I see Facebook are hiring JS devs in London. I'm tempted to apply. I don't think they'll pay what I want, but would be curious to see if I make the grade!

I may not be the best JavaScript developer in the world, but I do have the best beard.

Getting hired as a dev can be hard when you have 0 commercial experience, but it gets way easier: 0 years experience: tough 1 years experience: You have options 3 years experience: Great position to be in 5+ years experience: I wish recruiters would stop blowing up my phone!

A closure is when you finally realise that your code has been cheating on you all along and you can finally move on.

Not gonna lie breaking in without experience can be hard. I got into it via an internal job switch.

Depends on the market you’re looking to get hired in. An an area with a high demand for devs I don’t see why not. If you have time to do some paid for (the rates will be looow) work as an online freelancer, this can help too.

The point in tdd is code guides the design, can’t do that if you only test edge cases. But would agree you don’t need a huge unit test coverage I React apps. I’ve been forced to do a lot of unit tests for presentational components, which IMO is a waste of time.

New Star Trek series starring Patrick Stewart as the titular character comes out soon. Looking forward to "Star Trek: Picard". Jean Luc was always the best!

True, but they serve different purposes.

Well I guess more a case of not unit testing / double checking my work. Not the only flaw I can see. But I hit the limit of time I was willing to spend. They did hint I could embellish the solution, I guess other candidates did.

Yeah that’s a bug. Socket won’t close! No wonder I didn’t get the job.

I would say it remembers the environment in which it was defined. Subtle difference.

Bitcoin is the currency that just won't die. Now all those sh*tcoins I bought just need to rally too and I'll be in profit!

Generic, reuseable web socket HOC. Wraps a component in a websocket, provides is as a socket prop. Didn't see how useEffect could work for this as it needs to connect on mount, disconnect on unmount.

Data provider / container for the order book. When the socket is ready and we have a currency pair it will subscribe to it, unsub and sub to new pair when the pair changes. Uses state so only this rerenders when the socket has data. This is wrapped in a websocket provider.
