Latest TIL

Today I Learned (TIL) are interesting things I've found on the web, ideas, thoughts, and reminders regarding software development. I see it as a second brain for all things related to development and a way for me to practice Learning in public.

This is heavily inspired by Lee Byron's TIL and builds on top of my initial attempt with my Devlog.
