nickytonline profile image Nick Taylor (he/him) Updated on ・1 min read

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.

Carmen Sandiego saying "Let's find out!"

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

#todayilearned

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.👇👇🏻👇🏼👇🏽👇🏾👇🏿

I learned a nice trick.
I often store my scripts in package.json but when I need to add dynamism to my script such as.
package.json - old

"publish": "yarn publish --newVersion 1.0.2"

You can use a node script to get the version and console log to get the output.

package.json - new

"publish": "yarn publish --newVersion $(node ./getNewVersion.js)"

getNewVersion.js

// Do stuff to get version
console.log(newVersion)

Stdout in action using JavaScript, sweet.
Pair that with $npm_package package.json variables as stdin and you have a nice workflow.

I deployed my first Blob storage container using an ARM (Azure Resource Manager) Template to a dev environment at work. I've also been trying to learn as much as I can about Azure Pipelines because I will have to make my own very very soon.

This week I learned, that I'm not as strong in Javascript as I thought.

I had a mock technical interview this week as part of my Bootcamp and technically, scored 2/5 on Javascript fundamentals and 3/5 on current standards and frameworks.

It was humbling, but helped me to see that I need to circle back and refresh my knowledge of those core concepts. I know how to code, how to get done what I need to, but dictionary definitions and concepts I need to memorize / better understand for future technical interviews.

I did my mock technical interview through skilled in. A no-cost-to-me interview was included as part of my boot camp. Had a good experience, me reviewer was great and I got a lot of detailed feedback, but I have heard mixed results from others that have used the platform.
