    RRU 139: Creating Gatsby Source Plugins with Dillion Megida

    In today’s episode of React Round Up, Nigerian-based developer Dillion Megida explains how you can create source plugins for Gatsby, the static site generation tool.

Dillion also shares his experience blogging for websites such as LogRocket, FreeCodecamp and Dev.to and talks us through his workflow and how he comes up with new article ideas.

    Charles Max Wood started podcasting because it sounded fun and because he wanted to talk about technology. He learned pretty quickly that it got him access to people who understood the things he wanted to learn. The reasons changed over the years, as Charles explains before he talks about the big payoff he gets now from doing the podcasts.

    RRU 137: From QA to Developer with Rani Zilpelwar

    RRU 137: From QA to Developer with Rani Zilpelwar

    Changing careers into software development is always an interesting story and Rani Zilpelwar's story is no different. In this episode, Rani, the QA developer turned software consultant, talks about how she's held almost every software role at one point or another, and how she's continuing to improve her skills now as a software consultant. The discussion includes books and websites she's found helpful to building up her knowledge, how the company she works for helped set her up for success by pairing her with a more experienced developer as a mentor when she started out, and now how / why she blogs on her own site to give back and solidify the things she's learning. Rani's deep knowledge of testing also lends itself well to her new role and she and the team discuss testing strategies and best practices from her days as a QA engineer. This is a great episode if you're looking to make your own career transition and see how other skills can apply there.
