Notes from this week 5

Web starter kits #

I have been looking into various starter projects that allow me to quickly get web projects up that meet different development needs.

Lazy blocks for WordPress #

I have been experimenting with WordPress Gutenberg blocks and found Lazyblocks plugin. It's a nice way to quickly setup custom blocks while focusing more on the front-end code. One example I used it for was to setup a Foundation tabs section in the middle of a page. I plan on learning the proper way to add custom blocks but I found that this plugin was easy to get going in very limited time.

The great hack #

A new Netflix documentary about how Facebook and data were used in the 2016 USA elections.

Classic house tracks #

I enjoy listening to electronic music while working especially progressive house. This Vox mini-documentary explains some of the details of how disco music turned into house and techno.

Coding & cycling music #

This week I've been listening to Power Hour on Spotify for work as well as my morning cycling trips.
