May 19th, 2022: 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.

Michael Scott from The Office dancing and saying "Almost the weekend!"

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

I realised that my React skills were slowly proving to be a bottleneck, so I learnt all the react concepts and the internal workings, now I feel pretty confident about react.
I also learnt what actual designing is, and how to really make good looking websites

I also re-learnt (went through the docs) of the amazing NextJS. I felt like I hadn't really grasped the concepts of datafetching (getServerSideProps, getStaticPaths, etc). This week, I was 1% better than the last.

This week I learned about the ControlValueAccessor in Angular Forms. This comes in handy in the event you are creating an Angular Form and want to create a reusable component such as an input. I've always just inlined whatever I need, but this would definitely come in handy if you have a form heavy app and will reuse the same field. I'm also exploring the UX trends for signup and login pages. If you've got a link to a useful article, please share :)

That writing blogposts can be not only be fun, but a good experience, and good exercise to put down things you've done!
