By default, the
button within the
form element sends a
POST request to the form’s action URL with
application/x-www-form-urlencoded encoded data as long as the inputs values are valid. However, it looks like we can override this functionality using
formnovalidate attributes. Stefan Judis explains it well in this article.
Ire Aderinokun created this handy resource that summarises all the Core Web Performance Metrics targets in one cheat sheet. Each of the metrics is also nicely explained.
Orta Therox shared this high-level overview of the TypeScript compiler and all its internal workings. It is so exciting and very well explained. Orta is an incredible technical instructor!
I like checking new ECMAScript proposals, but traversing GitHub readme files is not the best user experience. This website makes it much easier and presents all proposals, categorised by stages and popularity based on GitHub stars. Handy resource.
This article by Simon Plenderleith is a great primer to use JSON Schema Validator in Node.js. Simon explained all the benefits of using this validation technique and provided links to resources that can help us generate schemas and use them in different programming languages.
Dmitri Pavlutin published a great post about function overloading in TypeScript. Even though I don’t use this TS feature too often, I learned a few things from this post.
AWS Lambda now supports event filtering for Amazon SQS, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Kinesis as event sources #
This announcement can save you or your company a lot of money. There is no need to write a separate logic to filter kinds of events on a Lambda level with this feature. Configuration can capture events of interest, and the remaining ones are ignored — no need to invoke function at all.
A quick and lightweight text editor with IDE features built by JetBrains is coming. It looks like distributed deployment and collaboration tools are coming built-in. The design also looks top notch. It has a built-in terminal, git support, debugger, theming support, plugins, and all the things you would expect from an app like this in 2022. I am very interested in this one, and I am glad that some real competitor for Visual Studio Code is coming.
