At The Kanban

Kanban is a lean method to manage and improve work across human systems. This approach aims to manage work by balancing demands with available capacity, and by improving the handling of system-level bottlenecks.

Work items are visualized to give participants a view of progress and process, from start to finish—usually via a Kanban board. Work is pulled as capacity permits, rather than work being pushed into the process when requested.

In knowledge work and in software development, the aim is to provide a visual process management system which aids decision-making about what, when, and how much to produce. The underlying Kanban method originated in lean manufacturing,[which was inspired by the Toyota Production System. Kanban is commonly used in software development in combination with other methods and frameworks such as Scrum.

Where Is Svelte?

There are many scenarios where Svelte technology is used and with some research in to svelte as a topic, I have found that it is beneficial to use simply because svelte is faster than react and Vue which are its main competitors. People now are seeing a lot of potential in svelte, and there is a thriving community now. The svelte technology can pretty much be used in any web development that you want you can build an entire web app if you want and because it is a compiler that takes your components, converts them into efficient JavaScript files with a very small amount of framework code that surgically updates the DOM. Frameworks such as react and Vue use a virtual Dom to optimize rendering changes, which just isn’t as fast. Svelte however provides reactively without using a virtual DOM it does this by tracking changes to the top-level component variables that affect each component renders and only we are rendering those parts of the Dom when changes are detected this is why svelte has better performance.

There is a company in brazil called stone that makes point of sale systems that you can put credit cards in to pay for things, they tried building an interface for these devices with React and Vue and other frameworks and they couldn’t get the results they wanted it was just to slow the user experience wasn’t great they built it with svelte instead and it went amazingly and there are now 200,000 devices on the streets of Brazil running svelte, these are low power devices that don’t have the same amount of memory and CPU capacity we have on a smartphone nowadays.

Mustlab is another example of a company where svelte technology is being used to make applications for smart TVs, svelte is the perfect fit for them it allows them to be extremely productive without having to worry about performance, they are expanding svelte now into other areas of the business including the control panel for smart home automation. The future is the embedded web you’re wearables, internet of things and smart TVs.

Svelte makes many tasks easier including defining components, managing component state, managing the application state and adding animations. Its ability to produce bundle code that is significantly smaller than the alternatives. Having you work with plain vanilla JavaScript, CSS, and HTML with a little HTML conforming syntax on top making it really easy to learn.

It’s been called the “disappearing framework.” This feature is probably Svelte’s greatest innovation, and every framework is trying to adopt this now. There are zero client-side dependencies. None. Just the end JavaScript of the component itself.

Agile Principles

Agile software development principles

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development is based on twelve principles:

  1. Customer satisfaction by early and continuous delivery of valuable software.
  2. Welcome changing requirements, even in late development.
  3. Deliver working software frequently (weeks rather than months)
  4. Close, daily cooperation between business people and developers
  5. Projects are built around motivated individuals, who should be trusted
  6. Face-to-face conversation is the best form of communication (co-location)
  7. Working software is the primary measure of progress
  8. Sustainable development, able to maintain a constant pace
  9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design
  10. Simplicity—the art of maximizing the amount of work not done—is essential
  11. Best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams
  12. Regularly, the team reflects on how to become more effective, and adjusts accordingly

Cloud computing

Cloud computing is the on-demand availability of computer system resources, especially data storage and computing power, without direct active management by the user. The term is generally used to describe data centers available to many users over the Internet. Large clouds, predominant today, often have functions distributed over multiple locations from central servers. If the connection to the user is relatively close, it may be designated an edge server.

Clouds may be limited to a single organization (enterprise clouds), or be available to many organizations (public cloud).

Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale.

Advocates of public and hybrid clouds note that cloud computing allows companies to avoid or minimize up-front IT infrastructure costs. Proponents also claim that cloud computing allows enterprises to get their applications up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance, and that it enables IT teams to more rapidly adjust resources to meet fluctuating and unpredictable demand. Cloud providers typically use a “pay-as-you-go” model, which can lead to unexpected operating expenses if administrators are not familiarized with cloud-pricing models.

The availability of high-capacity networks, low-cost computers and storage devices as well as the widespread adoption of hardware virtualizationservice-oriented architecture and autonomic and utility computing has led to growth in cloud computing.  By 2019, Linux was the most widely used operating system, including in Microsoft’s offerings and is thus described as dominant.  The Cloud Service Provider (CSP) will screen, keep up and gather data about the firewalls, intrusion identification or/and counteractive action frameworks and information stream inside the network.

