Been a while since I last checked in. Things have been going pretty great, fortunately! I've been tasked with creating actual React components/wrappers, so that's been exciting. There's been a lot of head scratching and asking questions, but that's to be expected, and it'll only get easier from here. A couple lessons I've learned from … Continue reading A Couple Lessons
Dre hit me with a problem the website was having with service workers. Turns out that none of the developers have much experience with them, so he asked me to look into it. What he wanted to figure out is how to get a particular piece of the service-worker.js code, that comes packaged into create-react-app, … Continue reading Service Workers and More C++
Finished with the tests this past Wednesday! Hopefully the next assignment I get is more in the UI development wheelhouse. I know that testing is important, but I'm itching to do a bit more of the work that comes to mind when we think of "front end development". For some reason, I'm not terribly motivated … Continue reading Tests Over and C++
Thought I was all done with the tests when I last verified that they worked, but they just had to come back into my life. Last Tuesday, Dre asked me to take a look at them because they weren't working when using the option to run them remotely. I said sure. I just wish I … Continue reading Tests Are Over (Hopefully)
Did a few more things for work over the past couple days. First thing was to create an npm command that would ONLY run the e2e tests, and not all the .test files in the test folder. It was a bit of a head scratcher, because previously you only had to type "jest" in the … Continue reading A Couple Things Here and There
Started up a new web development project yesterday. Boy, it’s been a while since I did anything related to that. Since I started talking with Dre and working on testing, I haven’t done anything else web development related, only Java. Dre told me that we’re in a bit of a “waiting” period right now, so … Continue reading Now We Wait…
The past couple weeks I've been working on implementing the tests for the cases that the QA guy came up with. It's been mostly smooth, but there have been hiccups here and there. The biggest hiccup to overcome was that of email activation. Forgotten password and sign up are two flows that require email activation, … Continue reading Testing, testing, 1 2 3
It's been a while, readers. Well, a lot has happened since the last time I checked in, so why don't I bring you up to speed? Last time we talked, I had just been added to the front end code base for Dre's site. Shortly after that we had a video chat during which he … Continue reading Huge News!
Yesterday, Dre gave me permissions to the front end of the company website! I cloned the directory, and I ran npm i and npm start just to see if things worked locally. Success! It was pretty late last night, so I left it at that. Today I'm going to go through the directories and see … Continue reading Added to the Code Base!
Last time I checked in, I told you guys that I was waiting on my cousin's husband to (who I'll refer to as Dre from now on) to send me my next assignment after reading Object Oriented Analysis and Design. He had given me some basic things from CodeAcademy to look at regarding HTML and … Continue reading Graphql and Apollo
