Advanced Frontend Links of the Week

21st part of the series - advanced links in the area of web frontend development.

Sustainability is an important topic - also for software engineering. As an open-source maintainer I can tell you that burn-out and anxiety are real and a more healthy ecosystem around it is necessary.

This collection contains an outstanding variety of #posts and #articles in the #frontend #webdev space - also with some great write-ups on open-source development. I hope you'll find one or the other article of this issue worth reading!

1. The Dark Side of Open Source by Artem Zakharchenko
Bottom line: Enthusiasm is great but it makes for a poor dinner.

2. The Power of :has() in CSS by Chris DeMars
:has is great, but knowing about forgiving lists as in :is might be even more useful.

In general Phoenix is a great web framework that is truly underestimated.

Or ship never - don't care about bugs.