Javascript

JavaScript often abbreviated as JS, is a high-levelinterpreted scripting language that conforms to the ECMAScript specification. JavaScript has curly-bracket syntaxdynamic typingprototype-based object-orientation, and first-class functions.

Alongside HTML and CSS, JavaScript is one of the core technologies of the World Wide Web.[JavaScript enables interactive web pages and is an essential part of web applications. The vast majority of websites use it,  and major web browsers have a dedicated JavaScript engine to execute it.

As a multi-paradigm language, JavaScript supports event-drivenfunctional, and imperative (including object-oriented and prototype-basedprogramming styles. It has APIs for working with text, arrays, dates, regular expressions, and the DOM, but the language itself does not include any I/O, such as networkingstorage, or graphics facilities. It relies upon the host environment in which it is embedded to provide these features.

Initially only implemented client-side in web browsers, JavaScript engines are now embedded in many other types of host software, including server-side in web servers and databases, and in non-web programs such as word processors and PDF software, and in runtime environments that make JavaScript available for writing mobile and desktop applications, including desktop widgets.

The terms Vanilla JavaScript and Vanilla JS refer to JavaScript not extended by any frameworks or additional libraries. Scripts written in Vanilla JS are plain JavaScript code.

Although there are similarities between JavaScript and Java, including language name, syntax, and respective standard libraries, the two languages are distinct and differ greatly in design. JavaScript was influenced by programming languages such as Self and Scheme.[13] The JSON serialization format, used to store data structures in files or transmit them across networks, is based on JavaScript

Jazz Guitar

Watch this ad hoc acoustic display of virtuosity.

He’s brilliant, this Manchester based jazz guitar/vocalist!

A voice to match and still looking for some kind of musical representation. Not after the earth, just regular pub/club bookings, and very approachable!

Twitter Tips

Building A Twitter Following!

  This article is aimed at those of you with a new twitter account or are wondering why you are struggling to build a decent following, of course you may just want your message out there and not care less about what the number is or isn’t under the followers on the menu in which case you’d be as well rambling to yourself.

      There are numerous books out there on this subject, some of which are very good, but some of which are overly grandiloquent and sadly dated. So the following steps outlined below will hopefully get your follower number rising in no time!                                                             

  1. Post regularly – a couple of times a day

  2. Don’t over-follow. We like a one to maintain a 1:1 ratio.

  3. Mix your content with your main message and selling point

which means try and entertain now and then, thus not boring

your reader.

      1. Avoid the shock content and gross factor tweet. It’s not nice!

      2. Thereby keep it pleasant!

      3. Keep it clean. Let’s face it most of us are ethical moral people and believe certain things should be kept behind closed doors.

      4. We wouldn’t buy a twitter following and only return follow now. Perhaps we’d achieve a greater following by hitting the follow button and perhaps not, we are experienced enough not to worry either way.

So hopefully by revealing our twitter strategy, we might help you achieve a little more success on your Twitter account.

Search Engine Optimization Multiplicity

MULTIPLICITY

This article will hopefully help those of you not as internet savvy or aware of search engine optimization strategies used by website people as those professionals actually in the business. So let’s begin!

We assume that if you typed into your browser a search for a specific service in a specific location provided by people actually in the area you would hope the results of that search to provide details of those offering the service to have their premises in the stated area. Of course these days, unfortunately, this is not the case.

To illustrate this try this google search:- ‘web design radcliffe’. Yell Directory comes up first! Do you know where the Yell office is in Radcliffe? These people are in fact based in Birmingham!

What these big companies and even small companies are doing is using multiple versions of the same home page but using a variable to change a location. Obviously the more times this is done the greater size of the site in effect. So to use a hypothetical example a web design agency in Bolton, Greater Manchester may have the same home page but load the same variable with  different values such as Radcliffe, Bury, Tottingham, Whitefield and so on.

We believe this practise to be morally wrong and http://derniercriweb.solutions is indeed located in Radcliffe. We do at this present time only use the one home page and would really love to help people local to the area achieve the websites and apps of their dreams. However if people around here are completely unwilling to change their attitudes and start communicating effectively we think we may be forced into relocation.

It is undeniably difficult to spot companies using multiple versions of the same page, however a few pointers are if the website address ends in an extension like .php .asp and anything other than .html or .htm you may begin to smell a rat, but we admit this is not always the case. Try also typing into your search a few different areas, then perhaps it may be clearer when a company is trying to achieve a monopoly of a service. Perhaps it is difficult and touchy area but it is something that Google need to look at if there is to be improved fairness in search engine results.
