What you learning about this weekend? 🧠

Hey hey 👋

What are you learning on this weekend?

Whether you're sharpening your JS skills, making PRs to your OSS repo of choice 😉, sprucing up your portfolio, or writing a new post here on DEV, we'd like to hear about it.

Have an awesome weekend! Learn, take breaks, and have fun.

A clip from Schitt's Creek... a woman says "You learn something new every day" with a smug grin and then winks at whoever she is talking to.

Figuring out how to take what could potentially be 25+ API calls and 25+ database queries down to only 4 API calls (maybe even fewer!) and 10 database queries. I think I can get the queries down to 4 or less though.

It did, thank you! I haven't "finished" it yet... but I figured out how to do it at least.

I'll mostly be bodging my way through some more #AdventOfCode puzzles in a new language (for me, one of the oldest in real time): Scheme..

With luck I'll slowly gain a good understanding of Scheme and know when it could be used effectively elsewhere!

It sounds to me like you're scheming. 😈

From The Simpsons, Mister Burns is twiddling his fingers together as if he is "scheming"

Haha, hope it went well for ya, Phil! 🙌

Trying to work on local/remote sync, using RxDB/Dexie and Supabase. First, trying to understand it in a vanilla js context, then working up to using that RxDB reactive dataset as a Svelte store.

My little button-head is woozy...

Hahaha! I can imagine, that sounds like quite the challenge.

Learning about Computer Networking via CCNA, and diving straight into a project.

I think I'll add on to my documentation project on things I discover with JavaScript, CSS, HTML, etc...
