Analyze your code!
#tech

Analyze your code!

As projects grow in size and complexity, it can be easy to get lost in your own code base. Does this function return X, or Y. Can it return null? Does the doc block still match the function? Is this function even used anymore? We will use static analysis to answer these questions, and identify potential problems in our code. We will dive into what static analysis is, and a few of the tools that are available.

TypeScript: Our approach to developing JavaScript applications

At Ibuildings, when we do JavaScript/NodeJs development, we actually use TypeScript. TypeScript is an open-source programming language created and maintained by Microsoft. TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript which means that any JavaScript file is valid TypeScript. But why do we use TypeScript? With this post I want to share our approach to developing JavaScript applications.

What does serverless computing mean for your applications?

What does serverless computing mean for your applications?

In our online age, the time of serverless computing has also come in recent years. This offers great advantages for working in the cloud. Especially if the software for your organisation is designed and developed for this purpose. For new applications, the development of cloud native software should certainly also be a consideration. I would be happy to explain why.

Drupal + React “progressively”

Drupal + React “progressively”

A while ago I wrote about Decoupled, Headless and traditional CMS architecture. The post is about choosing which one is right for you. I wrote about the different architecture characteristics and the consequences it has. Knowing the differences will help you pick the right one for you. Based on that post you could think that you have to choose between Decoupled or Headless. But maybe there is more to choose from.

Updating business software also a conscious choice for custom software

Updating business software also a conscious choice for custom software

No matter what kind of business software you’re working with, updating to keep up to date is always necessary. Also with custom software. Although you can make choices in your update and upgrade policy. But do this consciously, because the consequences vary greatly. And you notice that in the extent to which business software supports your users and business. And it also strongly determines how securely your organization works. Have you already made a choice?

Money doesn't make happiness, but what does?

Money doesn't make happiness, but what does?

Many people think the purpose of a business is to make money. The more money the company makes, the better it goes,' is the thought. Many annual plans are made based on 30% more turnover or 10% more profit. Until a few years ago, we also worked in the same way at Ibuildings. With a larger company with more profit, the rest would be fine on its own. But that’s not how it works, I noticed with myself.
