Cloudflare Workers have been a hot topic for a while now. I finally decided to dive in and build what I always wanted - a small URL shortener. The blog post includes a bunch of ready-to-go code snippets, examples, and a full working repo for you to test out.

Maybe you should do less ‘work’
There’s been a lot of hush around:
- The Great Resignation
- The Great Reset
- Quiet Quitting
- Quiet Firing
This blog post is a bit gentle and doesn’t use any of these terms. Instead, the author goes about how much ‘work’ work you should do and what else you should be focusing on while ‘working’.
That’s it, no second link. Maybe I should really do less here. Let me know what you think. In the meantime, I’ll focus on bookmarking more interesting resources and reads for you.
Thanks for tuning in. Let me know how you like the new blog post and the link I shared.
Catch you in the next one,
