When it comes to website development and maintenance one aspect is often missed: website speed. Despite mobile-first approaches and responsive designs, many websites still have loading times that are too long, which can prove off-putting for visitors. Yet, loading time is one of the key reasons why consumers abandon a website. Our guide reveals what you can do to make your website faster.

Polyfill

Polyfills: code components for cutting-edge web features

Websites and apps are subject to constant change. New features and functions often promise a higher-value, securer or better-performing web project, which is why their implementation is often a mere formality. Many browsers, however, clearly lag behind when it comes to supporting cutting-edge web technologies – a problem that you can counteract with so-called polyfills.

Microservice Architecture

Microservice architectures: more than the sum of their parts?

Microservice architecture has established a relatively new way of structuring complex applications. Instead of dealing with huge source code, you build a program made of many self-contained services. This also leads to a restructuring of workflow in terms of agile project management. What are the pros of this method? This article will explore how microservices are designed, what advantages they...

Declarative programming

Declarative programming: When “what” is more important than “how”

JavaScript, SQL, Python – it is difficult to keep track of the growing number of programming languages. But at heart, they belong to just two fundamental programming paradigms: imperative and declarative programming. The latter is based on the essential question: What is the program supposed to achieve? In this article, we explain how this can work and examine the strengths and weaknesses of the...

Imperative programming

Imperative programming: Overview of the oldest programming paradigm

There are many programming languages. But when should which language be used? Familiarity with the two fundamental programming paradigms in software development makes that decision easier. Imperative programming is the oldest paradigm and is still being used today. Our overview outlines what an imperative programming language can do and what its limits are.

Functional Programming

Functional Programming: ideal for algorithms

Functional programming continues to play a key role today – more than 60 years after its initial use in the LISP interpreter . As a subfield of declarative programming ("What should the program achieve?"), its strength lies in the processing of mathematical tasks – in particular, that of algorithms. In this article, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages alongside a practical example.

What is HTML5?

Introduction to HTML5

HTML5 is the new core language of the internet. But many web developers have opted out of this version and instead still use older markup languages like HTML 4.01 or XHTML. These often require plugins, reducing the site’s compatibility and security. HTML5, on the other hand, supports the direct integration of multimedia elements as well as JavaScript-based programming interfaces.

Source code explained: Definition & Examples

Source code: What exactly is it?

Programs and websites are based on comprehensive documents without which nothing would work: the source code. In this code, programmers and web designers determine how their application should function. So that you, too, can understand what exactly a source code is, we explain simply and clearly how it’s structured. Find out more about programming languages, compilers, and the framework of a...
