Well, I forgot to send out an email in 2020. Oops... 🙇
Anyway, it's been an interesting way to start the year for sure. Back in October, I started writing course on TypeScript & React. I wanted to write a guide to take the layperson who might just be getting started with coding (maybe a career transition) and senior devs who are trying to onboard themselves to these technologies. 35,000 words later, several people begged me to stop, I mean, they asked me to share what I wrote with people!
That's where typescript.wtf came from and I want to hear from you. What's the biggest pain point you've had with TypeScript or React? Reply to this email and let me know, I'll break it down and write up a solution.
I've had some of my favorite dev friends share with me some theirs and broke down their issues over on that site.
I wrote some blog posts recently!
I've also been working on a few React Native projects. One I'm super excited to share is Reubin an Android client for Feedbin. I love RSS, but Feedbin didn't have an Android client that I liked and so I built one! 📲
Other than that, I kicked up my Downwrite again and rewrote the backend to use Apollo server and added some proper E2E tests running in GitHub Actions. ✍️
These are some seriously cool things I encountered while I was working the last couple of weeks.
Until next time,
PS. Thanks so much to my friend Mae Capozzi for all her editorial chops and keeping me the on the straight and narrow.
