@ChrisWere Thanks! Looks really good! Going to check out LinuxRocks and functional.cafe
@valerauko I used to think of the home timeline as for “my interests” but the problem is I don’t discover new people very easily that way (for clojure in particular i only have 4-5 regular tooters, despite adding nearly everyone I see that uses the hashtag)
@yogthos That’s brilliant. Very nice metaphor for why throwing bodies at a problem doesn’t speed it up.
@ben0_o keep at it man. One day we will shitpost with the best of them
there's some interesting stuff in this article about how coders often don't recognize that they're fixing a security vulnerability at the time they fix it: https://medium.com/@shnatsel/how-rusts-standard-library-was-vulnerable-for-years-and-nobody-noticed-aebf0503c3d6
unfortunately, the author is full of themselves, with that all-too-common coderbro attitude of "anyone who doesn't have the exact subset of knowledge that i have, is an idiot, probably maliciously so"
@vrcca Companies that use Clojure are usually modern enough to also support at least partial remote working (part-remote jobs way outnumber fully remote ones I think)
@art_rbpyjs I had a similar problem recently and found multimethods a better solution
Ever get halfway through writing a toot before realising it’s all bollocks and bailing out? #daily
the risk I took was calculated but man am I bad at math Show more
Regarding climate change the risk model changed.
It used to be: “we have these human driven emissions that create a lot of problems but if we dial the emissions back things normalize within a few decades”
Based on newer research it is: “human emissions have a chance to tip Earth climate into a positive feedback loop, stuck at 4-5C warming from which not even zero human emissions would rescue us”
Most people don’t know yet.
A few months ago I got my first project in #Scala and really enjoyed it, then I came across #Clojure and #Elixir, came back to Scala and tried `sbt test`. It made me wait 15 minutes to even start running the tests. Now I don’t even want to look at it.
Compared to Clojure and Elixir, Scala is a monster of a language. It’s better than Java though (for FP).
Wondering what to put in the description field on an image? A quick guide:
1. Just say what's in the image--you don't need to say it's an image.
2. Describe only what's relevant to the conversation. "Annalee writing in a notebook" or "An example of candid portraiture" or "A person using a fountain pen" are all good captions of the same image, in different contexts.
3. All text that's meant to be read should be transcribed. Screencap? Transcribe. Sign in background of selfie? Don't transcribe.
@rysiek Aha, that blue-green article confirms something I’d wondered about after some confusing Chinese conversations. Thanks!
@bgardner Check out some of its friends like as-> and cond->. Useful stuff
@squeakypancakes haha, so it was. Got something nice now though
@squeakypancakes Super, thanks!
@squeakypancakes How do you get the menu bar and window controls in the top panel?
- rolling release, so new packages, kernels
- well tested so very stable despite being rolling
- good KDE support
- great rollback utility, configured by default
- coolest logo and branding
Not great for:
- minimalists (lots of packages included by default - configurable of course)
- systemd-haters (understandable, though personally I tolerate it)
Yet another software engineer filling up the Internet with drivel. Toots about Clojure, Lisps, Python, JS, GNU/Linux, FOSS, Privacy, Emacs, DevOps, etc. #nobot
