Are Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) the future of mobile?

Article note: The thing I like about PWAs is that they’re relatively easy to build and provided the same level is functionality across devices.There are two types of businesses in today’s mobile-first world: businesses that have a mobile app and those that do not. The one thing that these two sides have in common is that both are looking towards progressive web apps (PWAs) and wondering what the impact of this new app experience will be and how it will change the mobile world. Businesses that have already invested in developing a native mobile app are looking at PWAs cautiously. While these new apps represent a new frontier to be explored and leveraged to improve and expand on an existing app experience, they… [Continue Reading]

Yet more River5 michegas

BTW, the River5 discussion continues with Carsten.
He points out that the new method I proposed for adding items to rivers not only is more complex than the current method, and therefore more difficult to maintain, something I totally concur with, it still has a synchronization problem. Copying a pointer and deleting an object can’t be an atomic operation. it’s still possible something will be added to a queue betw the two steps. And that would result in a lost item.
We’re now somewhat in the weeds, possibly, but we all agree it’s better to have an approach that loses zero items, than one that maybe loses one item on (possibly) rare occasions. So I have proposed yet another approach in a comment. This one has the advantage of retaining the current simplicity and hding a bell/whistle that didn’t need to be there in the first place.

Announcing Go Support for AWS Lambda

This post courtesy of Paul Maddox, Specialist Solutions Architect (Developer Technologies).
Today, we’re excited to announce Go as a supported language for AWS Lambda.
As someone who’s done their fair share of Go development (recent projects include AWS SAM Local and GoFormation), this is a release I’ve been looking forward to for a while. I’m going to take this opportunity to walk you through how it works by creating a Go serverless application, and deploying it to Lambda.
Prerequisites
This post assumes that you already have Go installed and configured on your development machine, as well as a basic understanding of Go development concepts. For more details, see https://golang.org/doc/install.
Creating an example Serverless application with Go
Lambda functions can be triggered by variety of event sources:
Asynchronous events (such as an object being put in an Amazon S3 bucket)
Streaming events (for example,

Raspberry Pi Zero WH has pre-soldered header

In a surprising announcement, a new Raspberry Pi model appears! With little fanfare, the “Raspberry Pi Zero WH,” as it is called, becomes an official variant of the diminutive Zero W. While it is technically not entirely new, it is still an exciting new model nonetheless. You see, the “H” seems to indicate “header” as this is a Raspberry Pi Zero W with a GPIO header soldered on. If you have a need for a Zero W with these pins, but don’t have soldering skills (or don’t have the time to do it yourself), this could be the ideal Pi for… [Continue Reading]
