Where programming, the internet and social media collide.

Leading off our day is a cool article from Fast Co.Exist about a house that costs about $20,000. There is not a lot of detail about the house, but the idea is every cool. At Bothsides of the Table, Mark Suster talks about what will happen in VC  in 2016. At Sudophilosophical, we get an interesting read on the decline of software quality at Apple. The real reason this is interesting is that people tend to worship Apple’s hardware, but this is not the first article railing against the quality of their software in the past year or two.

The top news for the day comes from TechCrunch as they report on the Yahoo layoffs and financial report. This is a damn shame to watch as one of the original internet powers goes through its slow and painful demise. Google Online Security talks about protecting us from false downloads. Check Point gives us some information on a security vulnerability at eBay. At least one of the security posts was good news.

Another day and another security issue. Malwarebytes talks about their anti-malware vulnerability disclosure. This is good from the perspective of openness, but it is always concerning when they talk about it. Johanna Rothman turns burndown charts upside down, and shows us burnup charts. This is an interesting idea on how to report on progress in agile projects. The Chromium blog announced its latest beta with a slew of new features, CSS custom properties, background sync with service workers and some ES2015 features.

It was a slower news day, so today we will focus on some trends. First, there has been a lot of discussion about the JavaScript ecosystem and the proliferation of libraries. At shruubi, they talk about JavaScript fatigue, or more importantly, the exhausting rate of change of the “best practices” for various libraries. On The Code Experience, they talk about this concept but focusing on React. Yes, even React, which is fairly new, has seen rapid change in its accepted best practices. With the focus on JavaScript, we continue the trend with an article on debugging Node.js in Chrome DevTools, written by Matt DesLauriers.

Starting our week, we have an article from the Smithsonian about Babylonians using geometry centuries earlier than previously thought. This is just a cool tidbit that you don’t run across every day. In the “another day another security problem” category, fin1te explains the findings of an XSS bug on Facebook. Google announced the open source release of Seesaw, a scalable load balancer.
