Photoshop on the Web
This fascinating article details the techniques and technologies used to deliver Adobe Photoshop to the web. It includes explanations on how Web Assembly, web components, and Tensorflow.js are used to create the app. I love seeing real-world case studies of these bleeding edge web technologies!
Next.js 14 and Remix v2

Described by Wes Bos as "serverless functions meets MySpace", Valtown has released v3 with better reliability and enhanced support for web standards. Check out their use-cases page for ideas on things to build!
