CosmosDB is a global database in the Azure universe. In this blog we’ll look at its different APIs: the SDK, Entity Framework Core and the MongoDB API.
We chose some interesting new topics we wanted to dive into and created a compressed, easy-to-read summary with some practical code snippets. To top it off, we discussed the topics in a podcast where you can get additional information about the posts from the authors. We hope you enjoy!
We're developers working on projects with technology we love every day. We must keep an eye on the ever changing web eco system. New tools and libraries popping up every
In diesem Blog Post gebe ich einen Überblick, wie erste Tests für BackstopJS geschrieben werden. Darüber hinaus erkläre ich, wie man BackstopJS in Docker ausführt, welche Befehle zur Verfügung stehen und wie visuelle Tests in einer Gitlab-Pipeline ausgeführt werden können.
BackstopJS ist ein Testing Tool, das bei Web-Frontends zum Einsatz kommt. Mit seiner Hilfe können schnell und einfach visuelle Regressionstests zu einer bereits beste
In 2014 the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) alliance announced the Universal Second Factor (U2F) specification which provides 2FA based on security keys, resistant to phishing, man-in-the-middle attacks (MitM) or stolen passwords. Let's have a look at its current state and browser support for WebAuthn!
Use complex passwords they said! It will be secure they said! This meme may be part of a humoristic view on the harsh reality. According to Google's study 1.9 billion pa
Since the web is evolving and becoming more mature, a new HTML Dialog element is being standardized to meet developers' needs. Today the implementation can be used directly in Chrome already—here's what you need to know.
An HTML dialog is a container for content which overlaps the rest of the site and is in the foreground. From a designer’s perspective a dialog catches the focus
CSS Scroll snapping is a method of defining snap points to tell the browser where it should stop scrolling. The process of snapping to the edge of an element (e.g. section, image, box, etc.) when coming close to it is used in order to achieve optimized scrolling positions and emphasise certain content.
In the past few years a recognizable trend of single page websites emerged (not to be confused with the term ‘single page application’). These sites consist of mainly
The Clipboard API is useful for customizing copy/cut/paste actions in the browser, eg. for reformatting the structure of the copied content, attaching metadata or adding external data to the content, copy/cut/paste on click or explicitly setting the content type. Let's dive in.
Standard web browsers allow developers to use the system clipboard. The Clipboard API is useful for customizing the copy/cut/paste actions. There are multiple scenari
In this part of our State of the Web series we look at Node.js 10, which offers better performance and new language features through an updated version of V8, a promisified file system API and a stable version of the N-API.
TypeScript 2.8 and 2.9 have been released with lots of new features. In this is summary I will be focusing on what I personally find handy and group it by usage. Let's hop right in!

Im Folgenden möchten wir den Begriff der Komponentenbibliothek erläutern und aus unseren Erfahrungen der parallelen Web-Entwicklung berichten.
Für größere Projekte, in denen mehrere Teams parallel an Web-Applikationen entwickeln, können wir bedenkenlos die Entwicklung und den Einsatz einer Komponentenbibliot
WebAssembly (or wasm for short) is a relatively new way to efficiently execute code in a browser. Since late 2017, it is supported in all modern major browsers (Chrom
