Dev Community tweeted my blog on "Accept Cookies? or Not?"
Had received a lot of compliments saying - "It was as easy as taking a bite of a cookie"!
This made my week!

My biggest win is seeing our team ship some really awesome things this week for Forem.

  • Authors and admins can lock threads
  • Posts can be pinned to feeds by admins
  • Accessibility linting in post previews
  • Custom "lock screens" for private Forems.

And some more I'm not thinking of. Our eng team is making DEV and other communities better every day!

Getting cross-over podcasts successfully released covering WWDC21. Always more technical things to deal with than you think there are going to be.

Also finding some time to NOT work on anything for at least two evenings and just kicking back without feeling guilty.
