Issue #104
Hey Readers!

There's a lot going on in the world right now as I'm sure you're aware. In the U.S., it's a situation that we haven't really experienced ever before. We've had epidemics and pandemics before, yes, but our society has never been as large and interconnected which makes this current situation a bit unique.

So, everybody stay safe where you are and start a new project, invent something we didn't know we needed, write some dev posts, or just use a bit of this time to build a new skill - programming or otherwise. Even if you learn a small new coding trick - write a post or make a video and submit it via the Article Suggestion Form. I think it would be cool to feature the work of our readers in a new section called - "Quarantine Quarter." 🤪


P.S. The Frank's Picks video will return next issue
