Since I've been on Mastodon for about a month now I think it's time for an :

I'm a from the / area in North Rhine-Westphalia, ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช. I develop ๐Ÿค– apps. I like electronic music ๐ŸŽถ, movies ๐ŸŽฅ and TV shows ๐Ÿ“บ. I have a dog ๐Ÿ• and a few cats ๐Ÿˆ. I like (pristine) nature ๐ŸŒณ. Did I miss something? ๐Ÿค” Just ask me!

How did this come to my mind? I just saw an advertisement of a "healthy", artificial drink that replaces a whole meal ๐Ÿคฎ Because nowadays "we don't have time" (for cooking). Yes, sure, a drink is the solution for the underlying problem ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Hypothesis: Information technology facilitates blazing fast communication and processes around the world. This speed - which we are now accustomed to - is also expected by individuals in work environment and society. Everything needs to be done faster! We're stressed and healthy habits decrease. Unless people's lives are involved, we should probably slow down a bit. Please discuss!

How to use in a multi-module project. By the way, the structure of components and modules mentioned in this article can be more or less also applied for a multi-module project using the dependency injection library.

I guess the perfect for me at the moment would be the language syntax and features of with a compiler that takes the best of both Kotlin and (hot reload, cross-compile to , native and ).

What is your perfect language (imaginary or real)?

I'm not a big fan of template projects of complex frameworks or tools (like for example) when using them for the first time. I'm overwhelmed by the amount of files and options and have the feeling that I'm missing something. I rather start with an empty directory and create the config files by hand while reading the documentation. Then I know what every option does and have the feeling that the project is perfectly suited for my use case. Anyone else?

"I really like your app. The only annoying thing is that I have to buy the Pro version for all features." I don't get comments like these. What do people expect? That every is free? That development of apps doesn't cost a thing? People and companies need to earn money for their work... ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

On New Year's Eve in there have been serious injuries by , material damage and even a death of an uninvolved spectator, a young mother. I say fireworks should be prohibited!

You know what Pac stands for? PAC. Program and Control. Heโ€™s Program and Control Man. The whole thingโ€™s a metaphor. All he can do is consume. Heโ€™s pursued by demons that are probably just in his own head. And even if he does manage to escape by slipping out one side of the maze, what happens? He comes right back in the other side. People think itโ€™s a happy game. Itโ€™s not a happy game. Itโ€™s a fucking nightmare world. And the worst thing is? Itโ€™s real and we live in it.

I wish every hardware manufacturer would include power adapters with replaceable USB cables so in case the cable breaks you don't have to buy a whole new adapter. owners will understand! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just watched interactive movie on . Very good! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Well, I had to return that action camera because the accompanying Android app was not able to connect to the camera. I'm not the only one. There are multiple reports of this issue and the manufacturer hasn't fixed it after months ๐Ÿ˜ก The hardware might be good but without the software it's useless. Now ordered another action camera by a well-known brand for action cams โ„ข ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

"We found that at least 61 percent of apps we tested automatically transfer data to Facebook the moment a user opens the app. This happens whether people have a Facebook account or not, or whether they are logged into Facebook or not."
