Omar's technical writing newsletter

From Omar's notebook.

Sign up below to be notified whenever I publish something new. I write mainly about computer graphics, but also sometimes about adjacent fields like mapping/geospatial, web, image compression, etc. See my previous writing.

Examples of the kinds of things I enjoy writing:

Unraveling the JPEG

I explain how JPEG images work with interactive diagrams for each layer of compression.

How to render outlines in WebGL

I started this newsletter in November 2022, as people started moving away from Twitter, and it sounded exhausting to try and establish a whole new following on new platforms.

This newsletter is my attempt to connect with community irrespective of platform. I enjoy writing content that is useful to others; it's a way for me to connect & collaborate. So if you just want to keep in touch & follow my work you should sign up!
