The most overrated quality in a potential cofounder is experience. The most underrated is not flaking.

I just added a component to the Framer X store that wraps 's React Select. It's a beautiful, hackable dropdown menu that can spare you the enduring pain of writing your own.

Why do I blog - no one reads it. Oh yeah.... p.s. If you've ever gotten something from someone's work, a short note like this is VERY appreciated!

If you’re in Sydney and interested in GraphQL backends or headless CMS, you should come to tonight. The team are going to launch something very special 😀

I may be in a bit of a bubble (I run the meetup) but Sydney and AU feel very react-dominated at the moment 🇦🇺 There's some Vue going on, angular you don't hear about much. ...if we're honest, by LOC-in-prod I'm pretty sure jQuery would give a run for its money 😅

the next level of "open up node_modules" is to patch them and keep going. 's patch-package is saving my ass right now so that i dont have to fork a library or PR and wait. absolutely recommend to all JS devs.

if at first you don't succeed, try `rm -rf node_modules && npm install`

Related: I’m really appreciating array destructuring emerging as the way to return multiple variables from a function call. Neatly matches arguments; the function owns the naming of variables coming in, the caller owns the names coming out.

Seriously - one of the most amazing programmers I work with studied philosophy, became a writer, then pivoted to programming. And you know what? He’s an AST wizard and brings a super valuable perspective to DX stuff we do, because of that background.

Guess I don’t talk about it much, but I never went to uni/college either. I’ve programmed some cool shit & now run my own company employing others to do the same. We deliberately hire for a diversity of backgrouds in the team. Some comp sci, others design and one philosopher!

I'd like to say something about "competing" frameworks in JavaScript and the people building the tech vs. the people on twitter using them:

I’m not really complaining. I love OSS and am proud of what I’ve created. And I basically get to empower other people as my day job, which freaking rocks. But sometimes it bloody destroys me.
