Potpourri of topics today that look at frontend tech, some product launches, industry trends, and how to be funny.

[blog] Creating inclusive apps with Flutter: Best practices for accessibility. Admittedly, this isn’t something I thought about much when I started as a software developer twenty-something years ago. I do now. Good post.

[blog] Log Analytics in Cloud Logging is now GA. Very cool new functionality here. Analyze application, network, and audit logs (basically everything) in BigQuery. Write complex SQL, retain logs for a decade, and more.

[news] Google’s Muse model could be the next big thing for generative AI. This will be a wild year for AI and I suspect we’ll see some legit mainstream adoption. And hype. Lots of hype.

[article] The Hidden Costs of ‘Free’ Internal Developer Portals. Contrarian viewpoints catch my attention nowadays as I see so many shared viewpoints out there. Developer portals are all the rage, and can be awesome. This article highlights where there’s risk hosting your own.

[blog] Built with BigQuery: Solving scale and complexity in retail pricing with BigQuery, Looker, Analytics Hub and more. Data processing and analytics is hard enough for one company, but what if you’re a SaaS provider offering these services to a host of tenants? Good case study here.

[blog] Why You Should Pay Attention to WebAssembly. As SOG says in the post, it’s early, but not too early to pay attention.
