Again a very interesting video by Vox, especially in these COVID-19/Corona times: why is it that this new disease emerged from China and not from another country? As of early March 2020, a new coronavirus, called COVID-19, is in more than 70 countries and has killed more than 3,100 people, the vast majority in China. […]
I like this review of the Mac Pro by The Verge. Very nuanced, something you don’t come by often these days. In short: It’s a hell of a machine which costs a ton. Adobe’s software is not taking advantage of all of the machine’s power. The XDR Display might or might not work for you. […]
Some notes: Great to see that Vue grew out of a personal need, not a plan to make money. Those projects always win. It requires one to invest a lot of personal time and effort into their projects … remember that, before you start complaining about something in a repository (or in a blog’s comment […]

Nice Star Wars fan film depicting Obi-Wan Kenobi as he lives in seclusion on Tatooine, all whilst keeping an eye out for a young Luke Skywalker who’s living with his aunt and uncle.
Another great entry in the Vox Earworm series: Bach’s six cello suites are considered a rite of passage for cellists. They’re masterpieces of classical music, and the prelude in G major — the first movement of the suites — is perhaps the best example of Bach’s power as a composer. In it, he’s able to […]
Straight to the point video by Ryan Lanciaux on how to use React with the aforementioned Snowpack: Thanks Ryan, saved me some research! Snowpack with React: An awesome way to build web applications →
Talk by Alex Holachek, as brought forward at React Conf 2019: As the technology to create Progressive Web Apps continues to mature, React developers have the opportunity to write web apps that in some cases can rival native ones in terms of speed and convenience. However, one barrier to feature parity is the difficulty of […]
