Larry Franks and Brian Swan on Open Source and Device Development in the Cloud
Woops, forgot to post this last Friday. Ah well, some links to start the week with then.
Cloud Design Patterns: A new release from the Microsoft Patterns & Practices group that provides guidance and patterns for the cloud.
Bolts: A new collection of low level libraries for mobile development from the folks at Parse. Looks like you don't need Parse for them, just download and use in your own projects.
Building a parallax scrolling game with Pixi.js - part 1: Part's 2, 3, and 4 are also available.
D3.js: D3's been out a while, but I hadn't had to seriously use it in any projects until this week. Wow, it is awesome!
Writing your first Sweet.js macro: First in a new series on using Sweet.js.
Working with Koa and Generators: Short intro to Koa, generators, and using Koa to serve up an API.
Building desktop apps with Node.js and web technologies: Brief intro and links to building desktop apps using node-webkit.
How to leverage SQL Server with Node.js using Edge.js: A walk through of using Edge.js to talk to SQL Server. Pretty sure this is a Windows platform only thing though.
Creating Brackets extensions: How to create extensions for Brackets.io.
Examples of the Marvel API: Yes, Marvel Comics has an API. And there was much rejoicing by comic book fans (who are also developers.)
Sensational headlines and bad curators: Yeah, I hit this every week. Usually it goes like "Read about some neat new technology, after we throw a popup in your face, and show a bunch of ads, and then make you hunt the link to the original article." Ugh.
HTTP/2 closing on final design: Some updates on the HTTP/2 standard.
