Building an App That Makes It Easy to Learn Japanese Characters - Setup Rails And Add ReactJS

A few months ago, I started learning Japanese for fun. I started with Duolingo app, but my smartphone had just died and I had to continue learning from my laptop. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to learn Japanese on the Duolingo web at the time when I was writing this blog post so I tried to find a better way. Google brought me to this simple page on the topic of learning Japanese and I started to read and learn. My practice is always 'learning by doing' so I figured that the best way to learn Japanese characters is to write them down.

This is How Authentic Snapchat Shook Digital Marketing in 2016

At the beginning of the 2016, nobody was taking Snapchat seriously - “another app trying to compete with Facebook”; “sexting app”, “the app for kids” - was how Snapchat was called. Snapchat’s ephemeral nature deceived many that it is, in its nature, just another ephemeral fad.

Present Your 360° Panorama Images With JavaScript

Nowadays, 360° panorama images are everywhere. To make a panorama image, one would think you need a good equipment and great photography skills. Well...Wrong! The only thing you need is some experience in coding with JavaScript. Today, I will play with two libraries that present images as 360° panorama views and test two libraries, first is Panorama Viewer by Pete R. which is the simplest I could find and Three.js which is most complex one I could find. Both are free and easy to start with.

Being More Effective in Rails with Services

Have you ever been stuck debugging a piece of code for hours, only to realize you were looking in the wrong place? Have you ever needed to take more than minutes to figure out why is something acting as it is? Do you remember how it feels to go back and work on a 2-year old application with the features you don't remember? Sounds like you need a new approach in developing Rails applications - outside the convention, but still inside Ruby and Rails. Take a look at the old new layer of abstraction that isn't used in Rails apps by default and learn how to be better at what you're already good at.

How to Chat - A Simple Guide for Rails 4

One of the world's fastest growing web frameworks just celebrated its 10th anniversary. Rails 5 was released, and although it is still in beta, many developers and companies migrated to the new version and started using the awesome features it provides out of the box. The new big thing has got to be the ActionCable framework that automagically enables us the use of WebSockets, which makes implementing live features like chats, notifications and other real-time modules extremely simple. But, how does one achieve the same goal without ActionCable and Rails 5? Roll up your sleeves and let's start coding :)

Experimenting With Indexes - How Important Are They?

There is a time in the project lifecycle when everything is working fine, but the stress test gives really bad results, especially on the web pages where a query traverses through a jungle of rows in the database. What should you do then? The majority of blog posts, articles and forums suggest to add an index on a column in the table, but the theory behind adding indexes goes much deeper. Through this blog post, I'll explain what to do and what not to do in different scenarios. Have you ever wondered how much a well-placed index speeds up your queries?

Learn How to Win from 5 Amazing Examples of Gamification

Does anybody remember Cracker Jack, caramel-coated popcorn and peanuts (ooh yess) snack? It is well known for being packaged with a prize of trivial value inside the box. If you're not from America, there's probably a similar snack/cereal brand that does the same, wherever you are. This is one of the first examples of product gamification, but things got much more sophisticated since then.
