In this episode, Donn talks to Jay Ohms about Turbo Native for Android, Hotwire, and how to build apps faster with Hotwire, Turbo, Stimulus, and Strata. Jay is an Android developer at Basecamp.com and Hey.com and has been building Hey with Android Turbo since it has been released (he’s one of the developers of it).
You’ll learn what Hotwire is, how to use it with Android Turbo (and Stimulus and Strata) and how you can create apps faster and more maintainable by marrying the concepts of the web with native code. It’s a fascinating technology, and one that Donn will be using very shortly for a SaaS product he’s working on.
In this episode, Donn talks to software developer Alan Hill about the Growth Mindset and how it applies to software development and life in general.
They chat about pull request feedback lifecycle, learning new tech, and how applying a growth mindset can advance you in your career further than you could have imagined. They wrap up by going through Fixed Mindset vs Growth Mindset “back and forth” to discuss the differences.
In this episode, Donn talks about the importance of following code conventions and coding styles in codebases.
You’ll run into various different coding conventions throughout your career. Sometimes it’s as an employee, sometimes it’s as a freelancer or consultant or just a small side project. The number of coding “styles” that you’ll see will blow your mind as you work through your career. The big question is … should you adhere to the current coding convention that is used in the app/file/etc or should you use your own favorite or an industry standard?
In this episode, I’ll help explain the differences so you can make an informed decision going forward.
