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.πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ»πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸ½πŸ‘‡πŸΎπŸ‘‡πŸΏ

Editor guide

Set up the "flutter-web->grpc-web->envoy proxy->grpc->backend in go" for a project.
Learning flutter using Angela Yu's bootcamp course in Udemy. Nearing completion now - building flashchat app using firebase.
Next is the key topic of state management - and I also need to learn BLoC pattern from some other source after this course is done.


I've been learning Jetpack Compose (think Android apps, but built with React and Flutter like unidirectional flow patterns) by going back to the 'basics' and building a to-do list app.
