In this episode, Donn answers a listener’s question. The listener wanted to know how to choose what to learn next in Tech.
Donn provides 6 tips (actually 7 if you count a hidden one) on how to pick what technology to learn next. He provides a simple framework that will help you check whether you should pursue a particular technology or not.
In this episode Donn talks about why you need to learn React (or Flutter) – so you can truly understand the Unidirectional data flow pattern in a framework that was built for that purpose alone.
Working with other frameworks which bolt on a custom unidirectional data flow is often hard to understand. When you work with React and learn how it works, the concept of Unidirectional data flow starts to make much more sense as that is the default way to implement UI’s in technologies like React (and Flutter).
This exposes you to the pattern and helps you understand it. In turn, this will help you become a better developer.
In this episode, Donn talks with Mitch Tabian about Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile, also known as KMM.
Mitch explains what KMM is, why he decided to use it, and how it works from a developer’s perspective. The goal was to build an app and develop both the iOS and Android versions. Mitch talks about his experience in building a KMM app. We cover the pros and cons, what worked vs what did not, and his advice on using KMM going forward. Mitch also shares content about how to build native components in Jetpack Compose and SwiftUI as well as architectures used in his KMM project.
In this episode, Donn talks with Glenn Leifheit from Microsoft about a concept known as “Secure Development Lifecycle”. Glenn is a Senior Security Program Manager at Microsoft.
