Pinned toot

I just created an RSS feed of my /now page! I haven't been very active in my blog, but I've kept updating this, so subscribe if you want see what I'm up to!

If you ever wanted to build a #Solid App you might be interested in participating in #Inrupt's April 2023 #hackathon an even win a prize

Good to say it out loud in case someone needs to hear it. Many OSS devs lost a third or more of their sponsors. Don't doubt yourself. The ongoing crisis and GitHub removing Paypal as a payment option are possible reasons. We appreciate you! Thanks a ton for what you do 💜

Also, be careful if you're using faker-js because it is not tree-shakeable either! I found out about this because using it in one of my tests increased my production bundle to 3MB O.o

none of my libraries were actually tree-shakeable because I wasn't declaring "sideEffect": true in the package.json 😅️

I'm going to and next week in Barcelona, is someone I know going as well?

(Or even if I don't know you but you want to chat! :D)

There is no need to be afraid of creating your own vocabulary for #solid apps. If you do traditional JSON you are actually inventing your own terms all the time without thinking about it. With #RDF you still can use your own terms but you don't have to reinvent the wheel by reusing and others where applicable.


Thanks to everyone who attended my talk yesterday, From Zero to Hero with Solid!

If you missed it or want to watch it again you can get the recording here:

(it should eventually appear on the event page but it's taking some time)

Starting in 2 hours! You can catch the livestream in the link below, or watch the recording later on.

Remember that next week I'll be giving my talk on at FOSDEM! The schedule has changed since I announced it, make sure to be there at the right time if you planned on attending :D. There will also be a recording if you miss it live!

It's here!

After working on it for a long time, I'm finally ready to release my new app: Umai 😋️

Can't wait to see your recipes 👨‍🍳️

I submitted a talk proposal for FOSDEM, and I'm glad to announce that it's been accepted 🥳! FOSDEM will be held the 4th & 5th of February in Brussels.

I hope to see you there :D.





Also, thanks to @moodle for the purchase! I got it using EduCash, a training allowance they give to employees.

After 10+ years of making websites, you'd think I already know CSS. But I just signed up for Josh W. Comeau's course and I'm sure I will learn a lot!

You should check it out, and you can follow my experience taking the course in my website:

I never thought I'd say this, but I just learned about a Mastodon feature reading a Seth Godin blog post. Good times :D.

(I learned about the /explore page, no idea it existed)

I also seems like he's going to do something with Mastodon, which is great.

If you're still worried about scalability, I've heard that scales even better for instances-of-one.

In any case, I hope this was useful to someone, and see you in the fediverse!

The only thing I've had to do on a regular basis is running the following command: `tootctl media remove`. And it's so rarely that I haven't even bothered scheduling it (even renewing SSL certificates is more annoying).

I also migrated servers once, whilst keeping the same domain. And it was also easier than expected:
