So a funny thing happened. I am starting a new project and wanted to use (Tachyons)[https://tachyons.io/]. So I did training on one website, really fantastic, totally sold me on idea of using it.

So I add it to a project and nothing works, and classes I am writing are like sh*t and completely not working. I was completely confused. And I kept googling for Tachyons and the closest thing I found was some articles on PostCSS and more verbose classes for Tachyons. Tachyons docs are a little crappy and you can’t find anything there, too many things but the one you are looking for is just not there.

But since I got really good impression initially, I kept at it, and layout came to light. The only thing, joy that I felt during the training was not there. I really started questioning my sanity.

Then I see that I made bookmark on the desktop to website I used, below all the windows… And you know what it was?! (TailWindCSS)[https://tailwindcss.com/]!!

No wonder I couldn’t find it. It does have a little weird setup, just to start you need to setup PostCSS etc, but it seems totally worth it and honestly, docs are really good.

So there you have it :)

To be minimalist in your code and tech stack is great skill and something only most senior technologists know how to well.

To err is human; to introduce bugs is to be a developer; and to debug is part of everyday life.

I feel like Facebook is doing absolutely right thing for completely wrong reasons. It will be open-sourced in the end anyway, so I think this is fantastic news.

This is really good article about how futile is to commute today, especially for places that make all collaboration tools. Anyhow, I plan to expand on it in future, but for now, here it is.

I want to explain few random posts on Twitter and LinkedIn, I created new blog, publishing workflow and my “microblog” posts get automagically posted to Twitter and LinkedIn. Homepage is at https://softwaredevelopmentinchicago.com/ and so far I am happy that I can write and post about things I care about and it will be shared everywhere that is relevant.

So, there was some issue with titles being messed up for microposts, and @help was suggesting that killing titles for microposts is best strategy. So hopefully this will work.
