It looks like I’m a contender for a Ruby on Rails position, and I’ve been tasked with adding some functionality to a skeleton project. One of the requirements is that I implement a “drag and drop” feature that will reorder a list of events with those actions.

I’m going to…

On my seemingly unending job search, I’ve started to notice a trend that more companies are switching to Typescript over traditional Javascript. This seemed like a good opportunity to go over the basics and talk about the differences between the two. …

I was on an a full-stack engineering position interview this past week, and I came to realize that my backend skills really need some work. I’ve come to accept that Javascript is my lynchpin language, and whatever I can do to double down on that knowledge is going to serve…

This is going to be a quick one, but should help you out with error handling with your redux application.

One of the issues in using redux is its use of strings in the actions folder. Take for example this very simple action creator…

As of recent I’ve been migrating my projects over to use React Hooks. Class components are becoming a thing of a past, an unwieldy and taxing component! So lately I’ve been diving deep, getting into useState and useEffect.

In my capstone project at Flatiron School, one of the biggest issues…

Gather ‘round, my friends, and let me tell you a tale as light as the wind. I’d love to spend just a few minutes telling you about a CSS framework entitled “Tailwind”. I’m in no way sponsored or reimbursed by Tailwind, its just a really solid design. …

“The Big O” or How I Learned to Love Runtime Complexity.

I graduated from Flatiron School’s program recently, and I was shocked and horrified to find out that this seemingly essential piece of knowledge was left by the cerebral wayside. Why haven’t we met? Is it something I said? Do…
