Over the next few blog posts I’ll be covering some quick easy refactorings that could help you tidy up your Elixir codebase.

Some time in early 2017, I had the idea to create a “form state management engine” that was totally independent of React or Redux, just pure javascript. 
React has a new feature coming that I think is pretty cool. It allows us to compose with React in places we couldn’t compose before.

It’s been too hard to deal with file uploads in Rails for too long. Sure, there’s been a lot of fine plugins available, but it was overdue that we incorporated something right into the framework. So now we have!

On the Front-End
In this blog post I explain why, in my opinion, currying is in conflict with some of JavaScript’s foundations.

Work was underway. I have not worked on this project before. I didn’t know anything about the project’s structure or build process—but as luck would have it, they were all tools I’d used before.

When using rollbar.js in client-side Javascript, Rollbar will track and report events that happen prior to an exception or message being reported, and display them in the Telemetry section of an occurrence. The telemetry timeline provides 'breadcrumbs' that can help developers understand and fix problems in their client-side Javascript
People & Process
One of the areas I often see senior engineers struggle with, is raising junior engineers to the next level.  Often this is because we don’t give them the space to explore, learn and understand how to approach problems for themselves.

On the surface, my friend didn’t do much — he just gave me his time. He didn’t have to spend more than an hour to help me understand what I didn’t know, and put words to the questions I didn’t know how to ask. Yet, the gift he gave me was immense.

Of course, this is just how I do things. There are lots of ways to host a successful workshop, and I'd be curious to learn about what's worked for others!

Learning & Growth

These lessons aren't unique to agile, but are part of my success with it. I hope to help you avoid the mistakes I made before they became second nature to me.
