DevJ#0 — Booting up
A little bit of backstory: It's 1 AM. I'm desperately trying to learn a little bit of React and TDD. Everything that I did it's falling apart because of some mixture of "bad-configured-webpack" and "misleading-and-old-written-tutorial". I've decided to take a break and look at some boilerplates on Github. The first one that got my attention was "A highly scalable, offline-first foundation [..]" boilerplate.
Wow, neat-o. I'm still learning React, I don't need any server-side stuff (even though I know how to setup a Express server). Well, let's take a look at the dependencies inside package.json.
93 dependencies + dev-dependencies
What. This is a scam. This ain't no foundation. It's a whole building!
This isn't a sponsor post, I'm just trying to tell a story
And then, it snapped.
Actually, It snapped 2 times
First snap: Since last week I was talking with some work colleagues about we create a Medium Publication.
Second snap: A colleague o' mine called me "Module Boy"… because I like to discover new Node packages, Sublime and VSCode extensions, etcetera, etcetera.
That's it. From this day forward, I shall share knowledge via this medium!
(It's 2 AM now)
