The TypeScript Tax - A Cost vs Benefit Analysis
As TypeScript stands, I would definitely use it again in small open-source libraries, primarily to make life easier for other TypeScript users. But I will not use the current version of TypeScript in my next large scale application, because the larger the project is, the more the costs of using TypeScript compound.

The Great Divide
Two front-end developers are sitting at a bar. They have nothing to talk about. Let’s say there is a divide happening in front-end development. I feel it, but it’s not just in my bones. Based on an awful lot of written developer sentiment, interviews Dave Rupert and I have done on ShopTalk, and in-person discussion, it’s, as they say… a thing. The divide is between people who self-identify as a (or have the job title of) front-end developer, yet have divergent skill sets.

Yarn’s Future - v2 and beyond
This thread aims to expose our roadmap for the next major Yarn release, and let you know about significant changes that we plan to make regarding Yarn’s design. The codename for these changes is Berry - that’s how we’ll refer to it during the next few months.

Introducing Ionic 4: Ionic for Everyone
Ionic 4 represents the culmination of more than two years of research and hard work transforming Ionic from “mobile for Angular” into a powerful UI Design System and app framework for every web developer in the world. There are so many things to talk about with this release, but first I’d like to talk about how we got here.

在过去的一年里,我是如何使用 Flutter 的呢?我做了以下这些事情:使用 Flutter 重写一款已经发布到 App Store 的 iOS 应用程序;开发了一个 Flutter 免费速成课程,录制 5 个多小时的教学视频内容;使用 Flutter 开发一些小型尚未发布的应用程序。以下是在过去一年中,我通过使用 Flutter 学到的东西。

HTML5 Input Types: Where Are They Now?
HTML5 introduced thirteen new types of form input, adding significantly to the number of different fields web designers and developers could add to our forms. These new types all require browsers to support them, and take-up has been slower than some of us would have liked. What is the state of those field types in 2019? Which can we use, and which should still be avoided?

React 16.6.0 Goodies
We’re going to cover what I consider the best of those new goodies with examples of how we can put them to use in our work. 另附:Understanding Fragments in ReactWhy Isn’t X a Hook?.

Why I don’t use React-Router
React-Router is the most popular routing solution out there for React applications — so much so, that a lot of developers think of it as the ‘Official Routing Solution’ for React. While I’m sure React-Router works quite well for a lot of people, I’ve always disliked working with React-Router. I’ll try to summarize my reasons in this article.

We’re making Tumblr more accessible!
If you’re an avid user of Tumblr on mobile web, then you might’ve noticed some improvements we made. Bigger font sizes and higher contrast text? Your screen reader actually reads what you hope it would? You’ve guessed it, we’re making Tumblr ✨accessible✨.

storytelling with data - new year, new tools!
We’re excited to see the variety of tools exemplified here. These range from the familiar go-to’s (Tableau, Excel, PowerBI) and also some that may be less widely known throughout the broader community (Datawrapper, Flourish, RAWGraphs). Interested in seeing a specific tool? We’ve organized the submissions alphabetically by tool and encourage you to scroll through the entire post to familiarize yourself with the wide array available for visualizing data.

What is tree shaking and how does it work?
Tree shaking is a method of optimising our code bundles by eliminating any code from the final file that isn’t actually being used.

Node.js multithreading: What are Worker Threads and why do they matter?
What exactly is this new worker thread module and why do we need it? In this post, we will talk about the historical reasons concurrency is implemented in JavaScript and Node.js, the problems we might find, current solutions and the future of parallel processing with worker threads. 另附:Node.js: The Road to Workers.

Introducing The Component-Based API
In the world of APIs, GraphQL has lately overshadowed REST due to its ability to query and retrieve all required data in a single request. In this article, I will describe a different type of API, based around components, which takes a step further the amount of data it can fetch from a single request.

Working with GraphQL using Vanilla JS
Writing a light GraphQL client can be made simpler using vanilla JavaScript features like fetch, promises and string templates. Some example scenarios would be building a thin client with minimal dependencies or building out a prototype solution. Let’s build a simple form that can communicate with a GraphQL API and search titles of books. We will only use HTML5, CSS3 and ES6 JavaScript.

Developing Microservices with Behavior Driven Development and Interface Oriented Design
With Behavior Driven Development (BDD), a service’s functionality is described by tests that concentrate on the operations to be performed rather than the syntax of these operations such as JSON or XML. Interface Oriented Design (IOD) includes other contractual obligations of a microservice, such as limitations on resource usage, throughput, and error reporting. Together BDD and IOD help describe a service’s behavior so that consumers can easily understand and rely upon it.

Programming paradigms for dummies: what every programmer should know
Programming paradigms are approaches based on a mathematical theory or particular set of principles, each paradigm supporting a set of concepts. Van Roy is a believer in multi-paradigm languages: solving a programming problem requires choosing the right concepts, and many problems require different sets of concepts for different parts.

Our Software Dependency Problem
Software dependencies carry with them serious risks that are too often overlooked. The shift to easy, fine-grained software reuse has happened so quickly that we do not yet understand the best practices for choosing and using dependencies effectively, or even for deciding when they are appropriate and when not. My purpose in writing this article is to raise awareness of the risks and encourage more investigation of solutions.

