In this episode, Donn and Kaushik talk about one of the age old bike shedding topics – code formatting, and how you can solve it with automation and tools.
Code formatting can turn into an endless debate amongst peers and teams, and what Kaushik and Donn have found is that this can be delegated to a tool and automated. Freeing you and your team of having to worry about proper indentation, bracket placement, etc. By relying on a well defined tool and some automation you can clean your code up, make it much more uniform and easier maintain.
We talk about ktfmt, a Kotlin code formatter that was released by Facebook. We dive into ktlint, detekt and more. We also dive into spotless which can help you by integrating ktfmt into your gradle build pipeline.
In this episode, Donn and Kaushik talk about the fear of shipping, some impostor syndrome and how it contributes to uncertainty and doubt in your capabilities as a software developer.
Recently Donn embarked on a mission to come up with an idea and ship it within 24 hours (which he did do). The end result was a net benefit of confidence, speed and skill acquisition. This helped reduce any doubt, uncertainty and ultimately fear of shipping a product faster.
That’s what this conversation is about … how to doing a project like the 24 hour MVP can remove fear, uncertainty and doubt and help you ship your side project/products faster.
