Moderating an online conference a day when random parts of the internet are failing. The nightmare of any event organizer.

And people still wonder why women are running away from the tech industry.

What a mystery! How strange are women! How could anyone understand their motivations! It's not as if we are explaining it, right?

The advice to monitor the evolution of all your employees is not to promote lazy women. It is because women are usually offered less and promoted less than their male peers.

The advice to make sure everyone have a voice in every meeting is not to hear stupid rants from women you will ignore. It is because there is a bias on how much each gender talk and how much they are interrupted.

The advice to add hiring quotas to your team is not because you have to hire tokens to look good. It is because women are usually ranked as less competent than men even if they have the same qualifications.

The advice to rewrite job offers with less mandatory requirements and using must-should-could method is not because you are lowering the requirements. It is because men tend to apply for jobs they barely fit while women tend to not apply unless they have a 100% match.

Postgres question: say I have a query that yields a table with ~2M rows as a result of a PostGIS fishnetting operation. Storing all 2M of those rows is costly, but so is doing the fishnetting operation. The fishnetting operation always yields the same result set, is there some way I can store that, or would that be as costly as storing rows? #mastodev #gistribe
