The aim of your website is obviously to get potential customers to engage with it as much as possible, and ultimately, make a purchase. But as we well know, it isn’t as simple as someone landing on your website and instantly converting. 9 times out of 10, there’s a whole sequence of actions that take place before a customer makes a purchase.

If you’re a dev you’ve no doubt, come across people talking about monolith and microservice application architecture. Perhaps you are involved in designing a new system and have been asked to consider both architectures. The conversations are often regarding how microservices are the successor to monolith architecture, but today I’m going to try and layout why it’s not as simple as one being better than the other.

The term “Design Pattern” describes a well-known and battle-tested solution to a problem that developers tend to encounter again and again when developing software. Design patterns are conceptual and can be implemented in any programming language. Design patterns generally fit into one of the following three different categories depending on the problem they address: In this blog post I’m going to cover a pattern from each of these categories in depth.

Over the past few months, I’ve been redesigning and writing StatusCake’s SSL monitoring feature from Node to Go. This blog post describes one of the more subtle challenges we came across to help you master it if you find yourself with it too! Writing a Go client that fetches an SSL certificate isn’t a new problem. A common approach is to use a http.Client. This limits you to just certificates served over HTTPS, when technically anything running TLS can have a certificate.

Stop what you’re doing and make your passwords more secure! How, you ask? Read on to find out. It’s become very anecdotal when we speak about passwords for our online accounts and why these might matter.

We are wrong.

JavaScript Object Notation or JSON is a file format that was originally derived from JavaScript. It is used for storing and exchanging data, most commonly when serving data to websites, but JSON but has become ubiquitous amongst most programming languages as it is totally language independent. These days it is common to find JSON being used for a variety of purposes where data needs to be stored or transferred.

In this latest frontend trend of using JavaScript frameworks (e.g. React and Vue) to split out sections of our code into components, design systems have a fantastic role to play. A design system can be thought of as a cookbook. Each recipe has a picture of the meal (or in our case, a living, interactive example of the component), an ingredients list (maybe sub-components that live within parent components), and finally the instructions (how to implement and tweak with props).
