Here are 3 links I think are worth your time this week,
The architecture of declarative configuration management (7 min read): https://blog.nelhage.com/post/declarative-configuration-management/
[VIDEO] The economics of open source - JSConf EU 2019 (37 min watch): https://2019.jsconf.eu/c-j-silverio/the-economics-of-open-source.html
Tweet of the week is @SaraSoueidan dropping a11y knowledge.
#TIL that a horizontal rule (
<hr>) is announced by screen readers (announced “horizontal splitter” in VoiceOver), so unless it is a semantic thematic break between paragraphs of content (i.e. not just visual decoration), u’ll want to hide it using
aria-hidden = "true"#a11y

The book recommendation this week is Alibaba’s World - How One Remarkable Chinese Company Is Changing the Face of Global Business by Porter Erisman. It’s an interesting look at Alibaba’s beginnings and how it came to prominence in China & the world. Not sure I remember why but it feels like 4/5 ⭐️book (or so my spreadsheet says).
