Old Fashioned


Why React Native is awesome. Tips for Tech Interviewers. Why 3D printing is the future. How to find the time to learn. And an explanation for weird Alcohol bottle design.

Quotes of the night:

  • "When you start creating things, your taste is always better than your ability to create. So you're going to create a lot of shitty stuff. But if you persevere, you can actually have the stuff you create match the taste that you have."
  • "Transpile with care!"
  • "When you read Angular source code, you can learn best practices that then you can implement. It will teach you a lot about JavaScript as a whole."
  • "Everybody uses JQuery still, we just don't say that we use it."
  • "Keep learning, it all turns out alright."
