Yet Another Newsletter LOL: Hello Hacktoberfest!

October already! Oh, my gourdness! And with that, another week, another newsletter. Let's get to it!

Around the Web

  • SWR & Fine Grained Cache Control on Netlify
  • Hacktoberfest – Hard to believe we're already at another Hacktoberfest. Are you participating? I definitely will be. Also, where I work, OpenSauced, we have two repositories open for Hacktoberfest contributions. The app repository and our hot repository.
  • This past year Matt Pocock released ts-reset which is solid, but it also reminded me about Sindre Sorhus' type-fest. Both interesting options if you have a TypeScript project.
  • Turso had their launch week. Plenty of goodies if you're looking into an edge database.
  • If you're tired of CAPTCHAs but need something like this for your app, Cloudflare has you covered with Turnstile. And it even has a great audio option. Accessibility FTW.

Fun Stuff
