If you're a web programmer of a certain age who is burned out on the cruft of modern grey goo frameworks and package management systems that evolve constantly while also collapsing under their own weight and unknowable complexity, I *highly* recommending fooling around with TIC-80, it is nice to rediscover the long-forgotten sense of accomplishment of "problem solving and writing code to make the computer do exactly what you want" versus "follow a tutorial that's slightly out of date to figure out how to install and configure a bunch of crap and 300 megabytes' worth of dependencies that will maybe sort of do what you were hoping, but never exactly, and which you'll never fully understand. Or, if you dedicate your professional life to understanding it, will be replaced by a new incompatible version within a year or two"
