Come here developers talk about how they got their first full-time jobs as a Junior Developer and learn tips from them.

Even if you are not ready for Monday, it cannot always be weekend 🥲
Happy new week : )
Trust you had a great weekend?
Here’s what I have for you this week
What I did last week 😇
  1. I started a series on my channel: How did you get your first full-time job as a Junior Developer? - Interviewing myself and people ✨. In this series, I’ll be interviewing different developers and ask them to share their stories so that Junior Devs can pick tips to improve their application process
  2. I published Why you should always Cleanup Side Effects in React useEffect and How to Cleanup. Side effects happen a lot in React applications and leaving them when they are not needed can cause bugs or memory leaks. In this article, I explain why you should clean them up and also show how to clean them up.
  3. I published What is a Canonical link, and why should you use it?. In this piece, I explain why you would want to use a canonical link when republishing content in different websites
  4. I published How to cancel a setTimeout in JavaScript. setTimeout is used for setting timers and functions that execute when the timer completes. But how do you cancel a timer? I shared it in the piece.
  5. I started a series of Dev.to: JavaScript Array Methods Series’. In this series, I intend to explain all (if possible) array methods in JavaScript.
  6. I attended a meet up on “What the heck is DevRel”. Here are the slides: What the heck is DevRel?
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. Do check it out if interested and share : )

Useful tip of the day ✨
If there are git commands that you use often, you can create shortcuts for them using Git aliases.
For example, a git command for checking out a new branch:
git config --global alias.cnb "checkout -b"
You’ve set the alias “cnb” for the checkout command and now you can run:
git cnb new-branch
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 🌟
