A decade of major cache incidents at Twitter

The First Bite on etcd Code

Implementing A Svelte Store In Rust

Issue #168



This weekend I decided that writing the web dev course is not my thing. Someone I respect asked me what problems I want to deal with in the future, and honestly, the problems associated with teaching don't really interest me. I'll focus on doing what I enjoy, like writing code and learning new tools/languages. Plus I have a ton of projects associated with the newsletter I'd like to realize, one of which would be a search engine page on the website that uses all of the articles I've curated as the sources. Could be pretty cool! Anyway, here's the issue.
PS. *in accent you associate with hawkers* My friend, if you or anyone you know want to sponsor an issue or six of the newsletter, let me know. I make very good deal!
