Watching my three year old run after a butterfly is very amusing.

Scott Hanselman writes over on his blog that Systems Thinking as important as ever for new coders.
I think his advice is solid for anyone starting out as developers.
As someone who implemented IE6 banners in all products of the company I worked for at the time, A Conspiracy To Kill IE6 was immensely fun to read.
I’ve used SVG a lot over the years. But my use has typically been limited to optimizing files before using it on a page.
Smashing Magazine has published a Practical Guide To SVG And Design Tools.
I found it really informative and expect I’ll be revisiting it often.
I was wearing my Commonwealth of Independent Systems tee today…

Do you want to hear the New John Williams Suite from Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?
Of course you do.
Matthew Phillips writes about How Svelte shifted its narrative.
A very good observation.
Although I often talk about how performant code Svelte produces, the developer happiness from using Svelte is its biggest asset.
If you don’t know Svelte, it is a component framework — like React or Vue. But running at build time instead of at run time.
After several months of being just days away, we are over the moon to announce the stable release of Svelte 3. This is a huge release representing hundreds of hours of work by many people in the Svelte community, including invaluable feedback from beta testers who have helped shape the design every step of the way.
We think you’re going to love it.

So it’s a beautiful day out. Me and the kids are all outside enjoying this nice weather.
Then I see that the Boxboy! + Boxgirl! demo is out!
Switch in the garden it is! ❤️
So today I woke up at the hospital. I was rushed in last night after chest pains.
I feel fine now, but this was not the day I planned.
Liverpool 2 - Chelsea 0!
I’ve watched the goal by Mohamed Salah over and over. Surely a contender for goal of the year. ⚽️
For a while we’ve been working on solving problem A. During user research it became clear that our solution was a good one, but it was not a problem they had.
It improved existing functionality, but they would rather like us to solve problem B. 🤔
User research is important!
A teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode IX has been released.
And it’s great.
Time to bring out some🍿and go frame-by-frame. As you do.
I got back to work fired up with ideas of how we could create better software using semantic html. And we did.
15 years later I’m still passionate about creating great accessible software for the web. But I’m surprised I still have to convince other developers that we have to use semantic html.
In Nothing Fails Like Success Zeldman talks about the complicated relationship between money and tech on the web.
And asks the question if IndieWeb can save us?
I ❤️ the movement, and hope to use Micro.blog for a very long time.
And hopefully piece by piece we can create the parts needed to never hear words like “let’s just put up a Facebook page” again.
Liverpool - Porto 2:0.
Second half begins. ⚽️
