How to get HTTPS working on your local development environment in 5 minutes
"Almost any website you visit today is protected by HTTPS. If yours isn’t yet, it should be. Securing your server with HTTPS also means that you can’t send requests to this server from one that isn’t protected by HTTPS. This poses a problem for developers who use a local development environment because all of them run on http://localhost out-of-the-box."

Understanding RPC Vs REST For HTTP APIs
"For the last few years, whenever somebody wants to start building an HTTP API, they pretty much exclusively use REST as the go-to architectural style, over alternative approaches such as XML-RPC, SOAP and JSON-RPC. REST is made out by many to be ultimately superior to the other “RPC-based” approaches, which is a bit misleading because they are just different. This article discusses these two approaches in the context of building HTTP APIs, because that is how they are most commonly used. REST and RPC can both be used via other transportation protocols, such as AMQP, but that is another topic entirely."

HTTPS Anti-Vaxxers; dispelling common arguments against securing the web
"The web is moving to HTTPS, it has been for many years. We've seen an acceleration in the progress in recent months but we still have a long way to go on our journey of securing all traffic on the internet. Despite the great progress we're making, and all the valid reasons we should continue to do so, there are people that believe having a secure web is not the right thing to do."

The 6-Step "Happy Path" to HTTPS
It's finally time: it's time the pendulum swings further towards the "secure by default" end of the scale than what it ever has before. At least insofar as securing web traffic goes because as of this week's Chrome 62's launch, any website with an input box is now

6 myths of Progressive Web Apps
"Terms like “Progressive Web Apps” (PWAs) are useful to help spread concepts, but they come with a risk of misuse and misunderstanding. As a fairly new and evolving concept, PWAs may be defined and understood differently by different people. In this post, I’ll share some common myths (IMHO) about PWAs."
