Read articles

Articles that I read lately and felt the need to share/ I agreed with them. The date corresponds to the time I read it, not the time article was published.

✒️ I might or not add comments, I only add them when I have something positive to say, I try to keep them up to 70 words in length.
Article about the forking of redis because it turned propietary software. My opinion: It seems that the project Valkey is more focused on improving the project while redic has a more "free software philosophy" approach. I advice to do your own research before migrating to an alternative if you need to.
An interesting read about the history of the latest front-end frameworks and comparasion between their fundamentals.
A great read about the struggles of React Server Components on the Next.js metaframework.

Bun is a JavaScript (and TypeScript) runtime, bundler, test runner and package manager. A complete alternative to Node, NPM, ESBuild, Webpack and other tools. The amazing performance it has means a lot for me. I am super excited for this release, I want this tool to success and become the new standard. If you are used to Node and npm please check it out, it will blow your mind!
Excellent read that talks about the experiences of JavaScript developers that try to support both ES-modules and CommonJS at the same time. I really hope we can transition to only ES-modules soon.
I love SQLite, I think it is a great database, but I always been told that "you don't go to production" with it. Now seeing it becoming "a great option for the Edge" where people are aiming to deploy right now, it is surreal for me. I am very happy for the team that worked on it, and I hope that people can find more use cases for it!.
Deno is a fantastic tool that gives new breath to the JavaScript ecosystem, I like how you can just download one binary and start using it, no need to install Node.js or any other package manager. However, I still need to learn how to properly setup a full project with just Deno. Right now, I use it for small scripts and tools.

A story about old internet humor, ponies and basketball. As a millennial who also used Flash a lot in the old days, this article hits my nostalgia spot.
All you need to know about creating a blog, from choosing a generator to deploying it.
In this long article, the author goes through xer experience with cryptocurrencies and NFT. I must admit I have been a user of this technology, and it saddens me the amount of scams that are around it, transaction fees, third-parties and required KYC verifications. Overall, I enjoyed this article, I recommend reading it while taking breaks.
Agreed on this, people take for granted liability on Open Source software.
Agreed, the limitations of believing that we only need one identity are harmful.
