The new JAX Magazine – Rust 1.0, open-source testing tools and more

Coman Hamilton

Git problems, developer CVs, testing tips and more: this biggest ever JAX Magazine issue is bursting with tips, tricks and trend commentaries for the enterprise developer – free as always.

What makes a good programmer?

Every developer will give you a different answer. But assuming you already have a combination of talent, education and fortunate social circumstances, what else can guarantee you a bright career in IT? Is there some combination of special ingredients needed for a CV to impress employers?

If you ask Shutterstock’s Director of Engineering, the one thing that really counts is real-life development experience. “To gain real world skills, developers have to create and take control of their own curriculum,” writes Sandeep Chouksey in this latest issue, explaining exactly where it is that straight-out-of-uni programmers can begin finding gems for their CV.

Rust 1.0, open-source testing tools and more

In keeping with this line of thought, we’ve got an especially high amount of IT experiences for you in this JAX Magazine issue. First up, Rust team member Huon Wilson is taking us on a tour of the new release of Rust 1.0, still fresh off the shelves. In the testing section, Claire Fautsch and Daniel Witkowski are walking us through automated end-to-end testing and handy open-source testing tools.

Finally, we’ve also got an overview of the big JavaScript frameworks for anyone that wants to look beyond the horizon of AngularJS – all in all, plenty of places to continue gaining new experiences.
