Vue Composition API vs React Hooks

React Hooks were introduced at React Conf in October of 2018. Hooks solve a variety of problems in React that have encountered over five years of writing and maintaining tens of thousands of components. It was hard to reuse stateful logic between components, if you had a chance to work with React for a while before introducing Hooks, you may be familiar with patterns like render props and higher-order components that try to solve this. Those techniques required you to restructure your components when you use them, which could be tricky and make code harder to follow.Read more

How it all started? - History of React

React is one of the most popular libraries for building composable user interfaces. It helps with creating large web applications that can change data, without reloading the page. React store the state of your application internally, and only re-rendering your content into the browser (the DOM manipulation) when the state changes. The main purpose is to be fast, scalable, and simple. React can be used with a combination of other JavaScript libraries or frameworks, such as Angular JS in MVC.

Oracle JDK vs Open JDK

In this article, we want to discuss the differences between Oracle JDK vs OpenJDK. There has been a lot of confusion lately about Java and its available SDKs (Software Development Kits). To be clear, both are implementations of the same Java specification that passed the TCK (Java Technology Certification Kit) and are owned and maintained by Oracle. The greatest difference is that Oracle JDK is free for development and testing, but you have to pay for it if you use it in production, and OpenJDK is free for any environment. So, are there any crucial differences between them?Read more

What is a cloud?

Cloud computing is a huge trend for businesses and ordinary people. It’s a term used to describe a global network of servers that delivers different services through the Internet. These servers are designed to either store and manage data, run applications like Google Docs, or to deliver content, everyone knows Netflix, right? One might say that cloud will, if not already has, become a standard. With all the talk about ‘the cloud’ these days it’s worth saying that according to some statistics 85-90% percent of businesses use some type of cloud services. Why? Probably because of simplicity, instead of accessing files and data from a local or personal computer, you are accessing them online from any Internet-capable device. With these servers all around the world, you can go global with your application easier. With cloud, you have unlimited computing power and the distance that information has to travel and latency caused by that is not a problem anymore. With cloud, you don’t have to think where the servers are because major players have them on every continent.Read more
