• Build a Corgi Up-boop Web App with Netlify Serverless Functions and Hasura

    Starting from a prebuilt frontend, Jason Lengstorf guides you through the creation of a "Corgi Up-boop App" that uses Netlify Functions and Hasura. You can view the deployed final product on Netlify.

    You'll set up the Netlify CLI, and configure a local development environment before writing and deploying functions with a few different use cases.

    The first example function bypasses CORS restrictions to retrieve corgi data from an example third-party API.

    Next, you'll configure environmental variables to securely communicate with the Unsplash API without exposing private keys to the client.

    Serverless functions don't persist data by themselves, so we will use Hasura to create a GraphQL API for tracking the number of "boops" each corgi receives.

    This course is an excellent illustration of the speed of Serverless functions, and how fast you can implement functionality in your web applications.

  • Redux with React Hooks

    Redux was announced back in 2015 and immediately took off as the de-facto state management solution for React. As it gained widespread traction, it also became clear that in many cases it was brought into applications prematurely. The community in some ways started to push back on its use and recommended the built-in setState method as an alternative. Several other state libraries also started popping up around this time. Finally, as React Hooks were announced with a built-in useReducer method it appeared that Redux's time was up. However, these claims have proven to be premature. Redux is not dead and instead remains React's most popular state management library*.

    Recent updates to redux exposing a hooks-based API address some of its most serious drawbacks and make it even more appealing. This course will show you how to apply redux to a modern react hooks application. I hope you leave this course with a continued appreciation for React Hooks and renewed enthusiasm for Redux.

    Thanks for watching 📺.

  • Scale React Development with Nx

    On the surface, starting a project sounds easy. First you make some directories, install some dependencies, then you write some code.

    But there's a bit more to it than just those three steps.

    The type of project you're working on impacts the decisions you make. It gets more complicated when you're working on multiple projects that are related. For example, maybe you have a customer-facing frontend app, an admin dashboard app, and a single backend used for both.

    How does this change your directory structures? How should you share code between projects? What happens when you add a Design System into the mix?

    It can get hard to keep things straight in your head.

    Nx is a tool that aims to solve these problems for you, whether you're working solo on a small full-stack app or on a dev team of thousands.

    It's not just an opinionated folder structure. When you create an app with Nx, it generates unit and e2e test setups as well as preparing bundling and code-splitting with Webpack, and stubbing out common features like routing.

    One of the coolest features of Nx is its Dependency Graph. The graph can visually show you the relationship between the parts of your application, and is optimized to ensure that compiling, testing, and linting only happens in the affected areas of your project.

    In this course, Juri Strumpflohner demonstrates these features and more through the iterative creation of a React + Storybook + Express app. Don't worry if this isn't your preferred stack! Nx supports the most popular frameworks & libraries on the web.

    More importantly, the focus of this course is more on the workflow than the implementation.

    Watch Juri's course, and see if the Nx tooling & workflow is right for you and your team!

  • React State Management in 2021

  • WordPress as a Headless Content Management System (CMS) and GraphQL API

    WordPress has been around for a long time and powers a huge number of sites.

    Just because WordPress isn't brand new doesn't mean it can't get the job done!

    Running WordPress as a Headless CMS gives you the benefit of a great content creation experience on the back end with the powerful Gutenberg editor while allowing you to use a modern JavaScript framework on the front-end.

    In this course, Kevin Cunningham will guide you through setting up WordPress as a headless CMS from scratch, as well as migrating from an existing WP site. You'll get practice with different WordPress content types, implement a GraphQL endpoint for querying data, and backup & deploy your site. All the while, you'll deepen your understanding of how headless WordPress approaches the relationship between content & rendering.

    Using WordPress as a headless CMS turns it into a datasource ready to work with Gatsby, Next.js, or whatever else you want to build with. Your and your clients will be able to take advantage of WordPress's content editing experience, without having to settle for a cookie-cutter theme on the frontend.

    With WordPress being decoupled from the rendered site, the database isn't hit for every request. This means faster performance and more security against WordPress exploits. You don't even have to host the editor at the same domain as the published site.

    While watching, consider...

