Jan. 3, 2020: What did you learn this week?

It's that time of the week again for the first time this year. So wonderful devs, what did you learn this week? It could be programming tips, career advice etc.

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

Rest, sleep and health is cheap and easily affordable once you decide to shut other things out. As much as I enjoy being online, reading a blog, learning a framwork or catching up on Netflix, sitting in a quiet room with a traditional radio blaring in the background while reading a non technical book, that moment is awesome.

This week I learned GraphQL and Apollo. While it's great for web apps with React (on which I'm working), it certainly has its caveats. Like when you compare a REST method of implementing a simple cache, I think it's easier in REST.

This week I learned CableReady - Real Time progress bar update. I think it was the easiest way to use ActionCable so far.

This week I learned slow progress is better than no progress. Having specific long and short term goals helps when trying to be consistent.

I learned I'm too impulsive for my own good. I've just switched to Debian for the first time and made it not two hours before mindlessly breaking a Don't Break Debian guideline. Gotta slow down, Ben...

This week I continued learning Vue JS. I grasped the concept of making Api calls using axios. I am presently working on a quiz application to add to my portfolio. I also learnt how to use the mounted lifecycle hook as well as the watch property in Vue JS
