Week 51 - 2014

I’m not a developer. Please show me the cool stuff!

It’s just a few days until Christmas. The holiday spirit is slowly kicking in, so this weeks sharing is all about enjoying your holiday and maybe learn something new. All photos in this post is shot by me last year just before Christmas. They are all trying to slow you down to a reasonable holiday speed.

Christmas holiday is a good time to pick up the stuff you love to do. Here is a list of Node.js modules to kick start your dream project you always wanted to do. A good list of useful and not so useful Node.js modules. // github.com #nodejs #npm

In case you don’t have a dream project, and feel kind of uninspired, I’m throwing in this nice Christmas real time tracker made in Node.js. Maybe something like this could be your holiday project? The Christmas tracker The story behind the Christmas tracker // ashleynolan.co.uk #nodejs #realtime

Even if you are playing around with prototypes or other private projects it’s important to think about testing. It’s always nice to think about testing, even if it sometimes hurt. Browser testing can be a real pain in the *ss. This is where Phantom.js comes to the rescue. To get started with Phantom.js you should try Phantom.js live test page, and Phantom.js is found here. // ozaur.com #phantomjs #unittest

Now you have all the components you need to start your holiday project. If you still don’t have a clue and are up for it you can try to follow this write up and build you own Instagram clone. // hackhands.com #nodejs #instagram
