#discussRust is fun

  • But the more I play with Rust, the more I go back to it, as I'm re-discovering the fun I felt when I started writing my first few lines of code.
  • I needed a lot of time to figure out interfaces and their implications (especially with typings), I still struggle a lot with lifetimes, and I still need to write a first algorithm version using match before being able to rewrite it using the map/or_else/etc method set, but those little challenges aren't as frustrating, as "road-blocking", as I may have felt with some other languages and concepts.
  • I also like this "barebones" feel I felt and loved with C (although the compiler helps me in lots of way I could only dream of having in C), the feel of this optimization challenge.

#discussFrom piracy to open-source: my story

  • I ended up spending time reading and trying out scripts rather than asking my parents to pay a monthly subscription.
  • I stopped playing games that weren't free to play and adopted a "if the software doesn't have a freeware alternative and I can't afford it, then I probably don't need it either" attitude.
  • And many companies offer huge discounts (even free licenses) in the first 1-2 years of a start-up.
  • Moreover, I even dedicated 2 years of my time to work as a volunteer in the gaming community and try, one way or another, to give back for all the games I pirated as a kid.
  • While I haven't yet figured out if these are just excuses or legit concerns, I decided that the best approach would be to open up here and take it one step at a time.

Google spent a decade researching what makes the 'perfect' manager — the best ones delegate through a 7 step process

  • The best Google managers empower their teams and do not micromanage.
  • If you haven't heard the story, Google in an effort to prove that bosses weren't necessary, ended up finding the exact opposite — managers not only matter, but they can significantly influence the performance of their teams.
  • Without a sense of ownership and connection to their work, it won't matter if employees have the right skills, access to coaching, or collaboration opportunities.
  • One of the easiest ways for a manager to empower and motivate employees is to provide opportunity and autonomy by delegating work.
  • So employees understand the importance of their work and prioritize accordingly, make sure you connect the dots and explain how the task supports other team initiatives.
  • Although they have autonomy, make sure employees know the critical milestones they need to hit and what success look like to gauge progress.

Byte Me #10: Very old dildos, deadly lipstick, and a tanned asshole

  • Since we last spoke, Anouk went to Thailand, Cara trained with Chelsea FC, and Georgina started her new role as *editor + content creative.* WHO SAYS WOMEN CAN’T HAVE IT ALL???
  • Because we’re all magical and unique snowflakes who don’t always agree on feminist issues — and subsequently feel like we’re “bad” women — we’re going to discuss something we found online in each newsletter.
  • The biggest, or most talked about, example is sexual assault.
  • Cara: I haven’t seen trigger warnings hiding sexual assault online since that violates guidelines on social media.
  • When there was a lecture that discussed sexual assault, professors often give trigger warnings at the start.
  • I think it’s about finding the balance with talking about horrible situations like assault and not treating it like a taboo.
  • Tell us — as female journalists we love hate mail.

#watercoolerI am fed up with answering the same questions in interviews! - Are you too?

  • One of the frustrating things with the current state if tech recruitment is the repetition in interviews with different companies.
  • In the couple of interviews that I went through I ended up explaining the garbage collector in Java in at least 4 companies and had to answer: what are generics in Java?
  • at least 3 times.
  • This problem is not easy solvable because each company needs to check if the candidate is competent.
  • One solution might be having some sort of knowledge / skill proof that you do once and just show it to the company, so that the interviewers can focus on the more specific question.
  • They are not easy to solve but if they would be, the industry would benefit from it immensely.
  • What is your opinion?
  • Sore eyes?

#discussJS Array Manipulation Quirks

  • If the array-to-copy is more than one level deep, thou shall not [...spread].
  • In a shallow copy, nested arrays (or objects) retain references to the original copy.
  • Any changes of them affect initial and subsequent copy.
  • Shallow and deep copying in greater detail by Laurie Barth.
  • Are there any others you've come across that you'd like to add to this list?

#helpWhat are the cons of GraphQL?

  • I bet everyone here has heard about, used and loved GraphQL over REST API.
  • I also know the reasons why GraphQL is better than REST API.
  • Everything comes with drawbacks.
  • Even today, not all new startups and apps use GraphQL in their backend.
  • What could be the reason?
  • What is the biggest hurdle you face when you learn/work with GraphQL?
  • And what are the solutions to it?
  • What are the CONS of GraphQL?
  • I am asking just for the sake of knowing why some people might not like GraphQL.
  • I ❤️ GraphQL.
