A couple of years ago I began writing a series of tech articles about web development. Each article was an “episode” in an ongoing story based on a handful of characters who worked for the fictional consulting firm I called Tangled Web Services. These were published under the Read Write Grok banner.
Half of those early stories were about the nitty-gritty of Read Write Serve, a Node.js HTTP/2 web server. The others covered CSS, HTML, and the BLUEPHRASE template language.
Near the end of 2019, I felt the urge to rant about the misuse of the word full stack. The article Full Stack Pronounced Dead, seems to have struck a chord with lots of people. To honor that impulse, I began publishing a new series of articles under the 2020 Stack banner. As we all know, 2020 didn’t turn out the way we expected, and some of my stories reflected that odd reality.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading this new batch of tech articles as much as I enjoy writing them.
