2018 Week 2 Review

8/1/2018 to 14/1/2018

Started this week with NFN team hangout.

Not so a productive week.

For example, one day I work like hell but then next day I’ve to force myself to open code editor and that too not able to work for more than an hour.

However this week I’ve pretty much planned a system to manage my task efficiently. Sort of like bullet journaling

Let’s see how it goes.

Articles

How bug-free should your MVP be? - Indie Hackers Forum

  • It’s better to lack a feature now and implement it later, than to present one that is likely to break to a user

Elon Musk reportedly uses a brutal tactic to stop people wasting time in meetings - Ideapod

  • “That may be borderline rude, but it makes sense,” he wrote. “Don’t be in a meeting unless there’s a purpose for it; either to make a decision or get people up to speed. In most cases, an email will suffice.”

I’m harvesting credit card numbers and passwords from your site. Here’s how.

  • TLDR: Don’t use some random npm package. It’s so scary but a must read for any JavaScript developer.

Podcast

It is really good and I’ll listen to it again and take note.

Like always Wes & Scott’s podcast is awesome. A must listen to podcast for someone who wants to try out GraphQL in near feature.

In this podcast, Kent talked about render prop pattern and how he uses it in downshift

These are some podcast that I listen passively.

Development

ALWAYS make sure that you are using correct version when following through documentation.

Shankar & I decided to try out Apollo for GraphQL for one of our upcoming client project developed in Vue.

Here’s our simple plan.

We just need to fetch some data using GraphQL API and display it in our hello world app.

For that I’ve instantly deployed the GraphQL mock that I did for Vookmark.co

And followed every step in Getting Started with GraphQL, VueJS & Apollo Tutorial

After like 1 hour we’ve found that the issue was because of outdated docs

What a bummer :(

Entertainment

Watched Coco (2017) movie ?

Movies are mostly for entertainment purpose but there are some movies that we can relate to yourself and learn something from it. I believe Coco one of them

My take away from the movie: It is okay to pursue dreams but there is nothing more important than family

That’s it for the week.
