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 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
There’s still time left in our campaign to snag some of this limited-run swag! Make sure you’re backing on @Indiegogo

"iOS vs. Android App UI Design: The Complete Guide" by 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 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.
Rocket League will be ending support for macOS and Linux in March

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.
