I have already published one post about Progressive Web Apps (PWA) a few months back. It looks like Google is investing a lot of efforts to make it a new standard of building websites. At the last Google I/O, there were a few announcements made related to making PWA a default feature in a few popular boilerplates and CLIs for libraries like React, Preact, Polymer or Vue. I recommend watching the following presentation by Addy Osmani:
I got very excited when watching this talk for React Europe by Leland Richardson:
Sri Lanka is an island country in South Asia near south-east India. It was known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon. It’s still more recognizable in Poland by its old name because of the popularity of Ceylon tea. However this country has much more to offer, it is not limited to the picturesque tea hills. There is majestic wild life with mighty elephants in the lead. The country has sandy beaches overgrown with paradise palm trees that perfectly match with bright sunny warm days. We stayed at the west coast of the island in July last year. The sea temperature was high at that time, but it was less suitable for swimming because there were high tides and strong currents.
There is a big valley in Silesia region surrounding Jelenia Góra city. In the 19th century, the lovely landscape attracted the Prussian high nobility, which built magnificent palaces, manors and parks. The enormous number of stately homes turned the valley into one of the most important garden landscapes in the Middle Europe. This is where well-known European families: the Habsburgs, Hohenzollerns, Schaffgotschs, Czartoryski or Radzivills built their residences. Some of those monumental buildings have survived till this day. They have been recently restored and made available to the tourists, giving a unique opportunity to travel back in time. This includes palaces in Łomnica, Wojanów, Pakoszów or Karpniki which I visited in the past week with unspeakable pleasure.
They still didn’t switch to the metric system in the United States. They are using non-metric, archaic Imperial system of weights and measures. I collected some hints which are helpful where you need to convert units from one system to another.
