So I just decided to start writing technical articles to help me get a deeper understanding of programming concepts, and also help fellow beginners like myself in the process. And where better to do that than Dev.to 😁.
As I was searching around the site for some inspiration though, I lost my connection, and I have to say, the offline page is really cool.
Having just recently learnt about service workers, I can really appreciate how useful it was. Instead of feeling frustrated over suddenly going offline, (mind you, my WiFi bar was full -- or, LieFi, I should say), the unexpected witty message made me feel better than if I had continued my search 😅.
This just goes to show that no connection shouldn't equal to no content, or boring content. I feel like as coders, we don't get to experience the other side as much so we might not appreciate what that extra effort to turn a seemingly bad situation into an uplifting one means.
Whoever did the offline page, it was a good idea. I'm glad I came across it. It gave me an idea for my first Dev.to post so... Hello World! 🎉
Here's to many more 🥂. I'll go play outside now.
