In my previous blog post (part 1) about Angular Directives, I provided you with an introduction into what Directives are and how to use them. The short recap is that you can use Directives to add markers to a DOM element and then tell the AngularJS compiler to add behavior or modify that element. In this blog post, I will discuss the two remaining directive types (class and comment).

In this short blog I will show you how to manage a Docker container using Vagrant. Since version 1.6 Vagrant supports Docker as a provider, next to existing providers for VirtualBox and AWS. With the new Docker support Vagrant boxes can be started way faster. In turn Vagrant makes Docker easier to use since its runtime configuration can be stored in the Vagrantfile. You won't have to add runtime parameters on the command line any time you want to start a container. Read on if you like to see how I create a Vagrantfile for an existing Docker image from Quinten's Docker cookbooks collection.
This post would look into how to tackle and debug issues in scenarios where they only occur in production (or other remote environment) but not in development environment. As anybody who has been in this kind of situation would acknowledge, trying to pinpoint the cause of these kind of "issues" might quickly end up being a practice at taking shots in the dark: a very time-consuming and inefficient process.
It was this kind of situation I recently found myself, where, I had to rectify certain issues that were occurring in the production environment but could not be reproduced on the development machine.
Fortunately enough, the said issues could be reproduced in the testing environments (which is as close to the production environment as possible). But having the issues reproducible in the test environment was good In that it confirms the issues needed to be fixed, but it was of little help in actually tracking the issues down, finding the cause and fixing it. Relying just on log outputs was not enough...What if I could debug the test environment from my machine?
In one of my recent projects, I had to deal with the validation of epubs. Unfortunately there are not many references on this topic on the internet. Therefore I thought it would be good to write a small blog entry about the validation of an epub file. In the first part I want to explain in short what an epub file is and show what issues and problems may occur when dealing with them. The second part is a manual on how to solve these issues and problems. If you have any questions do not hesitate to leave a comment. Read the rest of this entry »
In 2 days Trifork will be at the famous GOTO conference in Amsterdam, only a few days left to sign up! End of June Allard Buijze will give a training on the Axon framework, there are only a few seats available. Finally beginning of July Frans Van Buul will give a training on AngularJS. Many other events, trainings and projects are coming ahead, stay tuned! And enjoy reading!
GOTO Amsterdam the conference is in less than one week and we cannot wait. So we believe it's time for our developers at Trifork to share with us which talks they would like to attend and why. So we asked them the question and here you can find their answers. Maybe you will get inspired as well!
"I'm looking forward to see Juergen Hoeller's talk on Spring 4 on Java 8. How are the cool new language features leveraged by my favorite framework? It's java.time for some lambda expressions and method references in my tool set.I'm sure this talk will answer this question and help me boost my performance in future projects."

Trifork hosted a GOTO Night in Amsterdam about the programming language Erlang, specifically why it was one of the driving factors for the success of WhatsApp. In May we had our first AngularJS training in NL which was a great success as it was completely sold out. The next training is planned in July and you can register for it on the website. Many other events, trainings and projects are coming ahead. Enjoy reading!
With an average of 10 new registrations per week for GOTO Amsterdam we are expecting a bigger event than ever. There is still a chance to attend!
GOTO is less than 4 weeks away! Here are 3 good reasons why you should not miss the conference:
- You can attend the Conference Party on Thursday evening with "Meta-eX - the music of code". Live Coding. Live Synths. Live Music. Meta-eX is a live coding DJ duo formed by Jonathan Graham & Sam Aaron, who is speaking at GOTO Amsterdam.
- And last but not least, you have the opportunity to attend presentations of impressive speakers such as:
|Dan North||Rod Johnson||Georges Saab||Linda Rising||Chad Fowler||Kevlin Henney|
