I've been tinkering with NestJS...I've learned how to get TypeORM running with Postgres, and how to use Passport with the local strategy. I was able to use the local strategy for both username/password combo and email/password combo. I've also been getting in to Vue. I recently switched to Debian for my OS, so also learning a little about that and XFCE.

I learned a lot about using styled-components on my React app this week.

Also, got introduced to this a new topic called "User-stories". User-stories are a method used in organisations to design and code various features of an app in the form of stories. e.g As a User, I should see a list of only on sale items on the "deals" page. This means that I have to create a new component named "Deals" and display certain items in it. This is a really great concept which can help us actually visualize how the user would interact with the elements and design accordingly. I guess its better than saying the boring "create a deals page with sale item" ! Anyway that's it for this week :)

Hey Andrew, can you point me towards any documentation or blog posts about this? I'm curious about integrating RLS into a rails app.

There are RLS gems, I don't use any of them.
There are no real end-to-end examples designed for production available.

I've realized, that web components is the choice for my app rewrite. So I've been learning about Snowpack and lit-element and tinkering with it lately. This is pretty ambitious for me!
