"Agile is about knowing, as early as possible, just how screwed we are." - Clean Agile

After personal experience trying to find suitable apps, I wonder: what apps do other people wish existed, but don't? Maybe @switchingsocial@mastodon.at has some insight (๐Ÿ˜‰)?

Bit of a bad day with ; after multiple releases to get on top of the new requirements by Google (target SDK 28, support 64-bit), hit an issue that broke the app on all pre-Pie versions of Android

PackageInfo.versionCode is deprecated, so it won't build. Use the new version, and it won't run on pre-Pie versions. There's a compatibility package, but to use _that_ you have to update your app to use AndroidX and install Jetifier to hot-patch your node_modules... ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Works now. Need ๐Ÿบ

@cloudflarelink definitely add me to that blacklist for no replies plz ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hello #Fediverse!

Now that we have our collective, bank account and donation system setup, we're also investigating alternative #funding options.

Nobody in our team seem to have experience with grants/sponsorships, so if you have experience with these, or know some grants/organizations we should look into, would you mind getting in touch?

(No forum topic listed, this is currently an internal team discussion)

Thank you very much, #BoostsAppreciated!

Tech Question, Home Server 

The quintessential Hacker News thread (sibling comments no less):

* keep your bedroom door open to reduce CO2 build up
* keep your bedroom closed in case of fire

Although, closeyourdoor.org _is_ something I wasn't aware of before now... ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

The latest Storybundle
is The Warp Speed Ahead Adventure SF Bundle, curated by Kevin J. Anderson.

A huge bundle of 14 DRM-free science fiction e-books.

I'm particularly interested in The Refugee by C.A. Hartman and Blue Sky Tomorrows by L.J. Hachmeister. They look awesome!

Each book in multiple formats for all your devices.

OK, so I can't sync my files, calendars, contacts, my todo list, access my bookmarks, or my gitlab server - definitely time for HA ๐Ÿ˜…

After debating whether to set up a HA environment on for weeks, and deciding against it, my droplet just went down and won't come back up ๐Ÿ˜…

commit; push; test; build; tag; deploy dev; scan for CVEs; push to staging; deploy to staging...

Next up: deploy to production and integration

I love and ๐Ÿ˜Š
