Hello my friends!
I hope you had a good week. I myself am finally getting into the swing of things at Netlify (week 2!), got some coding in, and did a bunch of spring cleaning. Anyway, let’s boogie.

How Open Source Changed My Life with Max Stoiber
One of the projects I worked on this week was a Next.js + Markdown + Netlify blog starter project! One of my goals at my job at the company is to improve the developer experience for people who want to use Next on Netlify, and I thought a fun way to start would be to build a project that people can fork and experiment with on their own. I wrote a tutorial about this project too, which should be live sometime this next week on the Netlify blog! One of the other fun things my team does is occasionally write tweets for the Netlify Twitter account. I maaaaay have gotten a little carried away when it was my turn…
Also this week, I was on a fun “developer game show” called Bubblesort on the Twilio Twitch channel! It was SUCH a fun time with some other cool devs joining in. I got to demo my blog project I built, and ended up winning $500 towards Off Their Plate!

This week’s question:
Given an array of words, return the words that can be typed using letters of only one row on a keyboard.
Extra credit: Include the option for a user to pick the type of keyboard they are using (ANSI, ISO, etc)!
$ oneRow([‘candy’, ‘doodle’, ‘pop’, ‘shield’, ‘lag’, ‘typewriter’])
$ [‘pop’, ‘lag’, ‘typewriter’]

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