I made it to 2021.
Great read. Point 1 is also my favourite, “+” over “Number()” just makes no sense as a choice to me. The latter is ridiculously clear, the former is just ridiculous.
Every book I purchased in 2020 and still haven't read 😂
I started with Vue and worked at start-up where I implemented. I now work a big brand where the architecture is react. Some comments just poo poo on Vue and claim React is better are Devs that haven't built production apps with Vue.
- Single Files Components are great
- In SFC's knowing where methods, state, render life cycles go is just easy to read
- Personally I found global state management in Vuex easier than Redux or Context API
- No jsx weirdness
- scoped sass is easy
- better, easier to read conditions v-if, v-else
- Better built for super modularity
- Better for child components to update parent state
- React hooks, once you use and understand them are nice
- Jobs, jobs, jobs > marketshare
@ara225 had a great question: "What's the best way to represent time spent on open source on a CV or Linkedin?" @fkhadra 's thoughtful advice made me smile.
Hey Anna, it's thanks to my open source project that I've been able to switch from sysadmin to software engineer. So share yours with your network! I've added "Open source developer" in my experience section:

Don't worry you won't appear pretentious. IMHO, open source is about people, the fact that you are willing to share your projects shows how open-minded and collaborative you are.
It doesn't matter if your projects have 1 or 1000 stars. It doesn't mean anything. What matters the most, is that your project provides a solution for a given problem, this is my first criteria when using a library.
See you next week for more great comments ✌
