New in Chrome 103: HTTP 103 early hints, Local Font Access, AbortSignal.timeout, and more!

Chrome 103 is rolling out now! There’s a new HTTP status code that helps the browser decide what content to preload before the page has even started to arrive. The Local Font Access API gives web applications the ability to enumerate and use fonts installed on the user’s computer. There’s an easier way to implement timeouts on asynchronous APIs.

The Power of JS Generators

Generators have been around in JavaScript since ES2015, yet remain largely ignored by many JS devs, who don’t see why or how they’d use them in their day-to-day work.

Every Beginner React Developer Makes This Mistake With State

By far one of the biggest beginner React mistakes I see is developers storing derived state. This is a huge problem that is incredibly hard to detect unless you know what you are looking for.

Doodles-as-A-Service Repo

CC BY-SA 4.0

👋 Aloha, this is where you can grab most of my tech doodles and sketchnotes.

I have been posting my tech doodles on Twitter and Microsoft open-source projects and I am repeatedly asked where to get the original images, especially from people who saw some of my works out of context on some social media, so I decided to put all together on one GitHub repo.

Here are some of the latest giditally created handdrawn doodles, as well as photos of analog ones.

All my doodles are under Creative Commons license. So please share with attributions. And I definitely don't want you to NFT them without my permission (and I won't permit you because you don't own them. They are open-sourced to be freely available for educational purpose only!)

Enjoy 🌺

Dolt – It's Git for Data

Dolt – It's Git for Data

Dolt is Git for Data!

Dolt is a SQL database that you can fork, clone, branch, merge, push and pull just like a git repository. Connect to Dolt just like any MySQL database to run queries or update the data using SQL commands. Use the command line interface to import CSV files, commit your changes, push them to a remote, or merge your teammate's changes.

All the commands you know for Git work exactly the same for Dolt. Git versions files, Dolt versions tables. It's like Git and MySQL had a baby.

We also built DoltHub, a place to share Dolt databases. We host public data for free. If you want to host your own version of DoltHub, we have DoltLab. If you want us to run a Dolt server for you, we have Hosted Dolt.
