I set out a while ago to try to interview various community leaders for their take on WebAssembly. If you’re unfamiliar with WebAssembly, here’s a definition for you. WebAssembly is a binary instruction format for a stack-based virtual machine webassembly.org That’s a lot to try to parse, right?! I was able to get an interview with Steve Sanderson, which I’m going to share in this post.

Intro I love working with the Angular HttpClient. It is easy to use and was designed to work with RxJS. It is vastly different from the AngularJS implementation, if you’re curious I wrote about these differences here. However, there is one common issue that developers fall victim to. The issue really relates to TypeScript generics. I have also written about generics in TypeScript here. But in this post, we will reveal how the issue can easily be avoided.

Inspiration I recently returned from Charleston, South Carolina – where I spoke at SyntaxCon. The event was very professionally organized and gave me inspiration for Cream City Code. In the main hall they had a HALO by Simple Booth. It serves as a photo booth with a conference specific backdrop – which is perfect for sharing the conference experience. I looked into purchasing one but was encouraged to simply write my own… so I did and this blog will detail that process.

Intro I am returning home from a long trip in Serbia for IT Konekt. This was literally a trip of a lifetime and I could not be more grateful for such an amazing opportunity. Serbia has such an incredible culture and powerful history. I have been overwhelmed by the care and attention to detail from the organizers of IT Konekt. This was my first time ever leaving the United States of America and I didn’t know what to expect.

Intro As a developer, I can say that developers are lazy - at least I know and acknowledge that I am. If I’m tasked with something even the slightest bit repetitious I’ll script it out, or find a way to automate it. Likewise, if I fall into a habit of forgetting something important - I’ll figure out a way to not forget. Especially when it comes to securing an application.
