React hooks were created to help you write functional components that are clean, extensible, and easy to understand. This week, we’ll take a look at useEvent(), the latest hook provided by the React team and dubbed the “missing piece in the original Hooks release.” It “will change the way you write modern React,” as author James Brightman puts it.
Following that, we look at how the factory design pattern can be used in Python, as well as 5 essential SQL functions for data analysis.
Furthermore, we investigate the challenges that non-English speaking coders face in their coding careers. In the coding world, English is considered the de facto lingua franca. Román, a Latin American tech worker, says when he first started out, everything was in English, and “it was very difficult to have to constantly translate and understand it in my language.”
We also look at the UK government’s plans to rein in Big Tech and how a lab-grown black hole created by scientists could potentially destroy the planet.
