We couldn’t be prouder – the launch festival is over and we had an incredible range of topics. And the best part is that you can re-watch a lot of streams – including Patrycja’s stream on the Basics of TailwindCss. Even if audio and video start a bit delayed, it’s worth checking out!

Lina – refreshes her coding skills via stackstream.

Finally 18 🎉

It’s been a year since the last update and last week the time had finally come – React is now available in version 18.0.0. Some are happy about the new features, others dread an upgrade because of breaking changes. No matter to which side you belong, there is nothing better than reading the changelog – the newspaper of developers .

Python, C or shell scripts – which programming language is best for hacking?

It doesn’t matter! Says the Chaos Computer Club. Even though there is no uniform definition of a “hacker”, a distinction can still be made between black-hat, gray-hat and white-hat hackers. However, the preferred programming languages for hacking do not change. Which languages are used does not matter much and is often related to the popularity of currently popular languages.
