By Nat Welch

I’m currently sitting on a chair up in rainy Northern California. Listening to music, drinking coffee and browsing the internet. Political news has continued to be incredibly depressing, so let’s focus on the #happy.

Yesterday I started working through React for Beginners. Such a great course. Really nice speed.

Gomix looks awesome. Been playing around with it lately, and it’s a really neat way to code and deploy things.

I’m going to start offering office hours, somewhat inspired by Out of Office Hours and Draft.

I’ve been skimming The SIDtoday Files, which are interesting and scary. You can learn more about this at The Intercept.

You’ll probably see a post soon enough with all of my favorite best of lists…

@yuffster built Dialog Tree. It’s amazing. It takes time, but it’s some of the most fun I’ve had playing with words in a long time.

Dream team

Have a great week!
