When a new hire dev asks how do you deploy to prod and you show it:
Congrats, Plone, for absorbing Zope!
Thinking on Zope today, I realized that amongst the top programmers I know, @email@example.com is maybe the least acknowledged. He creates novel solutions to each problem he tackles, and makes it look easy. It isn't. :)
Why Bitcoin matters for human rights, in two minutes.
You wouldn’t know it from my feed, but in my day job I lead the mobile team at an ehealth company. And we’re hiring! Please share with any enthusiastic Android devs you might know:
Hall-of-Fame Hacker News comment claiming nobody will ever have faith in #Bitcoin as a currency 🍿💯👌
Microsoft was demoing Linux apps in Windows.
Apple was showing the Linux desktop on macOS.
Lenovo now ships their entire workstation line with Ubuntu, Fedora, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Market share of Linux nearly tripled in various web counter stats too.
My wife and I are going through a bit of a rough time at the moment. We're privileged to be in a better position than a lot of people right now, but we're stuck indefinitely outside our country of residence (China) and surfing from couch to couch. Most of our money is in a Chinese bank account we can't access while outside China (looong story). If anyone can offer me some paid work I can do remotely from #Aotearoa (#NZ), that would really help.
If the only way you can help is a boost, cool :)

Oldest millennial is now 39 years old & did u know that our group owns only 3% of the totally wealth vs the boomers during the same age owned 21% of total.
This crisis has not destroyed to create just like 2008. When will the millennials gain wealth? 39 is close to middle age.
Really excited about the release of this new research into decentralized systems and UX/usability considerations... a topic very close to my heart.
The BRRRR meme goes all the way back to the 1800s when Lincoln issued the greenback to help fight the civil war. It was a fiat currency, not backed by gold.
Selling weed literally went from major felony to essential business (open during pandemic) in much of America & yet many are still in prison. Doesn’t make sense, isn’t right.
All these social networks suck because of the lack of user controls. Let me handle my own censoring. Let me build a web of trust. I don't need to see more Yelp reviews from the guy who rated McDonalds the best hamburger ever. Show me the average rating of those I trust.
I'm currently busy rewriting large parts of the UI layer of Converse.js to use web components via #LitElement.
Very impressed so far with the rendering speed of lit-html.
Lots of improvements still in the pipeline.
Looks like Converse.js has reached 2500 starts on Github.
I remember thinking back in the day that getting more than 50 stars (the biggest Github project I was working on at the time) would be nice.
Still going strong 💪
