@cmccormack Do you know where I can get a "baby spoon fed" tutorial on MSSQL? The documentation in npm is not so clear to me.

@nsonhouse This is what I used when I had to learn the basics a few years ago:

@bradtaniguchi Thanks but I was not clear.
I am referring to the following

What are you having trouble with? The docs for sql's lib is pretty good, permitting you know your JS and SQL
Mar 19 03:49 UTC
@bradtaniguchi I'm having difficulty following the documentation. I see now that I need a better understanding of promises.
Mar 19 03:51 UTC
Here's a very in-depth page on promises, great for future references, some extra learning on the API, and common example use-caess
This is for client-side javascript, but the syntax/approach is the same.

Need some help with dropdowns. I'm using react and javascript but I think if you know a little about javascript only you may be able to help. The dropdowns are set up like this now where on changing the drop selection it runs the function handleStatusChange.

    <option value="" hidden>
        please choose


As a drop down form with this.handleStatusChange to check the value of the event ( to read the value inside the <option> which was chosen... i.e. the value from the dropdown. The function to read the chosen dropdown value is something like:

  handleStatusChange = (e) => {
    // get value of selected option with, set it to state
   const selectedValue =
      // set it to state
      status: selectedValue

Is there a way to read a value from each dropdown that is NOT shown (read from instead, ie. if they each had an ID or something, how do I pass that in so that would be able to access this id.

@ezioda004 hey man any idea :D ^

what if i dont want the hero command line? @momozor
Mar 19 11:21 UTC
@TheCodingAlien I'm not sure how to do that. My experience with Heroku has always been with the Heroku's command line tool. Thus, I don't even know if there is other way to use it so far.
Mar 19 19:54 UTC
Anyhow, anyone here experienced on deploying to Heroku via Docker?
I can't get my images to be pushed there.. :cry:
