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. 🔥🎉💯

I was never sold on CSS-in-JS but THIS...

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. 🇬🇧

Working on an idea for a talk about hiring and interviewing in tech. What’s one tip that changed how you think about being an interviewee or interviewer?

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/

Why yes I am listening to the Lego Movie 2 soundtrack. How are you?

@tas50@twitter.com I’m counting down the days to when Lego is no longer a significant choking hazard for Teddie.

Keyboard enthusiasts! Halp! I’m looking at getting a new keyboard. I currently have Cherry MX browns, they’re fine. I’ve really enjoyed Cherry MX reds I tried on a friends keyboard. These are my options. Advice??

I sketched out my highlights and takeaways from @FrontendUnited@twitter.com. Lots to think about. Thanks to the organisers and amazing speakers! #FrontendUnited #sketchnotes

Frontend united day 1 highlights. "This is for everyone". "Focus on the problem, not the solution". "Unconcious bias". "Harmony is greater than unison". "Logic is more important than code". "Information cascade". "Mystery meat menu". "How do we make the web better for everyone?"
Frontend United day 2 highlights. "A little design friction helps embed personality". "Design is applied ethics". "Stylabilla". "Variable fonts". "Should I use flexbox or grid? Yes!". "Technology is not neutral". "Disability is not a health problem. It's a mismatch of human interaction".

My first go doing #scetchnotes! Thanks @Cennydd@twitter.com for the ideas and inspiration around technology and ethics. #FrontendUnited
