Angular 2 RC5: Compiler Love
Trimming down your ~800k (minified!) set of Angular 2 dependencies just got a lot easier. Lots of breaking changes though :(

React Chat Continued: Redux
This is the second post in a series about building a simple chat application with React. This post adds state management with Redux and infinite scroll.

full disclosure I wrote this post but my colleague Rob did all the hard work.
A tutorial on how to build a realtime chat application using the JavaScript library ReactJS. This app uses PubNub's History API to add Infinite Scroll to the messaging app.

Magic Value Nightmare
Also a quaint description of TCP/IP and NAT
MaxMind, a digital mapping company, choose the Arnold's house as the "default location" for IP addresses it couldn't accurately map. The couple is suing after years of "digital hell" as a result.

Basic Intro To Functional JS
No super elaborate functor speak, just the basics.
This is a write up of my notes (plus some further research) from Kyle Simpson's excellent class Functional-Light JavaScript (slides here) on 29 of June, 2016.

The Imposter's Handbook
Or how to figure out what you don't know about programming. I know some people with CS degrees that will benefit from this.
There is so much I don't know about Computer Science. I figured I'd share that with you

My favourite café in all of Toronto. The coffee is decent to great, one can do better. However the consistency, ambiance, and service have completely won me over. The WiFi is generally good, and there is a lot of space. Ample windows for people watching on Queen West West, and great snacks. There is a focacia bun that will blown your mind.

Best coffee on Roncesvalles. There are other decent places on Roncy, but Lit is the best. Their WiFi is inadequate though.

Canada's answer to McDonald's, only without the integrity to keep the possessive apostrophe. Yes that's language laws, I know, but Tim Horton's is plebeian crap. Cheap coffee, overpriced food, the doughnuts haven't really been anything to write home about since the eighties. Mindless Canadian sheep love it though. They have clean bathrooms, that's their primary value, and decent hours.
