Can you believe it’s October already? I can’t. So spooky. Onwards!
This was an exciting week of launches!
First of all, this next week is Jamstack Conf, and our promo video went live, and I LOVE it so much. It turned out great, and this week I’m going to the in-person MC spot where we’ll be set up with costumes and some pretty fun jokes (by the way it’s free if you’d like to join us)!
Secondly, we finally launched The Key this week! You might have seen it before when we made it as an April Fools’ Day prank, and now it’s a reality. We sold out of the initial batch in the first few hours, but you can still nab one (or three) for the next batch! It’s been really fun seeing the press about this one (I listed some of the articles in this post), too!
And lastly, I published a guide for getting your first job in tech for GitHub’s README project! You might recognize some of the advice from my longer guide on GitHub. I thought it’d be good to make some of the content a bit more concise, and I’m happy with how it turned out!
Gun.io acts like your personal freelancing and job seeking concierge (for free). They match you with vetted companies, pitch you for projects and set up your interviews, handle your contracts and billing, and get you paid consistently—no reminders or client invoices required. Plus, you get paid the rate you set for yourself, without the usual negotiation dance.

This week’s question:
Given an integer array, find all distinct combinations of a given length x (with repetition allowed).
$ distinctCombos([1,1,2], 2) $ [1, 1], [1, 2], [2, 2] $ distinctCombos([1,2,3,4], 2) $ [1, 1], [1, 2], [1, 3], [1, 4], [2, 2], [2, 3], [2, 4], [3, 3], [3, 4], [4, 4]
This question is brought to you by Jamstack Conf!
Join 20,000 developers at Jamstack Conf this week on Oct 6 & 7th!

That’s all for now, folks! Have a great week. Be safe, make good choices, and compliment your friends!
