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.
And remember, if something you learnt was a big win for you, then you know where to drop it as well.👇👇🏻👇🏼👇🏽👇🏾👇🏿

Learned GitHub Actions and integrated it into one of my projects!
PS: Article soon 👀
On my to-do list.
Do it! It's totally worth it.
💯 I definitely did the same thing!
This week I learnt about HSL colors, I always used RGB in these years but programmatically HSL is really nice.
With HSL I created these with a little code session
And I learned how to draw triangles 🤣
I Started using ESLint and Prettier too, never used them, really useful
Github Actions ♥️
That's awesome! 🔥
apdoesn't do much by itself, you have to combine it with fantasy-land/map. People actually do this on a helper function they call
liftA2(yes there is a
liftA4and so on).
The closest thing to a useful real world example I could think of was something like this.
This should show.
So I took a regular function that takes two arguments (
whoami) and made it work in the context of a
Promise, this what they call
A2part is because it works with two arguments (I guess). Now, for this pattern to be actually useful you would have to design your own data structure that follows some of the rules in fantasy-land.
My company is migrating from GSuite to Outlook (😞) so this week I learned a lot about Outlook's APIs and how they differ from GSuite's APIs.
What are your thoughts on the Outlook API? Is it easier? Harder?
Trying to move from a front end developer to a full stack developer. Started to learn nodejs from udemy.
udemy.com/course/the-complete-node... this is the course that am following.
Please do suggest some noob project to do after the course and what are the other things to learn,?
Finally started working with animations on Flutter, and really like the feel of completion they give to the app. Also learned to blur widgets and listen to user location changes.
Been getting back motivation for Flutter lately 👌🏼
Continued this week learning Node via Wes Bos' learnnode.com/ course. I am a longtime PHP/Drupal dev who has been diving into JAM Stack to see what it's all about. I became fascinated enough with it to do a talk on "All the Ways! [to build a website]" alltheways.website
There sure are lots of ways these days! A bit hard to decide which is "best" for what: Next, Gatsby, Express, straight React to an API, etc. + lots more. ;-)
@wesbos has some awesome courses. Good choice! 😉
I have learned to use Behat with Symfony 5, Mink, and Behat API Extension.
It was very hard because I haven't used BDD before and I had a lot of problems. Incorrect Gerkin, misconfiguring Behat. It took me almost two weeks and I still need to cover a lot of things. The next step is to figure out how to organize tests. Because I am testing API request-response with Behat, I need to test the frontend part with Behat and Selenium or Mink, and also I need to make coverage test 100% with PhpUnit. A lot of work to be done. Actually it really scares me. It's an adventure. Wish me luck.
Recently unemployed so a bunch of spare time to work on things.
I decided one day to make a static website engine - actually learned a bunch as I was creating Saishō. Regex, caching files, more about PHP, and so on.
That Makefiles can invoke other "shells" so you can write inline ruby, python, etc.
Learning how to setup our own F-Droid app repository and white label Android F-Droid client. Really an amazing project!
React.useEffect cleanup functions, I needed them to clean some event listeners.
I learned about virtual dom and jsx
First time with Google Cloud: Could Functions, Pub/Sub, Scheduler. :)
