Top 10 Programming Languages: March 2017
The Relative Strength Index for Programming Languages (RSIPL) is a metric I devised and first published starting in March 2017. RSIPL was created after reading several similar articles and lists, most notably, the RedMonk Programming Languages Rankings. The ranking methodology RedMonk uses is based upon popularity of the languages on Github (measuring “code”, as they put it) and StackOverflow (measuring “discussion”). As good as this list is, I feel that it is perhaps less timely than it could be, and that it is missing a third critical piece of the puzzle: job postings.
Simple Show/Hide with JS & CSSI am frequently asked by front end developers what the best technique is for showing and hiding a div within a web page.

The code shown can be used as a starting point, and can be enhanced once you understand the basics.
The 5 Types of Front-End DevelopersI haven’t written anything in a while, so here is a silly post to fill in the time gaps.
