This one gets into the details of front-end web interfaces, so it's too technical for most but represents a fun read for those of us who design them. Two really big takeaways: first, a reference to and discussion of Hyperscript, "a newer language for handling common scripting needs on the JavaScript front end." And second, HTMX, "the HTML extension syntax that replaces JavaScript with simple markup." There's also an interesting discussion of REST, which originally meant 'REpresentational State Transfer' but now means something like "JSON APIs over HTTP". All of these address functionality I work with on a regular basis, so it's super-interesting to me - but daunting, because I'm just getting caught up on modern Javascript.
