So @Google, in so doing you will produce a generation of disposable developers who will have no understanding of the ethics of computing, the history of computing, the theoretic underpinnings of computing, or the ability to learn how to learn. twitter.com/zeeshanusmani/stat

@ctrlshifti i try to avoid "future proofing" my code. instead i start out with a minimum viable product and then pivot when needed.

Software architecture is all about decisions. Models are largely just the scaffolding we use to visualize, reason about, and document those decisions. Code is the medium whereby we make those decisions manifest.

Every enduring system has all three of these, in varying quantity.

"Close brackets at line end"

-> less lines, better overview (I see more code with one glace, as more fits on the screen!)

Hi @ErgoDoxEZ! How long will it take for an order to arrive in Canada 🇨🇦 during these crazy times of crisis? This work-from-home thing is keeping me separated from my @daskeyboard so I'm eager to save my hands from any pain

The best time to refactor your code base was 20 commits ago. The second best time is now.

Does any safety car or medical car exist even in the virtual race?
If yes, I won't do that as as a safety reason.
