Making Solid apps on the side — solidproject.org.
One of the reasons why I am working with Solid is that it embraces interoperability as one of its core values. But there is a lot of nuance about what that looks like in practice. In this blog post, I share my thoughts on the topic. https://noeldemartin.com/blog/interoperable-serendipity
I've just released an alpha version of an app I'm working on. It's not production-ready, but I'd appreciate it if you give me some feedback: https://forum.solidproject.org/t/request-for-comments-crdtish-approach-to-solid/4211/14
Today makes 10 years since I started my journey as a developer! Here's what it's been like and what I've learned. https://noeldemartin.com/blog/10-years-as-a-software-developer
Laravel turned 10 years old today!
I can honestly say that Laravel is the single piece of software that has inspired me the most in my programming career. I can't imagine my life as a developer without Laravel, thank you Taylor and the rest of the awesome Laravel community. Here's to another 10 years 🍻.
RIP Kentaro Miura.
Even though he left us too soon, the Golden Age arc will always be one my favorite in manga. We won't get the redemption, but in a way it's fitting.

Thanks to @aral for the heads-up :).

JotterPad, a perfectly good app I've been using for years (and paid for) recently switched to a subscription model.
Did I want any new features? No.
Can I continue using the version I purchased, without getting any new updates? No.
The software industry is broken.
I'm really happy to be sponsoring Anthony Fu, he's done a lot of excellent work in many areas. And I didn't even know he wasn't doing it full-time until now. If you didn't know him, check him out: https://antfu.me
