Welcome to the September 2022 edition of the EddieHub Newsletter!
I've really noticed an increase in events this month! Here I am at the Google
offices in London for an event, and soon I will be traveling to Scotland to attend KubeHuddle! I hope that, wherever you are, you are taking advantage of the in-person and online events that are out there - they are a great way to meet new people and also improve your skills (or learn new ones!).
Of course, I could not forget to mention Hacktoberfest starting in October! Have a look at the Hacktoberfest section below if you want to find out more about it.
Eddie's thought of the month
We always think of "quality" as the "output", what about the quality of the "input"?
Take breaks, take them often and improve what goes in.
Mongo is very popular as a json document store, but managing it can be difficult. There is a VSCode plugin from Microsoft where you can manage your local and remote Mongo instances directly from your IDE.
Is it worth learning to code in 2022? With tools AI tools like GitHub Copilot, many of you have asked me this question. Find out in this video what I think...
How quickly do you think you can build an API? In this video I use NextJS (the React Framework) as it gives you all the features you need for production, such as: hybrid static & server rendering, TypeScript support, smart bundling, route pre-fetching.
October is a great time to get started or step up your Open Source contributions! In this month-long event, participating projects will support you in this goal.
