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.

It’s time to get your learn on

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.👇👇🏻👇🏼👇🏽👇🏾👇🏿

This week I learned that when writing requirements for other developers, I need to consider the experience level of all people on the team and describe everything as detailed as possible to make it clear to everyone.

Things that are implicit for me are certainly not for junior devs - I need to keep that in mind :)

This is extremely important. Focus on specification while the devs focus on the implementation

Few minutes ago I learned how simple was to configure multiple containers networks in docker-compose. I needed a web server and redis to communicate each other. I wasn't able to figure it out many months and it will really speed my development

Programming: I continued re-acquainting myself with x86 assembly. It's been many years since I did any of that and it's fun (I did a bit of ARM assembly in between). It's a nice antidote to web development, where it seems like people just stopped caring at one point...

Hobby: I'm going over the annotated games of Botvinnik - Tal from the 1960 chess world championship, written by Mikhail Tal himself. Very insightful, he wasn't only a great chess player, he's also an amazing chess writer.

This week I learned about how to set up Firebase Authentication and use Firebase Firestore to store data using both Vanilla JavaScript as well as React !

Although, it was a little overwhelming to understand how some Firebase functions worked, I was patient enough to go through the docs multiple times and understand them. :-)

My website was down and after redeploying it on AWS Amplify, any url pasted was getting redirected to home page. Learned to debug this by removing the redirect rules

I learned a little bit about ARM programming. I learned a bit of x86_64 in college so the next big step was ARM for me

Started a great project on forms. Not really learning, more of reviewing the topic. Through reading and writing code. Great stuff, my passion for coding grows stronger everyday.
