What happened last week
It was a very interesting week in general. I started building a set of guides that will show how to connect Buddy, some SSG (probably I will use Astro) and different Headless CMS. Some of the CMS really surprised me with their their capabilities. Can't wait to start publishing them.
Leo Postovoit wrote a response to many of the Anti-remote arguments that are emerging from time to time. As a remote worker myself I fully agree with his arguments. I also loved this sentence "Commuting For Pizza Toppings You Never Chose" which describes many companies that don't understand why people are choosing WFH.
I love learning how things work. That's why learning about how Algolia compresses its data why something very enlightening.
I love all the Fireship movies, but this one is just amazing. Jeff Delaney showed a lot of differences between different approaches when it comes to building websites in JS... and by the way, he explains why he had to create a new library that would connect the best of all the worlds.
It's a really amazing article that can help everyone to understand how to improve a11y in their companies. The fun thing about a11y is the fact that getting rid of most problems is quite simple, yet many developers or designers prefer to spend hours arguing about why not fix some of the problems.
Jenn Junod does a great work explaining what DevRel is. To be honest, DevRel was the first job that gave me some problems explaining it to my friends and family.
Christoph Rumpel explains what Test Driven Development is and how to implement it in your project. TDD totally changes the way how you'll write your code, that's why it's not so easy to start using it.
I created a tiny one-liner script that will prevent you from deploying on Fridays. While it falls a bit under the joke category, maybe some of you will find it useful.
