The Glimmer Binary Experience | LinkedIn Engineering - I had the privilege of seeing Yehuda Katz, one of the Ember core developers, give a talk about Glimmer and bytecode at this year’s All Things Open conference. They’re doing some pretty serious software engineering in the Ember community right now. This write-up covers a lot of the same ground and is worth a read.
Programming Tools and Practices
Atom 1.23 and Visual Studio Code 1.19 were released this week, making this a big week for Electron based text editors. If you use either of them, you’ll get to enjoy a nice set of performance improvements when you upgrade.
Bear 1.4 - Speaking of software that I love to use getting updates, I’ve been using Bear as my primary notes app for the last year, and it is a delight. Getting autocomplete on tags this week solved it’s last real annoyance for me, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in a simple notes app. It’s more powerful than Apple’s notes or text files, but cleaner and more elegant than Evernote. And even the paid level is very affordable.
