What Happened Last Week - Issue #5
This week: Microsoft being Microsoft, A11y, Ultrasonic payments, Cyberpunk, WebC, and much more.
What happened last week
I can finally share this - with the end of the month I'm leaving Buddy. It's a bit sad because working here was really an amazing adventure. Soon I will announce what will be my next workplace. I won't lie - I'm really excited about the future.
Geoffrey Huntley wrote an amazing article about VCS and the fact that Microsoft still behaves like Microsoft. This time they are just doing it better, investing in Open Source and pretending to be different.
Nathaniel explains why should always check if our website works with JS disabled. I'm really surprised by the number of people who are blocking it (or scripts have crashed).
This article by Charlie Gerard is quite amazing. While passing data using sound isn't something that unusual, the fact it's all done using JS is quite mindblowing. I never was a fan of JS, but looking at what we can achieve with it now is really changing my mind.
Even though Cyberpunk 2077 didn't have the perfect start I really sank into the Night City. Yesterday there was a premiere of the Netflix series and probably at the moment I'm writing I'm halfway there.
Zach Leatherman just announced webc - an HTML compiler for Single File Web Components. I really like the simplicity and the fact it is framework agnostic.
I didn't have enough time to play with Capri more, but it looks very promising. It also has the Island architecture and it's prepared to work with headless CMSs.
It's not a surprise that WordPress Developer is in the top 10. The interesting thing is that it's a separate position apart from Software Engineer.
Still, WordPress, which is considered by many developers as the most dreadful CMS, is the most popular CMS which leads to many job openings.
