Watch my interview with Victor where he shared the tips that helped him in landing his first full-time Design job as a Junior Designer

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 had an interview with Victor, where he shared how he got his first full-time Job as a Junior Designer. This video is the second part of my Junior Dev Series where I interview different developers (as well as other tech related fields) and have them share their stories to help people pick tips and improve their approach to job applications
  2. I published the summary for me and Fortune’s video Interview on my blog: How did Fortune get his first Full-time Job as a Junior Developer? - Junior Dev Series. I highlighted the key points he shared here.
  3. I shared some JS tips, Common HTTP Status Codes and Using the string.replace method with a callback function on my Instagram Account
  4. I published Why must JSX expressions have only ONE parent element?, where I explain how JSX works under the hood in React, and why it must have one parent element.
  5. In my JavaScript Array methods series, I added Array.flatMap() - for applying a map and a flat on an array and Array.some() - for testing that at least one item meets a condition
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 : )
Featured Articles ✍️
  1. Difference between the Event Loop in Browser and Node Js?
  2. How to Write Good API Documentation
  3. Google adds limited Markdown support to Google Docs: Early this week, I made a tweet about Google Docs being a top tier product (which surprisingly blew up) and I mentioned that my problem with Google Docs is its lack of support for Markdowns. Well, looks like that may not be a problem in the future anymore. This article mentions its potential support for it.
Featured Videos 📹
  1. React 18 - What’s New, What Changed & Upgrade Guide
  2. CHEAP Lighting for YouTube Videos - STAND OUT for under $100: While the prices of these tools mentioned may have changed, this is a great resource if you want to improve the lighting of your YouTube videos. I have got them, but haven’t fully tested them yet. When I do, I could share my own review
  3. Learning JavaScript w/ Zell Liew: An informative interview session about JavaScript.

Useful tip of the day ✨
Here’s how to assign a dynamic property name for an object:
const propertyKey = 'type'
const obj = { name: 'JavaScript', [propertyKey]: 'language'}
// language
This is done by using the square brackets as supported in ES6, like you see above.
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 🌟
