How I stopped worrying and started to love holding presentations.

I had been working as a developer for a good 12 years when I was approached by my manager, and asked if I could assume the position of team lead for a while. I was humbled to be asked - however the mere thought of performing some of the tasks required by someone in that position in that particular setting was very frightening.

Can you save money with the Azure SQL Serverless tier?

When using fully-managed Azure SQL databases, there are mainly two different cost/resource models to choose between. In my team, we have been running the Standard tier, which has a fixed amount of resources provisioned, and thus a predictable fixed cost. The alternative is the Serverless tier that scales the database on demand, and instead, you pay-per-use. One of our important production databases uses a lot of computing power while performing various tasks once every morning, and then smaller sporadic load the rest of the day and night. A good fit for the Serverless tier? Could we achieve the same performance at a reduced cost? Read on, and I will let you in on what I figured out.

🎶On the third day of christmas a developer sent to me.. 3 React security tips!

Deno, a framework for JavaScript-ing

Back in 2009, Ryan Dahl entered the stage on JSConf and presented his newest project, Node.js. And since then, Node has grown into an enormous ecosystem with over 1.5 million packages on NPM. 9 years later, during JSConf 2018, he enters the stage again. This time, he apologizes to the JavaScript community and discusses the 10 things he regrets about Node. Towards the end, he reveals his new project, an alternative framework for JavaScript development. The new project is called Deno. And this year, Deno finally left the alpha stage, offering a stable CLI and solid documentation. Which means it's the perfect time to have a closer look!
