My best code is not the code where others go "wow, that's complex! however did you manage to write that?"

My best code is where others go "that's obvious, what's the big deal?"

In this way code resembles magic.

Metallica is one of my favorite bands, the music itself is almost always good and the lyrics are generally pretty decent as well. πŸ‘Œ

@alexbuzzbee I have no idea how many people I’m following, or how many I follow. I simply don’t care. Enjoying the community is what’s important to me, not follower counts.

You can do a lot of very specific stuff with repeating events in iCal files. Often more specific stuff than the GUI of your calendar app supports.

Google's way of downplaying an open calendar file standard, in order to give their own proprietary, non-interoperable calendar SaaS an edge: call it "Apple calendar":

Managed to get a dark theme in . Don't understand, why all the designers love so bright interfaces. After two days using it, I got my eyes hurting and I can barely read things printed on a paper.

After getting dark theme, my eyes got into normal state in several minutes or so. God bless the dark theme!

People at work start considering me as β€œoh, you’re that guy who post much of things about Scala, why do you do it?”. And I respond that I do . Then they ask me about y opinion on it. And I tell, β€œWe’ll it’s more difficult than ” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

now THIS is epic

(exactly what it says on the tin: a visualization of orbital satellites, etc - VERY cool)

Being a bit angry about how developers care about other developers. Have opened a documentation for some library, and I could bare read it. So I've opened dev tools and fixed my possibility to read it in three minutes.

Here is a web page:

CSS rules I've applied:

body { font-size: 16px; color: black; }
-content-wrapper section pre code { font-size: 16px; }

Accessibility is really easy! Why people don't care about possibility to use in favor of "glance"?

Also, from the conference:

1. People are reinventing things for a frontend that were created in 97 year.

2. Web is broken and we, web developers, are responsible for it. It is time to fix it!

3. TypeScript feels pretty a nice language :)

4. Grammarly is developed by the awesomest engineers I've ever seen in my life.

I've got the after-conference effect. I now want to read and learn new things regarding programming and FP even more ^_^

Sometimes I feel that learning functional programming has a lot in common with learning programming from scratch. With learning new language that has very different language constructions than one you feel confident with.

Programmers and lawmakers have one thing in common. They both create a system out of thin air and then hope that it will be used as intended

Small info about vorbis format from wikipedia:
> "Vorbis" is named after a Discworld character
> Exquisitor Vorbis in Small Gods by Terry Pratchett.
> The Ogg format, however, is not named after Nanny Ogg,
> another Discworld character; the name is in fact
> derived from "ogging", jargon that arose in the
> computer game Netrek.

It seems that people loved Discworld too! Should re-read it when have some free time :)


Giving my laptop some hard time in recoding thing from mp3 to ogg. Also, first time in my life I found out that it is easier to write a script that to write script to work with files with spaces. It took for about several hours to try making script in bash and about 15 minutes to write a python script that does literally the same, faster and more stable! is hard :D
