Hashnode Times 033 - The best from Hashnode
View all issues

Music makes Mondays better. 🎵 Do you listen to any music while coding/working? I prefer ambient electronica, and have been listening to a lot of Tycho the past few days. What’s your preferred genre, and who’re your favourite artisits? Let the community know — #MusicToCodeBy

A few interesting things that caught my eye the past week, in gist:

  • To .jsx or to not .jsx 🤔 This one’s a great discussion, on a PR in Airbnb’S JavaScript Style Guide repo, whether to restrict JSX code to .js files only. Dan Abramov’s rationale — on why a single .js extension all across your codebase is better than having custom extensions like .jsx — is a good food for thought.

  • Weight loss with Machine Learning 😎 Ariel Faigon has an interesting write-up in this repo on how he approached weight loss, with machine learning. He goes on in detail about his process — how we went on to set his daily activities as markers, finally classified into positive and negative outcomes.

  • Facebook vs. Adblock 👊 Facebook decided to go ahead with bypassing ad-blockers. Challenges were thrown upon from either sides of the Facebook-Adblock fence; and this article does a good job of summarising it all well, if you are not upto speed with the whole “FacebookVersusAdblock” news.

Now that I have had my say, down below is the last week’s best of Hashnode that you might have missed.

Cheers,
