Weeknotes - Week 21/2019

Posted on in weeknotes.

A fountain in Leuven.

I published two new blog posts this week:

I started reading Accessibility For Everyone by Laura Kalbag. It’s a great book that reminded me why accessibility is so important and what we as designers and developers can do to improve it.

Another go at making the best pizza in the world.

Bon Appetit finalised their quest for the ultimate pizza (also available in written form), so I tried out their ‘definite’ recipe for their dough. It came out pretty well! The key takeaway for me is that they use multiple types of flour, which I didn’t do in the past. I’m not using the same kind of flour as they do (as it’s a bit hard to get over here in Belgium), but using a mix of 60% all purpose flour and 40% pizza flour (00 flour) worked out very well for me. It also made the dough much easier to handle.

I got a few requests for some new very exciting projects this week. Let’s hope these will come to fruition!

Some other smaller things:

  • I’ve noticed that the quality of the New Music selection of Apple Music varies wildly from week to week. Some weeks its song selection is genuinely amazing, but other weeks (like last week) it’s awful. This week is better, but still not ideal.
  • Apple announced their new MacBook Pro models, with an improved keyboard. I’m cautiously optimistic, but I need to see how these hold up in the next couple of months.
  • I delved deeper into the world of HTML Canvas for a project, and it’s very fun to play around with. Maybe I should also look into WebGL soon…
