Is WebAssembly faster than JavaScript?
Most programs running on web sites are written in JavaScript. There are still a few Java applets and other plugins hanging around, but they are considered obsolete at this point. It is far easier to find JavaScript front-end developers in almost any industry, except maybe gaming. I think it is almost surely going to be more labor intensive to program web applications using WebAssembly.

Finally, a React Refactoring Tool - Introducing Glean
React is the predominant framework today for web and mobile UI development, and it’s no surprise it is widely used by Wix Engineering. However, when it came to large-scale refactoring projects, there were no proper tools that could help with the process, and developers got used to a lot of keyboard activity with loads of ctrl+C and ctrl+V. Manual refactoring of React code was, therefore, quite time consuming and somewhat tedious, as well as error-prone when done on a massive scale. As JS is dynamic, refactoring automation could be quite a challenge to implement and that could explain the little support it has in common IDEs.

Let the Framework do its job
One of the core changes Ionic is making is moving from custom build tooling to using the official tooling for each Framework we support.

Applying Customer Feedback: How NLP & Deep Learning Improve Uber’s Maps
To address the problem of large-scale ticket analysis, we built a natural language processing (NLP) platform that looks for map data-related issues in the text of tickets. This platform can then specify which specific type of map data triggered the ticket, so that the appropriate team within our maps organization can assess the issue and determine a solution.

Why Netflix Rolled Its Own Node.js Functions-as-a-Service Runtime
Engineers love the “no-ops” aspect of FaaS, which makes it possible to simply upload modular chunks of functionality onto the cloud provider of your choice and then execute them as isolated, reliable, and low latency production services. Enterprises love that their devs can deploy code to production faster than ever before. Netflix, a company respected for being an early and extremely effective adopter of cloud native tech, happily embraced FaaS to keep the films flowing smoothly to their 130 million customers streaming 140 million hours of video each day.

How to write narrative documentation
In fact, writing good documentation is an excellent way to ensure that you really understand the problem space you’re in, and to throw light into corners of your software where defects might lurk. Do not underestimate the power of this effect! Often enough to matter, it will save you from serious embarrassment.


gRPC-Web is going GA
gRPC-Web enables you to define the service “contract” between client web applications and backend gRPC servers using .proto definitions and auto-generate client JavaScript (you can choose between Closure compiler JavaScript or the more widely used CommonJS). What you get to leave out of the development process: creating custom JSON serialization and deserialization logic, wrangling HTTP status codes (which can vary across REST APIs), content type negotiation, etc.

What does Stack Overflow want to be when it grows up?
I sometimes get asked by regular people in the actual real world what it is that I do for a living, and here’s my 15 second answer: We built a sort of Wikipedia website for computer programmers to post questions and answers. It’s called Stack Overflow. As of last month, it’s been 10 years since Joel Spolsky and I started Stack Overflow. I currently do other stuff now, and I have since 2012, but if I will be known for anything when I’m dead, clearly it is going to be good old Stack Overflow. Thus, what I’d like to do right now is peer into that glorious abyss for a bit and introspect about the challenges I see facing Stack Overflow for the next 10 years.
