Introducing the Crudzilla Web Application Builder (CWAB) platform!

Today we introduce the Crudzilla Web Application Builder (CWAB) platform, a different and refreshing approach to web development tooling. We believe web development tools have hit an evolutionary dead-end and it is time to think afresh about what a modern web developer tool should be about. Should it be about clever tricks and an obsession with code manipulation features, or should it be about enabling the shipment of quality software products? We believe it should be about the latter.

Even as existing tools pay lip-service to helping developers build better software, they have often failed to address the most important mission of any tool, which is to boost productivity. When one takes a survey of the landscape for web development tools, it seems the biggest productivity features are still syntax highlighting and code completion, these innovations are almost 20 yrs old.

CWAB is based around simplicity of use and product delivery. If you care about shipping software, be it as an everyday activity at work or as a comprehensive delivery for a client, you'll appreciate what the CWAB platform has to offer.
We hope this is the start of a new and exciting era in web development tooling, enjoy!
Edmond Kemokai, Founder.

Reactive and Component Frameworks for "Old Fart" Programmers

One of the great challenges for experienced developers when confronted with new concepts is being able to map one's existing knowledge to the new concept. As they say, there is nothing new under the sun, that is often more true for new development methodologies.

Even when new jargon is brought to bear on new methodologies, often upon closer inspection you recognize that it is something that you already know that is being described in a new way (unfortunately sometimes in a convoluted way to make it seem new).

Reactive/Component UI/UX frameworks are one such development, while their particular implementations may be new and novel, almost all of the underlying concepts are not new.


This is hardly a thorough presentation of Reactive/Component frameworks, but rather an attempt to fill in some gaps for developers who have experience but might find themselves confused by some of these new kids on the block.

The top 3 reactive component frameworks being React, Angular and Vue. All of the…

The feds need to shutdown the bitcoin scam now.

I live in Baltimore, let's say I have some hypothetical friends who are always looking for a good hustle.

Now imagine if my friends got together for a new get-rich-quick-scheme, the scheme is very simple. They invent something called cracken (bitcoins) that they start selling on a few blocks in Hamsterdam.

The way you get crackens is to do laps around the blocks in Hamsterdam. Initially when the scheme was setup, you could get a whole lot of crackens by merely doing a few strolls around the block. Needless to say my friends made out like bandits, since, after all they created the scheme and could take advantage of the first-come-first-serve rules.

Unfortunately for the rest of the hood, the number of laps required to get the same number of crackens keeps going up and after a while even the fittest folks in the neighborhood cannot do the lapse required to earn crackens.

Cracken mania takes hold and infects the whole city. Those with crackens start trading these crackens for exor…

What happened to sharing work with other developers?

There was a time when you could create something interesting and post it to a forum with programmers and actually get people interested in what you have. These days it seems short of being blessed (exactly by whom, only god knows) on HackerNews there is little chance you can get anyone's attention.

It is difficult to say precisely what the issue is because it seems multifaceted. It appears a combination of the rise of GateKeepers, perhaps cynicism inspired by the rise of GateKeepers and just a general overload of information has coalesced into a very difficult situation for those of us still daring to create without a VC backed turbo to charge forward with.

Over the past 5-8 yrs I have become quite dishearten by this loss of a genuinely curios developer community, or maybe I am just an old (36) fart who's been left behind.

Even tenure in certain communities doesn't count for anything anymore. I have been a member of HackerNews for 8.5 yrs and have only had 3 or 4 of my po…
