Hello, it's Robin. I am the author of books such as The Road to React and much more content about JavaScript and its ecosystem.

This is my newsletter which delivers comprehensive tutorials, books, and courses straight to your inbox. Quality content only. Give it a chance and become a better developer every month.

Hi everyone.
Yesterday my React Freelance Checklist was well received! If you are interested in freelancing, send me an email with your questions and I will try to cover these in my next blog post.
There is more to share with you from the content that I worked on over the last months! But before I get started, I want to get your opinion on a topic:

What's the next The Road to ... ?

Getting Started with Deno
Deno, an alternative to Node, is a runtime for server-side JavaScript and TypeScript.
The hype around Deno’s release last year has been big!
Around this time, I have written an Deno tutorial series which I just recently went through again, because the translation has been published in a German magazine.
It’s extensive and up-to-date, so check it out:
  1. Deno Introduction
  2. Deno + Oak
  3. Deno + Oak + REST API

Best Practices for Styled Components in React
I worked on a several freelance projects where I mainly implemented the frontend in React with an in-house team of developers.
Surprisingly, for most teams styled components was the default option.
Over time I collected best practices for styled components and started to introduce these in my other freelance projects. This really helped to streamline the efforts of all developers and to scale the application’s styling. That’s why I wanted to share these with you!
What are your best practices when working with styled components?
React Table Library
Last month, I presented you React Table Library. How do you like it?
One of the things I am most proud of is how React Table Library treats server-side data as first-class citizen (tutorial). Server-side operations such as pagination, sort, or search are all opt-in.
In a deep dive, I share how I designed the remote API for a massive React tree table which should be able to consume thousands of data entries.
I always value such insights from developers working on large scale applications, so I figured I wanted to share these insights with you too.
Pick of the Motnh
A while ago I recommended Dark as one of my favorite shows. It’s not often that a German production makes it to an international audience. Now the same applies to Bad Banks which is an entertaining show from Germany.
That’s it from my side for this month. Let me know what you think about the content and don’t forget to vote for the next The Road to … :-)