    • What are the tradeoffs of using a CMS for a site?
    • Would headless WordPress work for me or my clients in this scenario?
  • Getting Started with Flutter

  • React Real-Time Messaging with GraphQL using urql and OneGraph

    One of the most well-known GraphQL features is that it lets you do things like replacing multiple REST calls with a single query. You might have done some query experimentation with demo APIs or working on a Gatsby site.

    But there's more to GraphQL than just making queries.

    For example, with mutations and subscriptions, GraphQL can smooth out the process of implementing real-time features in your web applications.

    In this new course, you'll get practice with these features as egghead's own Ian Jones guides you through building a real-time chat app that's backed by GitHub Issues.

    The tools used for the course are OneGraph and Formidable Labs' urql client.

    OneGraph is great because it allows you to expose a single GraphQL endpoint that can access data from multiple services including GitHub, Stripe, Airtable, and more. It handles things like authentication for us as well, as you'll see in the course.

    At Formidable Labs, the team released urql as a lighter weight alternative to Apollo or Relay that supports the most common interactions with a GraphQL server through their handy React Hooks.

    The course starts with a fresh Create-React-App and touches upon topics like using GraphQL query variables, working with Hooks, handling authentication with React Context, and setting up & consuming the GraphQL subscription.

    Along the way, Ian also works through debugging some common errors that you may encounter when developing your own GraphQL apps in the future!

    • Create a new Blitzjs Project
    • Create Pages
    • Work with the database in your app
  • Building Live Search Box

    Like in section 04 Implement the Pattern in Common Async Scenarios, it's time to implement the pattern in common scenarios!

    Now that you're familiar with the pattern we'll build a search box that handles a few different async scenarios.

    You'll filter values based on user input, debounce text while a user is typing, and send a request once they are finished. Finally, we'll see how to implement a cache to save on network requests

    You're in Section 07 of Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript

  • Build Advanced Component with React Hooks

    The new React Hooks API allows to use different patterns in a simple, direct and functional way.

    In this collection you will find a step by step guide to build a complex component using different design patterns implemented with the Hooks API.

    We will start with a simple component <Wizard> that use the useState hook and in each lesson we will be improving the implementation by using different strategies. In the last lessons we will have a full Wizard component with a flexible API to allow the user to manage the component based on their requirements and You will have learned the use of useState, useReducer, useContext, useEffect and useCallback along with some popular design patterns to build React applications.

    You will be able to find the code and notes for each lesson in the github repository.

  • Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript

    As a developer, you'll often make use of APIs that have you pass in a callback function. For example, adding event listeners or using various other DOM or Node APIs.

    What's less common is writing your own code that makes use of callbacks. Many developers know what a callback is, but not the why or how of implementing them in their projects.

    A callback is a function that you pass to another function, so that the function that you pass it to controls the invocation of that function.

    To help keep things straight, John Lindquist calls the innermost callback the Listener, and the function it gets passed into the Broadcaster.

    Think of it as one function broadcasting values to another function that is listening for them.

    These Broadcaster-Listener callback relationships can be composed to solve problems in the realm of timing, buffering, and caching.

    This pattern of composing callbacks is the foundation of RxJS and other libraries that handle complex async scenarios.

    In this course, John Lindquist guides you from a blank JavaScript file all the way through creating a library of reusable functions not unlike those found in RxJS. The difference is you'll be writing from scratch.

    You'll learn techniques for solving Callback Hell with composition, implementing debouncing, and building a word game among several other examples.

    Using callbacks in code is a major pattern in JavaScript, and learning to work with them effectively will take your problem-solving skills to the next level.

  • Implementing a Word Game with Patterns and React

    In the previous section, 07 Building Light Search Box, we implemented a search box with the pattern that we've built in this course. This works great but doesn't have as much business logic applied as other async scenarios.

    In this section, we will implement a word game where the values coming in from the user will be piped to different listeners to be consumed. Along the way, complex business logic will be applied to determine if the user won the game or not.

    You're in Section 08, the last of Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript

  • Bringing the Pattern into React

    It's time to introduce a "View" to our codebase so that we can present the values in the DOM. Since React is the most popular View library, we'll convert our basic JavaScript project to a React project to demonstrate how this pattern fits.

    We'll create several hooks (useCallback, useListener, useBroadcaster) in this section to see how you could implement the pattern in react terms.

