Serverless’ latest release breaking Babel polyfill?

Here, get some context

Hey everyone, let me tell you about Serverless‘ latest release. You must be thinking “Three posts in ten days after three months absence what got into you JD?”. Nothing particular, well now that I go exercise in the morning and finish work around 5 I have tons of time to do stuff afterwards. Also I keep running into things from that feel blog worty. Indeed, today I experienced what can easily become a nightmare for developers. Broken continuous integration from out of nowhere. Indeed, this morning as I was making the latest adjustments to a project set to move towards production in a few days, the continuous integration broke after merging my latest pull request. The pull request contained minor changes in a configuration but nothing that would be used at any point  through CI.

Did you notice a MemoryCache problem with decimal precision?

A little bit of context first

Hi everyone. A couple months ago as I was building the CoinzProfit API, I ran into a weird issue with MemoryCache. In order to avoid hitting too often the various APIs CoinzProfit depends on like Coinbase’s, I decided to implement caching. Indeed, a cache allows keeping user calculated profits and various currency rates without having to fetch data too often.

Catching up after 3 months without posts

Long time no blog, loads of catching up to do. Surprisingly there is still a lot of people coming to read here despite the long absence. First of all, thank you for sticking around or swinging by if you are new here. My last post was a noob review that I published late March of this year. I made a quick review of a bit of software that the creator did not find to be fair.

NDepend’s static code analysis: Noob Review

Today I am going to do something I have not done before. A couple months ago I was contacted by NDepend to play around with their software. I did not check but there is probably a fair amount of software reviews out there. Hence why I will try an hopefully different approach. A noob approach. I’ll read the promise from the software to review and just dive into it without any sort of guidance. Let’s call it Noob Review. Yep, that’s how you create a series that might or might not live longer than a post.

Avoid App Store rejection when submitting 3rd party based app

A couple of days ago I submitted my first personal app to the Apple App Store. I know it can be surprising considering the few years I spent doing iOS development professionally. You may know this but I was more into Windows phone from its inception until Microsoft decided to murder it a few months ago. As a result, I fully switched to Apple, from the phone to the watch to the mac. Still kept my Windows laptop though.
