Jhey is always dropping great tips centered often around HTML and CSS. This is a great one about the
<picture /> element.
HTML / CSS Tip ✨— jhey 🔨🐻✨ (@jh3yy) September 6, 2022
Use <picture> to display different images based on user preferences 🙏
Pass a media query to the <source> element to do things like "Only show a GIF if the user has no motion preferences" 🤙
Or, how about a different logo for light and dark mode? 😎 pic.twitter.com/Z591kqemLF
Signals come to Preact! This is an exciting change that I’m looking forward to trying out. There’s even a compatibility layer for React! 🔥
Just so it doesn't get buried: we built Signals for Preact, but it works in React too - even the fancy granular text updates! Just import the @preact/signals-react package.https://t.co/WtmFOObSZh pic.twitter.com/jRjZERlUFH— Jason Miller 🦊⚛ (@_developit) September 6, 2022

My old coworker commented on an article on Big O notation with this funny Tweet. It’s from 2019, but pretty hilarious.
Alternative Big O notations:— Pranay Pathole (@PPathole) July 28, 2019
O(1) = O(yeah)
O(log n) = O(nice)
O(nlogn) = O(k-ish)
O(n) = O(ok)
O(n²) = O(my)
O(2ⁿ) = O(no)
O(n^n) = O(fuck)
O(n!) = O(mg!)
