'URL to SQL'  full stack web developer

Bio

Senior Software Developer of Ruby on Rails and VueJS applications. What I enjoy most about web development is that it boils down to effective communication. I work best on small and medium size remote teams who employ tools like Slack and Jira to ship software. I try to roll my R's when I say SCRUM. Feel free to contact me if my profile matches your needs. And, thanks for stopping by!

today I learned about TIL

There are many small and simple moving parts to know as a full stack developer. For example, I have a simple table with rows that expand into a drawer for more details. I wrote a lot of breakpoints on a simple drawer to make it look good on responsive screens. But today I learned the power of colspan on a td. That one little attribute was all that was needed to make my drawer fit perfectly inside my table. Sometimes I feel like I should know all these little details by now.

No matter how much time I spend coding, and I spend a lot of my time coding, there is always going to be something else to learn. That colspan showed me I am setting unrealistic expectations to think I will no longer TIL. Which is a silly thing to aspire. After all, why I love this profession is because of the constant learning. Each day I learn something new and get a little bit better. Yes, I am getting better but I hope to never stop learning.
