It’s been a draining month for me. Nothing bad, just lots going on. I am looking forward to two weeks off though in a couple of weeks. Anyway…
Another week, another newsletter. Let’s get to it!

When I teach about CSS grid, I like to demonstrate practical techniques that don't require any tricky numbering of columns and rows.

Enjoy this throwback to when I joined @FrontendHorse last Halloween and learn ways to make grid less spooky!

I still haven’t checked out Script Kit, but my buddy Jhey is a big fan. Maybe you and I should be checking it out too?! 🤔
Jhey 🔨🐻✨ on Twitter: "What's your favorite automation tool? And why is it @scriptkitapp by @johnlindquist? 🚀 Really looking forward to creating some content around it once I get some articles off the list. Saves me so much time 🙏 https://t.co/njiNu3XK0r"

Words of Wisdom for the Week

I had too much tea, so here's some mentor-specific things I do:
- praise people in text form
- tell them to keep a work log
- bubble up their work so it's more visible to leaders
- talk about them positively in meetings they aren't in

Yes, it’s yet another newsletter folks! I post stuff in Slack and other communities I’m a part of, so instead of losing all those links to the “Slack”hole, I decided to start a newsletter!

So welcome to links to cool and interesting stuff I found on the Internet during the week, with some fun stuff too, and shameless plugs.
