Do you want to know what developing without unit tests is like?
Open your shoelaces, close your eyes and run as fast as you can...🏃

@devinprater 😄 ❤️
There is also a screenshot of a terminal window in the toot. The text in the terminal says:
"test result: ok. 190 passed; 0 failed; 0 ignored; 0 measured; 0 filtered out".

Sorry for not including the alt text on the image. Back then, I wasn't that familiar with Mastodon.😇

I love Ashley! A very inspiring and humble person.❤️ 🤗

Also the podcast is really well made, giving context (no pun intended😜) to what is being said by showing certain websites, articles and blog posts about that topic.

Rust Forum Post | Thank you for the teaching on how to write better software - Jorge Leitao

"What I have been learning [...] was not Rust in particular, but how to write sound software in general, and that in my opinion is the largest asset that the rust community tough me[...]. This ability to identify unsound code transcends Rust's language, and in my opinion is heavily under-represented in most cost-benefit analysis over learning Rust or not."

Rust challenge 🦀 

Ok, fellow Rustaceans, here is a little challenge for you.🤓 Make the following program compile:

The solution is beneath this toot.

Please don't look at it, before you haven't put some amount of thinking into a potential solution.
A toot to your solution here in the thread is very much appreciated (with link to playground, if possible, so that others don't immediately see the code in the toot).🤗

“Ultimately, we are deluding ourselves if we think that the products that we design are the ‘things’ that we sell, rather than the individual, social and cultural experience that they engender, and the value and impact that they have. Design that ignores this is not worthy of the name.” - Bill Buxton

This looks awesome!
It uses and they plan to use for custom extensions. What a technology stack!🚀

It is still very(!) early, but it looks so promising.🤗

Hm...which approach should I ch...RUST!

"Diffusion of innovations is a theory that seeks to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread.":

I think is maybe at the end of the "Early adopters" stage:

Trust me: Rust will blow up within the next two years! 🎉 🚀

If you are a Web Developer or are interested in it, Codrops is just an *amazing* resource!😍 🤗

They have a news section (🐰 🕳️ ) and a lot of cool showcases of animations. ✨
