal wasteland of half baked frameworks available, I’m sharing some insight on how to design a useful framework. Follow these rules and you’ll have a higher probability of having something useful, ignore them, and well…I guess that’s your choice, I won’t hate you for it (OK, maybe I will a little).

Step One: Pick an Existing Framework

No, this is not a tongue-in-cheek joke, this is reality. Unless you initially demonstrated your framework at Bar Camp back in 2006, you should start with something that already exists and first deliver your project with that.

How to reduce visual regressions with quick peer based UI reviews

See the original posting on DZone Python

Chances are your engineering team is Agile and engaged in iterative development for UIs. God bless your heart if it is not. The argument, that UI development cannot be done iteratively has long been settled. But after connecting with ex-colleagues, networking with counterparts at other firms and in my own travels, I have come to understand different gaps and holes which surface every now and then in different companies. One of those is how to handle regressions related to User Interfaces during Agile development, especially when you are releasing every few weeks or days.

You say, well a good set of unit tests and automation test should have you covered. I say, not so fast. Yes, they will help (if written well) for changes in functionality, but what about the changes that are not in the purview of these tests. An obvious example would be that of a holistic CSS change after you have done a refactor of a few screens in the name of consistency of look and feel, color palette. An even more specific example would be your team having spent a spike/sprint on making web pages responsive using flex box. And doing such spikes more often than not, introduces visual regressions in places that were not even targeted. Chances are you overwrote your own and your team member’s changes.

Today IBM announced the acquisition of StrongLoop, Inc,  leaders in enterprise development on Node.js and major contributors to Express, LoopBack, and other Node.js tools and frameworks.

Node.js is an incredible tool for rapidly building highly performant and scalable back end systems, and you develop it using a familiar core language that most front-end developers are already accustomed to, JavaScript. This acquisition is positioned to greatly enhance Node.js in the enterprise, and StrongLoop’s offerings will be integrated into IBM Bluemix, IBM MobileFirst, and WebSphere.

23 Lessons From 10 Highly Successful Developers

Five months ago – on Thursday, April 16th – we launched bugtrackers.io as a new platform showing the life of people in web development.

I expected it to be super fun. And of course I expected it to be successful. After all, we showcased the life of famous, successful, and simply extraordinary tech people, like CTOs, developers, web designers or product people.
