Sometimes, we need to display the same basic HTML, but with some customized data interspersed here and there. The Handlebars.js library is perfect for this. It takes less than 5 minutes to learn how to use this simple and efficient templating tool.

Sorting an array is one of the most common things we have to do as software engineers. It can also sometimes be the fastest way to calculate a data point–for example, the highest possible product of any three numbers in an array.
Integers, floats, strings, arrays, objects, functions, loops, scope? Piece of cake. Classes? Not so easy.
Understanding what classes are, how they work, and how to incorporate them into your code is critical to developing any working enterprise application.
I’m now also using Ruby again, which has a slightly different flavor.
Here are some of the main syntactical differences between the two languages, in table format.
Let’s say your React application has a smart component (i.e. the component has its own state), and you want a child component to be able to not only access, but actually modify that parent component’s state.
