Unit Conversion is really a pain point in application development. So learned a little bit of floating point math.
My friend Noble introduced me to the new job portal named Cutshort. It is an AI-based recruitment platform and SaaS software used by 8000+ companies, from startups to product giants like Google.
Learned the different applications of E-tags and its implementation in dotnet.
Engineering manager reading list compiled by Jacob Kaplan-Moss(lead developer and co-founder of django).
Learned the use of different background services in Chrome. It is sad that firefox is not supporting all these useful PWA features.
Background Sync - Background sync is a new web API that lets you defer actions until the user has stable connectivity. This is useful for ensuring that whatever the user wants to send, is actually sent.
Background fetch - Background Sync requires the service worker to be alive for the duration of the fetch. That isn't a problem for short bits of work like sending a message, but if the task takes too long the browser will kill the service worker, otherwise it's a risk to the user's privacy and battery. So, what if you need to download something that might take a long time, like a movie, podcasts, or levels of a game. That's what Background Fetch is for. Background Fetch is a web standard available by default since Chrome 74.
Periodic Background Sync - Periodic Background Sync enables web applications to periodically synchronize data in the background, bringing web apps closer to the behavior of a platform-specific app.
