Reading the Mastodon Recap of 2021, I wish the rest of the universe was more like the fediverse.

The tech lead of the React Core team is moving to work at Vercel, which is the company producing Next.js.
He will continue contributing to the React team, it sounds like, so the intergration/collaboration between React and Next.js will be even more seamless.

This reinforces Vercel tech as a good bet imo.

So by this logic, the learning mainly happens as you *do* the thing, and your success at doing the thing can be measured as a proxy for measuring the learning itself.

The other way to improve is to get feedback - either from a coach, or by studying and learning the right/wrong way. Example; the coach watches you try to dribble, and then corrects your technique.

I can think of two main ways to improve - one is to practice.
Just like learning to dribble a basketball; you try, and fail, and keep trying, and eventually start to succeed.

I've been reflecting regularly on professional growth, and how to help others grow professionally. Always becoming a better and better engineer. 🧵

Have you seen a Mastodon post make rounds outside of Mastodon? If so, let me know which post it was, and where you saw it. If I get like, 5 of them, I'll add them to our blog.

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
