There is nothing special about me, @DThompsonDev, @codingphase, @RealChrisSean, and many other developers out there. We wake up ⏰, put on our pants πŸ‘–(most of us πŸ˜‚), and put in the work πŸ’―. Coding is not for everyone but the OPPORTUNITY to learn how to code is limitless πŸ“ˆ

"Jacob, why do you have such a big issue with how interviews are done?" Hmmm...
Think I took my last technical interview. @cherthedev has it right. Feedback was I needed too much help to get to an optimal solution. Why do you filter your devs on a how fast they think? You’re ruling out deep thinkers. Why even offer help if that’s possible feedback?

Just nuked the entire Babel config for my Advanced React course so I could use Next.js 12 SWC. Had to use the experimental Styled Components plugin, but it worked first shot! It's so nice and fast!

We bought Zaraz (blog.cloudflare.com/why-clou…) because third-party JavaScript is so terrifying. Both theoretically and in practice. It was either buy Zaraz or...

Typescript errors aren't the same as linting errors. They're not nagging at aesthetic or violating convention, they're almost always hinting at a deeper issue in your structure or a bug you aren't aware of Enjoy fixing them, you're making your code more correct

Due to increased error rates on the AWS Management Console, we're going to have to wait until next week for Amplify with Friends. HugOps to all the engineers working hard to solve this!

This would be a great idea for a browser extension, if it doesn't already exist. Exceed a predefined number of open tabs and the extension makes you close some and optionally bookmark them.
I have a maximum tab rule. I will arbitrarily close tabs or even all of them after a certain amount... If it's "in progress" related I bookmark it

"I have too many tabs open!" I only see 4 tabs open... I dream of having that many open tabs instead of the 116342 I have open right now!

Nothing says "fuck non-traditional entries into tech" like internships for college students/grads only.
