Gary stuck around after our Vim interview to share some of his Vim setup with me. If you’ve never seen Gary use Vim, this is a must-watch. The guy moves at the speed of thought. 🏃♂️
This expands on topics that we have discussed in Ship It! #11 and covers community findings on the practices that make the biggest difference for:
- Higher productivity
- Improvement in code quality
- End-user satisfaction
- Software developer retention
Doing ops properly is hard. Most of us are failing & learning every day. Some of us manage to have fun too.
HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD OF GIT WORK TREES??? WHAT THE EFF. They are so incredible. You have to check them out!!! In this video I go over them briefly, assuming you are smart enough to understand them, and also show you my workflow with vim! Its fantastic!
This talk by Brittany Storoz from JSConf EU 2018 is sooo good! If you’ve ever wondered why we call bugs bugs, why we throw and catch exceptions, or why we use foo and bar as placeholder variables, give it a 👀
Here’s a sneak peek of our upcoming episode of The Changelog (plus bonus videos) starring Julia Evans, Drew Neil, Suz Hinton, and Gary Bernhardt!
Adam Wathan reveals Tailwind’s new JIT compiler:
One of the hardest constraints we’ve had to deal with as we’ve improved Tailwind CSS over the years is the generated file size in development. With enough customizations to your config file, the generated CSS can reach 10mb or more, and there’s only so much CSS that build tools and even the browser itself will comfortably tolerate.
Today I’m super excited to share a new project we’ve been working on that makes this constraint a thing of the past: a just-in-time compiler for Tailwind CSS.
“Hi Julian. I see you have your computer linked to the telephone line. Can you tell us how you did that?”
Go Time’s Mat Ryer breaks out the acoustic for all the Generics haters out there:
A musical message for #golang people thinking of leaving because the Go Generics proposal was official accepted. (Spoof of You’ll Be Back from Hamilton.)
If you like this, you’ll be happy to hear we
conned invited Mat on to JS Party this week and threatened him asked him to create some jingles for our regular segments. If you don’t like it, please travel back in time and skip that last sentence.
JS Party panelist Emma Bostian is getting serious about YouTube, it seems. This a great rundown of how she is (and you could be) generating income from her dev skills outside the typical 9-5.
Do you know YAML tricks and gotchas? In this video you will learn the basics of lists and maps as well as topics such as snippet reuse and managing several definitions in the same file 🙇
Congrats to Salman for launching his YouTube channel!
This segment will be included in a podcast near you soon enough, but we thought it’d be fun to share the video as a standalone since we watched the whole thing play out via K9s.
A narrated redesign packed with typography, brand, and color advice
Jared Mauch was tired of waiting for high speed internet access to his very rural house in the outskirts of Ann Arbor, MI so he started a telco to get fiber to his town.
Development was happening in and around Ann Arbor putting new subdivisions nearby. I expected broadband would reach my new home eventually (Cable, DSL, FTTx), but…nothing came. I know…start a telco! – source slides
Jared covers everything in this video – the research, planning, finances, pre-builds, getting customers, internet access, construction, contractors, and running all the fiber.
A fun throwback in honor of Windows 95’s recent 25th anniversary. This ad is pure 90’s and still dope, IMHO.
I wanted to surface this just in case your podcast queue is stacking up and won’t have a chance to listen to our Working in Public episode before September 1st. Hear all about it 👇
Una Kravets does a great job explaining these 1-liners. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with very little modern CSS. See also the demo site of all the layouts.
I thought it’d be cool to get
mix test and
mix format running on pushes to the changelog.com repo, so I gave GitHub Actions the old college try. After (not too much) futzing around on my own, I figured I’d have more success by getting an expert to help out. Good call be me! 😆
This insight by Aaron Schlesinger on the latest Go Time is on point (IMHO), and realizing this relationship between the two social networks might change the way you think about code on GitHub…
