· Java Zone

What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the HTML5 Zone (March 27 - April 03). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. Updated: Parallax Effects in Hybrid/Web Apps

  • A while back I wrote about adding parallax effects to your HTML/JS experiences to make them feel a bit richer and closer to a native experience. I’ve just added this subtle (key word *subtle*) effect to a new project and made a few changes I wanted to share here.

2. 10 Essential Books For Web Designers

  • We asked some top web designers and developers to tell us some of the books that have made a big impression on them. The result is a peek at the bookshelves of some of the smartest people in the business, and an idea of the material that shapes their work.

3. #microtip - Center a Div Horizontally and Vertically

  • A small tip that can be handy, say when you are creating a landing HTML page. The goal is to position or align a div in the center of the browser. There are many misleading and non working examples when you google this, so I'm pasting a simple solution that works.

4. Bootstrap one-page template with Parallax effect

  • Bootstrap tutorial / parallax scrolling tutorial. It is no secret that the bootstrap is used on many websites now. This allows to save time and create excellent results in a short period of time. In particular it concerns the markup and styles.

5. The Bootstrap Framework Controversy ... Should You Use It or Not?

  • Released back in 2011, Twitter’s Bootstrap framework is one of the most popular – if not the most popular – front-end website development framework out there, at least in 2015. And not without a reason.

Microservices for Java, explained. Revitalize your legacy systems (and your career) with Reactive Microservices Architecture, a free O'Reilly book. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
