20 Things I’ve Learned in my 20 Years as a Software Engineer - It is a great read and I agree with more than just a few points they made.

Super Mario 64 has been ported to iOS - Super Mario 64 was the first and one of the few 3D platformers that actually made playing a 3D platformer enjoyable. There are a few additional links worth reading if you enjoyed the game and are curious about implementation details and what the creators have to say about it.

SSH Tunneling Explained - SSH tunneling is powerful, under-utilised and even a bit unknown. This article is a pretty good introduction.

What is js13kGames - I tremendously enjoyed the 4k demo scene back in the day and seeing the spirit being kept alive is heart-warming.

Infrastructure overview - A good infrastructure documentation and write up is in my opinion always enjoyable. While technically it does not sound like a big challenge to serve a few images, there is a lot more to it as MangaDex shows.
