Webpack 4 environment variables

Making local dev servers w Webpack 4

To use an environment variable in webpack, set module.exports to a function which returns the config object.

Only a function can take in env and argv as args, and you'll need those.

Then use defineWebpackPlugin to set environment variables.

Remember that Webpack 4 is "no config"; just set mode when you startup webpack dev-versus-prod in your package.json.

Kyle after assembly mentoring

TODO List for Kyle - Mentoring

"Finish out" the assembly courses

  1. Take your assembly courses and convert your notes into markdown in Github gists.
  2. Pin those gists to your Github profile.

Complete 2 C++ assignments

  1. Assignment 1: Create a class with 2-3 member functions and initialize an instance of the class in main()
  2. Assignment 2: Operator overloading (look at my github for an example!)

WIP. This is a tutorial I'm writing which is in progress :) - Amanda

Intro to binary (and some computer architecture)

Intended audience(s) include:

  • Very early career engineers who don't have a 'math background' (yet!)
  • Junior developers and interns who want to "understand" rather than just "complete tutorials"
  • Web developers who didn't take CS courses, but still want to understand "how things work" "under the hood"
