JavaScript Design Patterns Introduction

JavaScript Design Patterns Introduction

In the first part of this book, we will explore the history and importance of design patterns which can really be applied to any programming language. If you’re already sold on or are familiar with this history, feel free to skip to the chapter „What is a Pattern?“ to continue reading.

Design patterns can be traced back to the early work of an architect named Christopher Alexander. He would often write publications about his experience in solving design issues and how they related to buildings and towns. One day, it occurred to Alexander that when used time and time again, certain design constructs lead to a desired optimal effect.

Getting Started with NodeJS: Creating a Simple HTTP Server

Getting Started with NodeJS: Creating a Simple HTTP Server

Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices. This simple web server written in Node responds with “Hello World” for every request. To run the server, put the code into a file example.js and execute it with the node program from the command line.

The Project „LUDIC“

The idea was to create a surreal world based on simple geometric light shapes that seem misplaced, but somehow blend with its surrounding at the same time.

Shapes that emphasize the mood of its surrounding in the most simple way. By installing electroluminescent light shapes and wires in untouched landscapes, a single lightsource tells a surreal story of magic and loneliness in a surreal and intense way. Every environment has its own light installation. The intention was to summarize all installations in a cinematographic way to create a touching short film.

Getting Started with Frontend: Cascade Style Sheets & HTML5

A lot of mobile-minded talented folks across the globe produce great work, but yet sometimes you still hear many of them complain about their relationships with their clients. They often mention feeling isolated and not truly understanding what the client really needed.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the presentation semantics (the look and formatting) of a document written in a markup language. Its most common application is to style web pages written in HTML and XHTML, but the language can also be applied to any kind of XML document, including plain XML, SVG and XUL.

Responsive & Mobile Design

Responsive & Mobile Design

RWD allows easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors). A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images,and CSS3 media queries, an extension of the @media rule.

Responsive web design is becoming more important as the amount of mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of total internet traffic. This trend is so prevalent that Google has begun to boost the ratings of sites that are mobile friendly if the search was made from a mobile device. This has the net effect of penalizing sites that are not mobile friendly.

Digital photography is a form of photography that uses cameras containing arrays of electronic photodetectors to capture images focused by a lens, as opposed to an exposure on photographic film. The captured images are digitized and stored as a computer file ready for further digital processing, viewing, digital publishing or printing.

Until the advent of such technology, photographs were made by exposing light sensitive photographic film, and used chemical photographic processing to develop and stabilize the image. By contrast, digital photographs can be displayed, printed, stored, manipulated, transmitted, and archived using digital and computer techniques, without chemical processing.

Faster Response Time with Reverse Proxy Cache

These resources are then returned to the client as though they originated from the server itself (or servers themselves). While a forward proxy acts as an intermediary for its (usually nearby) associated clients and returns to them resources accessible on the Internet, a reverse proxy acts as an intermediary for its (usually nearby) associated servers and only returns resources provided by those associated servers.
