I published a YouTube short where I highlighted two things you should before applying to a company.

Happy new week : )
Trust you had a great weekend? I’m sorry you didn’t get a letter from me last week. I didn’t gather enough resources to share.
Here’s what I have for you this week
What I did last week(s) 😇
  1. I published How to Configure Git Settings to Improve Your Development Workflow. In this piece, I explained how to take advantage of the git configuration file to improve your development experience.
  2. I published this YouTube short: 2 things you should do before applying to a company ✨ where I shared two things you should do before applying to companies that can make your cover letters better.
Also (as shared in my previous letters), I recently launched Simplified Technical Writing where I share most (if not all) of my experience in Technical writing. In it, I share how to get started, how to get topics, writing jobs you can apply for and so much more.

Tool of the day 🛠
Hypothesis: Hypothesis allows you to easily add annotations to different webpages (just like in Google Docs) and create notes on paragraphs, sections or headings.
Useful tip of the day ✨
Let’s say you’re in “folderA” which has a subfolder “folderA1” and you want to install an NPM dependency in “folderA1” without navigating to that folder, you can use the --prefix option like this
npm --prefix ./folderA1 install typescript
This will install the typescript dependency in “folderA1”
That’s it for this week.
If you’d like to talk about Tech (writing or software engineering) or have questions, you can schedule a meeting with me in my Calendly profile. Looking forward to meeting you.
As a content creator, I love simplifying diverse topics in web development that I understand. Do you have any issues, tools, or frameworks that you’d like to understand better? Do let me know, and I may come up with an article or video on it.
A new week, another opportunity to do amazing things! So go do amazing things 🚀.
Do have a splendid week 🌟
