Leveraging Hooks to Fetch Data Async in React

Most of the React mindset is thinking synchronous and has a lot of similarities with functional programming. Output is generated based on input and is calculated at each render. This means that handling information which is not available at the moment of rendering a bit harder.

This article aims to give a solution to this problem using React Hooks.

The Value of Not Working

Since going freelance I learned about the value of not working at all, and how it affects me and my work when I actually do work for clients.

This article is not strictly meant for freelancers, but also people working on a payroll.

Presenting Thyme Premium

At the start of this year I started working on a little project called Thyme to make tracking my time easier.

Like a lot of services and apps, the idea came from having to manage data through Excel sheets, which did not really hold up in the long run.

Almost a year of improving the platform here and there in my spare time I am launching my fun project as a paid service!

Two Sites on One Domain, with Netlify.

Recently I started hosting my open source projects on Netlify because of how easy (and free) it is.

React vs Vue pt. 1: JSX and Vue Template Syntax

For the last couple of years I’ve been working with React, and as of late I’ve been getting into Vue as well. A question lots of people ask me is:

“So tell me, which one is better?”

There is simply no short or correct answer to this question. There are a lot of factors which come into play. That’s why I wanted to start writing a mini-series on some topics which demonstrate differences between Vue and React and the pros and cons using either one of the frameworks.

In this first instalment of this “React vs Vue“ series, I want to get into how both frameworks allow you to render content.
