Max Antonucci

Journalist turned full-time coder, part-time ponderer.

Hello Readers.

I’m Max Antonucci. I write code, blog posts, notebooks, and musings.

As a programmer, I code for the front-end and back-end. For my work, I write a lot of JavaScript, Ruby, and Ruby on Rails. I'm also building more specialized knowledge in web accessibility and design systems.

As a writer, I write to remember lessons I've learned in programming, mental health, philosophy, and life in general. Or random things I need to get out of my head.

As a chainsaw juggler, I don't do anything since I don't exist.

Recent Writing

My blog is where I keep my big lessons. Sometimes they're important code knowledge or concepts. Sometimes it's career or life lessons. Other times it's broad changes in how I think. But they're all short stories taken from the novel of my life.

Recent Notes

Whatever I want to write but can't quite fit into my blog goes here. From the profound to the silly to the random, it shall be scribbled in a note.

I respect the leaves that, even now, are clinging to their trees.

Imagine you're one of those leaves. A deep, hopeless chill is falling over the land. Over many weeks you've seen most of your friends fall to their deaths. Your strength is slowly fading as the forces of nature pull you towards a mass grave. You look down at this mass grave each day as a reminder of your unavoidable fate of death.

Yet still, you cling to the tree. You know you can't beat nature, but you choose to spite it a moment longer. Now that is perseverance.

One of the biggest things keeping me going through the pandemic is the Libby app. I can get free eBooks about epic wizard sagas and dysfunctional space cadets without risking death or, even worse, awkward social interactions.

The best things in life are free. The better best things in life are free but get returned after two weeks.
