Another Vue.js Demo - INeedIt

Permalink - Posted on 2017-11-16 08:40

Ok, so ditto my previous warnings about being new to Vue.js and how my code is probably crap, blah blah blah. You get the idea. I'm learning. I'm sharing. Expect the code not to be perfect. Let's move on! I began with mobile development using Flex Mobile many, many years ago. I can remember getting a free phone at Adobe MAX (I think that was the year where we also got a Google TV) and downloading the Flex SDK that night in the hotel.

Working with Routes in Vue.js

Permalink - Posted on 2017-11-12 18:57

Warning - as I've made clear, I'm in the process of learning Vue.js. I want to share as I learn, but obviously, I'm still very new to it and you should not consider my code 'best practice', or heck, even 'experienced practice'. I full expect there are better ways of doing what I describe below, but I hope that sharing my learning process is helpful for others as well.

A Great Tutorial for Webpack

Permalink - Posted on 2017-11-07 11:11

Every now and then I'll blog something that I've been discussing on Twitter as a way to help those who have somehow managed to avoid becoming a Twitter user. (And trust me, you're probably better off for it.) For some time now I've been hearing about Webpack, and I've had the opportunity to meet the creator (Sean Larkin) at a few events. However, I've not had much luck actually learning it.

Read My (Free) Book on Apache OpenWhisk

Permalink - Posted on 2017-11-05 12:51

I am very happy to announce that my new book, "Developing Serverless Applications - A Practical Introduction with Apache OpenWhisk." I believe that may win the prize for the most "wordy" title of any book I've written. The best part is the price - 100% free. All you need to do is hop over to a signup form, register, and you'll get a copy of the PDF. It's a short book aimed at getting you up and running with serverless and OpenWhisk and will cover the basics of action creating, sequences, and making APIs.

My NCDevCon Progressive Web App Talk

Permalink - Posted on 2017-10-31 11:59

A few weeks ago I gave my first talk on progressive web apps (PWAs) at NCDevCon. I'm really happy they accepted my submission since it forced me to finally sit down and begin wrapping my head around the core concepts. While I certainly don't think I'm an expert yet, I think I gave a decent talk that focused on the practical aspects of PWAs and what's actually involved when creating them.

Just a quick note that I'm going to be OOO (Out of Office) for an extended period. My response times to emails will be quite a bit slower and I probably won't be blogging. Things will return to normal in 2 weeks. Normally I let social media know about my blog posts to help drive traffic, but obviously there's no real reason to do that for this one. However, if you are a regular reader who comes here just to see what's new, do me a favor and say hi below.

Calling Multiple Serverless Actions and Retaining Values with IBM Composer

Permalink - Posted on 2017-10-25 17:01

Forgive the incredibly long title, but I wasn't quite happy with the shorter versions. As I've mentioned before, IBM Composer supports multiple different "compositions", or "logic doohickies" (I work for IBM Marketing, honest), as a way to add conditional logic and branching to a serverless application. In this post, I'm going to share an example of the "Retain" composition. Before I start though, I want to give a shout out to Olivier Tardieu.

IBM Watson OpenWhisk Actions

Permalink - Posted on 2017-10-24 14:58

Many months ago I blogged about an OpenWhisk package I built for IBM Watson Tone Analyzer. The code wasn't terribly complex since most of the work was done by the npm package, but I thought it might be helpful to others looking to use the API with OpenWhisk. I've done some updates to that action and have added a new service today, Personality Insights. The new Personality Insights action can be found in my Watson package.

Migrating a Static Site from Harp to Jekyll

Permalink - Posted on 2017-10-23 14:35

So a few weeks back I blogged about how I was working on an update to CFLib. Specifically - I was looking to migrate to a new static site generator to make it easier to update content. This past weekend I made a lot of progress with my update and I think I'm ready to release the new version. I thought folks might be interested in the details of the rebuild.

Upgrading Serverless Superman to IBM Composer

Permalink - Posted on 2017-10-20 00:00

When IBM Composer was released, my plan was to try to slowly introduce readers to it with various different tutorials. My post earlier this week is an example. But I've been thinking a lot lately about a particular problem that Composer can fix for me, so I'm skipping ahead to a more complex topic for the post today. I guess this is a long winded way of saying - if you are still learning Composer this post may be a bit complex, but I'm definitely going to do more simpler posts later.
