In the past 5 years, I had the opportunity to work in an OTT platform called DAZN that streams live and on-demand sports events across the globe.
During this journey, we had to overcome several challenges considering we were (and still are) pioneers of live video streaming. After the first release, I realized in order to scale the organization we had to rethink our platform to allow us scaling not only from a technology point of view but also from a people perspective.
For achieving this, we had to review several approaches and common practices for scaling our company and onboard more and more people working on the same project.
Our answer was embracing a new frontend architecture called Micro-Frontends that in combination with Microservices help us to scale our teams, creating independent artefacts that are mapped with our business domains. Micro-Frontends bring a new approach for scaling frontend projects, decentralizing the decision making and stopping the one-size-fits-all approaches very well known by the frontend community.
I decided to gather my experience building our Micro-Frontends architecture and share it into the pages of a book.
For more information, I suggest visiting the book website where you can also subscribe to the updates. I’ll keep you informed on the next chapters, new content released online, events where I’ll talk about Micro-Frontends and more.
The early release allows you to share your feedback with me, shaping the content inside the book and having a voice during the writing process, don’t miss this opportunity, WE can do an awesome job TOGETHER.
A couple of weeks ago I became blogger reviewer for O’really, so I take this opportunity to open my mind and learn new stuff about new technologies, programmation languages, etc.
So this is my first review and I start with an HTML5 video course.
Why am I talking about HTML5 in this blog? Because I think it’s important to know and learn if it could be useful in some projects or not.
Starting with this idea I’ve decided to watch this video course about HTML5 on mobile development.
Video courses aren’t my favorite media to learn new stuff because I love to sign my books, add some notes…you know what I mean… but this time I was really impressed about how O’Reilly organized it.
Seems you are in a real classroom with teacher in front of you that show code examples, tips & tricks using HTML5, CSS3 on iPad or iPhone.
Course is focused on mobile development, Jake Carter, the author, shows also Android world, how to configure your computer to work with emulator and simulator for Android, iPhone and so on.
I really love the way that he works in the classroom because first of all he explains the powerful of a particular feature, then show how to implement it and finally a little part of Q&A from internet people (I suppose).
During this video course you can learn useful stuff, take a look at table of contents in O’reilly website.
It was my first time with HTML5 and I think is an interesting technology, in particular, during this course I learn how to work with geolocation, with JS and Canvas, with audio and video API and again how to save data directly on the device in a database.
I appreciate a lot al meta and css dedicated to iPhone and iPad, very useful.
Finally if you are interesting to learn a new way to develop on mobile, I suggest to take a look at this reference.
It’s useful, easy and I think is a fast method to learn.