    By the end of the section, you'll know how user input is handled and how to fetch resources in React with this pattern

    You're in Section 06 of Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript

  • Use a Completion Pattern to enable Repetition and Sequencing

    The concept of 'done-ness' is not something that is often considered when writing functions in JavaScript — you end up just running out of data or a function stops getting called.

    There are many async scenarios that make sense to signal that work is completed.

    By following a completion pattern, we can easily trigger repetition and sequencing (async or not) into our code.

    You're in Section 05 of Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript

  • Implement the Pattern in Common Async Scenarios

    Now that you've been introduced to the pattern in-depth, let's implement it in a few common Async Scenarios.

    You'll notice the benefits of re-using broadcasters through different scenarios as well as tweaking behavior through operators like when to start and stop code.

    You're in Section 04 of Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript

  • Use the Callback and Closure Pattern to Build Advanced Async Behaviors

    In this section, we will introduce another concept to the pattern that we've created:


    Operators are the final big piece that allows us to bend all asynchronous behaviors to our will. They give us a chance to redefine broadcasters and listeners in any way we want.

    We'll several operators throughout this section to implement mapping, filtering, and piping behaviors (and more!).

    By the end, you'll get a real sense of how you can continue building on top of the functionality you've already built.

    You're in Section 03 of Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript

  • Establish Callback and Closure patterns Around Async Browser Behaviors

    JavaScript is full of inconsistent APIs. Wrapping those APIs in functions allows you to have full control over how to configure them and make them more reusable.

    This becomes even more beneficial when dealing with the async nature of JavaScript. You'll learn how a broadcaster is a function that wraps another function (which we call listeners) and modifies the behavior. We will build up this pattern in a way that allows you to compose broadcasters together making your code more reusable.

    You're in Section 02 of Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript

  • Introduction to Callbacks, Broadcasters, and Listeners

    Before we dive deep into the pattern of composing callbacks and closures, we need to take start with the definitions and basic building blocks that we will be using for the rest of the course.

    You'll be able to answer questions like:

    • What is a Closure?
    • What is a Callback?
    • Why does Callback Hell happen and how can we handle it?

    We will see that by establishing a contract between functions and holding to the pattern that is established, you will have gained a lot of power and flexibility in writing reusable, robust functions.

    You're in Section 01 of Composing Closures and Callbacks in JavaScript.

    SSH provides a secure way for your to connect to and authenticate with GitHub's servers. While HTTPS connections use usernames and passwords as credentials, SSH instead uses public and private key pairs. These can be generated on your system using a CLI like ssh-keygen and then associated with your GitHub account using the public key.

    In some cases, you may need to connect to more than one GitHub account from the same system. For example, you may have separate accounts for personal and professional projects, which can be difficult to manage manually. Using ssh-agent and a SSH configuration file, you can alleviate this pain point by automatically determining which key to use based on your GitHub repository's git URL.

    🌟build and deploy a serverless application from a command line

    🌟debug and test lambda functions locally using SAM CLI

    🌟debug and test lambda functions from WITHIN your editor with AWS Toolkit extension

    Add AWS SAM to your toolkit with this quick collection!

  • Create a Landing Page with CSS Grid and Flexbox

    It's tempting to pick up a framework which has preselected flexbox or grid as the layout tool of choice, but it's important to learn when and why to use each method. This leads to slimmer stylesheets which results in better site performance, and less likelihood for "hacks" to make one method do what the other does inherently better.

    Throughout this collection, we will be progressively styling a responsive landing page template while building your knowledge on when to select grid or flexbox for any layout scenario. Spoiler alert: sometimes the best solution is using both!

    Each lesson in this 19-part course is a single index.html file. This keeps your focus on learning React, no distractions. We’ll start with a blank file and add more complexity as we go along, wrapping the course with a lesson on how to move into a more production-ready development environment—and even deploy your app to a great service like Netlify.

    You'll come out of this course with a solid grasp on:

    what problems React can solve how React solves those problems under the hood what JSX is and how it translates to regular JavaScript function calls and objects You’ll build a solid understanding so when you come across JavaScript challenges down the road, you’ll know how to…react.

  • Way Smaller Cross-Browser Images and Video with Webp and React

    On many websites, images and video make up the vast bulk of the data being sent over the wire; websites will often have several megabytes of images!

