This gives me warm fuzzies "users downloaded it 330,000 times, making it the most popular package in the entire Atom ecosystem. Now autocomplete-plus will replace the original autocomplete package."
At GitHub, we’re building the text editor we’ve always wanted: hackable to the core, but approachable on the first day without ever touching a config file. We can’t wait to see what you build with it.

Linking your CI server to a nerf gun that will aim and shoot in the direction of the person who breaks the build, obviously.

I played a lot of single player too, but some of my fondest memories was stalking orcs in Ashenvale forest. Back when horde was everywhere.

That's certainly a lot of words for "#Facebook is warming webviews on your news feed".

Facebook today is rolling out "instant articles," quick-loading stories from publishers including The New York Times and BuzzFeed that load on Facebook’s flagship app 10 times faster than before....

in my latest post I'll look at the solution for a feature I've been wanting to do for a while, in the relatively constrained static site generating #GitHub Pages. #javascript   #a11y   #html5  
I finally got around to addressing issue number 240; allow multiple programming languages to display on a single post.

Introduction
I make software for a living and I love it. Some topics I'm particularly interested in are making delightful user experiences, achieving great performance and creating a semantic and accessible web. I speak a little Japanese, a little Korean and a bunch of programming languages.

I work at Amazon on the Silk Browser and write about my craft on my personal blog (www.growingwiththeweb.com)
