JSK Weekly - April 17, 2019

This week, again, we have a lot of great articles. Angular and general JavaScript is the hottest topics. So let's dive right into it.

Design patterns are always an actual topic. That's why we recommend you a great article "Design patterns in modern JavaScript development" by Kristian Poslek.

Amsterdam JSNation had an interesting interview with Kyle Simpson, "Kyle Simpson: I’ve Forgotten More JavaScript Than Most People Ever Learn".

Angular developers might be interested in "How to Safely Access Attributes in Angular Using “?.”" by Chidume Nnamdi while their React colleagues can "Build a Super-Modular Todo App with React and Bit Components" with Josh Kuttler.

Vue.js developers will certainly enjoy Michael Lin's article "How to build a large Vue application".


Kyle Simpson: I’ve Forgotten More JavaScript Than Most People Ever Learn

Kyle is a living JavaScript classic, the truest embodiment of the spirit of open source. In his conversation with JSNation, he shares his wisdom and knowledge of all things JavaScript: the most controversial and fascinating things in the language and his “per aspera ad astra” journey to falling in love with JS.

Design patterns in modern JavaScript development

Thoughts on effective communication in the design of software projects Definitely. As is the case with object-oriented programming, we, the developers, are trying to model the world surrounding us. As such, it makes sense to also try and use the world surrounding us as a tool to describe our craft.

Exploring the hidden potential of JavaScript arrays!

Undoubtedly, arrays are one of the most useful and extremely popular JS data structures. These indexed collections proved time and time again that they're still the best (if not only) choice for a various number of use cases. But, arrays themselves wouldn't be so valuable without their whole, extremely expressive API.

There are quite a lot of articles about React out there speaking about controlled and uncontrolled components without explaining them.

How to build a large Vue application

The MVVM of the Observable model gives Vue a natural advantage in small and medium-sized Web applications, but with the growing popularity of Vue, Vue's use in large projects is slightly awkward. Obviously, in high complexity projects, type checking has become a required feature, and Vue2's type checking support in TypeScript is not good enough, and importantly the modular design of Vuex's state logic is lacking.

The Power of Named Transitions in Vue

Vue offers several ways to control how an element or component visually appears when inserted into the DOM. Examples can be fading in, sliding in, or other visual effects.
