It's that time of the week again. 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.

#todayilearned

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 started learning FastAPI super awesome web framework for Python.

I also learned to deploy multiple servers for building microservices using docker-compose and access them from the same port from the host machine using nginx reverse proxy.

 

Awesome! Really want to see those tutorials if you still have them. o/

 

I learned that sometimes, when you actually put something live for the first time, no matter how many tests youโ€™ve run and scenarios youโ€™ve tried, you will still find some good and some nasty surprises! So be prepared to learn from them and adapt fast!

 

I really started learning TDD thanks to

and the book Mastering React Test-Driven Development. It's really well explained and I am progressively starting to implement what I am learning in my daily work.
 

Learnt practical use of async and defer attribute in script tag.

As we know that Javascript files are main hindrance in page rendering path. But with help of async we tell renderer to load this file asynchronously (means dont wait for anything) and defer refers to execute it after DOM loaded.

Yipeee... #performanceMatters

 

Well I learned one of the interfaces I use for controlling Data in my app is being deprecated and I am having to reprogram a lot of crap. On a good note I feel like as a jvm dev I am finally getting a good grasp on node js. I kinda like it.

 

I learned how to use traefik to setup a reverse proxy and TCP port forwarder for docker containers and internal subnet. It used to be such a pain to write nginx config. Thanks #traefik team.

 

That communication skills are far more important than I use to care about sometimes.

How to typecheck a visual programming graph

 

Learnt how to properly set up storybook alongside typescript + next.js

 

I finally got to deploy my AI project. Though it's still a work in progress. I really feel like this was a big win because it got me up on my feet. Looking forward to an even bigger win next week

 

I started with spring two weeks ago due to the teams needs. This week I have learned the builder pattern, it's clean, it's awesome and it makes me an stronger pro ๐Ÿค“