    There's a lot of low-hanging fruit in this area. In this collection, we'll learn how to convert our images to the webp format—a format often 2-3x smaller than png/jpg—and how to use the picture element to ensure graceful fallback on unsupported browsers. We'll see how to come up with a great abstraction for React to make it as painless to use as possible.

    Later in this collection, we'll also cover:

    • Automatically generating webp images on build
    • Leveraging gatsby-image to do the same thing in Gatsby
    • Smaller images across the browser spectrum with jpeg2000 and jpegxr
    • Avoiding layout problems with display: contents
    • Smaller video with webm instead of mp4

    Subscribe to make sure you don't miss it!

  • Basic Types in Rust

    This collection contains videos that explore the basic types in Rust, including Fixed size Integer, Pointer sized Integer, Boolean, Strings, Characters, Arrays, Tuples and more.

  • Configuration based reactive Angular Forms with ngx-formly

    Angular is particularly popular at large enterprises. Most of the time those line of business apps are very data driven and forms heavy. While Angular gives us two different approaches to implementing forms, neither of them is very satisfying, nor do they help keep the maintainability high especially in large enterprise apps.

    In this course we're going to learn about ngx-formly, a library that helps cope with some of the mentioned issues. With Formly you define the form structure once in your component code and the HTML will be taken care of by the library. This helps to reduce maintainability and moreover Formly has some nice reactive features built-in that help you reduce your form code even more.

  • Building an OpenGraph image generation API with Cloudinary, Netlify Functions, and React

    OpenGraph images are the images you see when you paste a link into a social platform and it "unfurls" into an image, title, and description. This happens on Twitter, Discord, Slack, and many other platforms. This collection goes over everything from designing OpenGraph images in Figma, to implementing them in CodeSandbox, to returning headless browser screenshots from Netlify Functions, and finally using Cloudinary as a write-through cache.

    You will come away from this collection with the ability to ship an API that you can use on any of your sites, and also on-demand, that can generate images for not only OpenGraph unfurls, but also for Instagram, GitHub, and more. Using headless browsers with playwright to generate our images means we get full access to all the responsive power of CSS and all the logical power of JS to handle layout, importing assets like pngs, choosing different fonts, and more.

    The image below is generated via the project you'll build and deploy in this course

  • Migrate a WordPress Site to the Jamstack Using Gatsby

    WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world. Content creators are able to easily customize nearly everything about WordPress from their admin dashboard, providing a really pleasant content management experience. Using Gatsby as a frontend for your WordPress sites makes the experience of developing the site and visiting the site just as pleasant.

    Moving your WordPress frontend to the Jamstack means you keep the convenience of using WordPress’s custom backend for creating and editing content while also avoiding some of WordPress’s biggest downsides.

    Historically, WordPress has many downsides, including:

    • Security — because it’s the most popular content management system in the world, hackers work hard to find and exploit security holes in WordPress sites. Performance — through a combination of legacy code, community plugins, and other challenges, WordPress sites can easily become slow to load.
    • Scale — if a WordPress site suddenly becomes very popular (a great thing!) it can overload servers and cause the website to go down (a not-so-great thing!) without complex scaling techniques.
    • Cost — a WordPress site requires always-on hosting, and specialized hosting can be expensive. Adding support to handle massive scale adds significant cost, too.

    Switching to the Jamstack helps mitigate — and even eliminate! — these downsides:

    • More secure — Jamstack sites don’t connect to the server or database after they’re built. This makes it much harder to hack the site.
    • More performant — by doing less work for each request and leveraging modern tools, Jamstack sites tend to outperform WordPress sites out of the box, and can be very fast with a bit of extra effort.
    • More resilient — because Jamstack sites ship to a content delivery network (CDN) by default, a sudden surge of site visitors won’t take your site down.
    • More affordable — many Jamstack hosting solutions have generous free tiers that are plenty for most small to medium sites, and upgraded accounts typically cost less than specialized WordPress hosting.

    Switching to the Jamstack gives you all of the benefits of WordPress and helps you avoid the downsides!

    In this collection, we walk through the full process of migrating a WordPress site to the Jamstack, which keeps all the flexibility and power of WordPress’s admin dashboards while adding all the benefits of the Jamstack.

  • ES6 and Beyond - JavaScript Tips and Tricks from ES2015 to ES2020

    Released in 2015, ES6 was a major update to the JavaScript language, providing many new powerful additions to the language. From arrow functions, classes, generators, and proxies to Promises and Modules, ES6 solved many of the languages problems with cleaner, more concise syntax and functionality.

