Another week, another newsletter. Let’s get to it!

Around the Web permalink

  • Matt Pocock of TypeScript fame dropped a fantastic package this week. You’ve heard of CSS resets, but now there is ts-reset. More things will likely be added over time, but you can drop this in your project today. Note it does change the return types of certain things, so definitely test it out first!

  • Josh W. Comeau drops another amazing post. This time about Understanding useMemo and useCallback. Definitely worth a read!

  • Exciting stuff happening on the Angular front! Yes Angular. As Sarah Drasner mentions, it’s a renaissance.

Words of Wisdom for the Week permalink

Just a reminder that we’re built-as human beings-to respond well to positive interactions.

According to “Make us React: The neuroscience of Narrative”, “If you treat me well, in most cases my brain will synthesize oxytocin and this will motivate me to treat you well in return.”

Treating people well is the right thing to do, but there’s also incentive. You’re more likely to grow in an environment you feel supported in, to innovate, and to be productive in that environment.
