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.


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

Editor guide

I've learned that:

import requests

response = requests.get(url, timeout=None)

doesn't have the same meaning as:

import httpx

response = httpx.get(url, timeout=None)

If you want the same behavior with httpx than the requests code, you need to do the following:

import httpx

timeout = httpx.Timeout(connect_timeout=None, read_timeout=None, write_timeout=None)
response = httpx.get(url, timeout=timeout)

I learned some basics about webdesign theory and redesigned my portfolio (biehler-josef.de). The only thing that is missing yet, is optimizations for mobile phones. But I think, that is something I can do next week :-)
