The best discussions from the past week
I was just curious whether if you study web development now (and aim to master the core/essentials of HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, and MYSQL, namely) and create websites with those technologies combined, how much will you have to change re the code structure and design, in about a decade’s time?
Is writing CSS the BEM way a good idea? I’ve been struggling to figure out whether I should start writing CSS that way because I just haven’t been able to get over the fact that BEM naming tends to be long and it is tedious to have to give every single element a class name.
How to filter array of objects which contains another array of objects and extract out that objects ?
I have an array of objects. I want to loop this array and want to go at “ss” and extract both of the objects.
What’s the best (or correct) way to perform a code review and why?
I had interviews at multiple companies in the past few months and I have struggled to answer this question despite having used Redux in a couple of applications.
Which is more important when writing CSS: semantic even at the cost of a little more work on developer’s side, or developer productivity/speed even at the expense of having a less semantic code?

I’m just a regular user like you are, who’s simply throwing ideas at Team Hashnode out of a love for their current product. However, I have a career of user journeys under my belt and feel that no one has ever touched the idea of creating a gamified Projects section that can focus on providing relative experience to the inexperienced with the intention of expanding the “reach” of a community based on asking questions and receiving answers.
Oh dear… its 13 minutes before midnight and i just did a stupid stupid thing. my plan was to make a critical db query and to be 100% on the save site i made a backup in advanced.
When we need to use third party API or any REST API in our web app, we need to wait for the response coming from the server. Then in the success callback , we use that data and do other operations.And if we have more REST calls, we all know that it could end up being a Callback Hell.

There is no universal standard on good or bad. Here are my AAA principles on defining good software architecture
Game dev. The art of writing games. It’s a little bit of a childhood dream of mine to write a game. A game, which is enjoyed by many people. A game, which reflects the world of my dreams. I can do whatever I want, and show other people what I think about about, what my 8th grader syndrome made me see and how everyone can be a distinctive hero there. My own little sandbox. I guess, it’s this kind of motivation also driving other people into game dev.
Dan W.’s answer to “If you study web development now, will you need to change your code a lot in 10 years time?””
“You are in the wrong business if you don’t want to tackle changes. The only constant in this industry is change.”
“I thought about using BEM and tried to use it, but I have quietly gone away from it again. As you point out the naming conventions are often very and it leads to a few overhead problems…”
“Open Source does not have to === not making money (you just have to think of a different business model than selling your code and/or a license to use it).…”