The scalable fabric behind our growing data center network
Dropbox needs its underlying network infrastructure to be reliable, high-performing, cost-effective, and truly scalable. In previous posts we described how the edge network was designed to improve user performance, and how the supporting multi-terabit backbone network spans continents to interconnect edge PoPs and multiple data centers. In this post we describe how we evolved the Dropbox data center network from the legacy chassis based four-post architecture to a scalable multi-tier, quad-plane fabric.

Managing Distributed Tasks with Helix Task Framework
Stateless tasks are widely used for serving large-scale data processing systems. Lots of requests were made by systems, which rely on Apache Helix, for a stateless task management feature to be added to Apache Helix. Recently, our team decided to explore new ways to manage stateless tasks, in addition to our ongoing work to support Helix. The result of these efforts is Helix Task Framework, an engine that powers distributed execution of stateless tasks. In this post, we’ll introduce Helix Task Framework, which is available in Helix as an advanced feature.

HTTP/3: From root to tip
In this blog post we’ll explore the history behind some of HTTP/3’s previous names and present the motivation behind the most recent name change. We’ll go back to the early days of HTTP and touch on all the good work that has happened along the way.

Network protocols for anyone who knows a programming language
The network stack does several seemingly-impossible things. It does reliable transmission over our unreliable networks, usually without any detectable hiccups. It adapts smoothly to network congestion. It provides addressing to billions of active nodes. It routes packets around damaged network infrastructure, reassembling them in the correct order on the other side even if they arrived out of order. It accommodates esoteric analog hardware needs, like balancing the charge on the two ends of an Ethernet cable. This all works so well that users never hear of it, and even most programmers don’t know how it works.

The Future Will Be Documented
MongoDB was born out of frustration from using relational databases not designed for today’s modern applications. After 40 years of no real alternatives, we pioneered a new way to work with data – the MongoDB document model and the associated query language.

It’s Time to Move on from Two Phase Commit
In this post, we will first describe 2PC: how it works and what problems it solves. Then, we will show some major issues with 2PC and how modern systems attempt to get around these issues. Unfortunately, these attempted solutions cause other problems to emerge. In the end, I will make the case that the next generation of distributed systems should avoid 2PC, and how this is possible.

The Internals of PostgreSQL
In this document, the internals of PostgreSQL for database administrators and system developers are described. PostgreSQL is an open source multi-purpose relational database system which is widely used throughout the world. It is one huge system with the integrated subsystems, each of which has a particular complex feature and works with each other cooperatively. Although understanding of the internal mechanism is crucial for both administration and integration using PostgreSQL, its hugeness and complexity prevent it. The main purposes of this document are to explain how each subsystem works, and to provide the whole picture of PostgreSQL.

Twitter migrates data to Google Cloud to keep the world tweeting
To determine if a migration of this scale would even be possible, Twitter had a rigorous cloud evaluation process. After months of in-depth analysis, Twitter engineers found Google Cloud to be the best fit for Twitter’s needs because it provided flexibility in storage and compute scaling in both dimensions independently while also providing access to a high-speed network.

AMD Open Source Driver for Vulkan
The AMD Open Source Driver for Vulkan® is an open-source Vulkan driver for Radeon™ graphics adapters on Linux®. It is built on top of AMD’s Platform Abstraction Library (PAL), a shared component that is designed to encapsulate certain hardware and OS-specific programming details for many of AMD’s 3D and compute drivers. Leveraging PAL can help provide a consistent experience across platforms, including support for recently released GPUs and compatibility with AMD developer tools.

Remote Code Execution in apt/apt-get
I found a vulnerability in apt that allows a network man-in-the-middle (or a malicious package mirror) to execute arbitrary code as root on a machine installing any package. The bug has been fixed in the latest versions of apt. If you’re worried about being exploited during the update process, you can protect yourself by disabling HTTP redirects while you update.

RE:DOM is a tiny (2 KB) UI library by Juha Lindstedt and contributors, which adds some useful helpers to create DOM elements and keeping them in sync with the data. Because RE:DOM is so close to the metal and doesn’t use virtual dom, it’s actually faster and uses less memory than almost all virtual dom based libraries, including React.

Hotkey Behavior
Trigger a action on element when keyboard hotkey is pressed. Automatically binds hotkeys to any link with a data-hotkey attribute set. Multiple hotkeys are separated by a ,. Key combinations are separated by a +, and key sequences are separated by a space.

Full duplex messaging between web browsers and servers**

PouchDB is an open-source JavaScript database inspired by Apache CouchDB that is designed to run well within the browser. PouchDB was created to help web developers build applications that work as well offline as they do online. It enables applications to store data locally while offline, then synchronize it with CouchDB and compatible servers when the application is back online, keeping the user’s data in sync no matter where they next login.

Ant Design 情感化设计

Rethinking UX for AI-driven Alerting
I’ve been designing monitoring tools for almost 10 years now, and in that time a lot has changed. The infrastructure we build software on, for example, has been transformed multiple times—moving first from physical hosts to VMs in the cloud, then from VMs to containers, and now from containers to serverless and cloud service-based infrastructure. With the introduction of advanced statistical methods into alerting I think we’re seeing the first major transformation in alerting UX, so I want to unpack it and talk about where things are going.
