Building our FE app at work takes upwards of 20 minutes... Is this normal for a modern React app?

My collection of old DEC tradeshow buttons is growing!!

Apple's restrictions on running binaries downloaded from the Web really emphasized to me how important it is to have open and available sources. We should always try to ship code that can be built by users from source.

Ok let's see if this is the tool I needed to avoid doing all this manual OpenAPI YAML wrangling...

Ok but what is people's aversion to trying new apps/platforms? Even my tech minded friends will balk at the thought of installing an app that's CLEARLY better than what they're using now. Porque??¿¿

Oh lookie! I might follow along with this, but write it in Go. I wanna use this as a chance to brush up on my Go skills, since it looks like I'll be using it at work quite a bit. Thankfully Go has a nice API for tty things.
