i don't begrudge students that feel the need to have Practical Git Experience (see also ) but "github experience" is very much a weird sort of proxy for lots of other things: working in a team, managing a divergent branches of development, coordinating/reviewing work, project management, etc. those are all valuable, but curmudgeon me definitely puts many of those in the "get you an internship that does both" bucket since those process vary so much between orgs

still pretty impressed that watching that Making Of Burial's Untrue video got me playing MGS again

i find it hilarious that my brain associates sundry tech (even new ones) with random places in cambridge ma long after having moved away. Couchdb is Royal East, Firebase is Lafayette Square looking towards Mariposa Cafe, clojure is the foyer just outside of the daycare in stata.

Should async dependencies in a react project be modeled as adjacent sibling components or as components that notify their children when data is available?

@ksunter is that somebody just running it in their dorm or is it a sipb joint?
