How to review and edit a pull request

When you submit a pull request, a collaborator will have the right to review your pull request. They’ll decide whether to accept your pull request. If they accept your pull request, your code will be merged into the branch you requested for.

You’re going to learn how a review process will look like from both points of view:

  1. The person who’s reviewing the process
  2. The person who’s submitting the review

Getting out of a productivity funk

I want to share with you what happened, how I handled the situation, and the lessons I learned. This article will help if you found yourself in a productivity funk.

How to submit a pull request

Let’s say you wrote some code on the develop branch. You’re done with what you were working on, and you want to merge it to the master branch.

But you don’t know whether the code you’ve written is good enough. You want someone to review your code before you merge it into the master branch.

You can do that with a pull request

How to use Git stashes as a temporary storage

Let’s say you’re coding on your development branch. And you get a notice that there’s a bug on the production branch.

You want to check for the bug, but you don’t want to lose the work you’ve created on the development branch. You also don’t want to commit what you’ve written because they’re not done yet.

What do you do? You can’t commit and you can’t switch branches. If you switch branches, things that aren’t committed will flow over to the branch you switched to.

What you want to do is save the changes somewhere temporary while you switch over to another branch. A Git stash is that temporary storage.

Creating a simple form with Flexbox

The simplest form on the web contains an email field and a submit button. Sometimes, the email field and the submit button is placed on the same row, like this:

Email and submit button on the same row
Email and submit button on the same row

This UI looks simple! But it can be difficult to build if you’re using older methods like inline-block. The hard part is getting the email field and button to align visually.

The great news is: CSS Grid or Flexbox can help you build this form easily.

Semantic Versioning

We created numbers like 1.0.0 and 1.0.1 for releases and hotfixes when we worked on Git Flow. What do these numbers represent, and why do we use them?

These numbers represent the version number of the product we put out in the world. We use them because we’re following a best practice called Semantic Versioning.

When we use Semantic Versioning, developers will know whether a change will break their code. The numbers give a clue to the kind of changes that have occurred.

Many popular projects use Semantic Versioning. Examples are React and Vue.

Becoming more productive while working less

I don’t have time to learn.

Many people say that to themselves. I say that to myself too.

I haven’t learned much this year because I was on a tight schedule to create content. I had to create one article and one video every week for the blog. I also had to create as many Learn JavaScript lessons as I can.

And I was almost burned out. I was unhappy and depressed.

Learning is important to me. When I don’t learn, I start to feel guilty.

One day, I decided enough was enough. I had to change up my schedule to allow time for learning. I did some experiments over the new few weeks and found a way where I could give myself 1.5 hours to learn every day. The best part is, I created even more content than I did before!

I want to share with you my experiment and how I tweaked my schedule to allow time for learning. I hope it’ll help you find some time to learn as well.

Managing your Git branches with Git Flow

How do you manage your git branches if you have many of them? For this, we have a well-known method called the Git flow.

It contains five types of branches:

  1. The production branch
  2. The develop branch
  3. Feature branches
  4. Release branches
  5. Hotfix branches

We’ll go into what each type of branches do and how to create them in this lesson.
