• Is interactivity a major factor for an app’s success?

      Psychology plays an important role in the success of any marketing strategy. Attracting people to your app needs the right psychological approach. Human behaviors are highly crucial which are required to be considered while forming strategies.

      Simplest thing in application affects their interactivity greatly. For example, even the number of notifications, as well as the time at which they will be sent, have a strong impact. According to a survey, 60% of respondents have a preference for what time of day they receive notifications.



      This indicates that the way an app will communicate with users will have an immense effect on its success or failure. Do you know what are the factors that affect the interactivity of your app? Apart from that, how can you make an app interactive?

    • React Token Auth


      Problem


      Authorization is one of the first problems developers face upon starting a new project. And one of the most common types of authorization (from my experience) is the token-based authorization (usually using JWT).


      From my perspective, this article looks like "what I wanted to read two weeks ago". My goal was to write minimalistic and reusable code with a clean and straightforward interface. I had the next requirements for my implementation of the auth management:


      • Tokens should be stored in local storage
      • Tokens should be restored on page reload
      • Access token should be passed in the network requests
      • After expiration access token should be updated by refresh token if the last one is presented
      • React components should have access to the auth information to render appropriate UI
      • The solution should be made with pure React (without Redux, thunk, etc..)

    • Understanding the Concept of Modern Web App Development In 2020



      Millions of businesses exchange information on the internet and to interact with their target audience. This helps them make fast and secure transactions over the web. However, business goals can be achieved when the businesses are able to store all this data for the means of presenting quality output to the end users.

      Simply put, in the development industry a web application (or “web app”) is more like a program that uses a web browser to handle the storage and retrieval of the information to present information to the users. This allows a user to interact with the company using the online forms, e-shopping carts, CMS, etc. Some more examples of web applications are online banking, online polls, online forums, online reservations, shopping cart, and interactive games.

      Learning about web development is kind of like having too many things on a plate. This blog serves as a way to get your acquainted with the world of web app development.

    • Top 5 ReactJS Development Companies

        image

        ReactJS is an open-source JavaScript library designed by Facebook for developing rich and engaging web apps efficiently and quickly with minimal coding.

        The core task of ReactJS is providing the best possible rendering performance. Its strength comes from the focus on the individual elements. Instead of working on the complete web app, ReactJS allows a programmer to break down the complex UI into simpler elements.

        As per a survey conducted by The State of Javascript, React JS has surpassed Angular and others in becoming the most loved Javascript library.

        In 1998, a completely unique, for its time, application was developed that allows you to reduce the process of developing an abstract board game (or puzzle) to a small text description language, vaguely reminiscent of Lisp. This project was called Zillions of Games. It created a furor among fans of board games. Currently, over 2,000 applications have been created using this technology.

      • MobX or Redux: Which is Better For React State Management?



          In JavaScript, state management is a hot of discussion these days. When it comes to implementing state management, developers often find it challenging dealing with boilerplate code in Redux. Hence, MobX has proved to be a good alternative to Redux which gives the same functionality with less code to write. However, both state management tools work well with React.

          Let's first have a look at the common things between the two:

          1) Both support time-travel debugging
          2) Both contain open-source libraries
          3) Both provide a client-side state management
          4) Both provide huge support for React native frameworks

          In this blog, we have listed all the pros and cons of both state management solutions. It will help web developers to choose the best one for their next project. Before discussing this, we have compared both Redux and Mobx based on some parameters as given below:

          • Angular: The Best Building Companion for Interactive apps

              Do you know there were 5 million apps in 2019? Out of these millions of apps, only a few are able to perform. There are many reasons for this but a major factor is the interactivity of an app.

              No matter which product you are trying to sell, customers choose the one which allows them to get involved. Interactive apps are in demand for a long time. Are you wondering how can you make an interactive app?

              The first thing which comes to our mind when we talk about interactive apps is the concept of single page application. This is because SPAs are known for their capacity to interact with the user by reloading some page elements dynamically depending upon the interaction by the user.

            • Cracking Reduce Concept In Just 10 Minutes



                Being a developer, I love to code especially in JavaScript. As per my experience, using reduce function is one of the toughest tasks in JS. Let me first elaborate on the Reduce concept!

                In Wikipedia, it has many names viz.

                Reduce
                Fold
                Accumulate
                Aggregate
                Compress

                It is a function that folds a list into any data type. It's all about breaking a structure down into a single value. It's like folding a box! With reduce, you can turn an array [1,2,3,4,5] into the number 15 by adding them all up.

              • How To Implement JavaScript Utility Functions Using Reduce?



                  When it comes to code in JavaScript, developers found reduce function as one of the toughest concepts to crack. According to Wikipedia, Reduce has multiple names viz. Accumulate, Fold, Compress and Aggregate. These names clearly indicate the meaning & working of reduce function. The idea behind this is to break down a structure into a single value. Hence, Reduce can be defined as a function which converts a list into any data type.

