TAG Team Talk https://www.tag1consulting.com/ en A deep dive into ReasonML: Building resilient apps with high stability https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/deep-dive-reasonml-building-resilient-apps-high-stability <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>ReasonML is a functional programming language that has built-in React support, JavaScript-like syntax, and a highly efficient toolchain optimized for code management and compilation. With seamless interoperability with existing JavaScript and originally written by Facebook, ReasonML is quickly becoming a language of choice not only for functional programming enthusiasts well-versed in OCaml but also for React architects and developers who need better state handling and more robust typing. Already leveraged by mission-critical applications at organizations as diverse as Sotheby's, McKinsey, and the Coda blockchain, ReasonML is an optimal choice for developers who need typed data integrity at every point in the application and a more failsafe approach to React. Today, ReasonML developers are using the technology to alleviate the pain of a hard-to-refactor React codebase, overly lengthy ES6 and TypeScript compilation times, and the "overpowered" nature of TypeScript as a source of choice paralysis and code complexity. In this episode of Tag1 Team Talks, Patrick Stapfer (Lead React Developer at Tag1 and Member of the Reason Association) sits down with Michael Meyers (Managing Director at Tag1) and your host and moderator Preston So (Editor in Chief at Tag1 and Senior Director, Product Strategy at Oracle) for a deep dive into...</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/deep-dive-reasonml-building-resilient-apps-high-stability" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/preston-so" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">preston</span></span> <span>Wed, 05/27/2020 - 05:30</span> Wed, 27 May 2020 12:30:44 +0000 preston 172 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Building an offline e-learning application with speech recognition https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/offline_elearningapp <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Even in the best of times, working from home can be challenging. Nowadays, working from home with children in tow, presently necessary for countless millions around the world, can be nearly impossible. As our habits and practices evolve to embrace our new reality of social distancing and home isolation, our thoughts increasingly turn to how best to keep our children educated and engaged at the same time. Unfortunately, e-learning solutions that offer distance and virtual learning solutions comprise only part of the solution for parents with children to homeschool. But as it turns out, crafting your own e-learning solution and virtual curriculum for homeschooling your children doesn't have to be a daily chore. In fact, in a mere hundred lines of code, you can build an offline e-learning application with the SpeechRecognition API and speech-to-text transcription to help your child with language acquisition.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/offline_elearningapp" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/preston-so" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">preston</span></span> <span>Wed, 05/20/2020 - 07:50</span> Wed, 20 May 2020 14:50:22 +0000 preston 165 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Day in the life of a Core Maintainer & notes on Drupal 9 readiness https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/day-life-core-maintainer-notes-drupal-9-readiness <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>What is the day-to-day life of a Drupal core committer like?

The WordPress Gutenberg team has been working with Tag1 Consulting and the community of Yjs, an open-source real-time collaboration framework, to enable collaborative editing on the Gutenberg editor. Currently an experimental feature that is available in a Gutenberg pull request, shared editing in Gutenberg portends an exciting future for editing use cases beyond just textual content.<div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/yjs-gutenberg-TTT-011" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/preston-so" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">preston</span></span> <span>Wed, 02/19/2020 - 08:53</span> Wed, 19 Feb 2020 16:53:01 +0000 preston 131 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Claro - the new Drupal Admin UI - Tag1 TeamTalk #010 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/claro-drupal-adminui-010 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item">An effective administrative interface is table stakes for any content management system that wishes to make a mark with users. Claro is a new administration theme now available in Drupal 8 core thanks to the Admin UI Modernization initiative. Intended to serve as a logical next step for Drupal's administration interface and the Seven theme, Claro was developed with a keen eye for modern design patterns, accessibility best practices, and careful analysis of usability studies and surveys conducted in the Drupal community.<div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/claro-drupal-adminui-010" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/preston-so" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">preston</span></span> <span>Wed, 02/12/2020 - 05:18</span> Wed, 12 Feb 2020 13:18:58 +0000 preston 128 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Yjs Offline Apps with IndexedDB - Tag1 TeamTalk #009 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/yjs-indexeddb-TTT-009 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item">What happens when you have a connection that isn't working, but you have a mission-critical document that you need to collaborate on with others around the world? The problem of peer-to-peer collaboration in an offline environment is becoming an increasingly pressing issue for editorial organizations and enterprises. As we continue to work on documents together on flights, trains, and buses, offline-first shared editing is now a base-level requirement rather than a pipe dream. Yjs, an open-source framework for real-time collaboration, integrates gracefully with IndexedDB, the local offline-first database available in browsers, to help developers easily implement offline shared editing for their organization's needs. Paired in turn with other technologies like WebRTC, a peer-to-peer communication protocol, and Yjs connectors, a graceful architecture is possible that not only enables offline shared editing for a variety of use cases beyond textual content but also makes the developer experience as straightforward as possible.<div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/yjs-indexeddb-TTT-009" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/preston-so" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">preston</span></span> <span>Wed, 02/05/2020 - 14:13</span> Wed, 05 Feb 2020 22:13:04 +0000 preston 123 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Decoupled Drupal - Strengths and Weaknesses -Tag1 Team Talk #008 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/decoupled-drupal-strengths-and-weaknesses-tag1-team-talk-008 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item">Decoupled Drupal has been a trending topic for years in the Drupal community as well as the larger CMS landscape. What do some of the pioneers of the decoupled Drupal phenomenon have to say about what's possible today for decoupled Drupal and what's in store for practitioners? From GraphQL v4, to live preview with Gatsby, to Web Components browser support, innovation in the Drupal community is now quickly challenging some of our initial assumptions and visions for the future.