    Since then, a new version of JavaScript is released every year, providing even more power to JavaScript Developers:

    ES2016 brings with it Array.prototype.includes, ES2017 has async and await, ES2018 adds new capabilities to regular expressions and async iterators, ES2019 has Object.fromEntries, Array.prototype.flat and flatMap, and ES2020 has dynamic imports, globalThis, and BigInt.

    Staying up to date with the language as it evolves saves you from being stumped by new APIs and syntax! Learning ES6 and Beyond will ensure you can drop into any JavaScript codebase and have the best shot at being productive on day one.

    unified enables new exciting projects like Gatsby to pull in Markdown, MDX to embed JSX, and Prettier to format it. It’s used in about 300k projects on GitHub and has about 10m downloads each month on npm.

    unified uses abstract syntax trees, or ASTs, that plugins can operate on. It can even process between different formats. This means you can parse a markdown document, transform it to HTML, and then transpile back to markdown.

    unified leverages a syntax tree specification (called unist or UST) so that utilities can be shared amongst different formats. In practice, you can use unist-util-visit to visit nodes using the same library with the same API on any supported AST.

  • VSCode Basics

    VSCode ships with quite a few features that aren’t immediately apparent. This playlist will guide you through some of the features VSCode has to offer and get you comfortable navigating and editing files in it.


    • VSCode Command Palette
    • Configuration
    • Navigation
    • Custimization
  • Code Generation in VSCode

    In any programming language or JavaScript framework, you’ll find yourself writing certain lines of code over, and over… and over again. That can be automated. VSCode uses the idea of snippets to do this. Snippets allow you to define templates that write the boilerplate for you in whenever you need.

    You can define your own snippets, download them as a package from the Marketplace or use Emmet (pre-installed) to save time and avoid writing boilerplate or commonly used patterns.

  • Development Workflows in VSCode

    VSCode can be used for almost any programming language or framework. That encompasses quite a few workflows.

    Through extensions and built-in features, you can customize VSCode to suit the workflow you need that will support your development.

  • Text Manipulation in VSCode

    Gain efficiency in navigating and manipulating text in VSCode. If all you’re using right now is your mouse, you’re leaving a lot on the table in terms of efficiency.

    VSCode gives you the ability to detect patterns in text and manipulate those patterns as you see fit. e.g. when you’re renaming a variable, you don’t want to rename just the declaration but all the uses of that variable in one file. Do so in just a few key presses.

  • React Hooks in Function Components

    React hooks can be used to add state to functional components, as well as replace the lifecycle methods that only class methods had available until now.

    This playlist goes through several different hooks available now in React, as well as how to make your own custom hooks!

  • Learn Apollo Client Hooks

    Introduced in React 16.8, Hooks are a new way to write stateful components while avoiding the pitfalls of classes.

    As a result, GraphQL developers everywhere wanted to use them for their Apollo Client components, instead of relying on render props pattern. In August of 2019 things have changed and Apollo Client now has official support for React hooks, by providing useQuery, useLazyQuery, useMutation and useSubscription hooks.

    If you'd like to learn how to use them, this playlist is for you!

  • Why Gatsby Uses GraphQL

    Why does Gatsby use GraphQL? In this series you’ll learn how to create pages in Gatsby, how data becomes hard to manage over time, and how GraphQL helps limit the complexity of data management.

  • Create Fullstack Applications with GraphQL and Apollo

    GraphQL is a query language for your API that offers a new paradigm for delivering data to clients of all varieties. In this playlist, we’ll build a small fullstack application using GraphQL, Apollo Server, Apollo Client, and React, introducing a multitude of key GraphQL concepts along the way.

    We’ll start by building the GraphQL API for a ski day counter application using Apollo Server. Then we’ll immediately send client queries to the GraphQL service to get the data. Later, we’ll incorporate mutations to change data, and we’ll integrate react-apollo to send queries and mutations from React components. Along the way, we’ll introduce useful schema design features like input types, enums, and custom scalars, and we’ll talk about client-side use cases like sending variables and caching. After watching these videos, you’ll be able to work on existing GraphQL projects or start your own with a full command of the fundamentals.
