Brief-ish newsletter. I am hoping to do more of these now that things have settled down.
So…I got a job!
I work for ICF Consulting Firm doing frontend work and I thoroughly enjoy my team and the company culture. I really lucked out landing with this company and am grateful for the learning experience and learning is basically what I am doing right now.
I have leveled up in the four months since I started considerably. I still have a ways to go, I am still a junior, but I am gaining practical experience and this is the most important thing for me for now.
Making a ton more money than I ever have, I decided to move somewhere that sort of reflected my new reality and while it is quiet, I am really happy with it. ICF is a remote company for the most part, and I decided to move to a 2 bedroom and make one of those bedrooms my office.
Unpopular opinion: All that junk you’re putting in React context should just be props. Legit uses for context are rare, and mostly for library code, not your app.
Till next time! 👋🏾