                  For example, you can reduce an array [5,4,3,2,1] into the value 15 by just adding them.

                  Reduce function keeps developers away from using loop in order to fold a list into a single value.

                  In this blog, you will learn ways to implement well-known functions using reduce as already done by developers in top software development company.

                  I have listed out 10 JavaScript utility functions recreated using reduce function. So, check out below these functions:-

                  • Map


                  Parameters used


                  array (to transform list of items), transform Function (is a function used to run on each element)

                  Working


                  By using the given transformFunction, each element in the given array get transformed and returns new array of items.

                  How to implement?


                  const map = (transformFunction, array1) =>
                    array1.reduce((newArray1, xyz) => 
                  {
                  	newArray1.push(transformFunction(xyz));
                  
                  	return newArray1;
                    }, 
                  []
                  );
                  

                  Use case:


                  const double = (x) => x * 2;
                  const reverseString = (string) =>
                    string
                  	.split('')
                  	.reverse()
                  	.join('');
                  
                  map(double, [200, 300, 400]);
                  
                  Output: [400, 600, 800]
                  
                  map(reverseString, ['Hello Alka', 'I love cooking']);
                  // ['alkA olleH', ‘gnikooc evol I']

                • Top 5 Software Development Practices to Follow in 2020



                    Though it seems we are just a few months away from reaching 2020, these months are also important in the field of software development. Here in this article, we will see how the coming year 2020 will change the lives of software developers!

                    Future Software Development Is Here!


                    Traditional software development is about developing software by writing code and following some fixed rules. But the present-day software development witnessed a paradigm shift with advances in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. With the integration of these three technologies, developers will be able to build software solutions that learn the instructions and add extra features and patterns in data that are needed for the desired outcome.

                    Let’s Try Out With Some Code


                    Over time, the neural network software development systems have become more complex in terms of integrations as well as layers of functionality and interfaces. Developers can build a very simple neural network with Python 3.6. Here’s an example of a program that does binary classification with 1 or 0.

                    Of course, we can start by creating a neural network class:


                    import numpy as np
                    X=np.array([[0,1,1,0],[0,1,1,1],[1,0,0,1]])
                    y=np.array([[0],[1],[1]])
                    


                    Applying the Sigmoid function:

                    def sigmoid ():
                       return 1/(1 + np.exp(-x))
                    def derivatives_sigmoid ():
                       return x * (1-x)


                    Training the Model With Initial Weights and Biases:
                    epoch=10000
                    lr=0.1
                    inputlayer_neurons = X.shape[1]
                    hiddenlayer_neurons = 3
                    output_neurons = 1
                    
                    wh=np.random.uniform(size=(inputlayer_neurons,hiddenlayer_neurons))
                    bh=np.random.uniform(size=(1,hiddenlayer_neurons))
                    wout=np.random.uniform(size=(hiddenlayer_neurons,output_neurons))
                    bout=np.random.uniform(size=(1,output_neurons))


                    For beginners, if you need help regarding neural networks, you can get in touch with top software development company.Or, you can hire AI/ML developers to work on your project.

                    • Vue.js Is Good, But Is It Better Than Angular or React?

                      Vue.js is a JavaScript library for building web interfaces. Combining with some other tools It also becomes a “framework”. Now, from our last blog, you already know that Vue.js is one of the top JavaScript frameworks and it is replacing Angular and React in many cases. This brings in the topic of this blog ‘Vue.js is good, but is it better than Angular or React?


                      In case you’ve never heard or used Vue.js before, you are probably thinking: Come on! yet another JavaScript framework! We get it. However, Vue.js is not new in the custom software development domain. It was first released in 2013 and now it has 130549 stars on Github and downloaded a number of times this year.

                    • Bypassing LinkedIn Search Limit by Playing With API

                      • Translation
                      [Because my extension got a lot of attention from the foreign audience, I translated my original article into English].

                      Limit


                      Being a top-rated professional network, LinkedIn, unfortunately, for free accounts, has such a limitation as Commercial Use Limit (CUL). Most likely, you, same as me until recently, have never encountered and never heard about this thing.

                      image

                      The point of the CUL is that when you search people outside your connections/network too often, your search results will be limited with only 3 profiles showing instead of 1000 (100 pages with 10 profiles per page by default). How ‘often’ is measured nobody knows, there are no precise metrics; the algorithm decides it based on your actions – how frequently you’ve been searching and how many connections you’ve been adding. The free CUL resets at midnight PST on the 1st of each calendar month, and you get your 1000 search results again, for who knows how long. Of course, Premium accounts have no such limit in place.

                      However, not so long ago, I’ve started messing around with LinkedIn search for some pet-project, and suddenly got stuck with this CUL. Obviously, I didn’t like it that much; after all, I haven’t been using the search for any commercial purposes. So, my first thought was to explore this limit and try to bypass it.
