Strolling in the neighborhood. Lots of people out today. Definitely feels like winter is coming ☀️❄️

This is what we have to face daily as developers 🙈 I often get very close to giving up 😅 How should we have any hope that we can build software anyone is supposed to trust?


Remember the upstream bug from 2 wooks ago that we said could take down the entire network? The same bug that could remotely crash SSH servers or code using RSA or x509 certs? A zero day in Go since forever?

Myeah... lemme present you the fix! 🤯🤪🤓🙃

Same in our dev workflow. The value of a repl and CI/CD are underestimated even by us that value them already :)


I still underestimate the compounding power of the rapid execution and iterated learning feedback loop.

A commitment to this, over the course of a career, is the closest thing you can get to guaranteed success.

Great this new Microsoft isn't it...


Esoteric metrics based on analyzing extensive data about employee activities has been mostly the domain of fringe software vendors. Now it's built into MS 365.

A new feature to calculate 'productivity scores' turns Microsoft 365 into an full-fledged workplace surveillance tool:

We waited a bit too long. CI is always a joy to work on 🙈 Luckily we already have our own registry and "only" need to move things over.

Imagine the pain others might be in right now 🙏

I am sure Docker biz generates some good cash right now 🙃

Docker rate limiting is fun! Seems like they now got serious enforcing it. 100reqs/6h is really not a lot.

Hades is an awesome and addictive game btw 🙏

and I haven't really played computer games in a long time..

It makes me unreasonably happy that in 2020 my laptop came with Linux & Steam preinstalled, I can download Hades, which is only available as Windows build, then it runs flawless thanks to protondb, and I control it with an XBox controller via Bluetooth

more like world hate organization 🙄


WHO is blocking comments that contains “Taiwan” on their official Facebook Page

Getting this sort of insights is exactly why we are building to gather and analyze patient reported outcome 🙏


What happened to 488 people who survived and hospitalization 60 days later?
The obsession w/ fatalities & hospitalizations misses all of this; much can occur w/ mild infections

We need a placement algorithm for work that basically behaves like going to the men's bathroom.
Every dot must be placed as far away from the last. Slowly filling gaps.
Anyone knows the name for such an algorithm?

Love this statement from a Clojure job posting on clojurians Slack 😎

"Our backend is around 25% Clojure and 75% JS/TS, but Clojure does the heavy lifting"

Have you seen an AWS Terraform config? Is that simple? What do you really need? How can you build a solution for the problem & scale you actually have?

For most of us AWS/GCP/Azure are a scam. They convince us that their services make our live easier. They make sure we believe Linux is scary.

Another great vim trick: Edit files remotely
Highly recommend subscribing to :)
The great thing is, vim and scp work basically everywhere. So might be even helpful if vim is not your main editor.

Germany has the power to make a difference for the people of Thailand, but we all know that dealing with totalitarian governments allows for much more convenient trade deals when exploiting developing countries than treating another people equally to our own. Such inconvenience.

German capitalist exploitation at it's finest. It's systematic, global rule of the corporate overlords. We should stop pointing fingers at other countries and get our own shit figured out.
