June 30th, 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.

I hit something small but interesting (it tripped me up, and I've been writing Python for a lot of years!). I'd started a new Flask project and had intended to keep API keys in a secrets file but then chose to run with environment variables holding them while I was testing. When I switched Flask to development mode, it threw an error - it turned out that it was finding my empty secrets.py file and complaining about it (but worked fine in "production"). TIL!

I learned a lot about accessibility this week and started to use screen reader in order to check on different websites. Going this path makes me really happy.

I also had to check out digital whiteboards for our company, gaining some firsthand experience working with a windows surface hub. I never worked with a whiteboard before, it was a nice experience.

I am exploring Promises, Observables, Subjects in a more detailed level.

I even wrote a post explaining a bug I encountered because of the way Promises are resolved.

What are you learning these days @nickytonline ?

For myself, I’ll be learning a bit more about a new web framework called Fresh! It runs atop of Deno. I’ll be chatting with the creator next week about it.

That's awesome! 🔥 I have no idea what it is tbh. Sounds like it’d make for a great blog post!

Yes, that's awesome!

Yes absolutely! That’s the plan 😁

I’ve basically built a Postgres mock service which you can connect to and run some predefined queries:

psql -U materialize -h psql.bobby.sh -p 6875
