Hello πŸ‘‹πŸ».

Welcome to my "Week in Review" series. Each week I'm going to share what I discovered, learned, and tested with you.

I spend lots of hours each week in my VS Code. That is why sooner or later I had to customize it to improve my productivity. In this week's "Week in Review" episode the main topic is about VS Studio Code extensions.

Let's jump right into it.


Highlights

According to population.io, 50% of the world's population is now ~50% older and ~50% younger than me. 😝 From now on I'm getting older than the majority of the population. Check it out, it's an interesting website with lots of other insights.

position: sticky played a major part in a recent story for one of our clients. "Position: stuck, and a way to fix it" and "Simple Solution to Prevent Body Scrolling on iOS" were both helpful for realizing the designer's wishes. During work, I remembered reading an interesting article about how to avoid z-index by Daniel Rotter.

Thinking about starting your AWS certification journey? Then Rishab Kumar's article "How you can start your AWS Certifications journey for free πŸ“š" is for you!

Rafflecopter makes it β€œmega simple” to launch and manage a giveaway for any brand, on any website, as much as you want, with no I.T. help required.

Is what they say on their website. I haven't used it (yet), but I will as soon as I start my first giveaway. Have you tried Rafflecopter? Share your thoughts with me, please.

I invested some time and updated my Zoom-Slack-Status-Updater. You can now also set the "Do not disturb" feature on Slack when joining a Zoom meeting.

There are three interesting features I recently discovered in VS Code: Multi-Root Workspaces, Tasks, and Code Tours. I might write an article about each of them in the future, but for now, let's focus on VS Code extensions.

If I could only choose five extensions, I would probably install these:

  • Have you seen the #:~:text= appendix after selecting a result in Google's list of results too? Google Search now highlights website content based on search results. Here is an example link (see the image above) for you. 9To5Google explains the feature in more detail if you are interested.
  • One hot topic for Webpack 5 is Module Federation. I got in touch with it about two months ago when I met Jack. Every now and then we share some thoughts on Twitter and I watched his live stream last week.
