What is Clojure? Functional Programming for the Java Ecosystem

Most programming languages are built on procedural programming, but there is this niche of dialects built for “functional programming,” where code classes are dynamically created based on the rules in the functions you write. If you could put languages on a scale of most procedural to most functional, you’d find Clojure sitting at the edge of the latter. What is Clojure? Who uses Clojure? What’s the best Clojure use case?

7 Features to Know before Jumping Back into .NET

Software development gets complex if you want your applications to target multiple operating systems, including but not limited to Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, iOS, HoloLens, desktop apps, and web apps. Enter the robust and feature-rich.NET platform to write applications rapidly for use across multiple systems. It also contains many libraries that allow developers to reuse common functionalities. It isn’t itself a language, though many describe it that way.

Monitoring to Debugging: 7 Thundra Features to Improve Development

While it may seem like cloud-native tools are limitless, monitoring and debugging in a cloud environment is still a challenge. Users often have to combine tools to set up a working environment for monitoring and debugging, and these tools don’t always work well together. Thundra was developed with the understanding that monitoring a system from a single pane is critical for efficient and effective debugging.

Why Python 2.7 Will Never Die

Python is a programming language originally developed in the late 1980s. Since then, it has seen continuous growth and remains one of the most popular programming languages, especially in data science. Many programmers learn Python as their first language, and it has a wide range of uses. Its second iteration, Python 2.0, landed in 2000, after extensive development throughout the 90s.

Debugging Your APIs with Postman and Moesif

Debugging APIs can be a challenge for any developer dealing with RESTful APIs. Trying to create an exact API request, especially for highly complex requests with large API request bodies and multiple headers, is essential but also tough to do. By using a tool like Postman to create a request for debugging purposes and as an API client, you can easily replay an API request with the exact configuration of the original request.

Level Up Your Serverless Debug Experience

The concept of someone else being responsible for your code is a huge relief. As a developer, having someone else handle the burden of managing the entire infrastructure that runs my code gives me more time to deal with the actual development. Serverless technology benefits more than just the sole developer. It reduces cost by automatically adjusting resource allocation, abstracts both network and server management, saves complexity, and improves the overall application performance.

Debugging a Node js Express API in VS Code Debugger

When we create software, we rarely do it without errors. API creation isn’t exempt from this fact, so sooner or later we’ll need to debug it. In JavaScript, the first stop for a debugging task is often logging to the console, but using a debugger can give us a more integrated experience. Node js is a cross platform and open source JavaScript runtime environment that allows the JavaScript to be run on the server-side.

Comparing Frameworks for Node.js Serverless Apps

Cloud deployments have gotten more complicated over the years. That’s on them, but it’s not necessarily to a fault – there’s just so much more you can do now than in the past. That blossoming in capabilities really owes itself to each new service getting easier over time. AWS, Google, and Azure started offering to relieve the burden of on-premises computing infrastructure.
