Context Reborn

To all the React developers out there, you must have read this at least once?

“If you want your application to be stable, don’t use context. It is an experimental API and it is likely to break in future releases of React.”

For those who don’t know, earlier this snippet belonged to the official documentation of ReactJS. But now, things have changed 😛 

In this blog post, I’ll be explaining the usage of the stable Context API introduced in React v16.3

Real-time Group Chat using Firebase Realtime Database

Today, let us show you how you (yes, just you!) can add a full-featured chat functionality to your Web, Android, or iOS app, in a day’s work. (Spoiler for the backend developers: there’s no backend code needed. Absolutely. Zero. Backend. Code.)

What is Firebase?

Firebase was initially a product developed by a startup named Envolve Inc., that sought to make an API for embedding real-time chat in mobile and web apps. Long story short, it grew wildly and this lead the developers to separate the chat feature and the underlying real-time engine that powered it; and that was eventually acquired by — none other than — Google.

Google took it to a whole new level by integrating its slew of services and features targeted towards mobile developers and evolved Firebase from just a real-time database to “BaaS” – Backend as a Service. I’ll not go much into this but here’s a screenshot from their page with the full arsenal of the services provided —

The fitter you get, the more money you earn!

Can you believe it that an application exists that rewards you for getting fitter? SweatCoin, an application developed in 2015 tracks your walking and rewards you with coins that can be further converted and used to shop!

It gathers all the steps you have taken and provides you with the ratio of how many steps will convert into sweatcoins which can be later redeemed to shop something.

Life @ Causecode: A Glimse Into Our Workplace

Maintaining an effective culture is so important that it, in fact, trumps even strategy” – Howard Stevenson

It can get a bit difficult to describe a company’s culture, even though one would work in one throughout the day. From team-based culture with employee participation at all levels to traditional and formal management style, every workplace has its own set of values and company culture they follow. Workplace culture is not usually distinguished to being good or bad although, the aspects of your culture are likely to support the progress and success of an organization. It is known to be the character and personality of your company that defines the environment the employees work in. It helps distinguish an organization as it sums up its values, traditions, beliefs, behaviors, and attitude.

A strong culture flourishes with a clear set of values and norms that actively guide the way an organization operates and that is exactly what I learned and observed when I joined the CauseCode team. Being only two months old in this company, I was pleasantly astounded by the workplace culture adopted here that results in high employee involvement, strong internal communication and a healthy level of risk taking which encourages new levels of innovation. The employees here are actively and passionately engaged in their tasks, operating with a sense of confidence and empowerment. Diverse thinking and interests are gracefully understood and respected around here yet the employees possess same work culture values and purposes in order to foster a cohesive community of people within the walls of the organization. I also happened to have observed and experience the constantly motivated enthusiasm environment that is clubbed with strong work ethics. The work environment generated around is healthy, motivated yet a fun environment to work in, in order to increase productivity and make work enjoyable for all the employees.
