So, writing a RESTful API in (RUSTful? πŸ€” ) has been the thing that made me actually like making APIs. It also seems to perform about 4x faster than if I were to have written it in Java or NodeJS.

Just wrote a URL encoding/decoding library in for a thing I'm working on. I guess this means I have done professional Rust development now. Coolest part is how, almost accidentally, because of rustdoc it has accurate and really good documentation.

Ohh, I totally missed this bundle! There's now a Web design & development ebook bundle out on Humble Bundle, from O'Reilly

You could buy it via my affiliate link, and even choose how much of the money goes up me, and how much good to charity etc.!

Remember that a boost is just as helpful as a buy! πŸ’ž

I just want to give an unprompted shoutout to @tindall because, every time I wonder how something works in Rust while I’m learning it, I pop over to their GitHub and can typically find an example of it at work. You da πŸ’£

XVFB (the X Virtual Frame Buffer) is a pretty cool technology. I can now run my tests for libui-rs in Travis, despite not having a display device actually attached!

Wholesomeness break: my old cat never really liked being held, and loathed having his paws held, but because he was a Very Good Boy he would just sigh dramatically and try to ooze away rather than fight it.

One time I was having a breakdown about how hard my uni work was and he hopped into my arms, shoved both paws in my hand and purred hard enough to vibrate my bones until I stopped crying because he knew I liked holding him even if he found it unappealing.

I feel like relying on package management systems for dependencies can make me more productive but it rarely makes me better at my job.

Like, half my brain is saying "don't reinvent the wheel" and the other half is saying "how do you know you can't make a better wheel?"
