Leaving for the Perl Conference in Glasgow soon-ish, looking forward to see some familiar Perl faces again. I do have to take a flight though, and I don't like flying :(

For the first time in two years, I've written for my blog. Usually I daren't because I feel I'm not a very good writer (especially in English).
This may not be the best time to start blogging either - we're expecting our second child in the next three weeks - but over the next few posts I hope to explore dependent types and the problems it solves.
First post is titled "a case against exceptions"
This month's #perl6 #squashaton has ended, and with it comes another #weekly post from lizmat! https://p6weekly.wordpress.com/2018/08/06/2018-32-squashathon-done/
lol, amp. i noticed that a page would suddenly appear after 8 seconds of waiting if i disabled js, which seemed pretty weird.
turns out that there's a css3 anim to hide the page for 8 full seconds (that is skipped when the js loads ofc).
this is *required* by the amp standard. your page fails validation if you don't do this.
sure makes these goog results look kinda suspicious, huh

It is time again! A new #perl6 #weekly post has been published! https://p6weekly.wordpress.com/2018/07/23/2018-30-triplicate-guts/
My site now sports RSS 2.0 and Atom for feeds. Also, new projects will now appear in the feeds, in addition to regular posts.

People who work on software in their free time choose projects for all sorts of reasons. Sometimes that reason is "silly idealism", and not "to be popular". But sometimes idealism results in beautiful things.
Talented people might not work on the things you like. They might even fork things that you like and turn them into things that are scary/different.
imo, that's fine. I don't want to live in a world where everyone has one choice of everything. Aiming to take over the world rather than thrive within it is a proprietary mindset.
