As my 1.5 y/o demolishes the airplane I just proudly built out of her Duplo I finally understand how my older brother felt when I demolished his Lego all those years ago.

Just watched colleague @keatley@twitter.com ‘s talk @euruko@twitter.com with the team at YoungCapital. Really excellent stuff about leveraging visual memory (and Pokemon) to improve retention of code lessons and to better communicate to stakeholders. 🔥🎉💯

A common theme I’ve seen at #LeadDevLondon is Listening to and Telling Stories. Whether it’s creating a more diverse hiring process, understanding PM needs, or building a strong team, stories help us build empathy, trust, understanding, and connections. Try it today.

It’s been an inspiring couple days at #LeadDevLondon and it’s been fantastic to share the time with some of the YoungCapital dev team! Looking forward to sharing everything we’ve learned when we get back.

Shame is too often used as a teaching tool, but it rarely achieves those goals. More often it encourages disengagement and fear. Rather than shaming people for mistakes, create a learning opportunity and help them improve. @thisisfranklin@twitter.com #LeadDevLondon

My key takeaways from the first day at #LeadDevLondon. An excellent day! Looking forward to another one. #sketchnotes

So proud. 🇬🇧

I forgot how sophisticated England is at queueing... #LeadDevLondon

Highly recommend reading this if you use npm. It’s the text from a talk given at @JSConfEU@twitter.com on Saturday by @ceejbot@twitter.com. The story of how npm came to be is pretty intriguing if you don’t know it already, but the essay leads to a pretty interesting announcement: https://github.com/ceejbot/economics-of-package-management/blob/master/essay.md

TL;DR It’s a federated package registry for JavaScript. 😱 https://github.com/entropic-dev/entropic/
