I've been using the twit NodeJs library that calls through to the twitter api, and I was having trouble searching for a combination of multiple keywords in a tweet. Luckily, I found this great page that they call basic search operations:
If you know me well then you probably know how in love I am with serverless backends, cloud functions, lambdas, and whatever other fancy names they can give for basically a pay-only-for-what-you-use server. I'm also pretty fond of the Serverless Framework (https://github.com/serverless/serverless) which let's you easily scaffold out a new project meant to be run on a serverless architecture. Although I've only been using it for AWS Lambda, I recently made a little mistake that turned out to be a great discovery, and in this post I'll tell you all about it!
When I'm designing a web application that I want to be responsive, I frequently use the units vh and vw (which stand for viewport height and viewport width). These are great because they allow you to size things based on a percentage of the viewport height. However, sometimes you want things sized at 100% of the height or width minus a constant, and that's where the calc function comes in handy!
In my new role I've been given the opportunity to really dig into React, learn a lot about it, and build an application with it. I had previously used Ngrx in Angular 2 so it was interesting to go back to the original Redux library after having used the Angular step-cousin. After a few small roadblocks the application is progressing rather smoothly, and I have to say I think Redux is pretty dang awesome.
