Microservices are for humans, not machines
"The microservice architecture is an architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services, which implement business capabilities. The microservice architecture enables the continuous delivery/deployment of large, complex applications. It also enables an organisation to evolve its technology stack."

The Discipline of Content Strategy
It’s time to stop pretending content is somebody else’s problem. If content strategy is all that stands between us and the next fix-it-later copy draft or beautifully polished but meaningless site launch, it’s time to take up the torch, time to make content matter. Halvorson tells how to understand, learn, practice, and plan for content strategy.

Space Station 20th: longest continuous timelapse from space - YouTube
Since the very first module Zarya launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome on 20 November 1998, the International Space Station has delivered a whole new perspective on this planet we call home. Join us as we celebrate 20 years of international collaboration and research for the benefit of Earth with ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst’s longest timelapse yet. In just under 15 minutes, this clip takes you from Tunisia across Beijing and through Australia in two trips around the world. You can follow the Station’s location using the map at the top right-hand-side of the screen alongside annotations on the photos themselves. This timelapse comprises approximately 21 375 images of Earth all captured by Alexander from the International Space Station and shown 12.5 times faster than actual speed. Music is Orbital Horizons, an original composition by Los Angeles-based musician Matt Piper. Participate in further Space Station celebrations via social media using hashtag #SpaceStation20th.

Sounds of Mars: NASA’s InSight Senses Martian Wind - YouTube
Listen to Martian wind blow across NASA’s InSight lander. The spacecraft’s seismometer and air pressure sensor picked up vibrations from 10-15 mph (16-24 kph) winds as they blew across Mars’ Elysium Planitia on Dec. 1, 2018. The seismometer readings are in the range of human hearing, but are nearly all bass and difficult to hear on laptop speakers and mobile devices. We provide the original audio and a version pitched up by two octaves to make them audible on mobile devices. Playback is suggested on a sound system with a subwoofer or through headphones. Readings from the air pressure sensor have been sped up by a factor of 100 times to make them audible. For full-length uncompressed .wav files, visit NASA.gov/sounds For more about the InSight mission, visit mars.nasa.gov/insight . Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/CNES/IPGP/Imperial College/Cornell

Masking vs. Clipping: When to Use Each
"I was recently doing some client work where I used both <clipPath>s and <mask>s in SVG to hide and show content for animation. When I started this project, I thought I knew all of the reasons to use one over the other. But, as tends to happen, working closely with something reveals idiosyncrasies. In this post, we'll go over some of these details so that you can get productive as soon as possible."

We have all experienced situations where a web page has visibly loaded and we try to click around on buttons or any Javascript-powered interactive elements, but nothing responds. This delay is what the FID metric tracks."
