What else I have been up to?

GatsbyJS  - I have been working with GatsbyJS and trying to get a few websites live. I have enjoyed working with GatsbyJS till now and I would suggest you all have a look. It is an awesome tool to create static websites out of React, has great plugins, has a great community. You can create your blog, a product landing page, or a company landing page with GatsbyJS. If you are already working with ReactJS, then you should definitely check it out. Here's a dummy blog that I created using GatsbyJS + ReactJS in 1 hour - (** this is a staging URL)
I will soon start writing detailed tutorials on GatsbyJS :)

Youtube Videos - I created a few Youtube Tutorial Videos apart from my regular articles. Do check them out.


Slides - I had the opportunity to talk in one of the Front end sessions in Dubai and here is the slide from the event. My topic was - I believe you didn't know this about JavaScript. I spoke on some fun and weird facts about JavaScript, the history of JavaScript, How the JS runtime works, what is the future of JS, etc. I am sure you will like it. 


Some major releases that happened in the JavaScript world:

  1. create-react-app 3.3.0 — The quick React app initializer
  2. Node 13.3.0
  3. NPM 6.13.2

Next week I am planning to share a few cheatsheets on core JavaScript concepts that will help you as a developer. 

That’s it for this week! I will leave you with a Fact and a Trivia.

Did you know that NodeJS wasn't the first server-side JS runtime?  
There have been technologies that run JS on the server-side before NodeJS. They are:

1995 - Netscape Enterprise Server
1996 - MS IIS Web Server Server

Trivia. Give it a try
What's the output of the following two JavaScript expressions??
"111" + 1 = ?
"111" - 1 = ?

Happy Reading, Cheers!!
