Something that interested me this week
This week at work, we released a Request for Comments for Distributed Persistent Rendering! It’s a lot of fancy words for… incremental building for all web frameworks! If you’d like to play with it yourself, we released a (very) early version of this called On Demand Builders. It’s been a big team effort and I’m so excited to hear any and all thoughts you have on it!
Outside of work… I’m back on the Stardew Valley bandwagon. I have to speed up working on this newsletter so I can harvest my cabbages!
This week’s sponsor is Courier, the fastest way to build notifications for your app!
Your application speaks to your users with notifications, but what do you do when your users don’t all want the same notifications over the same channels? Building the event triggers is annoying enough, but when you have to build templates for multiple channels, track deliverability and performance, and manage granular user preferences, you end up with overwhelming complexity that distracts your team from your core product.
That’s why Courier built it’s API and Notification System as a service. Courier is a place to design, manage, and orchestrate all of your application’s notifications using a simple API. We’ve built a powerful drag-and-drop editor to help you build and send templates over any channel while giving your users full control over their own preferences.
Plug in providers like Twilio, Sendgrid, Mailgun, and Firebase to send Email, SMS, Push, In-App, or even direct messages - Slack / Facebook / Discord / MSTeams / WhatsApp.
