Last week, I forgot to share with you that there will be no weekend edition this week. My husband and I will enjoy a long weekend mostly offline and away from the screens. We will hang out with friends and their friends at a hacienda in Yucatán. I hope you can also get away from the computers for a time.

In that spirit, I just send you a few links: A couple of reminders, new info on releases and a great discussion for developers on ways to avoid the duplication of code in PHP and JavaScript, when building dynamic blocks.

More next week with Weekend Edition 204.

Yours, 💕
