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. ☮️

Random thought: Why is it default to flood Inboxes with accepted meeting requests? Wouldn't it make sense only notify on rejections or comments?

I held my first workshop on React. I learned a bunch of Webpack and mdx-deck while prepering

Friends, tell me something you learned this week. Can be anything.

I’ll go first. I learned what opaque types are in Flow, and how they can be used to enforce data access through a public API in a codebase.

Its some years now since I stopped using Google and I don't see the need for it.
Try duckduckgo.com too.
It's quite good and doesn't generate a bubble around you.

Has anyone else noticed that Google is getting worse at search?
- It keeps ignoring keywords
- Searching for code is almost impossible
- Even quotes are being ignored
- Results return 404 (page not found)

Backed! Help fund AppCenter and Elementary OS

"iOS vs. Android App UI Design: The Complete Guide" by @erikdkennedy@twitter.com is an awesome reasource for anyone creating a cross-platform app that needs to look native.

I wonder if anyone at Microsoft has tried the Mac Office installer recently.

Lucky for me, I love puzzles!

Does anyone know of an alternative to mdx-deck?

I love using MDX for decks, but I just feel the latest version of mdx-deck is bloated, yet still lacking core functions like bundling fonts and images.

mdx-deck is still cool, it's just a bit too heavy for my taste

Xstate looks like an extremely cool way to describe flow heavy state. But, it sure is a lot to take in.

Hopefully I'll get there before 🤯

I want to hold a little intro to React (Native) workshop for work. Is there any good material out there I can use?

Thinking slides and exercises. Here's to hoping 🤞

My work laptop has 8G ram. I need to decide if I want to run Android Studio or Firefox.

Also, swap is still a thing. 🤔

What I love about test-first when coding is that I can get creative with moving stuff. Just moved a bunch of stuff around and it just feels awesome to see exactly what functionality was effected.

"Tutorial: How to share code between iOS, Android & Web using React Native, react-native-web and monorepo" by @brunolemos@twitter.com is an excellent source for anyone considering monorepos for React (Native) development.

Note to self: A bag of cheetos the night before a gym day was not the best idea 🤭

So many people follow me here, but I've never really written a proper #introduction. Time to change that!

Hey there, I'm Chris, but most friends call me 'muesli'. I'm a geek, a software developer, a maker, an opensource advocate and a tech enthusiast. I love programming and tinkering with things. I started almost three decades ago with Basic, and have learned & used Pascal, Assembly, C, C++, Java, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Rust, Go, and Lua (pretty much in that order) over all these years.

Being from a nation of 350k people, hearing your native tongue when living abroad is always nice.

At my new job, there is a guy who has an Icelandic wife and he says good morning to me in Icelandic. Love it!

This makes me sad. I was always hoping that Epic would be adding Linux support to Epic Store instead of killing existing Linux releases.

Guess it's back to Steam then.

I have a weird fascination for thermal printers. I've been playing with one at work and I'm having so much fun.

Send help.

and more paper.

Do I know anyone at AWS that can help me get human support for accounts and billing?

I wouldn't ask if the templated answers were enough.
