    Project mention: Feeling Rusty for Interview Need Review | reddit.com/r/reactjs | 2021-02-07

    Read this https://www.robinwieruch.de/react-function-component, lots of that https://blog.isquaredsoftware.com/series/blogged-answers/ and that: https://kentcdodds.com/blog. Also Take Note is a good example of best practices in React nowadays: https://github.com/taniarascia/takenote/releases As somebody mentioned before Material UI is great, but a bit heavy for a demo project. I would check out https://chakra-ui.com/. A bit more lightweight. Good luck with the interview!

    Project mention: How to keep your Firebase project safe and secure from everyone | dev.to | 2020-11-23

    Suppose you are also developing a CLI for your app (which I am doing), you might need your API key for refreshig the user's JWT (which I am doing :) ). So just don't use the same Firebase config API key, create a new one which has only access to the things we need, in this case, we need access to the Token Service API. So you can move to the Google APIs dashboard, and then select your preferred project.
