✨ New releases everywhere!
Doing my best impression of MKBHD So I've been living in the mountains for almost 10 days now, and I'm all settled in! With this move, I realized that apparently all I need in life is good internet (opens in a new tab) (to video call my girlfriend, duh). I'm just trolling, but I really can't find things to complain about — I mean look at the view from my evening jog (opens in a new tab)!
I took the entire last week of from work thinking I'd need that time to help get settled in, and I'm back on my setup. I found out something: it gets difficult to type in really cold weather. 😅 Also, congratulations to everyone who completed Hacktoberfest this year! 🥳
Photoshop's journey to the web — web.dev (opens in a new tab) The idea of running software as complex as Photoshop directly in the browser would have been hard to imagine just a few years ago. However, by using various new standardized web technologies, Adobe has now brought a public beta of Photoshop to the web.
Next.js 12 — Next.js Blog (opens in a new tab) Next.js Conf happened and like always, there's a bunch of really cools stuff! Middleware support, Rust compiler and performance and quality-of-life improvements all around!

That's all for now, have a great week! I would always link to COVID19India.org (opens in a new tab) here, but they announced that they were sunsetting the project (opens in a new tab). It feels right, with things slowly but surely getting back to normal — shoutout to everyone who worked on it. If you read this far, thank you! You're a gem and I appreciate you.
Stay kind 💜
