Big personal announcement! 🎉
After almost 6 years of working for myself I'm finally headed back to the world of employment (😱)! I'm soon going to be joining Monzo as an Engineering Manager, and couldn't be more excited.
I've written more, including the whats and whys here: https://sallylait.com/blog/2018/11/21/a-new-chapter/ 😀
I’ve written a quick blog post about a high-level template I use to kick off some of my technical detective work. You’re welcome to take and adapt it for your own needs.

Earlier this week I sent some thoughts to @thisisjofrank around permissions on the web. I've collected them together into a blog post in case they're more widely useful to spark conversation. Here you go! https://sallylait.com/blog/2018/09/27/thinking-about-permissions/
I posted (a bit emotionally) yesterday on the birdsite after having had some wine and getting this lovely recommendation. Today I followed up by saying that if I've ever worked/spoken/collaborated with you and you'd like either private or public feedback/recommendations, please ask without embarrassment. That stands here too. And if I haven't, think about who you can feed back to - it can help them keep doing what they do.
Wow, this is pretty important. Google have created a search interface (https://toolbox.google.com/datasetsearch) for searching datasets. Here's the blog post: https://www.blog.google/products/search/making-it-easier-discover-datasets/amp/ #opendata

Since my language toot the other day I've had a few people asking questions about how I'm learning and what I use. I wrote a blog post both to help answer that, and as a bit of a benchmark for future me 🙂 #日本語 #Japanese
Planning the tail-end of my year and keen to have new chats!
