Five Frontend Things Friday #10

Here are five things in the Frontend Engineering world, that I found interesting…

  1. How To GraphQL - The Fullstack Tutorial for GraphQL - From the cool folks over at GRAPHCOOL, “The free and open-source tutorial to learn all around GraphQL to go from zero to production.” Go forth and GraphQL. It is awesome.]
  2. 10 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me When I Decided to Become Front-End Developer - From Vladyslav Burdeniuk on the Medium blog, a great list of advice for Front-End Developers. I especially like the first and last tips, #1 Be curious, and #2 Don’t be Ashamed of Not Knowing Something. The former being how to avoid fatigue in this fast paced world of Frontend, and the latter to avoid Imposter’s Syndrome, something that is talked about a lot in our industry. Great list.
  3. How to Learn React - From John Hannah over on the Lullabot blog, “What follows is a five-step plan for learning React. All of the steps point you to free resources whenever possible.” Very nice links for how to Learn React, good approach.
  4. Debugging JavaScript - console.loggerheads? - Christian Heilmann on his personal blog surveys developers on Twitter and asks how the debug JavaScript. Give it a read, if you’re a console.log()-er. :)
  5. Lessons from my first year of live coding on Twitch - Suz Hinton, talking about her experience using, to broadcast her live-coding open source work. OMG, I freaking love this idea. I wish more people would do it.

Keep Rising,
