Learned basics of developing a Chrome extension (working on a project with a friend 😉) annnd....I'm also learning all about happiness and its psychology! This is via The Science of Well Being course.

I'm also taking that course, it is great. Dr. Laurie Santos also has a podcast The Happiness Lab which is also a good listen.

 

Yes yes, I've subscribed to it last week and it's good!

 

In Go, when you want to unmarshall a json into an unexported struct, its fields should be exported. This is because json is a different package and doesn't have the power to view fields unless they are exported.

 

I think this trips up many people at first. At least after that, you'll remember for sure.

 

I've learned how to use Bash scripts to monitor some of servers status :).

The related tutorial is available here.

I also use systemd-ngrok to let some machines can use proxy server to let me connect from Internet :).

It can help me to monitor server stats easily & conveniently.

 

I learned a bit about styled-components. I was never a huge fan of the approach, but I think it is growing on me, it definitely helps clean up and make maintaining React code easier.

 
 

It's been a year since I joined dev and also a bit about the basics of Nuxt #vue

 
 

That puppy gif is the cutest!

This week, I learned that each instance of a React class component has it's own State. It didn't click until the reviewer pointed it out during my project review.

 

Learned that Rails syntax in html is as ugly as any other mvc framework.
After Rails syntax JSPs looks just fine and Razor is actually normal.
Routes in Rails are such a mess.
