Welcome to Week 49!

Hello and welcome to another Lean Code Weekly! This issue features a few things I found very interesting and even thought-provoking:

  1. Deep dive in CORS: History, how it works, and best practices 🕸 - I usually run into Cross-Origin-Resource-Sharing issues when trying to test local development (without a server). This post is a good overview about why it exists, and has examples about how to interact with it.
  2. The little engine that could: Reality Engine! 🚂 - This post talks about various aspects of C99/C11 (not C++) and Clang, including extensions like Apple Blocks. It’s interesting to look at modern language features like lambdas in C.
  3. Why the Canadian Tech Scene Doesn’t Work 💸 - This is a thought-provoking post. It takes a hard stance on the Canadian Tech Scene, but also goes into how making and working towards clear milestones can limit your thinking and potential. I found it counter-intuitive at first but it’s been on my mind a lot lately.
  4. MoveMind Podcast + Slacklining ➿ - I have to admit, when I would see people Slacklining in the park (I didn’t know it was called that) I would snap judgements like it was purely recreational (to put it nicely). This clip of the MoveMind podcast has a discussion about how it is a tool for mindfulness, which I was not expecting at all. After listening it makes complete sense and I’m glad to have my perspective changed on the subject.
  5. Walking with Punches by Trevor Wittman 🥊 - While a lot of boxing training has stationary shadow boxing or bag work, it’s important to also know how to move around. This video talks about the very basics of moving forwards with your punches.

Questions or comments? Suggestions? Let me know! Thanks for reading and see you next week!
