  1. How to debug Django web apps using chrome developer tools and Django Debug Panel

    Django is a great framework for developing fast web applications with python, and it can certainly save you a ton of time if you are using python.  It's one of my favorite frameworks that is around right now, and I think they do best at describing why right on their website. "Django, the web framework for perfectionists with deadlines"It's the framework that I choose if I need something up and running, yesterday, but I still want it to be something I would not be embarrassed that I'm the...

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of tech and computer occupations is expected to grow 12% by 2024, greater than the average for all other occupations.

  4. Microsoft Edge Extensions

    One of the most requested features for Microsoft Edge is extensions – and for good reason!Many of us take for granted being able to use browser based plugins such as LastPass’s password manager or extensions for existing applications such as EverNote, OneNote & Skype. One of the first things I noticed when playing with Edge was the lack of a password manager which made everyday use very hard.The omission of extensions in a browser has the potential to severely impact uptake from every day users...
  5. Http Patterns: Progress

    A progress resource is usually a temporary resource that is created automatically by the server to provide status on some long running process that has been initiated by a client. It is used to provide feedback to an end user and point to the results of an operation once it has completed.HTTP is a client/server request and response protocol. It does not provide for server initiated communications. If a client makes a request to a server that is likely to take a long time, e.g. 5 seconds or longer,...
  6. HTTP Patterns : Factory

    A factory resource is one that is used to create other resources.Sometimes it is difficult to create a complete resource representation on the client without some involvement from the server. It may be that the server is responsible for creating a unique identifier for the new resource, so a PUT request is not possible. Or other attributes of the resource may be dependent on existing server state. For example, creating a order resource where the order quantity may be adjusted based on in-stock quantity.
  7. HTTP Patterns : Bouncer

    A resource designed to accept a request body containing complex query parameters and redirect to a new location to enable the results of complex and expensive queries to be cached.There are practical limitations to the length of a URL on the Web. In order to send complex queries it is sometimes necessary to use a POST method and use the request body to describe the query parameters. However, a POST method cannot return a cached response. If the complex queries take a non-trivial amount of time...
  8. HTTP Patterns : Discovery

    This type of resource is used to provide a client with the information it needs to be able to access other resources. This removes the need for a client to hardcode resource URLs which include information such as the protocol scheme, host, path and query string.The primary problem addressed by a discovery resource is allowing API developers to change various elements of their API without having to notify client developers of the change and potentially force those customers to redeploy their application.
  9. HTTP Patterns: Miniput

    A resource designed to enable doing a partial update to another resource.It is frequently desirable to allow a client to update a subset of information contained in a resource. The HTTP specification does not allow the PUT method to perform partial updates to a resource. The PATCH method can be used to make an incremental changes to a resource, but it requires a specially formatted patch format payload like JSON-Patch or JSON-Merge-Patch. Also, PATCH is not guaranteed to be idempotent.Creating "child"...
  10. Two Strategies for Crossing Origins with Performance in Mind

    The web's same-origin policy is one of the cornerstone mechanisms upon which web security is built. It restricts the way that resources can be shared between web applications that have differing protocols, hosts or ports.A few years ago, the Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (aka CORS) specification extended the policy to enable various scenarios that were previously restricted. While the new scenarios are certainly useful, they introduce new considerations for the performance minded. The remainder of...
