Comparing programming languages and frameworks

  • For some general framework overviews and comparison, make sure to check out my elevator pitches page.
  • A great resource for comparing across languages and frameworks is the TodoMVC approach. The idea is to improve upon the "hellow world" baseline (echoing out a string) and have the baseline be a simple todo tracker page. Then, have complete code examples for each language / framework.

    • There is the original TodoMVC, which covers JavaScript frameworks, here
    • There is also Todo-Backend, which covers different options and languages for building backends, such as .NET Core
  • NARKOZ/hacker-scripts

    • A collection of the same scripts (based on a famous story) written in multiple different languages
    • Similar to TodoMVC, but even more succinct - each script is simplistic and short, so it is good way to compare across languages
  • gothinkster/realworld

    • A "real-world" example app (Medium.com clone) for any combination of popular front-end and back-end stacks.
    • You can mix and match front-end with back-end

Books

  • Web Dev

    • Principles of Object-Oriented Programming in JavaScript, by Nicholas Zakas - Link, Amazon

      • Covers a lot of important fundamentals, but also is written in an extremely approachable way - makes a good refresher / reference as well
    • "You Don't Know JS" - Link

      • Open-source book series by Kyle Simpson aka getify
    • JavaScript for Impatient Programmers by Dr. Axel Rauschmayer (aka 2ality)

  • Electronics / engineering

    • Practical Electronics for Inventors, by Scherz and Monk - Amazon

      • This book is awesome; the ultimate condensed electronics guide and reference.
      • Written so that not much, if any, prior knowledge of electronics is necessary: A-Z is covered in varying levels of detail
      • Great for getting started with building random hobby projects (Arduino, etc.)
