Backend Development is software development on the server. This is where most of the logic of a website or application happens, connections to databases, controlling data access, and more.
In November 2020, I posted a message in the JAM Stack community slack that in December, I was open to more project work. I had been getting a little slow and wanted to make sure the next month was going to be busy.
Later that day, I got some responses from the Rudderstack team asking me if I would be willing to work on a plugin for Gatsby that would make it easy for people to track events on their Gatsby frontends.
I was excited about the opportunity, but I was a bit nervous, knowing that I had no previous experience even remotely like what the team was asking for.View more details
My question is this. Why are we making it easy for developers to not learn API development?
I'm building an application that display's customer orders. I want my users to be able to order orders by Customer name if they would like. In order to do this, I added a select statement to the query when the request included an orderBy="customer" key and value.
Often, you will come into circumstances where you need to append an attribute to a model, or calculate some piece of data from multiple database columns when returning data from your Laravel application. In Laravel, it is easy to make general calculations on single columns, like summing, or getting an average, but when you need to calculate data on say, 2 or more columns you may need to do some raw sql queries.
