Web Development

  • Node.js or RoR ?
    by /u/Chibbi94 on August 25, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    Hey guys, I'm currently going through the Odin Project as I want to do a career switch from teacher to web developper. I plan to do freelancing jobs. TOP is great and it offers to curriculum : Rails full stack and Javascript fullstack. ​ Both of these teaches css html and javascript the same, but the first one teaches you ruby and RoR for the backend, while the other one focus on nodejs. I'm not sure which one to pick, i've read online a lot of different opinions about RoR being dead or not, but don't even know if they apply for a freelance developper anyway. ​ So, which one would you advise me to do and why ? Node, RoR, or both ? ​ Thanks for the hindsight ! submitted by /u/Chibbi94 [link] [comments […]

  • How shoudl I go about indexing a large amount of movies efficiently?
    by /u/snoort on August 25, 2019 at 9:44 pm

    So I'm working on a web project which involves a database filled with a large (thousands!) amount of movies, categorized based on genre, plot points, diversity, gore/violence, all sorts of categories. I started making an excel spreadsheet with all the categories I want and a Y/N answer for each category, but I realized that will take waaaay too long and I have too many movies to index. I started looking into MySQL but I don't know if that would be very efficient. I was wondering, what would be the fastest way to do this? Is there some sort of crowd-based public database available, where other people on the internet would be able to help me categorize movies? Or is there some way I could make my list more efficient instead of watching/reading the IMDB for each individual movie and categorizing them? Thanks so much! submitted by /u/snoort [link] [comments […]

Anyone have any recommendations for Canadian server shared hosting? Thanks submitted by /u/LowFiGuy7 [link] [comments […]

  • Vendor Prefixes CSS

  • How to handle a form in JQuery and redirect to another page based on a conditional?
    by /u/Uncryptic0 on August 25, 2019 at 6:20 pm

    Okay so I realized I don't know how to code in normal JavaScript or JQuery. I have a series of inputs (email, size) and a couple radio buttons. How do I get this information after I submit then parse it and make a check to see which page the user should be thrown to next? I've only been using React pretty much this whole time... submitted by /u/Uncryptic0 [link] [comments […]

  • For those who are bad with making user interfaces and CSS, how do you handle them ?
    by /u/gyaani_guy on August 25, 2019 at 5:55 pm

    I am a sole dev in a never ending struggle with making layouts, CSS, and mobile friendly websites. I do manage it, but its not pretty, takes a long time coding and probably is bad from a UX point of view. Any people who are or were in a similar boat ? How do or did you handle it ? Edit: Have using any PHP frameworks / CMS helped ? Any front end tools ? Pinegrow helped me a lil. submitted by /u/gyaani_guy [link] [comments […]

  • My first coding interview
    by /u/PreCodeEU on August 25, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    Hey guys, So tomorrow is the day.. I will have my first ever coding interview tomorrow. At this point I am making an apprenticeship and I'll finish next year in June, it's like an apprenticeship for system administration. Almost all my knowledge is self taught and I am kind of worried that I won't know anything they are asking me. They asked me to present them a project I recently done and I will present a small project, which I am proud of. I like the code quality and anything else but I don't know, if that's enough.. So yeah, my first interview and a lot of worries. submitted by /u/PreCodeEU [link] [comments […]

  • Attack of the Blob-Based Animated Backgrounds in Web Design

  • Open source / minimal widget for email+donation to see download link?
    by /u/aleksfadini on August 25, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    Hello webdevs, What is the smallest, simplest way to implement a web interface that asks for email address and a donation (possibly zero) and in return offers a link to a download? I am building a free educational (non-web) app and I am working to find testers and build a community around it. I hate bloated things, so no wordpress, mysql. Ideally I want a file on my server with a list of the email addresses who have donated, and that’s it (JSON file if possible, or csv or whatever). Open to suggestions. Ideally I would like an open source tool for that, so I can tweak it to my liking. Not sure they exist and I realize some part of it will have to be closed, to operate with PayPal or other closed payment platforms. I looked into stripe, PayPal and donor box and didn’t find anything that clicked immediately. I’m ok with html css and a bit of js, but overall clueless! All suggestions welcome.

  • I did it Reddit - I am now a full time Developer!
    by /u/cinema-tech-on-call on August 25, 2019 at 4:22 pm

