    Musings & rants on software

    Writing about it. Corporate programming often sucks the joy out of figuring out small things.

    A few years ago, I started writing about simple things that I learn during my day-to-day work. I write on my personal [site](https://rednafi.com) that I cobbled together in a single weekend.

    It doesn’t take much time and works as a great confidence booster when a few of them eventually hit the front page of HN.

    Now I often pick up new things just so that I can write about it.

  • A-Frame

    :a: Web framework for building virtual reality experiences.

    I hear you. I come from a web dev background too and co-created A-Frame (https://aframe.io/) 8 years ago taking some of the Unity ideas (entity component) while retaining the fun parts of Web deving and publishing. Games and 3D graphics is super deep. Joy for me is having always interesting areas to explore that are not just the accidental complexity of the regular Web dev tooling.
