It’s friday, how’s it going? It’s raining out by me and thundering a bit too - I’m just glad the sky’s not orange like the Canada wildfires made it last week. Completely unrelated, have you noticed our new homepage featuring our new progressive web app starters? Check those out, but then come back here to click on these links, okay?
- @herbst created this awesome 3D model of the Apple Vision Pro headset. It’s a good thing it comes pre-built, I still have a shoebox of Google Cardboard pieces laying around in my closet lol.
- If you like bricks (yes the kind used to build walls), you’ll love this digital brick wall made of bricks linking to images and videos and webpages about bricks. I want a Glitch app like this for literally every object that exists, pls.
- The Atlassian Developer blog wrote about cross-site scripting (XSS) that includes what it is and a demo to test out ways to prevent it. I guess I won’t waste my time entering a Window alert script into my next Jira ticket.
- @jennwrites published an interview with Summer Anne Burton on our blog, who used Chat-GPT and Glitch to build a mixtape generator app. I talked to the bot and it gave me a great list that included Mariah Carey performing Emotions for MTV Unplugged in 1992!
By the way, Mastodon is a member of our Fast Forward program and we’ve been helping them mitigate a bunch of DDOS attacks recently as they’ve scaled to welcome the influx new members. It’s super interesting stuff for anyone running their own instance, or really any community on the web, and we’re hosting a conversation with the folks involved and we invite you to join us - it’s free to sign up and, yes, there will be a recording if you can’t make it!
Your turn to talk! Let us know what you’re working on and what’s been catching your interests this week!
