Today we introduce you our 70th weekly digest! Almost every week Syndicode selects and composes the most important and interesting news from the IT world. Technologies and conferences, hacks and releases, issues and solutions. We deliver them filtered and prioritized. Like the best-selected fruits from the autumn garden… Enjoy our very special ‘Syndicode Digest #70 – Sticky orchard’! p.s. ‘Sticky’ because we hope that some of the advice and technologies will stay with you and help you in your future projects!
All the week long we couldn’t wait for this chance to share with you all those interesting and important news we’re sharing today! Of course, we could write about each of them separately. But you must agree, that if a piece of news is included in the digest it has more value for the reader. That means it was selected and kept for the special moment. The same thing is happening with good developers – they don’t need instantly share all their knowledge, but to keep, accumulate and just use where it is most appropriate. Read our new Syndicode Digest #69 – Razorblade strokes. And listen too! If you understand what is hidden in the digest’s name…
Sometimes you think that there’s no time to read all of your updates and important news. The developers’ world is so dynamic that you would hardly ever reach the end of your newsfeed. But you can peck some of the most important stuff from our weekly ‘Syndicode Digest #68 – Vegan pecks’! We did all the hard work for you! For instance, you should know that Firefox 62 added support for Variable Fonts, or that Visual Studio Code released a new version this August, with Settings editor UI and Custom menu bar… Let’s move to the main part!
As you might know, Babel is a JS transpiler that is popular for its ability to turn ES6 or ES7 into the code that can run on your browsers and devices. As most of them still support older standards. With Babel, you can write your code in the latest conventions and not worry about compatibility errors. It’s been 3 years from the las Babel update – Babel 6. And now we want you to meet Babel 7 huge release!
Nobody is perfect. And you too. And your code, project, commit etc. The only way to find out the how you rate what you did is the level how happy you are with it. The same thing happening with bad evaluations. Who are they, those experts who can tell you that your contribution (you have spent several months to complete) is a disaster? All the opinions are subjective. So relax and enjoy your lovely long-created ‘disaster’. And make it better next time, please. p.s. Our ‘ Syndicode Digest #67 – Imperfect aftermath’ is not perfect too! But so good!

A ‘store’ is one of the Redux core concepts, and when you use Redux it’s vital to understand how to structure the data in this store.

To clarify, Reselect is a Selector library for Redux, with memoization ability.
