Bookmarked: 'Was it easier to build websites a decade ago? | Go Make Things'

This week, Tim McNamara tweeted: Why is it harder to make a website in 2021 than it was in 1996? I mean, writing your own HTML in Notepad and uploading it via FTP was a chore. But it was understandable and easy. If you want to create a fanpage of some obscure topic, everything is just … too much. So instead, people will create an Instagram/TikTok/Facebook/etc and start posting there.

Super agree. Modern web development is built to help companies build large applications. You don't have to use those same tools for personal or smaller sites.

The platform has gotten better over the years and tooling use gotten more complex. That's why use the platform is the approach I prefer.

Bookmarked: Getting Started with PWAs [Workshop]

In this workshop, Aaron Gustafson will help you get your web projects super-charged as Progressive Web Apps (PWAs). The workshop will start off with an explanation of what PWAs are (and what they’re not), the use cases for and benefits of building them, and solid approaches to creating them. Then Aaron will walk you, step-by-step, through the process of turning a website into a PWA. Following along, you’ll author Web App Manifests and Service Workers and gain exposure to some next-gen APIs that tie them more deeply into the underlying operating system. By the end of the workshop, you’ll walk away with a functional PWA you can use right away.
