Dear #fediverse. I work as an #architect and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing #engineer who can teach me building energy modelling using #opensource tools. I have a background in software dev, run #gentoo #linux and am willing to learn down to the details.
I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.
I promise to use this to design better buildings.
Please help retoot this so I can find someone.

I'm just curious..., please explain.
Many thanks in advance.
Hey #Lisp #CommonLisp people - I'd like to give a shoutout to @jackdaniel who is one of the maintainers of Embeddable Common Lisp and McCLIM and a very active Lisp hacker (see http://turtleware.eu/posts/My-everlasting-Common-Lisp-TODO-list.html for details).
He just opened up a Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/user/posts?u=4441966 - if you'd like to support the amazing Lisp work he does, throw a few bucks his way!
I've published my #lisp todo lisp for year 2019. http://turtleware.eu/posts/My-everlasting-Common-Lisp-TODO-list.html #ecl #mcclim
