JavaScript

 

It is pretty clear to me at this point – that every single one of the frameworks brings different reasons to choose it and has its own Pros and Cons.

TOP 3 reasons to choose AngularJS are:

  • User Interface
  • Flexibility
  • Testing.

PROS

  • Amazing UI Design
  • Simple Routing
  • Great Libraries.

CONS

  • Limited Routing
  • 3rd party integration is complex
  • Scopes are hard to debug.

TOP 3 reasons to choose ReactJS are:

  • SEO Effective
  • Ability to create own components [don’t rely only on PolymerJS & Shadow DOM]
  • Great Efficiency [due to own virtual DOM].

PROS

  • Smooth interface & easy2learn API
  • Easier importing and JS debugging
  • Higher performance compared to other JS frameworks.

CONS

  • Very sophisticated view layer
  • It’s a library only not a framework
  • Will require additional configuration if you integrate into an MVC framework.

TOP 3 reasons to choose Node.js are:

  • Server-side proxy
  • NPM
  • Data Streaming.

PROS

  • Shares same piece of code with both client and server-side
  • Easily stream big files
  • Easy2learn & have a vibrant and large community.

CONS

  • Relational database issues
  • Requires deep understanding of JS to work with it
  • It’s not scalable because one CPU is not enough to take advantage of multiple tasks.

Every business obviously has its own needs and every Developer has own preferences in terms of which framework they prefer the work with and clearly after this short research these are the heavyweight leaders.

Is there a potential rival (vue.js)? Yes, maybe, but that’s for another research and I am very keen and opened to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

 

Whats your favourite? Let me know in the comments.

BIM

You have probably heard by now that one of the most iconic symbols of French history, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame was devastated by fire on Monday 15th April 2019. Within minutes the largely wooden building which took almost 200 years to build was up in flames. After over 15hrs of fire fighting the Parisian fire department managed to control the fire, though at this point the spire and most of the roof was gone. Thankfully due to the renovation work on the 850-year-old building many of the religious artefacts had been removed from the building, such as the crown of thorns.

However, there is still hope for the story yet! Andrew Tallon an architectural historian who died in 2018, used a 3D laser scanner to map the whole Cathedral. It was thought that his scans were to help in the restoration project, recording the buildings condition, with the archaeological recording and building pathology.

Tallon’s laser data consist of 1 billion data points in more than fifty locations over the Cathedral, structured as “point clouds,” which software can render into images of the three-dimensional space. As the first and second stages of the process were finished this will give contractors a massive head start as they can simply detail the existing 3D point cloud to generate a fully-functional, contractible model.

 

Notre Dame

 

Assassin Creed makers have also offered a lending hand along with a generous £450,000 to the reconstruction.

Over a 24-month period an artistic digital version of the building was created. Though some of the features such as the spire are different in the game. This is because the game is set in the French Revolution and the history of the cathedral architecture, has since changed. Developers have described the virtual Notre Dame as a landmark technical and architectural achievement. Though the digital artist did do an absolutely phenomenal job on the Cathedral, I doubt it will actually be able to be used as the underlying dataset just won’t be suitable for engineers to work with.

With these previous digital mappings and where BIM technology is today, it allows archaeologists to see the site as it was hundreds of years ago to how it is now.  It’s truly exciting to see that the real use of modern construction technology can essentially remap and design the famous Cathedral. I can’t wait to witness the reconstruction process and see it restored to its former glory; BIM will save the day!

This Christmas at Edge Careers we decided to support a charity that not only needs increased awareness but practical help.

Street Link is a government-funded service which allows people to alert local authorities in England and Wales about rough sleepers in need of support in their area. We contacted our local Outreach programme, who cover Redditch & Bromsgrove, to ask how we could assist them.

Knowing that this service will contact professionals who will try to find people and help them access things like shelter and food is a hands on approach that in the Winter months especially is a potential difference between someone surviving the cold spell or potentially not.

We decided with our contacts at Outreach to put together emergency rucksacks containing some essentials such as a torch, a warm hat, double layered socks, gloves, a travel mug for hot drinks or soup, some basic toiletries such as tooth brushes and hand sanitiser/wipes. A few items that will make an immediate difference to people who really need some kindness this Christmas.

The Outreach programme is vital in helping those less fortunate. If you can spare anytime or winter essentials that could help someone we urge you to please head to https://www.ccp.org.uk/ to find out how you can help or call the Caring for Communities and People team on 0300 365 8999.
