Eloquent JavaScript 4th edition is released

If you are new to JavaScript or want to refresh you knowledge with the latest and greatest that is inside the language, I can only recommend to spend some time with the 4th edition of Marijn Haverbeke's book; Eloquent JavaScript.

I’ve read it during the weekend and I have to admit that it revived my interest(love?) in the language.  After spending most of my time using C# and TypeScript it is great to see how far we can get with modern JavaScript.

The book is well written with a lot of examples, handling both basic and more advanced feature of the language. It includes some (small) projects that are fun to build and try and allow you to apply the knowledge you’ve acquired.

So if you want to learn how to write ‘modern’ JavaScript, this is a must read!

Help! I accidently enabled HSTS–on localhost

I ran into an issue after accidently enabling HSTS for a website on localhost. This was not an issue for the original website that was running in IIS and had a certificate configured. But when I tried to run an Angular app a little bit later on http://localhost:4200 the browser redirected me immediately to https://localhost . Whoops! That was not what I wanted in this case. To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
