It seems like it's a popular thing to write about how many and which books people have been reading, but recently I read a post by Chris Coyier about some of the recent blog posts he's read recently. On top of the fact that everyone should be reading his articles, it was super interesting to read that a guy, a who's who in the industry, is still reading and learning from others. It kind of made me question:
Regardless of what brought him to those posts, the important thing was that he was doing the exact same thing as me, joe schmo (also if you haven't seen that show, please watch it).
It's not uncommon for me to have over 50 tabs open at a time
Hey Google, could you please make Chrome have multiple levels of tabs? Or have an ellipsis to allow me to see all the tabs that aren't currently showing. You don't know how annoying it is to open that 51st (or whatever the magic number is) tab and not be able to click on it until more are closed.
Anyhow, I don't know why I leave them open?
Sometimes you open something and plan to look it over later.
Having a 4 year old is crazy. You get started on something and then its other room time. Let's be serious, when you have a choice between reading something online and letting your kid ride you like a horse... you always pick horse!
This is a big one and actually the main purpose for the post(s). I'll be the first to admit that I don't remember everything! Ya, I said it. I concentrate on understanding the why, moreso than remembering the how. For example, I (personally) believe it's more important to remember what's possible and why it's possible, rather than the exact command line or API required to get things done. Because of that though, I tend to have to look up a lot of references when working on projects.
With all that said, let's take a peak at what I've got open:
typescript I've needed to review and research the available types and features available.
wrapPageElement and not using
wrapPageElement. Since I wam using it, I had to split my
<SiteTemplate> into both
<StandardLayout> which worked.
Prism React Renderer does what I need. I've been reading a lot of behind the scenes
Mdast documentation which opens the door to new possibilities.
