Doing some #reactjs
work and classes today 👨🏻💻🔥 I also want to try and solve some @hackerrank
problems later on as well 😅 what are your weekend plans so far ?
Finally the weekend is here.
What's your plan for the weekend?
What are your thoughts on Unit testing and UI testing?
I spent like the last week or so working on a much smaller project that demonstrates asynchronously fetching images via a API response using the NASA image search.
I was feeling like I should start to build up some kind of portfolio on my GitHub with public projects and so I’ve kept the project fairly simple in terms of complexity and focus on “good practice” and keeping a maintainable project structure.
I also then went on to include Unit tests and UI tests for the project. I found that trying to implement Unit tests became difficult after I had written some for networking, there wasn’t many other features and it felt quite limited.
With UI tests, I got through quite a few as I know exactly what to expect and they’re fairly simple. However, in my opinion I find it really hard to justify implementing this in terms of the reward vs the amount of time it takes to write. Had this of been a real world project I would have only used unit tests and left out UI.
It's not the hottest topic to talk about but big shout out to turbo tax for making our lives easier, a quick tip for all fresh college grads and even people with internship turbo tax makes filing taxes a thing of the past, it's super simple and you can save a ton of time and money rather than going to your traditional accountant, and sometimes you might even end up getting a healthier return🤑 through these sites so I would highly recommend trying it out.
One interesting fact, @intuit
motto had a major realignment to design first philosophy and helping his customers save time. Also the ReadyReturn fight is quite interesting .
Feel to dm me if you have any questions, more than happy to help
🔥Ｕｌｔｒａ Ｗｉｄｅ Ｌｉｆｅ🔥
I have been talking about trying out an ultra wide display, so that I can finally give more accurate feedback on the notorious ultra wide vs dual display questions you’ve been sending me all the time 😅😂 Well special thanks to @lg_tech.it
for sending over the LG #34WK95U
for a review. I’ve had my eyes on this monitor since it was released, and I think it’s currently the best ultra-wide in the market for creators and professionals 📺
I’ll be giving constant updates in the upcoming posts so make sure to stay tuned. Lastly, I just want to mention that even though LG was kind enough to send over this monitor, they wanted no control over my posts. So all you hear is my personal opinion and experience. Just trying to keep as transparent as possible ✌🏻😅🔥
Day 8 of React JS
Had some issue rendering local image when passing the value from JSON. Figured after spending couple of hours on it 🚀
Also deployed the application on git pages which was the fundamental requirement for the app.
How was your day? 🤔
New renovated setup✌🏽 a lot of awesome stuff happening right now in my daily life🤘
Day 7 of React JS
Wrote some logic on how to render multiple components and then dynamically change value, which seems to be easy but consumed my whole day. Productive day though. 🚀
How was your day? 🤔
I made it a habit of creating goals for myself. These are both personal and professional goals to achieve each year. Last year, I focus mainly on trying to write more. I did this mainly by writing two blog posts a week for my website. This year, I plan to focus on three goals for the year. These are to document my projects & my process, feature more video related content, and network with fellow creatives and small businesses. I tend to choose goals based on being new to me and on what I could improve upon.
Day 40 #100daysofcode
Wait, WHAT? No REACTJS or VUEJS ?
📍 I'm back home! So I can now work on stuff again!
📍I decided to build my portfolio page from the ground up! So I started today to look for inspiration.
📍 I started coding without any framework! Just plain CSS and HTML! In the end, this should just be a static page with some links!
📍 For that, you don't need a JS library. you just need plain old good HTML and CSS!
When was the last time when you did ? #buildupdevs
Pushed a temporary fix to the portfolio yesterday, and going to finish up a small #reactjs
project which uses Firebase Auth and DB. Then time to check a few more tasks off the list 😅🔥👨🏻💻
Happy Monday 🎉
Definitely a productive Monday. 🚀Solved a problem in one of the react app where needed to create nested object after parsing from api and then render component.🔥 Also read about the importance of using keys in the list. Will try to implement it tomorrow.🔥 How was your day?
Feels good to be back 🥳🥳
I know have been MIA lately. I have been concentrating on myself and my health for the past two months, I think I needed a break from social media because it was causing me to be less and less productive everyday. It became hard for me to cut through the constant noise created by so many platforms and I think taking some time off of it and really enjoying the people around me and "living in the moment" gave me a better sense of how to properly use these tools. I have been guilty of having 5 hr screen time on my phone and easily justifying that by telling myself I am doing something productive of Instagram or YouTube but honestly it's just an excuse. Scrolling through insta for an hour is not productive nor is watching YouTube for an hour so I would suggest looking at your screen time and really stepping back to think what are your priorities, I was fortunate enough to travel for a month during this time but now I am back and brushing up on my interview skills .
