Writing real time applications using Spring, AngularJS and WebSockets

HTML5 made browsers a powerful alternative to desktop applications. However, network traffic (when using AJAX or by simply loading pages) is always in one direction. The client requests a page from the server, which in turn responds with the proper content. With HTML5 WebSockets that’s a different story, websockets allow you to setup a full duplex […]

Writing real time applications using Spring and AngularJS (Part 3: AngularJS)

In the previous two tutorials I made the entire back-end for the real time application.

This […]

In Dojo there are two modules that are commonly used, called dojo/ready and dojo/domReady. In this small tutorial I will explain you what the differences are and in what situation you should use them.

Dojo require vs define

I didn’t exactly plan on writin this, but after a question from an intern, I thought it might be interesting to exaplain the difference between require() and define(). Every developer who has used Dojo or even another JavaScript framework/platform like Node.js and RequireJS, knows that one time or another, you need to load your modules. In Dojo they chose […]
