My wife is a High School Music Teacher, but has been saddled with additional subjects in addition to her normal Vocal Music classes and General Music classes. Her Principal decided on a split schedule of four classes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and three on Tuesday and Thursday.

deployments directly from source code repositories.
Mini-Monoliths should be hosted in services that can automatically
scale and spawn instances as necessary to meet demand or act
redundantly in the event of a failure of a mini-monolith.
Mini-Monoliths are a refinement of…

Elon creates cars that perform like race cars, but…
What if I told you that there’s a thoroughly designed and tested web framework that is ready for #Rust today? It’s completely ready to go with a high-performance web server, several identification and authorization schemes and a very flexible templating engine that you can use today!
It’s so much lighter than React or Vue and renders server side for maximum performance!
This amazing web framework is called Active Server Pages, and it’s perfect for creating Web Apps in Rust utilizing the Windows-RS project which provides COM bindings for Rust. …
It says a lot about C# that there are four major Integrated Development Environments for it. This review covers three of them because I don’t do Mac.
These three products off distinctly different philosophies on how to…
