A reminder to any junior devs who follow me: my DMs are open. Feel free to talk to me about what you're working on, what questions you have, or what you're struggling with. I'll make time for you.

Just published "Cloud workstations: the future of remote work." 👉 isaaclyman.com/blog/posts/cl… Though there are downsides and caveats to working on a cloud desktop, I believe the advantages are compelling enough to win over remote workers and companies.

Very odd that when you lazy-load an @angular module it doesn't receive the same instance of your services as the rest of the app. You have to re-do initialization, auth, etc. APP_INITIALIZER hooks don't re-run and there's no module initialization hook. It's like a whole new app

It's actually bad luck to say MacBook inside an office. You have to call it 'The Scottish Laptop'

Fruit flavored candy is a massive prank. The best case scenario is it will taste like the fruit. Like if fruit flavored candy existed and then someone invented real fruit, we’d all be like “wow this is way better”

potentially controversial/bad take: tech employees are the closest paid to the value they're actually generating, and tech salaries should be the rule not the exception.
