It's been a pretty busy week, what with security vulnerabilities among other things. Here's a few links (including a few on security vulnerabilities,) for your weekend reading.

Cloud

Client/mobile

Wearable

Node.js

  • Scaling Node.js applications: A discussion of ways you can scale a Node.js app. Or you can just find a cloud provider that does all that for you.

  • Express 4: The new version is out, some changes, and some things to pay attention to when migrating.

  • npm and Heartbleed: npm doesn't appear to have been compromised, but are regenerating SSL keys anyway

  • Is Node.js affected by Heartbleed?: Short answer is no for recent versions. Long answer is "are you using other stuff that might be?"

PHP

Ruby

  • Rails 4.1.0: Some of the new things in 4.1.0.

  • Opal: Ruby in your browser.

Misc.

Enjoy!
