When should you npm and when should you yarn?
Yarn installs packages in parallel. Yarn is optimized to fetch and install multiple packages simultaneously.

How can you make sure your dependencies are safe?

What are the differences between
VARCHARdata types (MySQL)?
It is a datatype in SQL which is used to store character string of fixed length specified. If the length of string is less than set or fixed length then it is padded with extra blank spaces so that its length became equal to the set length. Storage size of CHAR datatype is of n bytes(set length). We should use this datatype when we expect the data values in a column are of same length.
It is a datatype in SQL which is used to store character string of variable length but maximum of set length specified. If the length of string is less than set or fixed length then it will store as it is without padded with extra blank spaces. Storage size of VARCHAR datatype is equal to the actual length of the entered string in bytes. We should use this datatype when we expect the data values in a column are of variable length.
