Setting Up an LDAP Server Instance on AWS

This blog describes the basics of what it takes to get an existing LDAP server moved from the PV virtualization type to HVM. I encountered this situation personally while working for a client earlier this year. Efforts have been made to keep most of it generic enough to be useful for other situations involving system upgrades or replacements as well.

Harnessing the Javascript Spread Operator

Alex Cassells Development Technologies, JavaScript, Tutorial Leave a Comment

The toolset of the JavaScript developer is ever-evolving and ever-changing. Array manipulation saw dramatic improvements in usability, utility, and readability with the release of the ECMAScript 6 standard in 2015. This update was released with game-changing features like arrow functions, scoped variables like ‘let’ and ‘const’, and many other commonly used tools.

As a developer, I use these features on a regular basis when developing in a Javascript environment, whether that’s a front-end library, such as React or Angular, or on the backend through Node. Most developers have experience with arrow functions and scoped variables, which are incredibly common to see throughout modern code bases. One feature included in ECMAScript 6 is the Spread Operator. While I do not often see it used, it is perhaps my favorite.

In this blog, I will cover the Spread Operator. We’ll talk about what it is and how it’s used to manipulate both objects and arrays. We’ll walk through some examples to help you get started using it in your programming along the way. Let’s jump in.

Multiple Emulators with VS Code

Multiple Emulators with VS Code

John Hoestje Programming, Tutorial 2 Comments

Recently, I was joking with some team members, trying my best to get someone to develop a VS Code plugin for me that would allow VS Code to simultaneously connect to multiple Android emulators.

I was working on some font sizing issues in Flutter and needed to test the changes on multiple device viewport sizes. Needless to say, it was taking too much time to ramp various Android emulators up and down.

Later that day, I decided to start playing with the debugger and emulator options, with no expectations of finding anything substantial. Sometimes throwing something against the wall to see if it sticks provides the best surprises!
