Putting our heads together.
Because in the real world, things work connected
Most of the problems we face are real world abstractions, and it happens to be that in the real world, things work connected. This is why we should consider using graph databases instead of the classic relational model. We’ll see how it impacts performance, visualization, structures, simple querying, and transactions.
Introducing Docker’s features through a real life example
We too often had to set up the context to deploy an application, and then replicate this into another server. That was until Docker’s magic came to the rescue! This is an introduction to some of Docker’s features applied to a real-life scenario: how to install two Apache Web Servers using different source folders.
Using Angular UI router
Angular-ui-router is a powerful tool to reduce complexity when dealing with application states. Here is an example of how to exploit it efficiently by defining hierarchies and multiple views. Snippets included! We recommend giving this interesting feature a try.
Tips and tools to work efficiently with the grid system
Ease the development of responsive websites using Twitter Bootstrap grids correctly. If you use Twitter Bootstrap sass or less version, then you can take advantage of the mixins. Using this approach you can create more semantic css classes and make grids easier to maintain. We also give you a tool to debug your grids!
Using Linux native tools to manage application deployment and proper running
Before we started using Docker for all our NodeJS enterprise applications in production, we had crafted our own way to deploy, distribute, manage and maintain them. We wanted to have a simple standard deployment process for NodeJS applications on Debian / Ubuntu Enterprise servers and we explain it here.
Tips to use the plugin or develop a custom index management solution
Compare the ElasticSearch grails’ plugin with a custom solution. And remember, ElasticSearch is schema-free so indexing is almost a piece of cake.
