Hi Vipin, to quote:
Some links for your information:
Recently, I’ve been dabbling with Flutter for building cross-platform mobile apps. Initially, I was afraid of the learning curve as I had zero knowledge of Dart (the language Flutter uses) or the framework itself.
After giving Flutter a try, I was totally impressed with the framework. As a React developer, I could relate entirely to the way Flutter works. Here are five reasons why.
One of the key features of React is that it is declarative. As compared to imperative styles where we need to manually construct a full-fledged UI, declarative method allows us to simply describe the current UI…
Containers are a unit of software that help us package our code and our dependencies compactly. The main advantage of this is it helps our apps to run efficiently and reliably in various environments.
When we package our code and dependencies, a Docker image is created. This image encompasses everything that’s required for our app to run, including the system tools and libraries as well.
When we build these images and run them, they become Docker containers. Once again, for emphasis, the huge advantage of doing so is to help our software run in the same exact way, no matter…
This is a week of surprises.
You definitely know something is off about the stock market when even your most clueless friend is posting screenshots of investing in hyped companies on Instagram and Facebook.
I am sure you know what I’m talking about for it must be really hard to miss the current craze of the stock market!
With a huge array of options, it is only natural to be confused about what technologies to use for your next React project. Today, I’ll share my favourite libraries and how they make my life so much easier!
We have all heard the popular advice to dollar cost average (DCA) when investing. But should you be using DCA, and is it the most effective method of investing? Let’s find out!
Under DCA, we simply set aside a fixed sum of money in regular time intervals to be invested into a specific asset. This periodic investment is independent of the current stock price, the market conditions, the country, etc. Because of this simple, regular, and periodic nature of the DCA method, investments can be largely automated.
For example, to invest in the S&P500, one may decide to periodically transfer…
When I started out to invest, no one told me how to make smarter decisions. I invested on my gut feeling and what I thought would be a good investment. I didn’t know that what I was doing is not investment, it is just speculation! I was just playing a gamble on my money. In an attempt to help my fellow investors, I am writing this short guide that summarises just the top 5 fundamental metrics that every investor should know.
My hope is this: Tomorrow, if someone asks you why did you invest in Stock ABC, instead of giving…
If you are reading this, you’re probably a React developer who is deciding between Create React App (CRA) and Next.js for your new project. I have used both extensively in several projects and have come to love Next.js for its simplicity, ease of development and the tons of features it adds on top of React.
Let’s break it down covering the top benefits and caveats to make the decision.
CRA is the official recommended method for most people to kickstart a new React project. …
If you follow the stock market actively, like I do, you would have noticed a disconcerting pattern — while the economy was in shambles, stocks were flourishing!
This was baffling to me. Everyone I knew, including experienced colleagues in the financial services industry had predicted the S&P 500 or NASDAQ to fall from its glorious early days of 2020. It was almost certain that we were in an economic recession and that the stock market was going to crash. And in fact, that was partly true. However, what happened after the “momentary” crash was unexpected. Stocks started to rise and…
One of the most common issues when setting up a new Express or React project is setting up ESLint and Prettier to work together.
If you are wondering what is the difference between them,
Prettier is code formatter which takes care of how your code should look like. ESLint is a linter which does more than just formatting. It also helps find code errors which can lead to bugs.
This short guide is dedicated to the countless beginners who might be scratching their heads on this same issue.
Note: We will be using VS Code in this tutorial, but it…
