Problem Solver. Software Architect. Entrepreneur.
Working at Moodle to empower educators to improve our world.
Making Solid apps on the side (solidproject.org).
(1/3) I'll be completely honest about #LastPass's recent announcement. I started using it 2 years ago, and I was willing to pay for it. However, after using it for a while I saw no reason to upgrade given that the Free plan already covered all my necessities.

One new tip for this year.

Seneca's "On Discursiveness in Reading" is one of my favourite letters of his, and I feel the same way about programming. When I find a technology I like, I'd rather stick with it than learning something new. https://en.m.wikisource.org/wiki/Moral_letters_to_Lucilius/Letter_2
I've recently been extracting some helper methods from different projects into a utils package, and I came up with a Fluent API to combine custom helpers with built-in methods. It was fun to make it fully typed as well :D. https://github.com/noeldemartin/utils#fluent-api

"P.S. We're offsetting by 3x every bit of CO2 this creates." Nice!!
It seems like this starting to become a reality! (maybe it already was when I tooted this and I didn't know 😅 )
And some people has recommended hubs.mozilla.com, but I'm not sure it has the UX I had in mind.
