    Mani provides us with strategies and tactics to get Deep Work time and how to get our minds into that focused state for hours at a time.





    He has read hundreds of books that have taught him the secrets to getting more done by getting into this state.





    He starts by telling us how he was passed over for a promotion at Qualcomm in favor of someone younger and less experienced and how that inspired him to figure out what the other guy was doing differently. He learned that he needed to get more done with the time he was spending on his projects.





    The trick? Deep Work!





    Deep Work is the ability to spend uninterrupted, focused time on a task to bend your entire mind toward the goal.





    Other developers call it "Flow" or "the Zone."

    JSJ 459: Codota Tabnine and the Rise of Ai-powered Developer Tooling with Kyle Simpson with Kyle Simpson PT 2

    Imagine a world in which your editor / IDE can actually write some of your code for you. Where you're able to produce software faster and more efficiently because your development environment "knows" what you want to do, based on code you've written before. Turns out you can start experiencing this in the present using the free TabNine editor extension by Codata. In this episode Kyle Simpson, Codata's Lead of Developer Empowerment, joins the panel to describe how they use Machine Learning to enhance and accelerate software development. Kyle explains what's already possible in the present, and what ML technology promises to enable in the future for developer experience.

    JSJ 455: Introducing and Understanding Svelte and Sapper with Mark Volkmann

    JSJ 455: Introducing and Understanding Svelte and Sapper with Mark Volkmann

    This week the panel is joined by Mark Volkmann to discuss Svelte and how it compares and differs from front-end frameworks such as React and Angular. Mark has written a book and has given talks about Svelte and also about Sapper, an application framework built on top of Svelte. He explains to the panel how Svelte components are defined differently than other JavaScript frameworks, and how they are actually compiled into the production code, which isn’t dependent on any external libraries. He also explains why and how Svelte forgoes the use of a virtual DOM, using direct DOM manipulations instead. Finally he describes Sapper and explains how it can be used to quickly and easily create Web-apps that use SSR, static pages generation and dynamic routing.
