Garnering 35,000 visitors, 7,000 users, and over 1,000 GitHub stars in just one week, @nutlope’s innovative app streamlines voice note capture, transcription, and action item extraction, offering an accessible and open-source solution.

With a refreshingly straightforward approach, @nicolasmontielf turns a common pain point—ineffective code reviews—into an opportunity for improvement. By advocating for a holistic understanding of code changes through thoughtful documentation, they inject a dose of creativity into the typically technical realm of programming practices.

Thoroughly grasping the tools you regularly use as a dev can improve your overall understanding as a developer. @jdtoombs talks about how learning Neovim has been time well spent on multiple levels.

Follow along with @​​farshed as they build a simple neural network in Rust. No ML libraries involved here, it’s just vanilla Rust; this guidance can easily be applied to JS or Python if you’d prefer.

Inbox security is incredibly important and so is keeping your personal information private. Take a page from @nelsonfigueroa’s book to not only protect your data, but also retaliate against spammers to stop them in their tracks.
