One type of programming concept I really like explaining is the type that has an intimidating name but, once you learn it, is actually a pretty simple concept. This is how I feel about memoization.
Thunk is one of those programming terms that sounds intimidating, but many of us are actually familiar with and have used them.
A basic setup for using Typescript with React and Redux.
Pure function is one of those terms that might be intimidating at first, but the concept is actually quite simple. In this post, I'll quickly define what pure functions are and why they're good.
The Symmetric Difference interview question is an interesting one because it can be relatively simple to solve if you can think to use the Set object, or, seemingly very challenging or inefficient otherwise.
An approach to migrating between different versions of a schema that may be foundational to your app.
Let's implement debouncing functionality using Redux middleware!
Context was always a great option for sharing app-wide state such as theming. With the useContext hook, it became even better!
Short-circuit evaluation offers a clean and simple way to conditionally assign variables and handle control flow.
Follow along as I write a custom useDebounce React hook with Typescript.
It may feel fancy to use them together, but can get quite expensive.
In this post, we build something useful (an object validator) using test-driven development!
Memoization is an optimization technique used in many programming languages to reduce the number of redundant, expensive function calls.
State management is challenging. We can make it less challenging by making sure we don’t store any redundant information in our state.
The two-sum interview question is interesting to explore because it has both a brute force logical, solution, as well as a more efficient solution that can demonstrate strong CS fundamentals.
There was recently a lot of excitement surrounding the TC39 Optional Chaining Proposal. This is why!
Learning how to fetch data the right way with React Hooks.
Expermenting with the relatively new React Hooks API to accomplish debounced list filtering.
In this article, I intend to pass along the best advice I ever received for going through a whiteboard interview.
This is a somewhat opinionated curriculum for learning front-end development during 100DaysOfCode.
One topic I have gotten more and more excited about throughout my software development career is quality!
