⎋ Mac Dev Survey 2021 — The Results @ git-tower.com

    [Apr 28, 2021]

    I think I’m most surprised by how popular Things and Notion are in their respective categories. That's not to say I think it's undeserved, they're both great, especially the latter, I’d love to work somewhere that has replaced Confluence with Notion.

    ⎋ If Your Tech Interview is Three Tech Interviews in a Trench Coat and I Do Five is It Additive or Exponential @ laurieontech.com

    [Mar 29, 2021]

    Timing is everything. A company may contact you to interview just as you're about to accept an offer. You may find an amazing role that would be perfect for past you, or future you, but not current you. It's frustrating, but it's good to recognize that a lot of job searching is out of your control.

    Example warez art

    British artist-filmmaker Oliver Payne and American painter Kevin Bouton-Scott have joined forces to produce a new documentary that tells an almost forgotten story of the ANSI scene. The Art Of Warez covers the days before the Internet when early hackers and online pirates created an original and, even today, a virtually unknown art movement.

    ⎋ Responsible Web Applications @ responsibleweb.app

    [Feb 19, 2021]

    The title for this page came from a slip of my tongue. I actually had wanted to say "responsive and accessible" web applications, but somehow "responsible" slipped out.

    Regardless of how I came up with the term, I do consider it to be fitting because I feel that we as developers have a responsibility to ensure that our application is responsive and accessible. If we don't, who will?

    ⎋ The Widening Responsibility for Front-End Developers @ css-tricks.com

    [Oct 15, 2020]

    In a stack I’m working with right now, the front end is in React, the API is in GraphQL and we use Apollo Client to work with data. We use a special “hook” in the React components to run the queries to fetch the data we need, and another special hook when we need to change that data. Guess who does that work? Is it some other kind of developer that specializes in this data layer work? No, it’s become the domain of the front-end developer.

    Nova is a new (vehemently macOS-only) code editor from Panic, the folks behind Coda. It’s like “Coda 3” except this was such a major re-write that they gave it a whole new name.
