Thanks to HTML5, more and more of an applications’ logic is transferred from server-side to client-side. This requires front-end developers to focus more on security. In this article I will show you how to make your apps more secure. I will focus on techniques that you may not have heard about, instead of just telling you that you have to escape HTML data entered in by users.
3D graphics in the browser have been a hot topic ever since it was first introduced. But if you were to create your apps using plain WebGL, it would take ages. This is exactly why some really useful libraries have recently came about. Three.js is one of the most popular, and in this series I will show you how best to use it in order to create stunning 3D experiences for your users.
So you’ve just built a fancy web application and you’re planning to put it online. This can be done in many ways. In this article, we’ll cover one approach to deploy your backend system to your production server. We’ll go through the following steps through the example of a Laravel application, but this can be applied to any other language or technology.
The Repository Design Pattern, defined by Eric Evens in his Domain Driven Design book, is one of the most useful and most widely applicable design patterns ever invented. Any application has to work with persistence and with some kind of list of items. These can be users, products, networks, disks, or whatever your application is about. If you have a blog for example, you have to deal with lists of blog posts and lists of comments. The problem that all of these list management logics have in common is how to connect business logic, factories and persistence.
Editor’s Note: The Ember.js team has shifted to an expedited release schedule and as of this publication date are on version 1.2.0. This tutorial was written pre-v1.0 but many of the concepts are still applicable. We do our best to commission timely content and these situations happen from time-to-time. We’ll work to update this in the future.
Since its introduction, 3D graphics in the browser has been a popular topic. But if you were to create your apps using plain old WebGL it would take a very long. But now we have some pretty useful libraries that we can take advantage of, like Three.js. So in this series I will show you how to create stunning 3D experiences for the browser.
It's been a long time since I last coded on the server-side. In fact, if you've read some of my tutorials, you may have noticed that I use ColdFusion as my application server. While ColdFusion still works great, it definitely doesn't have the panache and coolness of newer server-side technologies like Ruby on Rails. Wanting to be a bit more modern, I've decided to jump on the Ruby on Rails train. Both Ruby and the Rails framework are proven technologies that are stable and widely embraced so I think it's a great direction to head to in my server-side renaissance.
