What is the “shell” of Bearers of the Shells?
Sure, we found out that may people don’t understand the shell thing we mean for the term “Bearers of the Shells”. We’re not selling seashells and don’t own some shares on the Royal Dutch Shell, anyway. The shell, as in BOTS here is the computer shell, and we found it difficult to translate its meaning […]
The few odd things found on Hacktoberfest 2022’s presents.
Alright, so, the Hacktoberfest 2022’s presents are finally here! The first thing I’m looking here is, well, for DigitalOcean’s shark stickers. And it seems this is the first Hacktoberfest, over those consecutive years, who doesn’t offer them. Quite disappointing. I think it’s also to note that some Indonesian devs here are complaining for higher import…
Universal.css: The Tailwind CSS that never was.
Are you tired to organize your CSS class names? Check out Universal.css, the only CSS you need. It’s available for just under 5MB storage, but it’s really worth the size. (Just don’t use Tailwind CSS, it’s a cheap ripoff of Universal.css).

#DEVDiscuss: to Specialize or to Generalize? by Erin Bensinger (DEV Community 👩💻👨💻) The skill and career journey I’ve adopted so far is the diamond approach: As a beginner, it’s okay to specialize on one thing before moving to others. But specialization should have its limits. I started myself in late-2013 as a (HTML and CSS)…
15,000 emails. 8 months. All delivered to you from the only one roothouse.
It was June 2021 and we were trying to send emails for those joining HISHOT 2021, an online community seminar held by the Computer Science Studient Association of BINUS University (HINTI BINUS).

Some notes on Google’s plans to block older apps on Android 14.
I recently read this Gizmodo article which I can say, quite misleading at some points. And for a little background, Google recently added to Android’s code base to prevent apps who are designed for Android 5.1 or lower to be installed into the operating system.
