Q: How to give team members freedom according to their ability to handle it, while making it fair?
Q: What do you do to get into or while you’re in the zone?
Answers include: Loud music, white noise, quiet when energy is there and music when energy is needed
Summary of points:
• Just a paradigm, like OO • We do that at DNAμ • Pure functions, avoid shared state, side-effects, mutation • There will always be side-effects, but you can separate them out
• Pure function: same input -> same output & no side-effects • Composition has two solutions:
• Declarative over imperative • expressions over statements • higher order functions over polymorphism
Belmer showed React: • JSX • DevTools with its replaying functionality
Mark proposed inviting three more people, Garik addad another. General agreement that it’s good to add contributors. Murat: We’re planning a new meetup group for senior coders.
Belmer: We’ve just stored plain in MySQL, no querying necessary. Froi: We’ll use Postgres native columns.
Mark proposed one team member during each meeting to do a self-assessment regarding a personal goal or project, with others being able to give advice or ask questions. No consensus, I think.
Belmer proposed presenting and teaching at schools/universities in Cebu as one of the group’s activities. General agreement it’s a good idea. :)