Can't wait to share my travel pictures 😁😁
As always Happy Monday and stay smiling, p.s feels great to talk to you guys again 🤪🎉
👨🏻💻🔥 Ｈａｐｐｙ Ｍｏｎｄａｙ 🔥👨🏻💻
Dealt with a bunch of personal stuff over the weekend and got some long overdue todos out the way 😅😅 I’ve also noticed that I put away my portfolio project on the shelf for a while, and haven’t been putting recent work to the live one either. So I’m trying to pick up the slack, and at least update the current one this week. It’s looking like a busy week already, and I’m hoping you got a good start off 👊🏻💯🔥
Do you use an external keyboard when you work on a laptop?
for more setup inspiration
Day 6 of React JS 🚀 Learn about the dynamic url in react and how to handle them via routes.
Next startwd learning about redux and the difference between redux and state, when to use redux and about actions and reducers
Need to do more hands on then watching tutorials and reading because if you don't implement you never really know how to make it work.
What did you do today?
Beauty is in the details 👌🏼
As a Software Engineer, Graphic Designer, Music Producer, Worship Pastor, and Business Owner, I am always doing a million things at once! Because of that, I need a set up that can handle whatever I throw at it. So, Here is my New Home Desk Set Up! It is designed so that I can just come home, plug in a couple cables and be READY TO GO! It works with both my MacBook Pro and Razer Blade Stealth! .
Remember, it’s not about how much stuff you got, it’s about what you can do with what you have 💭
How do you choose which language to start?
This is actually something I’ve written about before but I got a lot of questions today regarding this topic.
I honestly believe you shouldn’t spend very long thinking about this. Purely because of how much easier it is to bridge the gap between two languages once you already know one.
Programming requires logical thinking and for you to understand the syntax. Once you have the logic, you can essentially utilise documentation, Google it or watch YouTube to learn. And no, this isn’t cheating btw, I’ve had someone ask me that before 😂
It’s really as simple as if you’re a beginner, choose your platform either Android, iOS or Windows otherwise if you’re not a beginner you can consider cross platform using either Flutter, React native or Xamarin.
Overall my advice is just choose one and start, if you don’t like it switch. It’s really that simple and you shouldn’t feel any pressure for this question.
I’ve recently been listening to audio of Pando Monthly interviews from about 8 years ago, with entrepreneurial CEO’s of companies like Instagram, Twitter, Dropbox, Airbnb etc during a period where the company was just starting out/fairly low user base.
What I found so interesting is to hear them talk about the company, what kind of path they wanted to go down and to then see how the company is actually performing now.
One of the main things that I noticed all of the speakers had in common, is the way they all talk about the future of the company. They all tend to be very aligned with how the company is actually being run today and to me, this shows the importance of focusing on the product and the purpose behind it.
I would also really recommend watching these videos if you have some time, a lot of them seem to be more relevant than you would think for a video of that age. I’ve also picked up a lot of really good tips on how I can actually improve a product, get ideas, develop the ideas and make sure I can stay focused with projects that I am working on.
Cold Brew && React kinda day 👨🏻💻☕️ hope you guys have a great weekend ✌🏻🔥💯
has published any press release about the outage yesterday 🤔 They claim it wasn’t a DDoS attack, so I’m curious to see what the issue was. Do you have any ideas? 😅😂
I just received a postal mail and I was surprised with this awesome gift. It's custom brew beer from HelloWorld.rs. Its a job searching site for developers here in Serbia. They have sent me an email for feedback on their site last week and I replayed with some suggestions because why not and the people who are working there are just amazing. One of the best and funniest newsletters I'm receiving.
Still looking for a job since I don't want to work as a freelancer anymore and if you are from #slovenia
and you need a web developer, send me a message. I'm willing to move there ASAP :)
How is your week so far??
Day 2 of React
Learned what's the difference between link and route. Also when to use navlink. Excited for upcoming training and practice.
What did you do today?
So before everyone gets started on the heated Windows vs Mac vs Linux argument, I want to say that it honestly depends on your personal preferences. I’ve been a Mac user for the past 8 years or so, and not because it’s the a superior operating system or anything, but simply because I wanted to.
Now, there have been times where it got frustrating —especially in college, when we were required to develop in environments that were available only for Windows. Now being somewhat technically capable, I managed to work around those issues and I still do. But I can’t assume that everyone has the same skillset and knowledge that I have. So when that’s the case, my first recommendation has always been @parallelsmac
. It allows you to create a virtual machine on your laptop where you can run Windows natively, and it does it in a very user-friendly manner.
Now this is not a sponsored post or anything, but I just wanted to mention it just in case there is someone out there who just moved to a macOS system, and been struggling with running their tools.
