I've tried Typescript a couple of times, and still not managed to "get in to it". I just find it too much overhead to value. That said, I do like code safety, and I like IntelliSense and I really like JSDoc! Turns out, you can use tsc with JSDoc 👍

On a recent project, I’ve been looking at ways to speed up a JS data processing pipeline, with WebAssembly as a possible solution.

Apparently, I'm on a slippery slope when I butter my cake.

Oooh, just tried out Snowpack for the first time. Setup a new project in a single line and HMR is blazing fast! That's a really nice development experience.

Just had the most home-grown soup ever. Leeks, potato, onion, garlic. All from the allotment. Something very satisfying about the time and work spent on a good simple meal.

It's pretty wild, just feeling so tired yet still trying to work. Each problem just takes that bit longer, first to solve but then to double check… because there's no way you're going to trust your first attempt.

The Ip Man film series really lost its way by number 4. Pretty much an anti-US propaganda piece. They didn’t even hold it together with decent fight scenes, which were over the top wire sequences. Might have to rewatch Prodigal Son to get that elegant Wing Chun experience.
