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

  4. Learning lumen laravel register api + jwt
  5. Tailwind.css its very easy instalation using nuxt.js, next project i will use it, hope i can mastering tailwind.css + nuxt.js

This week I learnt.
How to hook up redux to the create-react-app boiler plate.
How to hook up redux form to the above application.
And how to connect that to thunk and execute an async method to make an API call.

So it's been a good week.


I'm using the weekend to finish up learning about NPM, Babel and Webpack and I've learned about Github, connecting them to existing projects for easy commits and how you create pull requests and issues. (Using the extension on VS code.)


For me, it's been philosophical learning.

Changing and improving the way you talk/write can have a considerable impact on how you're perceived. I've started taking writing more seriously lately, and the outcome has been quite good. My latest posts have gotten a lot more attention and love.

I might even make a post talking about my experience and some tips on how to improve your writing skills, although I'm by no means an expert on the subject.


That sounds like it would make for an awesome post.

You did it!

Hmmm, haven't made my first post on DEV yet. What if I started with how to create a Todo List API using dotnetcore/C#? Would that be lame?

It wouldn't be lame at all. Go for it! Scott Hanselman thanks you in advance for the amazing post you will write.
