Very glad to be in your inbox today! I hope your week was a good one, and that you’re safe, happy, and healthy. Let’s check out what’s new around the internet!
It was a heavy speaking week for me this week! I gave a talk on the Astro framework (which will go public soon), gave a closing keynote at Developer Day, and MCed + did a fireside chat at Architecting with Next.js!
I also launched a project I’ve been working on for a while, a free email course for building mechanical keyboards! I’m so excited to get this out in the world. It’s still in progress, but you can sign up for the course now (and I’m hoping it’ll be the first of many mechanical keyboard education pieces).
Mux is the API to video that changes that. Instead of spending your time learning an entirely new vocabulary, you can just think about Video and how you want to use it. What Stripe did for payments and Twilio did for telephony, Mux does for video.
Take any video file or live stream and make it play beautifully at scale on any device, powered by magical-feeling features like automatic thumbnails, animated gifs, and data-driven encoding decisions. Spend your time building the experience and application that people want, not drudging through ffmpeg documentation.
This week’s question:
Write a function to find the longest common prefix string in an array of strings.
$ longestPrefix(["cranberry","crawfish","crap"]) $ "cra" $ longestPrefix(["parrot", "poodle", "fish"]) $ ""
