Play-Doh Transistors, Code Formatting and more

It’s Memon Mondays!

This newsletter is my experiment to share all the cool things I find during the week and share them with my like-minded friends.



End of a Decade — A review of last decade in terms of tech, rise of app and web economies and other defining characteristic of this decade.

Transistors out of Play-Doh — A simulation of the transistor manufacturing process using Play-Doh. This was sent by Asif.

Speaking of my friend Asif, he just started a new newsletter with focus on Makers, DIY, Electronics and lot more Physical science. Check it out here.



This fun little game — I think what’s also interesting is the source code, it’s made in a React variant for 3D! I guess it makes sense as React is inspired by game-engine style update/render loop.

Prettier 2.0 — The already great code formatter got a new version with some more sensible defaults. If you are not already using this in your code, I would highly recommend it, specially if two or more people work on it. Prettier makes sure your code has consistent formatting.

How Prince of Persia slew the Apple II’s memory limitation

Illustrated jq tutorial — jq is a unix tool to parse or transform JSON. jq is useful when you want to write a script to deal with any JSON data. It’s a powerful utility but equally complicated.


That’s it friends! Have a great week. Stay safe, maintain social distance, and wash your hands.

Also inbox me if you got something cool to share!
