#003: RxJS & Angular

RxJS and Angular have been in my dev life for a while now. But for many people, it’s still a sketchy concept. In this week’s latest publications, I explore how RxJS works and why it matters at codota.

If you’re unfamiliar with what RxJS is, it’s a little big JavaScript library that makes asynchronous and event-based programming easier through observable sequencing. What does it all mean?

Throwback Corner: Let’s Talk Angular

RxJS plays a major role in Angular, so it seems fitting to have my throwback Angular pieces here for you to enjoy.

Why Are Developers Still Using Angular?

In hindsight, the Angular team should have called it something else since it is so far removed and very different from the original Angular.js and just let that one die a slow silent death.

So what’s the big deal with Angular? and why, exactly, are developers still using and recommending it?

19 Things You Need to Learn to Become an Effective Angular Developer

Angular seems to always be changing and updating — but in reality, there are certain things that remain the same. Here’s a rundown of the core concepts you need to learn when it comes to Angular in order to properly leverage the JavaScript framework.

There’s a lot to learn when it comes to Angular and a lot of us get stuck in the beginner’s circle simply because we don’t know where to go or what to search up. This is a comprehensive guide (and a quick summary of Angular itself) I wished I had when I first started out with Angular 2+.

Rethinking Separation of Concerns with React

Understanding the true nature of separation of concerns is one of those topics that separates newbies from the seasoned developer. There’s more to code than just getting the syntax right. Beautiful code is one that is modular, loosely coupled and extremely easy to maintain. I’ve been thinking about long term feasibility of React and SoC over the past few days since my original deep dive into the framework.

What I’m Reading – Raising Good Humans

Every year, I tell myself that I’d read more books but never do. 2021 is going to be different. That’s why I’m starting a new “What I’m Reading” section to keep myself accountable. The books may/may not be code related.

Modern parenting doesn’t come with a manual. I’m currently halfway through this book and it doesn’t go into the usual parenting advice of what you should and shouldn’t do. Rather, it’s an exploration into yourself as a human. You can’t raise a good human if you can’t emulate it yourself.

This is a different kind of parenting book that encourages you to explore your own patterns before trying to change your child’s. A good read for anyone that’s struggling with little humans.

Final thoughts

It’s been a crazy year. 2021 will probably be crazier in its own special way. In a few days, there’s going to be an influx of posts about personal achievements, what people have done, and achieved through quarantine.

If you feel like you haven’t moved that far from where you started, that’s ok. 2020 is almost over on a technicality, but its craziness will continue into 2021. It doesn’t end when the clock strikes midnight. Now is actually a good time to start thinking about what you want to achieve next year, work on your game plan, and the steps to get you there.

Upwards, onwards, and see you in the next edition.
