This week in Flutter #128: Advent of code 2023

I am a bit late with this link: the advent of code is a yearly event where you solve a puzzle every day from December 1st to December 25th. It’s a great way to learn a new language or to practice your skills. You can solve the puzzles in any language you want. I think it’s a great opportunity to learn Dart.

Getting better feedback on your work

by James Cook

To avoid getting non-constructive feedback like “Can we change the blue…”, you need to ask the right questions. James suggests asking when you are 30% of the way through the project, with the question “Are we on the right track?” and when you are 90% of the way through, with the question “Is there anything we’ve missed?”.
