December 18th, 2020: What did you learn this week?

It's that time of the week again.

So wonderful devs, what did you learn this week? It could be programming tips, career advice etc.

Feel free to comment with what you learnt and/or reference your TIL post to give it some more exposure.

Summarize a concept that is new to you.

And remember, if something you learnt was a big win for you, then you know where to drop it as well.👇👇🏻👇🏼👇🏽👇🏾👇🏿

Big win. Danny Devito walking away from a huge explosion

Angular NGRX !! Complete refactor my code and implement a store, now it's very easy to manage the state of my application. I will leave a link if you guys want to download and look for yourselves. I only have the signup and sign in implemented, but from here, you can do everything you want.

I started 30-Days-Of-JavaScript Challenge on GitHub, authored by Asabeneh, I am glad I started because I always procrastinated on it. Hopefully I will get started with Web Development after having all this gotten done. JS made my day, when I discovered Map, Filter and Reduce in it. I love Functional Programming but could not practice it due to steep Haskell learning curve. Now I can rest on it all the way down the month.

This was my short story, I hope all have plunged into endeavors that they love. StaySafe Folks!! Below is a function I refactored from Impertaive style to Declarative one

Not to give up, I think I been holding this idea of just giving up on my blog project. The more im finishing it, the more I realize it doesn't have the stuff I thought I could implement and that once deployed it won't have all the features I had in mind for it, but im trying to not give up, still in that mindset that I can finish it, probably not accordingly to my "higher expectations" or whatever but I guess today im realizing that, and that is o.k. because im not a Software Engineer or Programmer by default, im a Designer, but im doing everything I can in my power to pull this through. Have a great weekend.

I just learned to use 11ty. It looks interesting as it is simpler than Gatsby but still customizable. Currently, I have no plan to use it now as I have no project idea.

I'm getting back into the swing of things with Express and the MERN stack as a whole. I'm contemplating hopping over to Hapi, however, due to a few things it looks like it handles a bit more natively

I'm also planning on redoing the Real World by Thinkster with some refactoring, more efficient DB queries, and Hapi instead of Express as a learning exercise.

E2E tests are useless :
Hard to code, hard to maintain, hard to read... Just stay away from cypress, nightmare and so on...
