Last week, I visited a coworking space for the first time ever. But it wasn’t your ordinary coworking space filled with people drinking too much coffee and typing on their shiny new MacBooks. On the contrary, the coworking space I visited was completely empty. Nevertheless, this was a valuable experience.


While looking for my first ever laptop, I stumbled upon what appears to be the laptop with the best value for your money. That’s right: You get an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U (6 x 2.1–4.0 GHz) and 16 GB (3200 MHz) DDR4 RAM for just €540! On top of that…


Another day, another time to use ssh. Wanting to connect to your server, you begin typing ssh user@- and darn - what was the server's IP address again? You frantically search your shell's history, but to no avail. You just cleared it yesterday.

Because Python enforces…


Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) are great. They are fast, infinitely resizable, supported by all major browsers and can be freely used by anyone. In short, they are the go-to image format for the web.

Recently, while developing my new website Tailwindize, I obviously opted for using SVGs. Tailwindize displays dynamically…


The CSS framework Tailwind CSS and it’s utility-first approach has completely changed the way I approach designing websites with CSS. Instead of creating custom CSS classes like “button” or “header” you use utility classes like “p-5” to add a padding to an element.

During my journey with Tailwind CSS, I…


As the highest-grossing franchise to date, everyone knows about Pokémon. As such, there is a great deal of merchandise available. This of course also includes trading cards, which have immensely risen in popularity throughout recent years and 2020 in particular. For some (including myself) it has become an investment even.
