👋 Hello Dev!
It’s been a while since the last email. Well, I’ve been busy. But I haven’t stopped writing, just so you know. I am still writing almost every day.
I’ve been busy updating and creating documentation for the company I am currently working for as a Dev Advocate. Sixty-five documentation pieces of editing, re-writing, and then re-write, with some help. It has been an ongoing project for more than two months now, and still not done with it.
Another thing I experienced along the way is that at times, working on documentation is different from writing a tech post. More thoughts on that later.
In between, to take a break and practice the art of coding, I did update my blog’s layout. It’s nothing special. Did some changes to make my personal experience of maintaining a blog becomes a little bit easy.
I hope you like the new change 👉

Wrote an introductory post about how to set up a React web app using Parcel, build components using React Native core components, and finally, share these components between the mobile and web applications with React Native for Web.
I had fun writing it and realized there is much more to explore in this realm for sharing code in React ecosystem. Have you tried a different method? Talk to me about it, or leave a comment below.
In this post, I shared some of the best no-code/low-code back-end platforms to use in 2021. Most of the back-end platforms mentioned in this post are based on the experience I had when using them.
With my best knowledge and depending on the use case, I try to highlight their unique features. If the platform offers scalability, and if it is flexible enough or not. If it is based on GraphQL or exposes a RESTful API. All of these platforms are front-end agnostic.
When working on React Native or Expo applications, it is important to create focus to get in a flow. Sometimes, there are a lot of tasks to cover and very little time. To help focus on the task ahead, one way to speed up development is to use full-screen mode for iOS simulators. For example, a focused environment on my laptop screen includes zero visibility for Dock and the menu bar.
The RCTBridge required dispatch_sync to load RCTDevLoadingView has become a common occurrence when developing React Native apps with version 0.64 and 0.65.I came across a solution for this that I shared in this blog post.
I purchased a new Macbook Air based on M1 chips. My previous Macbook Pro stopped working without any reason 😭. Thus, after going through the process of setting up a new machine within seven months, I made updates to one of my most read blog posts this year:
Check it out if you are planning to buy a Macbook based on Apple Silicon chip or are curious how I set up my work machine.
