Top picks — 2020 June
The Last of Us Part II isn’t just Naughty Dog’s most ambitious game — it’s the most accessible, too
It is fantastic to see that accessibility features are considered early in the process of game creation, not like an afterthought that very often happens in the tech industry. Naughty Dog did an amazing job by introducing a plethora of features like high-contrast mode or magnification feature. I am not a big gamer, but this one I pre-ordered months ago. After reading this I appreciate the masterpiece of this title even more.

Nikita Prokopov — the creator of Fira Code and one of the biggest font faces for developers under the moon published this article to convince us all to buy a new monitor for programming. To top it off it is full of very interesting typography knowledge and little know facts about macOS and Windows internals and its font rendering mechanisms.
