Following the infamous YouTube trend in the beauty community to post about your favorite things at the end of each month, I decided to go the same route and share what I have managed to for the last 30 days, all completely programming related.
One of the best explanations of an alternative usage when it comes to the web worker API: https://macarthur.me/posts/use-web-workers-for-your-event-listeners#where-things-onclicked-for-me

A website with one article every day, like a calendar:
A good publication with quality articles on front-end: https://ponyfoo.com/
Purchased and started reading a very hands-on practical book on web security, totally worth your money: https://leanpub.com/wasec
A free book for people beginning their career in coding: https://leanpub.com/firstyearincode
A library that solves the problem of pre-fetching the input options, something small and handy, I definitely will use it more in the future: https://github.com/niksy/x-autosuggest
An article I did not fully understand (but I am striving to):
https://chrispenner.ca/posts/algebraic about the usage of lenses in functional programming to perform data mutations.
For people who are tired of tweaking bootstrap, https://getbuttercake.com/ offers a modular, more modern approach, using CSS Grid.
So I guess that is it for December!
