It’s ironic. I became unproductive after releasing an article about increasing productivity while working less.
I got thrown into a situation where I couldn’t find space and time to work for about a month.
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.
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
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
You learned to create a simple form with Flexbox in the previous article. Today, you’ll understand how to create the same thing with CSS Grid.
Here’s what we’re building:
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. **
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:
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.
The syntax for CSS Grid is foreign and hard to remember. But if you can’t remember CSS Grid’s syntax, you won’t be confident when you use CSS Grid.
To wield CSS Grid effectively, you need to remember its properties and values.
I want to share how I remember the most common CSS Grid properties today. This will help you use CSS Grid without googling like a maniac.
We created numbers like
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.
I don’t have time to learn.
Many people say that to themselves. I say that to myself too.
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 next 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.
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:
- The production branch
- The develop branch
- Feature branches
- Release branches
- Hotfix branches
We’ll go into what each type of branches do and how to create them in this lesson.
The best answer I could come up with was: “I don’t know”.
I hated myself for saying that.
I came to a point where I’m scared to promise a deadline. I don’t want to disappoint my students. I don’t want to disappoint myself either.
But I realize that I can’t say “I don’t know” to students who already bought the course. They have a right to know. So today, I’m going to overcome my fear and provide you with a proper estimate.
