Here I am, checking mastodon again to see if conversations have picked up...

Learning Figma this week and I was working on a higher order component as well. Now to fix a bug whereby app tries to make an API call before it has the auth token it needs to actually make the call successfully.

I have continued to work as a React developer for the past few months. Right now I'm doing Andrei Neagoie's new React developer course to fill in any holes in my knowledge, I've also been learning some testing with Jest and Enzyme and some Node as well.

I started a new job as a React developer two weeks ago. Having a lot of fun learning and coding.

Watching JavaScript: Understanding the Weird Parts, on Udemy, with Colt Steele's JavaScript Data Structures and Algorithms Masterclass and some React courses in there as well. So far I have enjoyed Mosh Hamedani's React course the most of all the ones I have. And keep meaning to watch some FrontEnd Masters courses as well. Lots to do!

Reading Smarter Faster Better by Charles Duhigg. Subtitled "The transformative power of real productivity". I usually enjoy books about productivity so I thought this would be a good one. Also have his other book, The Power of Habit, but haven't read it yet.

Oh it cross posts the other way 'round - Mastodon toots to Twitter tweets. But it also inserts an ifttt link from ever post to the equivalent here, so that's kind of annoying.

My MacBook came back with a new processor as well as new board, top case, and battery. Thank goodness for the warranty.

I tried to set up an IFTTT recipe to cross post tweets to mastodon toots but not surprisingly, it doesn't seem to work.

Now time to learn Vue! Watching Academind tutorials on Udemy. I also hope to go through JavaScript: Understanding the Weird Parts as I've heard it's very good.

My FOMO is always related to web dev tutorial videos. If I watch this one, I might be missing out on another one that could be better!

So they're going to replace the top case, motherboard, battery, and charging port on my MacBook Pro. Now to wait for them to get the parts and install them.

I have no recollection of these songs I allegedly added to a new Spotify playlist last night.

Another weekend night, another programming book. Was refreshing some PHP knowledge as I haven't used it since 2015, then back to learning more ES2015. Enjoying Nicholas Zakas' Understanding ECMAScript 6 and JD Isaacks' Get Programming With JavaScript Next. Thinking about projects to work on.

Had to hand in my MacBook Pro to tech support for repairs last night. Good thing it's on a warranty. Feels kind of weird to be using Windows primarily though.

Programming isn't about what you know; it's about what you can figure out.

Every great developer you know got there by solving problems they were unqualified to solve until they actually did it.
