That is so cool! I was just looking at that Verge article a bit ago.

Also congrats on your big talk! It must be a cool feeling to see your own improvement reflected in the size of the audience :)

Yes! I've just had a second child and this is by far the biggest win in the comments thus far! Nice one.

usually, with each successive child, you don't worry as much about each little thing that happens as compared to the previous.

As a father of 4, I concur.

I only have 2, and while I agree you worry less, the change from 1 to 2 felt almost as challenging as from 0 to 1.
But we (and they!!) survived. Good luck!

Thank you! Something to look forward to. It’s been an interesting challenge managing my anxiety around all her silly baby noises and random spots and stuff. But she’s pretty much the best, so it’s worth it. 😁

2,000 downloads for my side project on Google Play Store: Remote for Slides Lite! 🎉

(Implemented using Trusted Web Activity. This is also my first app on the Play Store, hooray!)

* The Remote for Slides Progressive Web App has around ~10,000 monthly users anyway)

My friend and I wrote and published an article we made together this week. There were frustrating times and good times during the process. And it's a bit scary to put yourself out there in the form of some writing and illustrations.

But I'm really happy we did it :)

I finally finished an article that I spent weeks researching. And at work, I managed to get React to render inside an old Angular 1.x page so I can start migrating to newer code.

Sometimes while working I need a pick-me-up.

So I made a micro CLI with oclif to deliver random dad jokes in my terminal.

install using

$ npm -i -g @vip3rousmango/punchline
