When we ship an application, we wouldn't ever want our end users to be puzzled by the seemingly random "unstable" or "deprecation" warnings caused by the libraries that we have used to build the app. How do we mute the noise in Node.js?
We all know the keyboard shortcuts inside our editor of choice to quickly navigate and edit the code, but how about inside the terminal?
Some times we have to ask the users to update their Node version, but how do we do that programmatically?
In TypeScript, we can define our own "types" with either keyword "type" or "interface". So when to choose one over the other, and what are the real differences between them? Let's explore it in this article!
Kruskal's algorithm is an algorithm for finding minimum spanning trees - how to connect all nodes in a graph while keeping the sum of edge weights the smallest.
When building a web app, sometimes we need to approach it top-down. Let's see how to do that with DOM breakpoints!
Want to add type checking to your JS project but don't wanna pull out the big guns like TypeScript or Flow? Use JSDoc!
I've been using VS Code for everything from coding to taking notes for more than 2 years now, and here are 5 tricks that I cannot live without.
Writing Python scripts to help your non-programmer friends automate tasks can be easy, but how are they supposed to install all the right versions of dependencies by themselves?
I have been playing with the Dart language a lot recently and here are some tips which I find very useful!
Git hooks are customizable shell scripts that will be executed during life cycle of a Git command, here for you to accelerate your workflow!
Why MobX? Because state management can be a hard thing to do.
I will be constantly updating this post for new tricks I learnt about Git. :)
Regex, or regular expressions in its full name, can feel like some kind of scary dark witchcraft if you are not familiar with them.
Extend your keyboard with special characters from all over the world.
I've been playing with Tmux recently, and find it super helpful to manage terminal sessions, especially when doing remote things.
The migration from Hugo to GatsbyJS continues!
Just migrated from Hugo to Gatsby v2 beta, and here are some thoughts on the new start of this blog!
In this post, we'll be exploring what functors and map function really are in the context of functional programming!
Gradient descent is one of the most important concepts in machine learning. In this post, I'll be explaining what gradient descent actually is, and implement it in Python from scratch.
Today, I'll be explaining some of the most important concepts in functional programming, pure functions and immutability!
Simply better, cleaner code.
