Yet Another Newsletter LOL: New Beginnings

Before we get started, some news. Friday was my last day at Netlify. I’ve decided to join a startup as a founding engineer! I’m nervous and excited at the same time. Check my socials for the announcement tomorrow. 👀

And with that, another week, another newsletter. Let's get to it!

Around the Web

  • Use Grep like a Boss — I’m OK on the command line, but grep is one of those tools I don’t know that well, so this was a nice find for me.
  • Chris Sev has released a bunch of his courses for free. If you’re looking to learn some React, Tailwind or become more productive with VS Code, check it out!
  • Islands & Server Components & Resumability, Oh My! — My very recent old co-worker Ryan Carniato dives into a lot of concepts that have popped up in the frontend space over the past couple of years. Definitely worth a read.
  • Partykit releases their new API Party.Server to make it even easier to create multi-player digital experiences.

Fun Stuff

I came across this in my feed this week. Cassidy Williams (@cassidoo) made a fun game called 13 potions! Check it out!

Words of Wisdom for the Week

Do good things for others, for no reason at all. It makes life more fun.
