I hope you had a good week! I had a very productive one, and I’m excited to keep the ball rolling this next week. Onwards!

Write libraries, not frameworks
Shifty: A Teeny Tiny Tweening Engine
This past week I live-streamed with my coworker Jason! He has a weekly streaming show called Learn with Jason and we built a real-time Twitch game! We live-coded a CSS-only version of him, and hooked it up to chat commands on his show to make his beard grow and shrink based on what the chat wants! It was a blast, check it out if you have time!
This week’s sponsor is Datadog!
Proactively monitor site availability and uptime with Datadog. Set up automated, self-maintaining browser tests to get end-to-end visibility across complex user journeys. Create tests in minutes using Datadog’s code-free, GUI-based Web Recorder. Plus, browser tests use machine learning to detect changes in your application and automatically update your tests accordingly, so you can stay focused on building features, not fixing brittle tests.
Start monitoring with Datadog today!
Last week, I had you check if two numbers are in golden ratio with each other. Great job Andrii, Sameer, Matt, Ten, Jasper, Dominik, Will, Jesse, Dan, Alex, Dimitris, Kyle, and Linda!
This week’s question:
Design a simplified version of Twitter, where users can post tweets, follow/unfollow others, and is able to see the 10 most recent tweets in the user’s news feed.
Some useful functions to include would be getNewsFeed(userid), postTweet(userid, tweet), follow(follower, followee), and unfollow(follower, followee).

Not to brag, but I have sychic powers.
For example, right now you’re thinking, “It’s spelled psychic, she made a typo!”
That’s all for now, folks! Have a great week. Be safe, make good choices, and call someone this week.
