It's that time of the week again, just a day early. I'm off tomorrow and Monday so posting this now.

So wonderful devs, what did you learn this week? It could be programming tips, career advice etc.

Feel free to comment with what you learnt and/or reference your TIL post to give it some more exposure.


Summarize a concept that is new to you.

And remember, if something you learnt was a big win for you, then you know where to drop it as well.๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฟ

I learnt that Docker is a way to solve building problem on deploying to Heroku; while having standards for Google Cloud Run / AWS / Qovery.

Docker also works well in Monorepo, with Multi-stage build.


I learnt how to use mocha and chai with TypeScript and they are really cool together.

I've also resolved an issue with my library and NodeJS that had some problems with imports, ES6 imports are not welcome in Node yet, I had to switch to CommonJS imports.

This week I made particles emitters too, design the configuration was the hardest part!


React.js and Redux :) You can see the app I built quotes-app-react.firebaseapp.com/


I am learning Go with the new Frontend Masters course.


Go go go! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

1st place in Mariokart


I'm still learning Redux. I found this tutorial that I want to go through today, if I have time.


Thatโ€™s the best place to start. Dan explains things really well.


This week I learned how to implement and work with TailwindCSS.


I learned Rust web dev in Actix framework.


That's awesome! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Yes, that's awesome!

Hello, I spent this week writing a cache library that I haven't finished before. This is a lightweight general-purpose IOS cache library written by swift 5. If you like, you can try to recommend my cache library to some of your friends who are IOS users. This cache library is very convenient to use. I think someone may like it. Thank you
