“What makes Lisp cool is not that programs are data (because all programs are data), but that they are a particular kind of data. In most programming languages, programs are strings. Strings are in fact data. In Lisp, programs are not strings, they are linked lists (that happen to have a string representation). And this turns out to make all the difference.”

- Yes, code is data, but that’s not what makes Lisp cool

How To Build A Notification That You Won’t Hate:

const lifx = require('lifx-http-api'); require('dotenv').config();

module.exports = function(context, req) {

// if a color was passed on the query string if (req.query.color) { let client = new lifx({ bearerToken: process.env.LIFX_TOKEN });

// This sets the options for the bulb
let options = {
  color: req.query.color,
  duration: 2,
  power: true
};

client
  .setState('all', options)
  .then(result => {
    context.res = {
      // status: 200, /* Defaults to 200 */
      body: result
    };

    context.done();
  })
  .catch(err => {
    context.res = {
      status: 500,
      body: err
    };

    context.done();
  });

} else { context.res = { body: ‘Please pass a valid color’, status: 500 };

context.done();  

} };

“When every new website on the internet has perfect, semantic, accessible HTML and exceptionally executed, accessible CSS that works on every device and browser, then you can tell me that these languages are not valuable on their own. Until then we need to stop devaluing CSS and HTML.”

- Is there any value in people who cannot write JavaScript?

“The worst part about pushing the “know everything” mentality is that we end up creating an industry full of professionals suffering from burnout and mental illness. We have people speaking at conferences about wellbeing, imposter syndrome and full stack anxiety, yet despite that, we perpetuate this idea that people have to know everything and be amazing at it.”

Functional Programming in JavaScript with Hyperapp

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 15:39:47 +0000

Functional Programming in JavaScript with Hyperapp:

I kinda feel like a traitor given my pretty long history with Vue and React, but I think I have a new go-to frontend framework. Hyperapp is everything that I wanted Elm to be – it’s easy to build code with, highly organized, and state is handled flawlessly. That being said, it’s not as production ready as the aforementioned frameworks, but once it is I can see it being huge.

“You certainly don’t need jQuery today. Nor do you need to learn jQuery. However, jQuery is far from dead, dying, outdated or irrelevant. It serves many developers from many different walks of life.”

- Is jQuery still relevant?
