Week 263

Happy New Year! I really enjoyed reading “Monorepos: Please don’t!” by Matt Klein. While not related specifically to iOS development, it’s a very good read for any developer. I really enjoyed the thorough analysis and I think he makes some really good points.

In other news, if you go to the UI/UX section, you’ll see that I actually linked to a research paper. And yes, I know the study is 3 years old, but it’s still relevant and interesting to read it.
