Wow #seller protection seems quite troubling. @replyall did an episode about why Amazon reviews have become less trustworthy (https://t.co/ejpiEQNIEt)
The results of this year’s survey show through amazing periodic table type of charts with conclusions through quadrant charts. Conclusion pages are the best way to quickly get through the survey though it’s certainly worthwhile to savor it by going through all of it.

Google’s Flutter SDK and the Holy Grail of Mobile Cross-platform Development
In software development, there is this holy grail of write once, run everywhere. The goal is to write one piece of code that runs in an optimized way (code/compile/UI efficiency) on different hardware. Recent emphasis on Mobile-first design has shifted this pursuit to cross-platform mobile development.
Flutter is an open-source mobile application development SDK created by Google. It is used to develop applications for Android and iOS, as well as being the primary method of creating applications for Google Fuchsia.
The long and short of it is that this is a cross-platform development environment/language. Its biggest competitor is React Native.
I’ve come across an excellent article by Marco Bellinaso covering his learning and use of Flutter: “Flutter: the good, the bad and the ugly”. This article is great in that it pulls no punches and it provides resources to anyone that’s interested in learning and using Flutter.

🤔Great episode for those of us that are on the verge of completing a #SideProject but just need that extra push (to reduce #scope).

Nice #concept from @_DavidSmith: “If you #code at the limit of your intellect – #debugging is going to be impossible. U have to code at 1/2 your intellect so when u #debug, you can use your full intellect & solve the problem
