Conclusion
So Brian, this was a great tour of Yarn, I love that. So, once we're using Yarn, I kind of got the spiel, but we can kind of go to the website to kind of check that out, are there any other r recommendations you have for resources, people to look at? No, I've solely been using their documentation on the website, it's helped me out greatly in figuring out the new approaches to how Yarn does things. Okay, and for folks that might want to check more into like how you do npm stuff, to kind of see how it compares to Yarn, check out, Joe Eames has a great course here on Pluralsight, I this it's npm play by play, or no, it's not play by play. I think it's like getting starting with npm, or Playbook. That's it. There we go, NPM Playbook. So Joe is, he's a good friend of ours, and he's given a really good course of npm, and one of the things I love in there, is not a lot of people talk about and show you how to use npm scripts a lot, and that's a great introduction to how you can use that, and Yarn can actually take advantage of those, so it'd be a great thing as a complement to this course. Yeah, definitely. Hey, thanks for coming on man, I learned a lot. Thanks. I appreciate it.
