It's alive!

So you might have noticed that has a brand new look and feel. It's because I migrated to Vapor 4 early in January, 2020. That helped me a lot to deliver a better user experience. I'm extremely happy with the automatic dark mode support, since most of the devs prefer darker colors during the night. The site is running smooth, most of the loading times are below 1sec on average. 

Anyway, I've learned a lot about Vapor and made some new articles this month, here is an overview of everything what I've published in January. Special thanks to Ákos Véber for writing a guest post about UX and accessibility.
