What to do if you don't feel heard at work

86%

That is the number of people who don't feel heard fairly or equally at their organisation.

And nearly half (47%) claim that underrepresented voices remain undervalued by their employers, according to global research conducted by The Workforce Institute at UKG in 2021.

Many engineers feel they don't have room to share their ideas and opinions. Are you one of them?

Code mods in JavaScript and how to get started creating your own

With the ever-changing landscape in web development, code is forever needing to be updated, whether that be due to updates in frameworks and libraries or new features supported in browsers. Manually dealing with all these updates can often be very error prone and time consuming and that is where code mods/refactoring tools come in. Code mods are scripts that can be run on existing code, templates, styles (pretty much anything with the correct parser and compiler) in order to identify a pattern and then update the code to a new one.

Making your dynamic Ember components work with Embroider

Embroider is the future for building Ember apps. It unlocks features like splitting code per route by statically analyzing your codebase and dependencies. But what if you are using an addon that relies on dynamic components? This blog post will outline how we converted ember-promise-modals to be compatible with Embroider's route-splitting feature. ember-promise-modals is an Ember addon that allows you to dynamically render modals from your javascript code.
