MobX vs. Redux

MobX vs. Redux: Choosing The Right State Management Solution

When working with popular frameworks like React or Vue, we must organize convenient storage and manage the application state. For example, React allows one to manage the state of components out of the box using this.setState and this.state. Yet, with application growth comes the need for communication between components that often results in insufficient functionality.

Animations in Android Image Loaders: Comparison of Picasso, Glide, and Fresco

A modern Android application is hard to imagine without image loaders. They take over the rough work of loading asynchronously, processing errors, displaying placeholders, caching, and transforming pictures. Process automatization exempts the developer from the need to “reinvent the wheel”, giving an opportunity to focus on writing business logic instead of boilerplate code. As of
ASP.NET Core Pros and Cons

ASP.NET Core Advantages and Disadvantages

In continuation of the article where we discussed what is more appropriate for Docker containers: .NET Core or .NET Framework, let’s take a closer look at ASP.NET Core advantages and disadvantages.

Azure Service Bus in .NET Core: Communication between microservices

The topic of microservices architecture has become increasingly popular over the last couple of years. The reason behind it lies in numerous advantages that the modular architectural style brings to the table, especially when it comes to designing complex applications. We’ve already covered the pros and cons of implementing microservices architecture and compared microservices against
Asynchronous programming in Flutter

Asynchronous programming in Flutter

Building modern mobile apps is impossible without asynchronous code. Most of the tasks that an application has to perform, to one degree or another, require a long wait for the result of the operation: network queries, working with databases, reading user input. An asynchronous approach (executing a process without blocking it) allows more rational use
