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.

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.👇👇🏻👇🏼👇🏽👇🏾👇🏿

This week, I learnt Flutter. As a React dev, I started learning React Native but found how slow it was. I would run it on a simulator and my Google Chrome would crash (couldn't even check StackOverFlow 😢). Naturally, I went to the next best option: Fluttter. I have been trying it out for the past few days and have seen that it is so much better than React Native. I will still use React (the best web framework) but I will not use React Native. Just because you are in an ecosystem (e.g. react ecosystem) doesn't mean you have to do everything in that ecosystem and hate everything else. I think that is the biggest thing I learnt this week

I spent some time discovering how best to optimise for Reader View in Safari. Looks like there’s a lot of nuance and I even found cases where it would change the layout. Got there in the end (mostly), after plenty of trial and error.

You won’t regret it! I haven’t written pure CSS out of choice for about 10 years now, I always opt for LESS/SASS.

I started learning React few weeks earlier and still do not feel confident enough to apply for a job.
This week I studied JS more deeply and I am simply amazed by it.

Nice! I. Case you weren’t aware. Kent C. Dodds has a great free beginner React course on egghead.io, kentcdodds.com/blog/the-beginners-.... Also, another great free React resource is Frontend Armory. It used to be a paid subscription, but now it’s entirely free. Check out frontarm.com.

This week I learned React Native. It is amazing for a developer to learn a new framework, and the experience was great!
