Pinned toot

I think the world would be a much nicer place if we stop putting people into boxes.

Every day I read about something that one person did, following an attack on a group of people that maybe had one thing in common with the other person.

Please stop generalizing so much. ☮️

Feeling a bit stressed for the coming weeks.

I'm preparing two talks, got family coming for a visit and work requested that I be on-site the next two weeks (2 extra hours driving each day).

On top of all that we have a 5 year birthday to prepare for.

Please send extra time 😅

Do you use Gatsby? Can you help me test my upcoming plugin?

It generates twitter cards for gatsby nodes using SVG.

Expecting everyone to take everyone's feelings into account before talking/writing is not realistic.

Not hurting people's feelings intentionally is.

Step 1: Use a multivendor-vendor library
Step 2: Implement a hack to make it work for you
Step 3: Use a vendor specific library

Has anyone made a better Doodle yet?

I ask because the ad-plastered screen is blinking at an epilepsy inducing rate.

Areas where I'm trying to improve:
👾 Eye for design (spacing in particular)
👾 Testing (need to write more)

I have a deep respect for those who identify their weaknesses to improve. That still doesn't mean there is anything wrong with specialising.
We always celebrate the things we’re good at. But just because I’m good at some things doesn’t mean I’m good at everything. Here are some areas I need…

The media-button experience on Mac is far more frustrating than it is on Linux.

What I expect: Pause button pauses my music so I can listen to the YouTube clip
What happens: Pause button pauses the YouTube clip. Music keeps playing.

Do you like random people on the Internet criticizing what you do, without you even asking for their opinion?

No? Then stop doing it do others. 😎☮️

this toot travels near the speed of light to bring you big news:

Pixelfed actually federates now. We did it folks.

Today I made a micro-service that prints 'A' bytes to a file though HTTP.

Why you might ask? Well, the poop emoji is larger than one byte. 🙃

Feeling like an imposter? Afraid to put your code out there?

Experience has taught me that most real code-bases out there are worse than anything a perfectionist imposter will put together on his/hers own.

So get it out there. It might not be perfect, but code rarely is.

At my University I learned a little C and C++ and while I don't program in it, I appreciate being familiar with Makefiles how gcc works and stuff like that when building containers.

I will miss Britain terribly, if they end up leaving the EU.

Mostly for selfish reasons like wanting to shop online in English. Most EU stores sadly only serve content in their own language or only ship locally.

I also believe that Europe is stronger together. Don't leave! 🥺

Google's Cloud Run (Knative) service is pretty awesome. Very effortless to run and scale services from zero to whatever you're willing to pay.

The only pain point for me has been background processing.

🇬🇧 We're holding a new Aalborg Frontend Meetup on the 3rd of September where the theme will be GraphQL. Join us!
🇩🇰Kom og vær med til Aalborg Frontend Meetup hvor vi skal snakke om GraphQL d. 3. september.

When tailing Stackdriver logs, I really really miss
`tail -f /var/log/syslog`

My terminal never stopped tailing because I was using another terminal or switched to a browser.

I'm going to do an intro talk to next month at our Meetup in Aalborg.

Are there any existing resources that could be helpful? Such as slide-decks, notes or maybe swag?

Finished paying off my student loans yesterday.

What a relief! 😌

Caught my 4 yo scrolling coloring pages in PDF that I found for him earlier on my computer.

I have no idea how he knows how to use a mouse. Kids are quick!
