To explore that, I decided to do a case study on the massively popular game Among Us, which relies on color encoding as a primary identifier for players.
There are a lot of tutorials and guides out there that teach CSS grid in general, and I wrote about it multiple times. However, I noticed that there is a misunderstanding of the minmax() function as most of the articles are generic or don’t provide enough explanation and real-world use-cases.

A few years ago, Bloomberg Engineering decided to adopt TypeScript as a first-class supported language. This article shares some of the insights and lessons we learned during this journey. The headline is that we found TypeScript to be a strong net positive! Please keep that in mind when reading about some of the surprising corners we explored. As engineers, we are naturally attracted to seeing, solving and sharing problems, even when we’re having a good time 😉
