IDG Contributor Network: Microservices need to honor contracts - 3日前  InfoWorld

“The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.” Archilochus said in 700 B.C. Centuries later, Unix was developed using similar philosophy: “Do one thing and do it well.”Derived on the same principles, microservices aim to deliver specific functionality in an independent repeatable way, but any change to that microservice must not result in breaking other services or consumers that it interacts with. Because microservices often invoke other microservices, each must provide a well-defined contract for deployed versions so that any change in the producer microservice will not b...more

A full-stack developer is full of something, alright - 4日前  InfoWorld

Find someone who calls himself a “full-stack developer” and smack him right across the face for being a liar or terrible.

Just because you made everything JavaScript doesn’t solve that fundamental problem. Most papers on quantum physics are in English; I speak English but I’m not automatically a quantum physicist. As one developer I know put it, that’s...more

IDG Contributor Network: How to work with HTTP Range Headers in WebAPI - 3日前  InfoWorld
