1:35 - Q: I prefer using grid-row and grid-column instead of grid-area. But is grid-area more performant? For example, in Flexbox, it's a best practice to use the shorthand flex property instead of writing out flex-grow, flex-shrink and flex-basis.
4:04 - Q: Do you have any advice how to deploy an application? What do you think about AWS, Zeit, Heroku, Firebase? Do you use automation tools like Circle CI or Buddy.works? I also wonder if we should keep whole application on one server, or split it up.
13:07 - Q: Do you think Typescript adds value to React, or more complexity than value? When should you choose Typescript for a project?
22:02 - Q: Have you seen the live coding going on at Twitch? Thoughts? Maybe a Syntax stream in the future? There's a good list at livecoders.dev. Thanks for all you do. Keep killin' it!
29:55 - Q: There are plenty of places saying that it is important to secure API keys by not embedding them in front-end code. Cool. I'm on board! But there is not many that tell you specifically how to do this. How do you safely use an API key in a CRUD project?
34:15 - Q: Do you plan to launch a Syntax.fm app?
45:49 - Q: I was hired as a junior developer at a company in the last year. It's my first development job and I was so excited. The interview and application were all about React and fullstack development. However now that I've been here a while, I have found out the company does primarily dev ops work. None of this was mentioned in the interview or application, but it looks like soon it will be the majority of my workload. I am feeling very discouraged and was wondering what you guys would do in this situation?
