The future of web app development is taking shape, and it’s changing the way we think about server-side app architecture. In this article, Matt E. Patterson shows why a new WebSockets-driven …
In many ways, improving the way we read is the number one skill that can change our lives for the better. This article explains how this is done.
If the electricity for a vertical farm is supplied by solar panels, the energy production takes up at least as much space as the vertical farm saves. Urban agriculture in vertical, indoor “farms” is on the rise. Electric lights allow the crops to be grown in layers above each other year-round. Proponents argue that growers can save a lot of agricultural land in this way. Additional advantages are that less energy is needed to transport food (most people live in a city) and that less water and pesticides are required. Which crops? The vertical farms that have been commercially active for several years all focus on the same crops. These are agricultural products with a high water content, such as...
In English history, the years AD 410-1066 are traditionally called the ‘Anglo-Saxon’ period. How far is this an appropriate description, and how far can that name also be applied to the inhabitants of early medieval England? More pertinently, how did these people view themselves?

Mozilla has always championed the open web. So why is it abandoning desktop web apps, the most powerful alternative to proprietary App Stores?
The problem with developing front end projects isn’t that it’s harder or more complicated, it’s that you made it harder and more complicated. Yes! THIS! Web development did not change. Web development grew. There are more options now, not different options. You choose complexity. You can also choose simplicity.

We put the carbon into this world, and by God we can take it out again
Congrats to the Rust team and Mozilla for this milestone! I wonder if Mozilla could further its mission better by being an incubator instead of trying to develop its own products. They could develop technologies and build them into sustainable foundations. I trust Mozilla to think about the right things when starting a new technology, but I'm not so sure about their expertise to develop end-user products.
