It's that time of the week again, just a day early. I'm off tomorrow and Monday so posting this now.

So wonderful devs, what did you learn this week? It could be programming tips, career advice etc.

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

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.๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฟ

This week I learned something about noise generation to create something like this

I learned and implemented quad tree instead of spatial hashing but I still don't know what algorithm has the best performance.

I learned about canvas and retina/HiDPI screen, not from zero but I improved my knowledge.

I created other cool feature for particles, not really new things learned, but at least it was the first time for me to do these things

I started this GCP course on Coursera and I learned a lot about the massive set of features it provides for cloud computing. I definitely think we as web developers should also have at-least basic cloud computing skills. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

Also, implemented some React Router stuff for an app and wrote an article about it:

Installed NixOS on one of my Raspberry Pis. While I had used the Nix package manager on macOS before, I definitely learned more about the whole Nix system in the process.

I submitted my Twilio hackathon project called GroceryAssist, a web app for citizens helping other citizens during the pandemic.

It was a great learning experience and had a blast working on it.
