Cel­e­brate good times

Web Designer - - Meta Welcome -

The web is al­ways mov­ing for­ward. There isn’t a day that goes by with­out some code ge­nius some­where tweak­ing, cre­at­ing or sim­ply mak­ing a code­base bet­ter, and Javascript is no dif­fer­ent from the rest. There is al­ways an up­date to a li­brary, a new tool to make your cod­ing life bet­ter, a new API ready to change the way you code your projects.

Plus, in the lat­est tu­to­rial in our Re­act se­ries we show you how to man­age ac­tions with Re­dux Thunk. En­joy.

While the con­cept of a web com­po­nent has been around since 2011, the spec­i­fi­ca­tions have con­stantly changed. In 2018 things set­tled down
