Marc Benioff memorably stated that the only constant in the technology industry is change. Having worked in tech for over 15 years, I can confirm this. Fellow tech dinosaurs can attest that the way the web worked in the early days is drastically different than many of us could have even imagined. While this constant…
Photos power the web! They give the words the meaning and the eyes as a way to visualize! However, the photos need to be actively resized and managed so that they do not burden your site and make them slow. In this article, we are going to take a look at some of the best…

Recently, I had to make a web page displaying a bunch of SVG graphs for an analytics dashboard. I used a bunch of <rect>, <line> and <text> elements on each graph to visualize certain metrics. This works and renders just fine, but results in a bloated DOM tree, where each shape is represented as separate…

We are building an app that allows you to search Stack Overflow, docs, and code on GitHub. Fully controllable using just keyboard
My friend and I are building an app called Devbook that might be especially helpful if you’re learning a new language or starting with programming in general.
It’s a desktop app that allows you to search in Stack Overflow, search and read documentation, and search public code on GitHub from a single place. The whole app can be controlled just using a keyboard. No need to use your mouse. This way, it’s easier to stay in the flow, focused and more productive.
If you’re familiar with macOS then it’s kind of like Spotlight. When you hit a global shortcut, Devbook appears as an overlay over any app you might be using at the moment.
You can think about Devbook as a search engine made just for developers. But no ads, content marketing, SEO, etc.
We’re shipping new features every week. Some of the last updates include a way to copy code directly from Stack Overflow answers and something we call the pin mode. When the pin mode is enabled, Devbook doesn’t disappear when you change the focused window. It’s great when you want to keep coding and have look at Devbook at the same time.
Some of the features we plan for the next few weeks:
I thought folks here might find Devbook especially helpful so I’d love to know what you think. Give it a try and let me know!
Here’s a short video of me using Devbook
The app is built using TypeScript + React + Electron.
A fun thing that happened a few days ago. Someone posted a meme about Devbook to r/ProgrammerHumor. It was a great source of new users!
Things have changed quite a bit over the last decade when we just started exploring what we could do on a tiny, shiny mobile screen. These days, with mobile traffic accounting for over 50% of web traffic, it’s fair to assume that the very first encounter of your prospect customers with your brand will happen…
Behind every successful marketing strategy, there’s a persuasive PowerPoint presentation. It’s the presentation that helps you to convince the team to go ahead with your marketing plan in the first place. Every marketer needs to be skilled at creating slideshows and delivering engaging presentations. Of course, there’s no need to enroll in a class to…
Last week, I gave you an update on everything that’s happened with GDPR since 2018. (TL;DR: A lot has changed.) In this article, we’ll look at cookie consent: specifically, the paradox where marketers are heavily reliant on Google Analytics cookie data but need to comply with regulations. We’ll take a look at two developments that…
