I always talk about Ramen, but up until recently I hadn't cooked it myself. Some months ago, I finally did it and I'm quite happy with the results :D.

Of course, I've still got a lot to improve, but it came out pretty decent πŸ™ˆ.


@VincentTunru @marleenstikker Nice write-up :D. I've actually met part of the ActivityPod's team: @srosset and @laurin. And I really like the idea of mixing both Solid and ActivityPub. I'm sure something great will come out of all this work :).

The only comment I have about the article, though, is that Umai is not a "demo" app! Or at least that's not my intention πŸ˜‚. But I see how someone could get that impression in it's current form. So no problem with the misunderstanding :).

Here's the recording of my second talk at the Symposium.

I found about CRDTs and local-first some years ago, and they fit perfectly with the way I wanted to build apps. In this presentation, I share how I applied them to Solid. Check it out!


In case you missed last week's Symposium, here's my first talk!

It is about Developer Experience, a topic dear to my heart. I talk about the tools I've created and what's important for Solid DX overall. Let me know what you think!


This slide from the SolidLab session says a lot about the Solid Ecosystem and what I struggle with the most as an app developer

"use your privilege for common good" Love this closing line from @csarven's presentation! It's great to finally see him live :)

If you're interested in the full recount of my experience going through the course, you can read it in my website: noeldemartin.com/tasks/learnin

I finally completed Josh W Comeau's course, and I have to say it's the most comprehensive course I've ever seen. It should be required material for anyone working with CSS (I'm not kidding).

And to top it off, it's super fun!

100% recommend: css-for-js.dev/

Reminder that next month I'll be attending the 2nd in Belgium. And I can now confirm that I'll be giving not one, but two talks! One about Developer Experience, and another one about Local-first CRDTs.

The registrations are open, I'm looking forward to meet you there :).


The benefits of interop are greater than the convenience of not caring about standard formats.

I just posted an update about the work I'm doing on my framework to make Solid Apps, Aerogel.

I recently started rebuilding my first Solid App, and I tell you how that's going and my typical development workflow. check it out!


In a couple of months, I'll be attending the 2nd Solid Symposium in Leuven, Belgium. I missed it last year, but I'm looking forward to attending this one! I'll also participate in a session on CRDTs (and maybe one on DX), it should be fun :D.


@rosano I think it depends a lot on how close someone is to having enough financial security, but I'm pretty sure everyone would choose more meaning. The thing, though, is that not everyone's idea of "meaning" is the same.

Some people also don't seem to ever reach financial security because they increase their expenditure with more income.

After years of fruitless pursuit, I finally got my hands on some stickers at !! Thanks to the @NGIZero folks :D.

If we ever meet and you want one, let me know; I'll be glad to share them :).

I realize I didn't post it before; here you can find some of the talks I'll be attending and what else I'll be doing at noeldemartin.com/tasks/attendi

@rosano I guess I'd say this one, which isn't linked from anywhere right now but existed on the first version of the site :) noeldemartin.com/experiments

On the topic of unbroken links, I love this page, maybe you haven't seen it: w3.org/Provider/Style/URI

What does it mean to own your data? Can you have it and still not have it?
