Highlights from this week:

Custom GPTs

Immortal Python Objects

— A discussion of PEP 683, which proposes introducing Immortal Objects into the language. This feature being developed at Instagram, where they have found that it results in more efficient memory management by bypassing reference count and garbage collection checks.

Hidden Gems in VS Code

— VS Code is arguably all the IDE you need. Reynald Adolphe gives some tips on using it efficiently. Specifically looking at Git branch management and creating simple documentation with Markdown. The GitDoc extension looks useful if you don’t want to think too hard about publishing your documentation.


— Randall Munroe never fails to entertain. Another great cartoon: Parameterball. If this seems a little random then skim over the explanation.
