☁️ 📖 Learn By Doing Volume #62 💻🔨

Happy 4th of July to everyone in the United States. We have a shorter newsletter this week because I have been enjoying the holiday.

That said, there is some awesome content this week. We take a look at the new EC2 Instance connect for SSH access directly from the AWS Console that integrates seamlessly with IAM. Adam Wathan, CSS extraordinaire makes an appearance as well to show off how you can get started using Tailwind in 12 minutes. There is also a Docker terminal UI project that is worth checking out if you need more UI in your container management.

Check out all those articles and the great 'Cool Find' of the week in this 62nd edition of the Learn By Doing newsletter. See you all next week!