    This is just another little success story that I have the privilege to write up after leaning on so many stories just like this throughout the past 3 years. In January, 2016, I decided to put my head down and learn JavaScript. I had some basic knowledge of HTML/CSS and could make a simple page - but the logic was obviously lacking. JS scared me. After my wife became pregnant, the fact that my job as a Cinema Tech wasn't going to go anywhere became more and more of a reality. So I learned JavaScript, I learned SASS. And I built stuff - A LOT of stuff. Stuff that was useless, some stuff was fun. I took Udemy courses, stalked Wes Bos and Scott Tolynski on Twitter to grab their latest courses, listened to podcasts and asked a LOT of questions on Reddit. I made websites for friends and family. I made an Electron app with Vuejs and Net-SNMP. I built stuff for my company that they are actually using and excited about! I'm not going to lie, it was exhausting. I'd be putting 50-60 hours a week towards my actual job and then 30-40 towards code. But I did it! I start in a few weeks as a Jr. QA Engineer, working mostly remote and I am so excited. I can't imagine how much easier it will be to learn this stuff once it is my only job. PS - I just turned 32 and have a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Arts lol. Sorry this is so broken up in random thoughts, I'm just so excited and trying to get his out there for the next guy like me who wants to change career paths mid life. You can do it! submitted by /u/cinema-tech-on-call [link] [comments […]

  • What is the best way to build a "slideshow" website?
    by /u/exc3ssive29 on August 25, 2019 at 4:21 pm

    There is a possibility that I might be developing a new website, which will be like slideshow. The kind where the client wants the pages to slide from left to right or top to bottom. A presentational site, if I say so. They would also like some kind of an admin panel. So far my professional work has been all WordPress with very few small websites with React + Redux. I am curious is it easy to achieve slide transitions with React and also about the admin panel. submitted by /u/exc3ssive29 [link] [comments […]

  • Am I undercharging?
    by /u/Packeselt on August 25, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    I got my foot in the door as a fullstack contractor at a SaaS agency, and started at 30/hr. A month later they upped me to 40/hr, which I didn't expect, but was a nice surprise. Unfortunately since then, I have quite frankly been worked like a dog as 'the rapid protoype' guy while it seems the rest of my dev team has a more relaxed schedule. I have this nudging suspicion that I am the lowest paid contractor on the team by a large margin, and the vp and my pm are using my low rates to build their prototypes on a budget. Should I ask for a raise? Should I leave the contract? I'm still pretty new to this, and overall I really like the people and the team, but I'm getting pretty burned out. I'd hate to sound ungrateful for the work, but at some point not working weekends to meet these two week sprint deadlines every two weeks would be a nice plus. submitted by /u/Packeselt [link] [comments […]

  • The need for a Twitter following?
    by /u/burgerlove on August 25, 2019 at 2:45 pm

    Other than Reddit, which I goof around on anonymously, I don’t have any social media accounts. I feel happier and healthier without them. That said, I know how important having a Twitter following can be as a developer. Especially if you lose your job or launch a product. Does anyone have advice for not being invisible, but also not forcing yourself to be on Twitter? submitted by /u/burgerlove [link] [comments […]

  • Quick Question - Website Analytics Implementation
    by /u/arturostable on August 25, 2019 at 2:41 pm

    Introduction Hello and thank you for your time in advance! Any information/feedback relevant to the implementation of modern website analytics functionality is welcome. ​ Question Is it illegal to use any of the Google Analytics scripts without explicit website visitor consent? ​ Definitions I define "illegal" in reference to a potential violation to the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) law on data protection and privacy. But this is extended to any other major law on this matter. I define "Google Analytics scripts" as the group of (legacy & latest) JavaScript scripts provided by Google for their Google Analytics product. Namely: "gtag.js" (latest), "analytics.js" and "ga.js" (legacy). Primarily, I am referring to the gtag.js script. ​ Question Background I am currently hosting a simple, static site on GitHub pages (i.e. practically zero back-end config access) and my goal is to setup some relatively basic web analytics functionality. Primarily, I would like to know how many visitors the site gets every day and I would like to do so without having to disturb the visitor's experience flow with some cookie/privacy consent pop-up. From there it would be nice to get secondary information about site visitors, such as their general location (country, state, city), IP address, device used, browser, etc. However, I prioritize more highly to be able to offer visitors an experience without having to interact with the cumbersome cookie consent/privacy over the secondary information of interest. I have noticed that there are other developers who use GitHub pages and include the Google Analytics scripts in their sites but without any pop-ups or anything that might clearly request consent from the visitor. So I am wondering if this is an act of negligence on their part or if using the Google Analytics (gtag.js) script is actually perfectly legal and I can too assimilate it in my site without the need for explicit consent from my site visitors. ​ Alternative Inquiries Which tool/service do you use/recommend for basic website traffic analysis? Is there a tool/service you know that fulfill most of these requirements: cookie-less, free, client-sided, open source, easy-to-implement. ​ Research Resources [Difference between analytics.js and gtag.js - Stack Overflow]( [Global site tag/snippet (gtag.js) installation | Google Developers]( [Global site tag/snippet (gtag.js) installation (detailed) | Google Developers]( [Global site tag (gtag.js) cookies configuration | Google Developers]( [Information about IP anonymization - Google Analytics Support Community]( [Adding analytics.js to site | Google Developers]( [Disabling Google Analytics | Google Developers]( [GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) - Wikipedia]( submitted by /u/arturostable [link] [comments […]
