    Show Notes 04:22 - What is it?
    https://drafts.csswg.org/css-nesting-1/#nest-prefixed https://twitter.com/argyleink/status/1371874777548267520 06:02 - Why nest?
    Easier to read Easier to write Prevents refactoring errors, allows for dry-er code. No more typing a parent div 100 times, with a possibility of screwing it up. 08:13 - When to use nesting
    Nesting is often overused Only nest what you would have written un-nested with a short hand (e.g. don’t nest just for the sake of it) .container .item {} .container .item a {} Use it for scoping 10:06 - Nesting prefixes
    In order to nest CSS, you must first start it with a nesting selector .tweet { & > p { } &.media-included { color: green; } & + .tweet { } // sibling & p { } // descentang } Component-based — tweet, card, company, Link article{ color: blue; & { color: red; } } and must be the first child of a compound selector
    12:44 - @nest rule / media queries
    Mostly just a visual way to show nested .foo { display: grid; @media(orientation: landscape) { & { grid-auto-flow: column; } } } .foo { display: grid; @media (orientation: landscape) { & { grid-auto-flow: column; } @media (min-inline-size > 1024px) { & { max-inline-size: 1024px; } } } } /* equivalent to .foo { display: grid; } @media (orientation: landscape) { .foo { grid-auto-flow: column; } } @media (orientation: landscape) and (min-inline-size > 1024px) { .foo { max-inline-size: 1024px; } } */ 16:30 - How to use nesting today

    Show Notes 02:10 - How do you handle token refresh when multiple API calls are made at the same time? Let’s says you get a 401 and do acquire a new token, but that will only be used by the first API call, while the other parallel APIs would still use the old one and error out. This has caused me to sort of artificially limit the total requests to be made to 1. How do you deal with it?
    06:40 - What service do you guys use for video storage and optimization? I am currently building out a side project that will require some video hosting so I figured I would ask the experts.
    15:22 - I’m trying to teach myself web development and I’m having problems making up the logic for my personal projects. I would have to watch YouTube tutorials or look at other people’s code in order to implement simple features to my website and I’ve been feeling pretty stupid for not spending the time to think of it. I feel like I’m missing out on knowing how to problem solve for myself whenever I copy other people’s code and try to understand them afterwards.
    19:27 - I just landed my first web development job after following The Odin Project and building personal projects for about a year. It tripled my income so I am incredibly excited! I have been using a PHP framework which was developed by one of my coworkers and has no documentation. In order to understand the code, I either have to read a bunch of source code or ask one of the other developers questions. While I am doing well, I can’t help but feel as if I am working way too slow and asking way too many questions. I assume this is imposter syndrome and lots of people deal with it, but how would you suggest dealing with this type of anxiety?
    25:11 - Monorepos, yes or no?
    29:43 - As a brand new self-taught web developer, how would you know if you’re ready to apply for junior positions?
    32:03 - Will there ever be a .eat domain or are the pre-order sites just ripping you off? Would like to know who decides what TLDs are possible or not.
    35:26 - I’m currently employed as a fullstack developer but want to build a portfolio for future job hunting. Would you say it’s ok to reference a project or two from an employer? My problem is that the only projects I have outside are mostly just smaller tools built for myself for fun.

    Show Notes 05:00 - What is the n+1 problem?
    The N+1 problem can happen in any language but is especially prevalent in GraphQL because it’s so easy to query relationships. 09:33 - The solution
    The solution to the n+1 problem is to batch the queries. As you loop over each podcast, keep an array of host IDs to lookup. Once you have looped over the podcasts, make a single query to the database with your large array of podcast host Ids. 11:11 - Should you care?
