forloop Weekly

Hello there!
I hope you've had a fantastic weekend. If you're bursting with energy for the new week, here's more stuff to stoke your excitement.

No matter how long you've been coding for, you'll find that you occasionally (or even often) have to Google stuff; how to replace that repo, why that test isn't working, and more. If you find yourself at a point where you can't recall even a basic thing, remember that it's completely normal and simply Google it. In this post, Gift Egwenu resonates this thinking and shares the Art of Googling; how to find just what you need.

- With the advent of Android 10, the biggest change for developers is the implementation of dark mode. Did you know that you can support dark mode on your site via the
prefers-color-theme media query? Find out more in Thomas Steiner's Hello darkness, my old friend.

- Don't forget that you can donate to the biggest remote tech conference in Africa, Concatenate Conference 2019, as an individual or organization, here. Find more information on donation and schedule for the conference here.

- JAMstack Lagos 2.0 will be taking place on the 14th of September, 2019. Check out the speakers who will be at the meetup. If you're yet to register for the event, save your seat now.
