Jan. 8, 2021: What did you learn this week?

nickytonline profile image Nick Taylor (he/him) ・1 min read

It's that time of the week again folks for the first time in 2021. Last week was time off for me.

Check out last year’s series of “What did you learn this week?”

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.👇👇🏻👇🏼👇🏽👇🏾👇🏿

I'm using node-telegram-bot-api to do the communication part. You could also do that stuff manually, or even setup your own local bot api, see here: core.telegram.org/bots/api

  1. I learned Twilio Studio this week
  2. If learning is realizing that there are advantages and disadvantages on tech stacks, then I learned that too.
  3. Learned 2 colors that go well with brown 😄

Went through cli options for Python interactive shell (see docs.python.org/3/using/cmdline.html) and started using two of them:

-q : don't print version and copyright messages on interactive startup

-O : remove assert and __debug__-dependent statements; add .opt-1 before .pyc extension; also PYTHONOPTIMIZE=x

Also, idle3.9 -d will open IDLE with debugger enabled.

Rollup doesn't really agree with { composite: true } yet.
ts-loader has { projectReferences: true }, and it works.
Webpack 5 still doesn't support ESM out of the box.
node-sass 5 hasn't made great friends with create-react-app.
SnowPack is fast.
Folks are beginning to consider Deno as a target when compiling libraries.

I’m here for the Deadpool meme 🙃.

Seriously though, I’d say this week I finally have a better understanding of CSS property, value and declaration.

It was hands-on-Linux-superuser week for me
I learned to remain calm while working at 10fps on a triple-layered remote desktop connection to a Red Hat server in order to retrieve several logs. I had the chance to review and reinforce my knowledge on Bash stuff like pipes and commands (for example, I did not remember that grep accepts regex, unlike cp).
Also, I learned a simple yet useful linux command to switch from cli to gui when using my Debian machine; startx. Before I'd run systemctl start lightdm but that was easy to forget.

I learned how to develop add-ons for Jira Cloud with React
Installed Notion and customize some templates for my use cases.
Installed WSL2 on my windows machine and then installed zsh with oh-my-zsh and configure them.
it was quite fun 😅
