Yee-haw, it’s Friday - thanks for the birthday wishes in the last thread, I really appreciate ya! Anyway, would you believe that I have some links to share:
- On the Fediverse front: we gathered together the apps and playlists the community is creating on it for the Glitch blog. Relatedly, we also announced Mastodon joining our Fast Forward program - my favorite part of this post are the Discord conversations and charts that we got from the Mastodon team to get insight into how they were handling their recent DDOS attack!
- I enjoy everything @andypiper writes and shares, and this post thinking about dev rel’s post-twitter future from the lens of someone with so much experience is really thoughtful and I’m grateful to them for publishing it.
- Do you own a Stadia controller? Neither do I… but they’re pretty inexpensive and may be worth getting your hands on one since they’ve made it possible to to use it as a standard gamepad. This tutorial from @tomayac on the Chrome Developer blog shows how to talk to the controller using the experimental WebHID api - it includes this handy gamepad tester demo on Glitch to see it in action.
By the way, we won an award! Here’s a blurry photo of @keithk, drenched in purple screen lighting as nature intended, showing the award off for the camera:
Awards, links, apps, forum posts - we couldn’t do it without y’all! Now, what links do you have to share? What are you working on this week? Sound off in the thread
