Extremely successful engineer, top of my game, now I have no money and can't pay rent.

A company just sent me a personality test?

Do everything right in an interview and a company can still say "No."

Did the first playtest of my board game:

- Need more agency
- Two player seems monotonous? Too chess like?
- 5 players will probably be complete chaos, might need different rules
- Board is bland.

I've started answering/merging PRs to tootsuite/documentation again and it feels great :3

@Gargron Hey, how interested are you in implementing read/write connections for mastodon?

โ€œEvery gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.โ€ - U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Hey mastodon, I'm a game developer and I just got laid off

I'm in a bit of shock right now so uhh. fuck

Casual reminder that is free, open source software, development of which is crowdfunded through Patreon: patreon.com/mastodon

If you care less about development, consider supporting your local instance admin instead (in case of mastodon.social that's still me and link above, YMMV)

I am extremely sad that my father will have to go to work again. I wish I made 3x more than I currently do. I wasted so much time and energy and money on stupid shit that had no long term consequence. I was lucky to get in an incredibly lucrative career and still wasted so much.

What if you had a language with partial application:

bonus: a -> b -> add(multiply(a)(2))(b)

bonus(4)(10) = 8

But you could add whatever you wanted between each call (like a comment):

bonus: a -> b -> add(multiply(a)by(2))to(b)

If you're new to mastodon, we welcome you. You'll find a lot of people here. My suggestion is to make a status talking about what you like to talk about. People from the fediverse will pop in as they see it in the federated timeline tab (The globe above the new status screen).

I mostly talk about functional programming, web development, and docker for development. My blog is kurtis.rainbolt-greene.online/ and I hope you grow to love mastodon like I do.

The massive industry of 'turning normal people into developers' weirdly creeps me out, in part, perhaps, due to the predatory nature of bootcamps which are basically just for-profit schools by a different name.

#introductions Hi! I'm Olivier, from France. I'm an independent consultant specialised in coops and more specifically farmers' coops. I've got a PhD in Economics and I've been studying coops for the last 12 years.
I'd be glad to discover coops stories from all over the world and follow the #platformcoop movement.

I'm also discovering Mastodon so I need a little time to get acquainted to it...

How do you test randomness? What about complex data structures with randomness?

My linting philosophy: Don't make busy work for yourself, you have too much to do already.
