What are you learning?

I'm curious what people around here are working on learning. If I was just getting started I would be keen on learning HTML/CSS and how HTTP requests work. From there I couldn't imagine doing much without knowing a scripting language like Python.

Let me know!

    Brushing myself on Go to build a messaging system for our infra (there is a moment where nodejs doesn't do the job anymore :D)

    1. 1

      Heard good things about Go, I did a little hello world thing with it one time. I think you’ll like it

      1. 1

        I've been doubling down on JS for so long it feels unusual to pick up another ecosystem again, but I think it is indeed worth it :)

        Thanks Alex for confirming my thoughts!

  2. 1

    I'm a big fan of javascript, both for frontend, using VueJS/NuxtJS and backend, using Express and Mongo, and using Apollo GraphQL to tie the two so these are the techs I've been using as I build my project.

    1. 2

      That’s a cool tech stack. Vue is really nice, I’ve been working on a project with it as well. Mine has no database though - I hooked up a flask rest api that queries over my local filestore.

      What are you putting in mongo?

      1. 1

        Thanks, Alex. I'm very new to javascript (well, I dabbled several years ago) so this combination works really well for me.
        I'm putting in user data, lists, and comments in my mongo db.

  3. 1

    I've been getting a lot better at advanced vanilla JS with my most recent project. I'm finally getting to use Mutation Observers to do some declarative rendering with Web Components, among other fun things.

  4. 1

    Deepen my JavaScript knowledge

  5. 1

    I am trying to learn Flutter/Dart and also all about App Growing

    1. 1

      Never heard of it. What’s it like?

      1. 1

        Is a framework from Google that allows to program mobile apps with a single code. Flutter uses the Dart programming language

        In the following articel you can learn more.

        1. 1

          Cross platform is such a great feature. I guess the concern is that certain things are not possible to do (this world probably affect iOS more than android). I’m a big google fan so this looks really interesting to me

          1. 1

            Yes. You are right.
            Sometimes you need to use existing flutter plugins that someone else programmed or program your own (https://pub.dev/)
            In more custom scenarios, you’ll have to write native Swift or Java/Kotlin code to interact with native APIs.
            I am not an expert, and my partner is who learned more about this framework.
            Starting using Flutter in 2020 we have now a production app "Tweetline Podcast" in both Google and Apple.
            He could build it without no much trouble.
