For me, finding dev.to has been really important this week. For years in various roles I've been a contributor to online forums, but normally in the games development space. Finding a great community where I can learn, write and reflect on more mainstream topics is very important to me.
So this week I joined dev.to, read an article, got inspired and wrote js-coroutines - something I've needed (and apparently a bunch of other people too) for years. js-coroutines allows you to split up heavy processing, sorts, JSON operations etc across multiple frames keeping 60fps.
Here's my article on how it works.
I've had great feedback, learned loads, built and open sourced something fundamentally useful. Weeks don't normally get to be that successful. So it's corny I know, but thanks dev.to community.
