The basic idea is that if you can detect an operation has already been previously completed for a specific set of input values, [...]
I believe it is our responsibility as designers and developers to both advocate for best practices and encourage others to make the leap to using modern features for a modern web. At the same time, we need to do our best to avoid leaving users with older browsers behind. Polyfills – a term coined by [...]
Today we’ll be taking a look at the decorator pattern, a structural pattern that promotes code reuse and is a flexible alternative to subclassing. This pattern is also useful for modifying existing systems where you may wish to add additional features to objects without the need to change the underlying code that uses them. Traditionally, [...]
