Like the whole internet and their grandma, I started writing a “2020: Year in review” article.
For those living under a rock, or who do not have a grandma, a “Year in review” article is an overview of your business, professional, personal, and family accomplishments in the last year. “Enlightened” ones tend to sprinkle it with few failures just to appear modest and down to earth :-)
After finishing a draft of all major sections and subsections my list of accomplishments was turning into a list of failures. Everywhere I just saw things I failed to do. Projects I failed…
Woohoo, we’re already at lucky number 13! Did you know that number 13 is considered lucky to the Chinese?
Marcel Pociot was productive in the last couple of months and created Expose, free open-source tunneling service (ngrok alternative) written in pure PHP. It allows you to share your local websites with others via the internet.
He also created Laravel Playground — a free-to-use service that allows you to try out Laravel code (and all its features) directly in your browser.

Hey! Another month has almost passed and that means that it is time for me to get motivated, write an intro, and carefully select interesting links from collected ones with a short text written for each of them.
I hope you’ll enjoy the selection.
This month there may be more React links than usual due to me building a new web app using React hooks and learning the intricacies of hooks to stop DDoSing my app 😜
As there are 12+ interesting articles and you don’t have the time to read all of them, do not skip over the last one — “68 Bits of Unsolicited Advice”. There are also few short but appetizing reads.

COVID-19 has forced me to spend way too much time indoors so I’ve been keeping myself busy with reading, I just finished reading Radical Candor by Kim Scott and I want to recommend this to everyone who is a boss or has a boss. …
A curated list of interesting articles, tweets, books, and podcasts mainly (but not exclusively) about web development.
I bet you thought I won’t be able to deliver interesting reads for two months in a row? Well, aren’t you a pessimist :) To be honest, I’m surprised myself that I did.
It seems that the trick of spending 5 minutes on it every day is working for me. So if you are having trouble with grit, here is what you need to do — dedicate 5 mins each day for the task that you are having a problem with and add…
Good news, by popular demand (wink wink Zvonko) I’m continuing with Interesting reads. I know what you’re thinking — your year could not have started with better news than this :D
Inspired by Zoran Jambor and his latest issue of Interesting Bits of compounding effect of spending 5 minutes of your time daily on something and his amazing perseverance with his CSS Weekly newsletter (394 issues almost without skipping a week).
Powered by a simple trick of adding 5 minutes recurring event each working day to my calendar :)
Now that I (and Zoran mostly) have properly inspired you, let…
Long time no see! The previous volume of Interesting reads was last May. Not that there wasn’t anything interesting to read in the period — I just got lazy and my procrastination got the better of me. It is hard to stick to schedule, even loose one as mine was :)

Anyhow, in this volume, there are a couple…
