I've found every 2 weeks to be really effective.This meeting is for building trust, context, sharing progress on goals, professional development things like that.Principles / conceptsFocus on the report — 1:1's are primarily for the report, the employee, not for the manager or the company.70/30 — Manager should be 70% listening less than 30% talking.Honesty — be direct. Forbidden conversations.Objective — Do the work to find objective examples, provide numbers and letter grades.Flexible — Don't overthink or over structure, let it flow, let report guide conversationMoneyball firing clipPicksJohn: https://www.chia.net/JP: Tailwind is coming out with official React support!

    The SPA Episode (Single Page Apps)

    1:02:03

    John: Welcome to Iteration, a podcast about programming, development, and design.John Intro — My name is John and I am a software developer for a home services startup.JP Intro — Hi, I'm JP and I am a software developer at a small analytics startuphttps://macwright.com/2020/05/10/spa-fatigue.htmlTopics / Guiding QuestionsWhat's a SPA?From the articleThe main UI is built & updated in JavaScript using React or something similar.The backend is an API that that application makes requests against.The more techincal one:https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Glossary/SPAAn SPA (Single-page application) is a web app implementation that loads only a single web document, and then updates the body content of that single document via JavaScript APIs such as [XMLHttpRequest]() and Fetch when different content is to be shown.This therefore allows users to use websites without loading whole new pages from the server, which can result in performance gains and a more dynamic experience, with some tradeoff disadvantages such as SEO, more effort required to maintain state, implement navigation, and do meaningful performance monitoring.Why do developers choose SPAs? Do end-users care about SPAs?What SPAs have you worked on / maintained?0 —When should you reach for a SPA?That's the right use case: Desktop app to the web.Spotify, Figma, photopea.comBreaks REST might be a good time to considerCommunityWhat's wrong with this SPA's?Increased complexity — Development and deploymentOften times: 2 repositories, 2 languages or frameworks(Rails + Vue)(Node + Angular)(Rails + React)SEO + Speed — Have to do "Server Side Rendering"This reminds me of the light switches for "Smart" light bulbs. You've increased the complexity by a factor of 10 to get the exact same results.Maintainability? Stability?If not a SPA then what? (Is this a different Episode?)What's good about server rendered?How much you get for freeAsync fetchingState managementURL's just workStrong ConventionsStable minimal maintenanceWhat's bad about Server Rendered?Page ReloadCan feel clunkyLess ReactiveMobile App — Now what? SPA lays a stronger groundworkWhat's good about SPA'sBenefits are for the userDeveloper Ego'sData foundationsBreaks CRUDCommunityPushing technology forward is a good thing.What's bad about SPA'sHow much of a pain in the ass it is to Manage URL'sComplexity — Front end + Back endAuthenticationImage UploadMultiple API endpoints for a single pageState is way harder in a SPADebuggingClosing ThoughtsSPA's are great when you are breaking "REST / CRUD"SPA's are great when you need multiple consumers of the same dataThis is highly personal, you gotta go with what you love.WiFiPicksJohn — Distraction Free Phone from the book Make TimeMobile: Uninstall all "Infinity Pools" put "Parental controls" on for the rest. 3.5 hours down to 1 hour screen time.
