Replying to myself

@pietvanzoen@twitter.com This has been my afternoon:

Basically even if you're transferring to an external device the file is cached with the Files app. And when the storage is full you can't move anything off the iPad, even to an external device. The only way to purge the cache is to delete/reinstall the Files app. 😱

The whole thing is glitchy as fuck.

iPadOS storage management is mind boggling. Transferring files from an app to a USB stick seems to first add the file to the Files app (taking up storage) before transferring to the stick. There seem to be no way to free up the space in on the iPad after the transfer. 🤯

This is the first ever “every developer should know” list I agree with. 💯

5 things every front end developer should know in 2021:

1. Keeping up with everything is pointless.
2. It takes years before knowing if a tech might stick.
3. You don’t need all the skills listed on job opportunities.
4. Empathy > Technology
5. Tech Twitter tells a lot of crap. https://t.co/nIg7PGFxqu

The primary purpose of software testing is to detect any potential defects in a program before it reaches its intended consumers. This is typically achieved by establishing functional requirements which define supported user interactions as well as expected outcomes, and then…

Any runners have tips for a heart rate training planner/plan? I’m running a 5k once a week but at a pretty high HR. I’d like to work towards 10k but I know I need to get my average HR down. 🏃‍♂️💓
