I should also say, I'm kind of terrified of running something built on the Littlelogs source again, because it's all in Python, and I have no idea about web dev! I've been picking it up, but it feels scary to take on a project so far out of my depth.

Thinking about the values I'd run Littlelogs with, if I bring it back as a more broad social network (it used to be a social network for logging progress: blog.hellocode.co/post/littlel). Main ones would be inclusion/diversity, transparency into processes, community-driven decisions & participation, thoughtfulness, and safety. What am I missing?

@ashfurrow Hi Ash! At Playgrounds your talk got me interested in promises and these days I'm all-in and love them for everything. I've started learning Kotlin & can't get my head around how coroutines relate/differ to promises. Do you know much about them and/or have any good resources you could point me to? No stress if not, thanks anyway for the priceless info at Playgrounds! It's made my code heeeaps better :)

It's been a day since I posted a photo of my so here he is being a good boy and not eating this ice cream tub full of food.

Found a Stack Overflow question that matched my problem with no answer. Figured it out on my own, started to write an answer, but stopped, because SO has been unwelcoming to me before. We all lose out on knowledge when you make some people feel unwelcome.

What frameworks/libraries do you use in pretty much every project? Mine on iOS: TableKit, PromiseKit, SnapKit, CocoaLumberjack. On Android: Fuel, Kovenant, Anko.

Hey fediverse, I need to find more music to buy on bandcamp. What's one album you love and would recommend? Let's start a thread.

It's hard to pick just one, but I'm gonna go with Haley Heynderickx's I Need To Start a Garden: tunes.mamabirdrecordingco.com/

The time I feel most affinity with parents is when my dog brings me his bone and asks me to hold it in my hand so he can chew on it without it moving around.

australia day should be february 29th to tell the rest of the world that nationalism is bullshit and once every four years is quite enough to collectively wank over ourselves thanks cobbers

I've seen some people talking about public criticism after my post yesterday on leaving Micro.blog, so I wanted to share some thoughts on that: blog.bellebcooper.com/public-c

Ironically, people on Micro.blog can't see this yet because the servers seem to be backed up. I posted it a while ago and it still hasn't shown up.

In case anyone's interested, I wrote a looong post about why I'm leaving Micro.blog and how I'd like to see it improve: blog.bellebcooper.com/leaving-

more than code, we need stewardship. more than individual action, we need comrades. more than blame, we need standards. more than the benevolence of dictators, we need accountable governance. together we are strong, and together our works grow stronger!

This cute boy is in the kennels while I head off to 3 days of iOS conference. I miss him and hope he's doing lots of this right now.

Today I published a blog post full of observations on raising a puppy: blog.bellebcooper.com/ (It includes many cute photos like the one attached to this toot.)

New people of Mastodon:

Welcome! I'm happy you are here! Here are some tips for accessibility

You can add a description to an image you post by clicking on the image before you hit TOOT! Type in a brief description. It helps people who use screen readers to know what the image is.

When using a hashtag:

Not good: #hereismyhashtag

Good: #HereIsMyHashtag

Screen readers garble the first one, but can read the second one because of the capitalization.
