Small nations like Anguilla (.ai) and Tuvalu (.tv) are benefiting from their coveted domain names.

The US government is suing Apple for violation of antitrust laws, which could have a huge impact on devs, end users, and the whole ecosystem.

Reddit went public last week despite not being profitable since its launch in 2005.

How can you give feedback on a poorly reviewed PR? The Software Engineering Stack Exchange has ideas.

The four day work week is probably not the solution to our work-life balance problems.

AI-powered software development tools like Devon show promise, but their impact on code quality and maintainability remains an open question.
