It was a hectic week and I couldn't keep up with my advent calendar. So, I'm summarizing what I learnt in the past few days in a single post.
Listened to music, watched Goon and Raid Redemption(Indonesian movie). Learnt nothing new.
Today was not very productive. I learnt a new angle shot in fooseball and then went out with the team for laser tagging.
Didn't learn anything significant today. We were playing secret santa at office I had to pick a chit and it turns out that my secret child is a really good singer. Haven't decided what to buy as gift. (If you got any brilliant idea, tweet me : @apnerve)
The day was spent in discussing about the Workshop. Played around with `:before` and `':after` pseudo element selectors
Today I took a workshop on Frontend Engineering at ThoughtWorks along with 2 of my colleagues(senior consultants). I got to learn 2 main things during the workshop :
- Make sure that audience is close to you and the screen during the talks.
- When showing code samples, go for live coding instead of presentation. Something like Dabblet or JSFiddle comes really handy
Today, I kind of found a treasure. Last year I was working on a share widget and ran into problems with communication between pages(`iframe`) with different origins. I learnt about `window.postMessage` method today while going through a presentation by Ben Vinegar of Disqus. The presentation can be found here.
