๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Hola! Welcome to the #5 edition of Nibble.

News ๐Ÿ—ž๏ธ

Wild World & Web ๐Ÿซ 

  • ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ Gravity may have shaken space-time so hard that it spontaneously created radiation (light). [Article] (every day we get closer to the secret sauce of this universe and farther away from God)

  • Floor 796, is an ever-expanding animation scene showing the life of the 796th floor of the huge space station! The goal of the project is to create as huge an animation as possible, with many references to movies, games, anime, and memes. (I found Dr. Hugh from House treating the back of Kakashi Sensei from Naruto ๐Ÿคฏ)

Catch up ๐Ÿค“

  • You can now A/B test your YouTube Video Thumbnails [Tool Link]

  • ๐Ÿ“… YC Summer Conf 2023, (June 17) If you are a student in the Bay area this summer, apply for this and meet the folks from YC (Prez & CEO, founders, and more)

  • Bard now helps you code (another bot joins the party to help humans write more bots, it ain't as good as almighty Co-pilot, but they are catching up!)

  • NextJS revamped its landing page, adding two Rust Logos to ensure people understand the "blazingly fast" thing.

  • Will coding jobs exist in the future?
    Well, Matt Welsh says "no more than 3 years", it'll change as we know it and Co-pilot might soon take the main seat.

  • ๐Ÿ‘€ Code Reviews are hard, but the best way to learn uncharted code, apart from breaking it. Kamran (the person behind Developer Roadmaps) released a quick new guide on how to Review Code

  • ๐ŸŽ“ OG AI Instructor Andrew Ng releases the "Prompt Engineering for Developer" course.

TILs ๐Ÿคฏ

  • Egypt is in North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia [Article].
    Not every place gets the privilege to be part of three landmass regions. (those crazy aliens didn't make the Pyramids at those co-ordinates, for no reason)

  • <StrictMode> renders App twice in only develop mode [SO Link] (for ~15 mins, it was very confusing, I spun up a fresh CodeSandbox to check and found this out.)

New in town ๐Ÿ‘€

  • Supaglue - The Open Source Unified API for CRM integrations

  • AI Marketplace - A platform where you can create prompts and earn commissions.

  • Lamini - Fine-tuning is stale, make your LLM instead.

Recommendations ๐Ÿ’ซ

  • Map of Reddit - if you ever found it difficult to explore Reddit (any human should) this tool gives you beautiful

  • Jellylade - An app that lets you turn your screenshots into beautiful posts with device frames

  • Programmable Search Engine - This tool by Google provides you the ability to add top-level filters and then use an API to make custom searches, which are most relevant to you or your end user.

Cool OSS Projects ๐ŸคŒ๐Ÿป

  • Track Anything - It's more or less now a ritual to talk about SAM (sometimes Altman, sometimes the model by Meta) in every edition. This cool project lets you track and segment objects in a video, it uses SAM (the model) and XMem

  • art-of-command-line - A one-page README to master CLI commands. (but yeah who needs it after Copilot CLI? Well, trust me, I have been using it for 2 months now, and it is better if you learn these basics)

  • cobe - 5kb WebGL Globe Lib, which improves perf by >60%. (How it was made?) (optimizations are hard, and UI optimizations are harder, as it involves engines and renderers beyond your scope of tasks, so when you hear WebGL & optimizations in the same line, you gotta respect that.)

Meme of the week

Ponder worthy words

"When gives you lemonades, make lemon. Life will be like 'Whatttt?' "
