👣 Carbon footprint, Laravel and Technical CTOs
I'm back from React India conf—OMG it was the best time I've had in so, so long. If you missed the talks and wanna catch up, you can watch the VOD on YouTube. There were a bunch of great talks, and my personal favourites were: Supercharging your dev experience with Turborepo and Code crimes for good component APIs.
I also got to meet so many people—it was great to finally put faces to the online avatars I've interacted with before! 😄
