Hi, my name is Louis. I’m 20 years old.
In this post, you can find out what I do away from espresso commercials.
Here is a small overview:

It all started 19 years ago, with my birth in Hildesheim, Germany. (Trust me, Hildesheim is one of the most beautiful cities here in Germany).
In 2020, I finally graduated from high school. …
In most countries of the world, there is so-called deposit insurance.
This insurance usually is government-sponsored and guarantees that the amount you had in your account at a bank that, for example, went bankrupt, will be fully refunded up to the amount of the deposit insurance.
So if the deposit insurance is $100,000 and you had $80,000 in your account, you get the full $80,000 back. If you had more than $100,000, then you lost everything over $100,000.
The trick is to divide the money into several accounts since the deposit protection always applies per account. So if you are…

Thanks to modern technology, we don’t even need our wallets anymore.
We can pay on the internet with PayPal, in stores with Apple Pay, Google Pay, or simply with our credit card. We don’t really need cash anymore — paying digitally is usually much more comfortable.
But without us realizing it, it costs us more. The convenience of digital payments is that we don’t have to touch our money — which is the downside. We lose the sense of money and how much we have.
Anyone who has ever paid with cash knows the…
Small recap, in case you are unsure what immutability means:
[…] an immutable object is an object whose state cannot be modified after it is created.
— Goetz et al. Java Concurrency in Practice. Addison Wesley Professional, 2006
constdoes not generally make our variables immutable.
The immutability of const variables applies only to primitive data types.
Here is an example. …
He is the embodiment of the genius and madness cliche.
Nietzsche is perhaps the most misunderstood, controversial, and provocative philosopher ever. I want to shed some light on him.
The man, famous for his god is dead words, wasn’t crazy (At least not for most of his life). Instead, he was a brilliant thinker and writer with a remarkable academic career. At the age of just 24, he gave his first lecture as a professor of philosophy¹.
Yet, Nietzsche seems to be misunderstood by so many. I had the same experience at first, too. When I was 13, I stumbled…
A couple of days ago, I discovered how awesome Cloudflare is.
To make things easier, there are a lot of starter templates for everything you need. A special one I discovered is called Flareact — it’s a React.js-based serverless starter. Don’t ask me how to pronounce it. (Maybe Flare-act?)
Normal people think of nostalgia as old photos, music, or places.
On the other hand, I have been using jQuery today — after all these years & many projects. The library appeared in 2006, many years before React, Vue, and even Angular.js.
But what about now, with the classic library? What has changed, who still uses it, and what about its popularity? Here are the answers.
Static site generators provide a remedy. When building the production version, they render as much as possible directly into HTML, which is then available statically.
It is important to understand that the framework and all its features, such as hooks in React, are still included. Static site generators (from now on, just “SSGs”) render the facade of our site. A lot of JS code is still included.
Handlebars is a pretty helpful templating engine to build websites. It used to be very famous in the front end until the frameworks gained popularity. Now, templating engines are primarily used in the back end to render websites on the server. In this article, we look at how to use handlebars as the templating language for your Go webserver. We use Go’s super-fast Fiber framework to make things easier, which is basically Express.js for Go.
First, we create a new directory and initialize a Go project in it:
go mod init
Then, we install the needed dependencies: The templating language…
The coolest thing is that if we already understand finalizers, it directly helps us understand other new features: WeakMap, WeakSet, and weak references in general.
But first: What’s the motivation to understand this?
It’s about memory leaks and performance.
