We're all designers. Whether we do a layout, a product design or write code to design a product technically doesn't matter here. What does matter though, is that we always take the context of a project into consideration. Because as someone shaping a project so that it is appealing to the clients and works in the best way possible for the target audience, we have a pretty big responsibility. Imagine architects building a wall out of recycled material that also looks nice -- sounds pretty great, right? But seen in the context that this will be a wall that divides people and encourages racism and even more inequality in our society, our first impression of the undertaking suddenly shifts into the opposite direction. We have to make new decisions every time we start a new project, and seeing things in context is crucial to live up to our responsibility -- both in our work and our lives.The post Web Development Reading List #174: The Bricks We Lay, Remynification, And 0-RTT appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

Matthias Noback has continued his series about "mocking the edges" in your unit testing with this new post. In it, he talks about mocking "the network", those places where your application reaches out to external services to access data or perform other operations. In this series, we've discussed several topics already. We talked about persistence and time, the filesystem and randomness. The conclusion for all these areas: whenever you want to "mock" these things, you may look for a solution at the level of programming tools used (use database or filesystem abstraction library, replace built-in PHP functions, etc.). But the better solution is always: add your own abstraction. [...] The same really is true for the network. You don't want your unit tests to rely on a network connection, or a specific web service to be up and running. [...] The smarter solution again is to introduce your own interface, with its own implementation, and its own integration test. [...] Though this solution would be quite far from traditional mocking I thought it would be interesting to write a bit more about it, since there's also a lot to say. In his example he shows the use of a file_get_contents call to fetch stock information. He introduces a ExchangeRateService interface with a getFor method to provide structure for the "wrapper" around the network call. He then covers the idea of an "anti-corruption layer" to change up the interface to use models instead of just a string value (code included). He ends the post talking about the inversion of the dependency - the option to have a job pull the value out-of-band and then have the application use that value.

To assure good rankings in search engines, basic knowledge in search engine optimization (SEO) is required. However, many website owners don’t have a lot of know-how when it comes to optimizing websites for search engines. Today, we’ll impart the essential knowledge to you, so your site has the chance to look good in the ranking, and become successful. SEMrush conducted a study that was meant to collect real data. To do so, anonymous information from about 100,000 websites was collected and evaluated. The results are the eleven most common SEO problems from the technological side, which can have a direct impact on ranking. Problem 1: Duplicate Content Google defines duplicate content as follows: Duplicate content generally refers to substantial blocks of content within or across domains that either completely match other content or are appreciably similar. Mostly, this is not deceptive in origin. Supposedly, duplicate content was found on at least 50 percent of the examined websites. Google usually assumes that the duplicate content was not created on purpose. Thus, there will be no official sanctions for duplicate content. However, that doesn’t mean that a blind eye is turned here, as websites with duplicate content still rank lower than those without […]
