That moment at a conference when complete strangers gather around a small table with their conference breakfast and say nothing at all.

I felt guilty popping my daughter’s balloon puppy so I put it outside in the cold and now I feel worse.

Tis the season. 🎄

I CAN FINALLY POST THIS ☃️🌲🌨 pic.twitter.com/J7McvrZXfe

Periodic reminder...

*sigh* okay:

Frontend dev: hard.
Backend dev: hard.
Language design: hard.
Writing docs: hard.
HTML/CSS: hard.
UI design: hard.
Communicating: hard.
Leading people: hard.
Management: hard.

It's all hard. Each one of these is an endless rabbit hole. And it's not a competition.

This makes me wonder about how companies with remote employees stipulate “working hours”. Given that all of the social elements of a work day are stripped away.


I have a free day on my own in Berlin next week. Give me your Berlin tips please. ☺️

What was the first video game you remember playing?

I think for me it was Harrier Attack on my cousin’s Amstrad.

Half of software development is just knowing what keywords to search for.

This is both very cool, and a really good post explanation about how to use a singular ‘they’. Also someone in the comments adds that historically ‘you’ was also only plural and transitioned to plural or singular. 🏳️‍🌈

It is now officially considered good practice in scholarly writing to use singular "they" rather than "he or she"https://t.co/p9MieSSI8w

I periodically dream about this. Except it’s a record store.

Basically I dream about becoming Rob Gordon from High Fidelity.

Thinking about leaving tech forever and starting a book store.
