Today I Learned

This is a page of things I learn/encounter daily. I am trying to organize these so that I can classify them better. Some are links to blogs, others to github or to other websites where I learn something interesting every day. I usually structure this with some helpful description so I can find it later. To be honest, this is mainly so I can track links in a way that is not reliant on external services. I plan to build a Telegram bot that manages this page for me. I can then introduce tagging and search, through the bot, of course.
