So many holidays this weekend, happy Memorial Day in the US, bank holiday in the UK, and Eid Mubarak to those who celebrate it! I hope you had a good week! I’ve been prepping a bunch for Jamstack Conf this next week, and can’t wait for it to happen. Anyway, let’s boogie.
Announcing React Native for macOS and more
This past week, I did a free webinar called Intro to React Hooks! It was a really fun time answering everyone’s questions and talking about this topic again. I’ll actually be doing a workshop that goes MUCH deeper in to the subject at Jamstack Conf this week, if you would like to attend! Use code wshpvirt50 for 50% off your ticket.

Last week, I had you build a mini version of Twitter. This was a toughie, but y’all did awesome! Great job Dimitris, Willy, Seth, Ten, and Jakob!
This week’s question:
Build a very simple text editor. Your editor should contain an empty string S at first, and have the functions append(t) (add t to the end of S), delete(n) (delete the last n characters of S), undo() (revert S to the state it was before an append or delete), as well as any other functions you might want to include.

Why did King Arthur sign up for so many zoom meetings?
Because he likes to be on cam a lot.
That’s all for now, folks! Have a great week. Be safe, make good choices, and do your spring cleaning, before it’s too late.
