It's that time of the week again except we're doing it a little earlier as it's CodeLand and if you attended day 1, you probably learnt a few things. 😺

So wonderful devs, what did you learn this week? It could be programming tips, career advice etc.

An animated stack of books saying "Learn new tings!"

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 learnt about Salary Negotiation, especially, not being the first one to tell the number. There were many great talks at Codeland, but this one stands out for me.


hell yes


This talk was so good!


That we can use html/css in SVG to create animated SVG easily. This trick is really helpful to create awesome Github README.md files.
I made a collection of some cool animated SVG made from codepen here : github.com/Akshay090/svg-banners


I learned how to use the update_attribute in the rails console


I've researched some papers about smart grid security and penetration testing :).

And it can help me to try to integrate some security stuffs for smart grid in Taiwan :)


as I write code in javascript, I often get typeErrors because of undefined when accessing a property in an object. Today, I learn various ways to handle that, so I can deliver my app without worrying of breaking the page.


I learned that the DEV community has pragmatic humanitarian values that closely align with my own. I also learned that I'm not the only one who thinks testing is unreliable and software engineering is as much art as it is science (especially at high abstraction layers).


I learnt a lot about IoT and got a bunch of ideas to do myself. Excited to see how it goes!


I learnt about how to make great quality tech videos with tools like Final Cut Pro. Can’t wait to upload my first !


This Week I learn an animation in Flare and have successfully integrated with a flutter app. I was amazing.💃
