Young Reacts #53

I am doing a five-minute presentation for my grand-grand boss’s org, which is about 100 people. I wasn’t going to wing it, but I also didn’t make a big deal out of the occasion because five minutes is such a short time. So I felt a little out of place when my co-presenters scheduled multiple meetings to coordinate and prepare. I wonder how I got a different assumption/attitude 🤔

Unified Architecture – A Simpler Way to Build Full-Stack Apps

This article reminded me of how I noticed and chose to ignore the lack of keyboard interactions just the other day. I feel ashamed now 😳
