Visual Studio Code Live Share - Safe and Reproducible!
Hi everyone, time for another blog post. This one’s about an idea I had while taking part in “mob-programming” with a friend. I did not know what mob-programming was, but it was the first time I got to use the Live Share feature in Visual Studio Code. It was a pretty smooth experience! It was very interesting being able to share a code editor with no work on my part. I was able to see the host’s project directory structure, terminal (read-only access), and the code as it was being edited, kind of like a Google Doc.

Fedora 32 released this week! How do I get Docker working again?
Hey everyone, Fedora 32 was released earlier this week on the 28th. I like to have the latest software running on my computer so I upgraded as soon as I could, but I noticed something when I ran my next dnf check-update.
