To be launched later this year: LEGO Super Mario is ready to run and jump in a new real-life game. Create LEGO brick challenges for you and your friends, defeat enemies and of course, collect coins! Pretty sure my son will like it as much as I am. Press Release: The LEGO Group and Nintendo […]
In this video, which is a part of the Mailcoach video course, Freek shows us how he refactors a complex if-statement. A technique which I nowadays also like using myself – especially in a React Component’s render method – is to use early returns: instead of nesting if-statements and using else-statements, the function body uses […]
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 […]

The setup allowed the cast to shoot in multiple locations in a single day, to […]
YouTube user DigiDigger shows us how to recreate the portals from Portal. Highly interesting imo. 🤔 What happens when you mix Portal with Super Mario Bros? You get Mari0!
A video-version of How tracking pixels work by Vox: In this video, we explain how cookies work and what you should know about how they’re being used. And we get a little help from the man who invented them. Spot on “Finding Dory” analogy. One thing where they do go off a bit is that […]
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 […]
