This week we have mighty back-end dev, Uriahs, in the captain's chair. He's picked out a bunch of fantastic links for you. I only regret that we couldn't make this an audio newsletter because the dude has voiceover quality tones.

Still, you'll enjoy the following regardless:

💵 Google plans to ban sugar daddy apps from the Play Store.
🎤 Uber to offer free language lessons to their best drivers.
🎨 Code as art.


Uriahs and Chris.
