Items of the week
Webpack - when using the dev server, we can visit the
/webpack-dev-serverroute to access a list of all the files being served, this is mentioned as a tip on the official documentation page.
HTTP/2 - just because a server speaks the protocol doesn’t mean the underlying implementation is correct and given that HTTP/2 clients rely more on the server compared to older versions of HTTP, the impact might be worse. Got that from chapter 13 of High Performance Browser Networking.
On the week 50 of 2021, we saw a demo from Dell on Concept Pari - a magnetic webcam that can be attached to anywhere on a monitor screen, allowing video call participants to have eye contacts, or at least virtually. The demo was covered by Ars Technica with some comparison on Dell’s previous webcam designs.
