Examples
Documentation comes in many forms. If you want a great article about documentation go back to the very first issue of this newsletter. Once I have learned how something works the best way for me to understand how to use it is with examples.

The entire world has been impacted by this war, and two people paid the ultimate price last week when rockets hit Poland. This war has been going on for 9 months and should never have happened in the first place. It’s not over yet and I’m not sure how it’ll end, but I hope it does soon.

Every programming language has features I don’t know about, but usually they’re not features I feel like I would use. This one looks really useful in a lot of situations.

Did you enjoy this issue?
