Okay. I should do an #introductions post.
I'm jackyalciné. I work with software a lot. I run often. I cook. I also track a lot of my life digitally. I have more information at https://jacky.wtf/press/.
I give talks in tech + social justice + Black history (and intersections thereof). I'm from New York, chilling out West now.
I have a habit for breaking things and putting them back together with a test harness. I'm open to banter but only if it's peaceful and for growth.
I'm kinda mad. Especially as a Patreon. Now I'm strongly opting to just move off any form of centralized federation.
So it's definitely possible.
Best believe I'll be attempting this in the far future.
I have a video of my last session uploading to Twitch and YouTube - might aim to self host it if it's cost effective (the forgotten aspect of self hosting).
* I switch context a _lot_. I jump from terminal -> docs -> web -> terminal in under a minute.
* I need to work at talking about my flow out loud. It's a good way to do a live assertion of what I'm working on.
* Try to open up with an agenda in the form of unit tests.
Still hacking away at ActivityStream.
(starting this live coding stream in like 10 seconds)
I keep asking myself - do I need to implement JSON-LD in order to get ActivityStreams so I have an ActivityPub library?
I think so.
Okay. Home. Not going out this weekend (at least not tonight) so we finna implement JSON-LD in C++ tonight.
Also note to self/passive aggressive note to others: don't criticize non-technical users who call the whole thing Mastodon (or, increasingly, Pleroma).
For now, I'm going le FUG to sleep
That being this: https://git.jacky.wtf/indieweb/libactivitypub/pulls/1/files.
I'm going to work on making testing straightforward. Running it under Docker makes a bit easier
