How not to learn TypeScript

“TypeScript and I are never going to be friends”. Oh wow, how often have I heard this phrase? Learning TypeScript, even in 2022, can be frustrating it seems. And for so many different reasons. People who write Java or C# and find out things are working differently than they should. Folks who have done JavaScript most of their time and are being screamed at by a compiler. Here are some mistakes I’ve seen people do when getting started with TypeScript.

Being the DRI of Your Career

At DuckDuckGo, there’s an expression: “You are the DRI of your career” (DRI: Directly Responsible Individual). I like this, both as an individual who has always felt like the DRI of my own career, and I like it as a manager because I think it makes the boundaries of what you can and can’t do for people clear.

Thanks for this week's list @martinkr ! I found myself going 😆 lol when I read this post (cate.blog/2021/09/20/being-the-dri...). If we should expect less from jobs , it's probably not the job's fault.

Workplaces leverage on as many people and systems as possible.

The trick is in finding new frontiers to explore and new opportunities ✨ for collaboration.
