Happy new week : )
Trust you had a great weekend and your week is up for a great start?
I just came back from some tour/vacation in Paris 😁
Here’s what I have for you this week:
What I did last week(s) 😇
  1. I published Should you write an article on an already written topic?: In this video, I explain why it doesn’t matter if an article as already been written, and how it shouldn’t stop you from writing yours.
  2. I published React Components as Living Things | State and Lifecycle Simplified: In this video, I simplify the concept of state and lifecycle as it applies to React components
  3. I published The Concept of React Hooks | Why they are relevant: In this video (an extension of the video in number 2), I explain what React hooks are and why they are relevant
  4. I published CSS Box Model Simplified where I explain what CSS box models are and how they apply to elements.
  5. I published few articles on Python on FreeCodeCamp
  6. I shared different posts explaining concepts around JavaScript, React and CSS on Instagram.
ICYMI, few days ago, I published Stop comparing yourself with people: Most of the time in tech (as well as many other areas in life), we compare ourselves with our “mates” but we fail to realize that we’re being unfair to ourselves. In this TikTok video, I share why you should stop doing that.
Here’s a technical writing resource I created, 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 : )

Tool of the day 🛠
react-hook-form: a React library similar to Formik that allows you to manage forms in React applications. It also allows you to add validations to different inputs in the form and many other features
Useful tip of the day ✨
You can skip values when destructuring arrays using trailing commas. Here’s how:
const array = [1, 2, 3]
const [first, , third] = array
console.log(first, third)
// 1 3
Using a trailing comma as seen above, I skipped the second value in the array and only created variables for the first and the last item.
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 🌟
