I've tinkered with a ton of programming tools this year, but none of them has captured my heart like GitHub Actions . It's a continuous integration tool, yes, but it's also a general purpose code execution platform, and it's built into the website that I use to manage my projects every day.

ConvertKit's approach to sequences, broadcasts, and user segments has really spoken to the way that I envision a healthy list for Bytesized Code, and it's been awesome to start to dig into actually building that vision out.
Quick note to accompany the newsletter going out tomorrow morning – I'm delaying Byteconf Season Two until the beginning of 2020.
I announced that planning for the new version of Byteconf had begun at the beginning of August, but as the first week of September rolls by, I'm finding that it's taking a little bit longer for me than I thought it would to get back into the planning of recurring meetups, including all the low-level
