I guess I’m looking at it differently when I say GitHub is great when we are hiring compared this this guy.

I ignore the social media aspects, and look for source code that can give me an insight into how good the candidate is.

The new React Context API

March 09, 2018

When I spent weeks upon weeks to write about React I said that no one should use the context api because it was likely to break in the future, that time is coming. There is a new version of the context api on it’s way into react. Look here for details on how to use it.

The short version is that the new context API will be more like a component, that you either use as a “Provider” or as a “Consumer”. Again, look in the blog post above for details.

It looks like it will be a million times easier to understand and use compared to the old system.

As we move into this more and more divided world, where the moderate gets more and more ignored, and not just in politics I think we are missing something.

I see a lot of people ignoring a simple details. And they are not dumb, just a little bit let’s say “unreflected”.

People do things because they have reasons for doing them. As their horizon of understanding changes they chose differently than they used to.

This is the reason politicians and other leaders don’t do what they said when they tried to get elected.

You don’t need to agree with the choices, or the reasons for doing something. But keep in mind that most people have reasons they do what they do. And very rarely they do something just to be evil or terrible.

Imagine that Excel itself was implemented in its macro langauge: that is the power of Emacs.
