  2. I published Understanding TypeScript Generics | Generics Simplified. In this article, I simplified TypeScript generics by explaining what it is, the syntax, why it’s useful and a good use case showing how to use it to improve the types in your application.
  3. I published HTML Starter Template – A Basic HTML5 Boilerplate for index.html. In this article, I explained how a HTML Starter Template looks like, and also explained the relevance of all the tags in the template.
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 🛠
eslint-plugin-sort-keys-fix: This eslint plugin is used to sort keys in an object. It works well with the sort-keys eslint rule which throws warnings if keys in an object are not sorted correctly.
Sorting keys in objects keeps keys organized such that you can easily find the method or property you’re interested in.
Useful tip of the day ✨
display: none and visibility: hidden are style declarations in CSS used for hiding things visually on the screen. But they work differently.
display: none completely removes the element from the screen along with the space that was allocated for it. This means the next element will occupy its space.
visibility:hidden, on the other hand simply makes the element “invisible”. The space allocated for it remains. The next element does not occupy its space. Think of this as opacity: 0 , but the opacity element is still interact-able while the invisible element isn’t.
That’s it for this week.
I currently have an Instagram account @deeecode where I share code/tech tips from time to time. Do follow if you’re interested :)
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 🌟
