Scrum development is great, it allows iterative development and much faster feedback loops. The concept is nothing new to a lot of people, and the adoption rate has been increasing. But I have yet to work in a team where I think we have achieved the maximum efficiency, in fact, most of the time we are far from it. The concept of Scrum seems easy enough, so why it is so hard to do it right?
The most difficult choice to make when creating a simple web application is not choosing the right framework or colour scheme (for any backend devs out there). Instead, the struggle comes from deciding if a backend is required or necessary. A lot of the time, it is hard to justify setting up a backend service for a simple web application. More times than not, the only thing I really need is one or two simple APIs to bounce some data around. For that, I don't really want to spin up a new EC2 instance on AWS, create a backend, setting up a database and etc.
Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a non-profit organisation that was driven by a community which wishes to make the world wide web a safer place. The latest top 10 document can found here. As you can see it is created in 2013, so many of the issues would have been addressed already by new technologies. In this blog, we will be explaining the top 10 vulnerabilities and how they affect the technology today.
package.json. This file, as the name extension suggests, contains a JSON object about the project. The follow snippet shows a very simple example of what a
package.json file might contain, for more information about what each section means browsenpm will offer a much better explanation. If you have not seen a
package.json file before, it might be best if you do some quick reading before continuing reading.
Keep a clean Inbox is not an easy task for even the most organised people because there are simply too many spams. There is only so many filters you can set up before it gets really annoying and tedious. Here are just some simple, but useful ways to keep a clean Email Inbox.
I normally bounce around between Linux, Mac OS and Windows for different tasks. I mainly use Windows for gaming or consuming media, so there isn't much software installed on my machine. Not too sure when it started, but I have been having this weird issue where Windows doesn't turn off my machine when I click on
Shutdown. It would just
Log me out rather than do a full shutdown. What's even weirder is that
Restart works just fine. I was doing a bit of searching around, I managed to resolve it. But I didn't find any of the instructions that was easy to follow. Hence why I'm creating this post.
In the project I'm working on right now, we needed a way to disable some input fields based on a condition which is pretty common. I ended up writing a directive to reduce the amount of duplicated code and keeping it clean and simple. However, there was one problem, we didn't use the default checkboxes. Instead, we ended up using the icons from fonts-awesome library (Checked Icon, Unchecked Icon).
I struggled with this question for a long time. It is contradictory in a way that using a password manager should make everything more secure, but using a master password introduces a single point of failure. So is it more or less secure? Given the number of accounts I have created over the years, I would say going with a password manager is the better choice and stop repeating same passwords on different sites. This way hackers can only hack into one of your accounts if they hack into a site.
