3 worst mistakes managers make during 1-on-1 meetings

  • For the rest of us, however, meetings are a part of getting work done, even if they often feel like an interruption of our real work.
  • Like what's keeping your colleague up at night, what they're excited about, what they want more of or less of, and much, much more.
  • It might seem like your one-one-one supervision meetings are "nice to have" rather than "need to have." It might seem like these conversations are important but not urgent.
  • It might seem like taking care of your external stakeholders is more critical than attending to your internal stakeholders.
  • Research shows that when managers commit to having regular and frequent development conversations with their staff, employees are more motivated and engaged.
  • Rushing through, frequently postponing, or just canceling these meetings gets noticed, and not in a good way.
  • Commit to making these internal conversations as high a priority as any client-facing engagement.

Everything you wanted to know about stars

  • Stars are huge celestial bodies made mostly of hydrogen and helium that produce light and heat from the churning nuclear forges inside their cores.
  • Millions of years later, when the core temperature climbs to about 27 million degrees Fahrenheit (15 million degrees Celsius), nuclear fusion begins, igniting the core and setting off the next—and longest—stage of a star’s life, known as its main sequence.
  • Now around 4.6 billion years old, Earth’s sun is considered an average-size yellow dwarf star, and astronomers predict it will remain in its main sequence stage for several billion more years.
  • The red giant phase is actually a prelude to a star shedding its outer layers and becoming a small, dense body called a white dwarf.
  • While they may appear to be swelling red giants on the outside, their cores are actually contracting, eventually becoming so dense that they collapse, causing the star to explode.

Intro to RxJS Concepts with Vanilla JavaScript

  • The subscribe method consumes an observer and passes values to it.
  • The pipe method consumes an operator and returns a function, and makes a call to the resulting function with the observable.
  • pipe is going to pass the observable it's called on into the function that our operator returns.
  • It expects an observer, which it receives in the future when .subscribe gets called on the returned observable, either through another operator or explicitly.
  • In the observer's next method you can see that a call to a future observer's next is made with the function that we originally passed into map and an x value passed into next.
  • When you call subscribe you are asking for information, each link asks the previous link in the chain for it until it reaches the data and the next method from its observer gets called.

AOC And Her High-Minded, Hypocritical Rants Against Capitalism

  • Bold statements like this are precisely the sort of thing that gets AOC compared to Trump.
  • At this point, AOC stopped reading the history book.
  • US citizens tend to think that Norway’s economy wouldn’t work in the US because of all the different people and the sheer size of the population.
  • If you want to have an i-phone to tweet on and a jet to fly to the Conference you can’t just say Capitalism has failed.
  • You need a certain amount of capital in the system to make it all work; otherwise the world couldn’t support its current population.
  • If you care a lot about the environment, don’t fly around on a jet all the time.
  • If you think capitalism is the problem, stop tweeting.
  • You can’t justify the need to get your message out by embodying things you believe are “irredeemable,” it makes you irredeemable by your own logic.

React Code Splitting in 2019

  • There are a few grey zones about React.lazy and code splitting I forgot to mention.
  • While previous libraries during SSR would add all the used scripts to the page body, and you will be able to load all the scripts in a parallel – imported don't know files names, and will call the original "imports"(that's why bundle independent) to load used chunks, but able to make call only from inside a main bundle – so all additional scripts would be loaded only after the main one got downloaded and executed.
  • Does not support full dynamic imports, like React.lazy, and, as a result – typeable.
  • React-imported-component could handle this case, as long as it does not bound to the bundler/side, so there is no difference for SSR or Hybrid, but only for react-snap, as long as it supports "state hydration", while rendertron does not.
