Over the past several months I’ve been pretty entangled in a tech philosophy question that I’m positive you will either 1) be involved in sometime in your career or 2) have already been involved in sometime in the past.
The simple version of this question is really just three words “all-in-one versus best-of-breed”
Do hyphenated words count as one word? Maybe that was a stretch, but it sounded way better than “just 7 words”.
When you think of Apple, you probably envision sleek iPhones, powerful Macs, Apple TVs, and the harmonious integration of all these devices. As a self-proclaimed Apple enthusiast, I have immersed myself in this ecosystem, exploring the fascinating world the tech giant has crafted for its users. However, this article is not about Apple’s cutting-edge devices; it’s about a different kind of apple—the one that represents apps, the backbone of the Apple experience.
So, let me ask you a question. When was the last time you learned something completely new? I’m interested to know. Leave a comment on the video link below and share the last time you learned something new and what it was.
Now, this site is focused on tech and development, so naturally, I’m talking about things like a new programming language, a new framework, a new platform, a new pattern, whatever it may be.
For those of you who are in the earlier stages of your career or maybe aren’t working in tech yet, I bet that you have a goal in mind. The goal is to work for a “tech” company.
But I’m not writing this just to see if my assumptions are correct.
I don’t want to discourage you if your goal is go work for a big tech company like one of the FAANG companies.
If you’re new to coding or just really like to find cool software on the web, you’ve probably come across search results for stuff on GitHub. Without going too deep into the topic, GitHub is a website where developers can share their code with the world as well as keep track of the history of their projects.
And since GitHub is completely free to join at the individual level, it’s kinda become the de facto location for everyone to house the code for their software projects.
Be Obsessed with developer efficiency You know what developers like to do? Write code. Do you know what business like their developers doing? Writing code. Do you know what both businesses and developers absolutely hate? Inefficiency!
Was that too obvious? Well, you might think so at the surface, but efficiency is a deep rabbit hole and can be defined in a ton of different ways in the context of development.
What is 'The Edge'? “The Edge” is all the rage these days, and it kinda seems like every tech company out there is trying to find a way to tell their consumers that they are on the bandwagon of “edge computing”.
As with most of these buzzword tech inventions, the name doesn’t really matter. What matters more is the concept behind it. Once you understand what they mean you may even find that you are using “the edge” or “the fog” (I’ll get into this later) in your day-to-day life, and it’s really not that big of a deal.
I am a software developer. I write code for a living. You should know this before reading any further.
Ok, with that out of the way I’d like to have a pretty serious talk about no-code/low-code solutions and how I think they actually waste more time than what they save. They may even cause more bugs than what they prevent.
OK, But First, What is No-Code / Low-code? low-code is like building blocks Before I begin my rant, err - findings, maybe I should start with a brief definition of what the heck I’m talking about.
Hey there and welcome back. I hope you’re having an excellent day.
Today I’m going to show you how to expand the capabilities of a Kubernetes cluster by adding shared storage. For the demo, I’ll be upgrading my home cluster by connecting a Synology NAS as an NFS server that can serve read-write-many persistent volumes.
But before I get into the demo, it’s probably a good idea to explain why you would want to do this and the downsides of sticking with the default storage that comes with a Kubernetes cluster.
