[Beginner Tip] When googling something if you are referring to the same thing more than twice just store the snippet/answer in your project directory

I have been googling things more than once and it is very frustrating. Because it is a markdown file and I have what I googled as the heading with the answer link embedded. I have the code snippets...

Neumorphism and accessibility

So I've read about 10 articles about this, and I've built a small little React app using neumorphic principles. I actually love this style. I love how gauche and up its own ass it is. I love how concretely different from MD it is. I love, love, LOVE how you can make the UI look like an actual material. The strongest argument against this style seems...

Simple things become complex once you begin recording yourself doing them

I recently began filming educational videos for programming not only to continue honing my own skills, but to also share my knowledge and engage with the programming community. I quickly realized that something that can seem so easy in your head can become complex as soon as you start teaching it. I’m excited for the challenge and hope that this will...
