Well dang, last week was quite busy, mostly occupied supporting an imminent product launch next week on Netlify. Oddly, most of what I came across last week in the in-between was stuff I had missed from late last year. So this week is sort of “in case you missed the stuff I also missed at the end of 2021”, lol. Onward:
Understanding Rendering in the Jamstack (Brian Rinaldi) - This is from December 2021, but I had missed it (maybe you did too!). This is a solid breakdown of mental models of building with the Jamstack (and the word soup / acronym heaven that goes along with it now). “From client-side to server-side rendering, and even distributed persistent rendering - here’s what sets Jamstack apart.”
aspect-ratio, which has been “supported in browsers for going on a year now, […] with Safari finally catching up in September 2021”. This is a crisp summation of where we’ve been / where we are, where handling aspect ratio on the web is concerned.
Not currently looking, but these suggested questions are 💯 to keep in mind for the future.
Give yourself full permission to interview your future managers back. When they ask “Do you have any questions for me,” take the opportunity to expose what your next 1+ years under this person might be like.— Lily Konings (@lilykonings) January 21, 2022
Here are 5 questions I have or wished I’d asked of my future managers:
Agree. I remember back in 2009 when I created a Twitter (as part of a journalism class in college, oddly?!) it was a main topic of discussion whether you have a single consolidated Twitter, or a “professional” and a “personal” one. But yeah this is exactly how I feel about Twitter.
Twitter is two places— Michael Chan (@chantastic) February 10, 2022
1. A place where you broadcast your bullshit
2. The only means of communication you have with industry friends
It’s weird finding a single strategy that makes sense for both places
I have questions.
I hope you’ve had a nice weekend so far!
