🏒 Hockey sticks, Hacker culture and Getting Senpai To notice you
I've been working on making some improvements to this newsletter's archive over at sreetamdas.com/newsletter (opens in a new tab), you can check out my progress (opens in a new tab). Truth be told, I'm very much looking forward to all the new stuff that's going to be introduced in the next major version of Next.js (you can read more about them in the Layouts RFC (opens in a new tab)).
Hope you have a great week ahead! I'm taking the week off to hopefully meet a bunch of people over at React India. 😄

Death by Hockey Sticks (opens in a new tab) "This post is structured as a gauntlet of hockey stick curves that may leave the reader feeling a bit bruised.

A theme emerges: the “bads” go up, and the “goods” go down—and not by coincidence."
