Been playing #Shadowrun HK lately, and really enjoying it!
Usually #games aim for presentation parity of action & storytelling (e.g. high fidelity character models to both shoot at & talk to). However, action & story often don't align tonally (e.g. sensitive protagonist on a killing spree).
Shadowrun is opposite: action is turn based, tactical combat, & story is delivered with text paragraphs & dialog (without animation/voice over). But #cyberpunk do-or-die desperate tone matches up perfectly!
Just listened to the latest episode of Complete Developer Podcast:
It's about giving talks on conferences. I liked how they go beyond pointers for your presentation and also talk about picking a topic, refining and submitting it, audience interaction, etc.
GopherCon 2019 talks are finally live on YouTube! 🍿
Lightning talks playlist:
Original agenda, since YouTube videos are lacking excerpts:
"Should I Add Push Notifications To My Website? - No". That's all fun but I would not be that strict, there's some interesting usecases for push notif, BUT as usually website abused it for the sack of engagement, users are annoyed by it, the usual story https://shouldiaddpushnotificationstomy.website/
The character art is super cute (like an old school Disney cartoon!) and the gameplay premise is interesting (you research phenomenon around you and publish the results, thus influencing the world).
I was sure this article would make me furious. Now I dunno.
They didn't "make the mugshot look like the suspect," they covered tattoos up the way someone trying to get away with a crime might do.
Clark Kent wears glasses. He can't be Superman, right?
I #amReading Semiosis by Sue Burke, and half wat through I'm really enjoying it!
The colonization efforts and group politics remind me of Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy.
The alien world building is what really shines. Kinda like spider storyline in Children of Time. Not as hard-core as Mars colonization, but more exciting and fresh.
Jumping cross time makes story progress nicely and insures no single character becomes too boring.
I promised an anonymous poll I'd recommend #docker Mac app to a friend, so here goes
I don't always use Docker on Mac, but when I do, I prefer Docker for Mac.
I forgot how to use hashtags so I made a list of cool ones to remind me what to do:

also I have no idea what to tag this, fml
