Held every October, National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) is a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and to ensure that all Americans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.Continue reading
In the first part of this series we introduced the basics of JHipster – we scaffolded a basic monolithic Java/Angular application and used JHipster’s command line options to generate some entities, services, and web modules for creating, retrieving, updating and deleting those entities.Continue reading
Putting together and bootstrapping a solid application complete with all the building blocks can be quite an undertaking at the best of times, we have to consider so many things-for example:Continue reading
Back in September we blogged about the GA of Amazon’s Serverless Aurora and how it really simplifies scaling database servers in the cloud – mainly because.. well basically you don’t have to. At AWS re:Invent 2018 last month, Amazon has taken Aurora Serverless to the next level with its ‘Data API’.
As most of us know by now, Serverless computing allows us to build and run applications and services without thinking about servers. Serverless applications don’t require us to provision, scale, and manage any servers.
We can build them for nearly any type of application or backend service, and everything required to run and scale our application with high availability is handled for us. Continue reading
Aside from the obvious convenience and choice that e-commerce has always offered, an often overlooked factor in its success in the US over the years has been the fact that sales tax did not have to be collected by a business if they didn’t have a physical presence in the state that they are selling within.

- performing multiple roundtrips to the server for multiple resources in order to get data for a single page of the UI
- getting the request parameters right
- dealing with api versions – coupling between the client and the responses from the server
- over-fetching of information that is not needed
It’s now easier and cheaper to build pub/sub architectures with AWS.
