Since the end of 2018, PHP 5.x is no longer being supported. This means in particular that any vulnerability discovered since the beginning of January 2019 is and will remain a zero-day vulnerability - meaning there will be no patch for it.

Nest.js for Node.js applications

By now, Node.js isn’t a small-time-player anymore when it comes to the backend technology. However, the acceptance and distribution of the platform has only increased in recent years, so that more and more developers have to approach this technology. Node.js’ lightweight character is its biggest advantage, but also a disadvantage. Node.js only has a handful of core modules, which can be used to implement even larger web application. But this comes at price, because all the important features, such as routing or a plug-in layer for web applications, must be implemented manually.

And with only a few adaptations many of the here presented practises can also be applied to other solutions as well, for example, subversions.

The Value of Code Quality

A good Code is easy to read and oversee for anyone who isn’t the creator of the code. If it’s easy to understand, it’s much easier to maintain and extend the code. Frank Sons, spokesman at the IPC Conference shows us the value of the code.
