Heya you people.

I go first:
I am learning Bootstrap and AngularJS because a job opportunity needs me to know those, but prior to that I didn't know much about angularJS and would never think about learning it.

Your turn.

P.s. picture of my new laptop and my new stickers collection, because... Why not?

I've learned a few things this week.

  1. I spent some time moping about and being frustrated that I've never managed to finish any "learn to code" program. Then I realized that's not really a problem and it might actually be a good thing. (actually, I should probably write more than a tweet about that)

  2. I learned about a different way to handle files. @rhymes introduced me to pathlib

  3. I am still working on figuring out how to fix a few things for Code Questions bot. Some of the questions are repeating too often. So, I'm reading through the docs to see if there is an option in random()

  4. I read the below post and <3 <3 <3 all the feels

Seems like you had a great and productive week!
I also never finished any program πŸ˜… but started a dozen. And I "cheat" on #100DaysOfCode. I skip days then come back like nothing happened πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I don't think that's actually cheating. You're still doing it, right? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Well, in that case, I wrote about why it's not the end of the world to not finish things.

Figuring out how to nicely print only a specific section of a webpage, without breaking the markup or styling. Was playing with some HTML-to-PDF libraries, but they are all equally terrible in both the end result and documentation. Then I figured I could just use the @media print CSS rules to create a print preview screen. Then the user can just hit CTRL+P and only print the part that they want. Super easy! πŸŽ‰

  • oh and why? Just for work! :)

I am starting to dive into GraphQL. I am a long-time JS developer but also have projects with PHP/MYSQL. Trying to figure out the benefits and ability to move over old projects or start all new projects with GraphQL.

I'm learning React Native because I want to build a native Android and iOS app using my preferred framework (React!) based on an idea I'm working on.

In the backburner is my need to understand data structures. So there!

I'm starting an internship that uses React and node.js in a while, so I'm learning React right now and might go back on my old node projects this weekend.

Good luck with Angular!

I am following a great tutorial on YouTube on building a game engine in Java.
Why ? because it's a fun way to use Java (I learned programming with it, but I am mainly a JavaScript developer), because I always wanted to learn gamedev without an engine (I am curious, what's OpenGL? what are shaders ? how does 3D visualization work ? What are matrix ? Wow, am I currently learning maths just for that ? And what about game design ? level design ? story telling ?... )
I would love to create a game engine in JS and maybe use it to build web app in 3D without APIs (I could use Phaser, but no, I want to know how it works)

I'm learning Kotlin for Android Development.
I already know Java, so Kotlin, being the future for android development, is a must.

I believe it is always a good idea to learning more about a topic you already know about. Specially with programming languages, I feel like there is always something to learn!
Good studies!!!
