I learned one the key differences between Netflix DGS and Spring GraphQL. Before I thought they were about the same, but turned out for subscriptions DGS usess the 'old' Apollo way, and Spring the 'new' The Guild way. So depending on your GraphQL client, probably only one of them works with subscriptions.

I've been playing around with the Hotwired stack just for the fun of it.

This stack + Tailwindcss certainly seems like a really productive way to write software if it's the right tool for the job and you could commit to following the constraints very well.

I wouldn't adopt either just for enthusiasm, it's a real commitment to a pattern.

This week I learned that Thingworx still has platform bugs I haven't found yet. Discovered another one this week that prevents mashup parameter bindings from being mapped in certain directions. I had to rework a bit to get around that using Session variables.

On the less annoying side, I'm getting better at Visual Studio's keyboard shortcuts.

Started learning Ruby. Just got to the hashes section, realized that they are similar to dictionaries in Python.
