Thanks to @gudenau for getting us our new :smash: emoji 🙇‍♂️🎉

I wrote a blog post about the differences between JavaScript and iOS developers, from a hippy-dippy "we're all the same, but also different, let's learn from each other" angle. I hope you like it.

Well, staycation. I'm "going to New York on vacation", is the attitude I'm trying to cultivate.

Structured staycation: The Met, Katz's, the Bonsai Museum... I still have a lot to plan!

Wake up Monday morning "ugh I need a vacation"

*remembers I'm on vacation next week*

"Oh, right!"

Follow-up on this: we shipped on time! I will kind of miss the daily Peace Room.

Ash Furrow boosted

We're nearing the deadline for a big project at work, so my team has set up a daily knowledge-share (everyone works in a room/dials in and can ask questions, to make asynchronous communication synchronous).

They initially called it the "War Room" and I objected because war is bad, actually, and now they're calling it the "Peace Room" and I really love my colleagues.
