React Native community is growing fast, and that’s why its roadmap is changing so quickly. New modules and solutions are coming out every day. To stay on top of that, coders have to seek deeper than the official RN documentation.
Being a good developer ain’t only how clean and intuitive your code is. Eventually, most developers will make their way to write code that’s on a senior level. What’s challenging for many people is all the soft skills that require time and a holistic way of learning to gain.
These are important as we step into the age of remote work and massive digitalization. Being able to communicate clearly, or organize your work is nowadays important, just as your coding skills.
2016 my friend decided to go and work remotely for a few months from Thailand. At that time we…
Mental models are how we see and understand the world. It’s how we simplify complexity and resolve problems. For example, looking at the building, different people see different things. A construction engineer would look at materials and structure, while a business person would look at it as an investment opportunity.
None of the views are wrong, but understanding how everything works holistically requires looking from multiple perspectives. Having the ability to look from different angles correlates with how many mental models we know. The more models we know, the more complex problems we can solve.
Our perception is based on…
I still remember the first pull request back in my internship time and exposing code to others. I would take a pen, paper and write every suggestion I got from my mentor. Single review used to last for days, and at that time, I used to think how terrible this part of my work was.
For junior developers, the review can either be a learning place or a wall of shame. It’s up to the team and seniors to bring an atmosphere of trust, honesty, and constant improvements. …
Learn how to integrate SonarQube in your React Native project.
SonarQube is a static analysis tool that provides us with five main reports:
In other words, it analyses our code to gives a report of anything that’s wrong or could be wrong in the future. Recently, I couldn’t find any good documentation on SonarQube and React Native, so I documented the steps that I made to integrate these two.
Small steps to debug your crashing Android app without error logs
As a mobile developer, it’s not uncommon that your app will crash or freeze once in a while without any specific reasons. Debugging the .apk file can cause many headaches since you won’t have your remote debugger connected and sometimes no error logs at all.
ADB is a command-line tool that lets developers an alternative way to communicate with a device. It provides us a way of installing and debugging apps via terminal.
It’s consist of client-server architecture, which holds three main components:
Expected concepts to understand as a React Native developer
Coming to the mobile world might be overwhelming even for an experienced web developer. The first interaction with Android Studio or Xcode feels like opening a whole new world of unknown.
I was already working for a couple of years as an Android developer when a…
If you have a background in languages such as Java, the concept is pretty straightforward. It points to the current object in a constructor or method.
Many developers had trouble at one point with understanding this, and there is nothing wrong with reading about it several times, so don’t hesitate to come back to this article if you need a refresher.
Before going into the topic, you need to understand how execution works first.
Whenever you write code and run it, you rely on some of the…
