So this was an interesting week. The week started with me being a part of a podcast, where I talked about:
- Getting started with React and the basics of project structure
- How I got started with programming and tech writing
- Got my first job in React
- How to get side-project ideas
Check it here:
Later in the week, with my work at hash.ai, I was trying to build a simulation to land a rocket. It took some messing around and talking with other folks in different teams, but I guess it would be a week or two before I end up landing a rocket: https://core.hash.ai/@akash/hello-world/stable
I also hosted a Clubhouse session on Saturday, which went really well! Was able to connect a lot of my close friends and have deep discussions on things like learning, self-promotion and networking. I’ll be continuing this and trying to talk on new themes every week.
Also tried streaming a little on YT, which failed horribly because my npm dependencies took way too much time to install. Turns out I was on WSL 1 which was causing the issue. Also it’s much faster to use something like codesandbox while streaming, which is what I’ll do from next time.
On Sunday, I went trekking with Madhavi which was really cool.
Also saw a crab
And right now am trying to actively recreate React’s useState and useEffect from scratch :D
