Hello, everyone!

Let me introduce a list of the best open-source findings for November 2019.

If you want to have more awesomeness, including new and useful open-source tools, great articles, and excellent talks - you can join my telegram channel called @OpensourceFindings (mirror link).

In this list we will discuss: Rust, TypeScript, JavaScript, Go, and Python.
This includes web development, devops and QA tooling, and DX improvements.
