I attended my first GoLang Essentials course on LinkedInLearning.

Being a FE Dev I am delighted to see the power of Go and motivated to do some experiments with it.

I hope one day I would be able to write my serverless functions in Go as well

Is git stash different from git stash save?

With git stash save you are able to add a message to your stash, almost like a commit message. It would like something like git stash save "stashing my changes". This makes it easier to know which stash is which when you run git stash list. You can then pick which stash to use with the git stash apply command. You would just need to provide which stash from the list using syntax like git stash apply stash@{2}. The 2 is the id of the stash, which you can see when you run git stash list.

I learned that I enjoy take-home assessments way too much. Also, Ruby on Rails! I wish I had picked it up earlier. It has everything.

Today I learned that GitHub does not use the PR title as commit message (when using “Squash and merge”) if there is only one commit in the PR (it uses the commit message instead). Broke the build :-(
