What Is Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)? See the MDN Docs: Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a mechanism that uses additional HTTP headers to tell a browser to let a web application running at one origin (domain) have permission to access selected resources from a server at a different origin. A web application makes a cross-origin HTTP request when it requests a resource that has a different origin (domain, protocol, and port) than its own origin.
Yesterday I went to my second MeetUp organized by Softwerkskammer Ruhrgebiet. I met one of the co-organizers, Sandra. And it was totally cool to see another woman there. We also talked a little bit about how unfortunate it is that there are so few women in tech. This Meetup’s talk was about DevOps and APIs. It was interesting to see the current API landscape and its pitfalls and how negligent design can have wide-reaching consequences.
I was at a wonderful tech meetup on Wednesday. This was one of my first meetups and it was so much fun! The organizer was super nice and approachable. I enjoyed the lecture about REST to GraphQL although I would have liked to gain more insight into the topic. But the talk offered a nice first glance at GraphQL and what’s nice about it. For me, it was wonderful to be able to talk about my passion for functional web development, different frameworks, and technologies with people who work in the industry.
