Completed Hacktoberfest 2019 πŸŽ‰βœ¨πŸ¦„

2019 has been the first time I participated in Hacktoberfest, it was a lot of fun participating in the open-source contribution and it still feels it's the beginning and don't stop contributing.

I came to know about Hacktoberfest by my friend last year and this year I came across a twitter post which reminded me about Hacktoberfest.

My contribution have been pretty diverse from discord-bot to building functional libraries but it has been a lot of fun to get to know about cool projects and awesome developers and most important that I am also a part of those projects now.

One of the key thing which I love doing is building well architecture code-base which results in high scalability as you can painlessly add new features to it and test it, so all the projects I contributed have been very well documented + following clean code guidelines with very good tooling.

It's okay to spend some time choosing right project for you, as your developer experience will depend on that, and enjoy contributing.

If you are bored coding so long on same project, you should definitely try open source it will be a charm.

Happy Coding 😎.

11 Tips That Make You a Better Typescript Programmer

Type is an everyday concept to programmers, but it’s surprisingly difficult to define it succinctly. I find it helpful to use Set as a conceptual model instead.

#2 Understand declared type and narrowed type

One extremely powerful typescript feature is automatic type narrowing based on control flow. This means a variable has two types associated with it at any specific point of code location: a declaration type and a narrowed type.

#3 Use discriminated union instead of optional fields
