Day 24 of 100 Days of Code & Scrum: React Framework for Production!

Hello there, everyone!

I'd be lying to all of you if I said that this Monday was a great start to my week! It was definitely on the rough side with personal/family issues getting in the way.

However, I managed to commit to the requirements of the challenge! I finished the official Next.js tutorial and I am 3/4ths of the way through Scrum and XP from the Trenches.

Anyway, let's move on to my daily report!

Yesterday

I planned for what I'll be doing this week. I decided I'll be focusing on Next.js and Scrum.

Today

Here are the things I learned and worked on today:

Next.js

  • I learned about the two forms of rendering in Next.js:
    • Static Generation - the page HTML is generated during build time.
    • Server-side Rendering - the page HTML is generated during each request.
  • I read about getStaticProps, getStaticPaths, and getServerSideProps.
    • getStaticProps - fetch data at build time (static generation).
    • getStaticPaths - specify dynamic routes to prerender pages based on data (static generation).
    • getServerSideProps - fetch data on each request (server-side rendering).
  • I learned how to do dynamic routing in Next.js.
  • I read about how Next.js handles API support.

Scrum

  • I continued to read Scrum and XP from the Trenches.
  • It is best to estimate using man-days instead of hours.
  • no team member has complete focus, the best realistic expectation is a focus factor of 70%.
  • in most cases, it might be best to shorten the time to do manual testing, over taking a long time to establish automated tests.
  • I learned a lot about Extreme Programming.

At least, I managed to get through today and still commit to my goals. I hope that I manage to make up for it on the rest of the days in this week.

Have a great Monday, everyone!

This post blew up on DEV in 2020:

js visualized

πŸš€βš™οΈ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! πŸ₯³

Happy coding!
