How to Code a 2D Game Using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS

How to Code a 2D Game Using JavaScript


Last week at NodeConfEU, the awesome Liran Tal thought me about Kaboom.js, a JavaScript toolkit that can be used to easily create games in the browser! But if you feel really hardcore, you should know that you don't need a toolkit and you can just build everything from scratch with just JavaScript and a canvas. Do you want to learn how?

Preview.js

Preview.js


A VSCode plugin that allows you to have a preview pane to render the React, Solid, or Vue components that you are currently working on. I still have to try this but it seems like something that can save you a lot of time if you find yourself doing a lot of components!

The new wave of Javascript web frameworks

The new wave of Javascript web frameworks


How did we get from 0 to React? And what's coming next? This article explores the history of JavaScript frameworks (and the evolution of the web really) making it easy to understand the proliferation of new Javascript web frameworks. I like the fact that MPAs (Multi Page Apps) are considered the new rage even though they existed forever... Sometimes innovation just goes in cycles!

Leonardo Syndrome

Leonardo Syndrome


This is a non-technical short article, but I think all software engineers (including aspiring ones) will enjoy it! Did you know that Leonardo Da Vinci didn't really have such a great reputation during his time? He was so curious that he was literally incapable of completing anything. He was always moved to explore something else. Apparently, Leonard was not unique in this and the Leonardo Syndrome defines people that suffer from the same overwhelming level of curiosity!

Book of the week

book cover
Introduction to Algorithms, Third Edition (International Edition)
by Thomas H. Cormen

Some books on algorithms are rigorous but incomplete; others cover masses of material but lack rigor. Introduction to Algorithms uniquely combines rigor and comprehensiveness. The book covers a broad range of algorithms in depth, yet makes their design and analysis accessible to all levels of readers. Each chapter is relatively self-contained and can be used as a unit of study. The algorithms are described in English and in a pseudocode designed to be readable by anyone who has done a little programming. The explanations have been kept elementary without sacrificing depth of coverage or mathematical rigor.
