Hello πŸ‘‹πŸ».

Welcome to my "Week in Review" series. Each week I'm going to share what I discovered, learned, and tested with you. This series will be my digital garden one day. Let's sow some seeds and jump right into the review.


This is one of my best performing tweets ever :)

45% of 2020 passed and many people want to reset 2020 already.
Who can blame them? A lot of bad things happened this year. But now is not the time to talk about the issues of the first 165 days of 2020. Let's take a look at this week's highlights.

Highlights

Can you believe this person does not exist? The AI behind the website uses a complicated algorithm to instantly produce a computer-generated face that looks human but is not real. The results are amazing, aren't they? The site even creates random scenes for different series - e.g. for The Office.

Jose Felix published an extensive article on dev.to with the promising title "40+ High Quality Free Resources for Web Development". There are many valuable resources on his list. Make sure you take a look. You won't regret it.

Microsoft’s VSCode source code is open source (MIT-licensed), but the product Visual Studio Code is licensed under another license and contains telemetry and tracking. Maybe you don't like it but still want to use Visual Studio Code? Then VSCodium is for you.

This is my next major milestone - deploying a new version of my personal website. I previously used Gatsby, but for the 2.0 version, NextJS is used besides Tailwind. Once the page is online, I want to increase the rate of writing and publishing new articles. One thing is important for me this time as well: my website (the theme) will be open-sourced when it's online. I will let you know when it is ready!
