Set up a minimal server on a Raspberry Pi

Monday 18th of January 2021 08:02:00 AM

Recently, the microSD (secure digital) card in my Raspberry Pi stopped working.

4 big lessons from my internship with open source

Sunday 17th of January 2021 08:00:00 AM

If you happened to have a time machine and chose to shoot yourself back a year to ask me what I thought about making open source contributions (of all the things you could've done), you may have guessed that I would just shrug and say something along the lines of, "I don't know, isn't that reserved for all the hard-core devs with the insane GitHub stats and decked-out macros and stuff?
