It's a smaller newsletter this week as I have been swamped with some other projects. Fear not though, this weeks content is awesome and each of these is worth a read.

We have an interesting take on deduping SQS messages. There is a new CDN out called Pika that makes those JavaScript imports a breeze. Troy Hunt also released a blog post this week that lays out the vision he has for Have I Been Pwned, it's an awesome read!

Thank you again for being a subscriber and I hope you enjoy this weeks content. As always, if there is something you want to see more of, feel free to contact me!
