Journal Update

The news and measures about the corona virus are giving me anxiety caused nightmares. I feel genuinely scared about what is happening. Worried about my family and my friends and colleagues. Worried that we might not have enough supplies. Worried about how the World As We Knew it is over. Perhaps I've seen too many apocalyptic movies and TV.

I've been away from the office at home for five weeks now. Working from home was okay until my son couldn't go to the kindergarten anymore and then last Friday, my laptop broke. I got the machine replaced. Hopefully I can be somewhat productive again today.

We're together in this until at least April 16th when the schools can reopen. Today is March 17th. A complete lock down of Germany might still happen. For how long is totally unclear? I need to make an inventory of the food and supplies in the house.

Nathan is great and developing. He's also starting to talk much more. And he even formed little sentences. It is however tough keeping him busy without simply turning on the TV. Worried what this is doing to his development?

My Recommended Web Dev Sources

As a web developer, one of my challenges is keeping up-to-date. So I follow a lot of different web development publishing sources. Amongst others, these are the main ones I find myself reading the most articles from:

Frontend Focus

Currently one of the best Front-end development newsletters

@codinghorror WebKit was never a favorite of mine due to slow development and Apple obviously having a bigger incentive pushing native apps. On the other hand, it has never been a better time to start or keep supporting the Mozilla foundation.

The history of ten years of web development would be enough material to fill a book with. It would definitely be a book I’d like to read.

Funny how a simple T-shirt, albeit uniquely designed and in limited supply, actually kick-started me to invest - more - spare time to contribute to the open-source development of the CMS project.

A great article on how Dominic Szablewski programmed and released the "Voidcall" game in under 13KB.

"The amazing challenges of implementing a real-time strategy game in 13kb of JavaScript "
a JavaScript game development competition with a file size limit of 13kb, including code, assets and everything else. My entry was Voidcall, a Real-time Strategy game.
