Mastering the Art of Querying: From Python Strings to Bash Commands

In this diverse set of topics, we cover a range of programming concepts and tools. We start with Python's string contains method, which allows us to check if a string contains a specific substring. Next, we move on to TypeScript's alias feature, which simplifies complex type definitions. We then explore the "find n2 flip" problem, a classic algorithmic challenge. In the realm of shell scripting, we learn how to use the basename command to extract file names from paths, and how to count lines containing a specific string. We also delve into Jenkins, a popular continuous integration tool, and how to configure it to pull code from a GitHub organization. For front-end development, we look at Svelte's store feature, which allows us to manage global state in our applications. We also examine CSS's word break property, which controls how long words are handled in text. In the realm of macOS, we explore the Ventura sleep settings, which can help optimize battery life. We also learn about the interpupillary distance of the Oculus Quest 2, an important factor in virtual reality immersion. Finally, we cover a range of other topics, including logarithmic bases, relative imports in Python, user agent strings in Node.js, and the DOMParser API.
