software hacker who loves diving into code and creating way too many side projects. day job is writing open source software, mainly for cloud infrastructure projects.
on a personal level, i love music, listening to and making. some of my absolute favs: grateful dead, frank zappa, phish. i also do a fair bit of online gaming.
i'm exploring mastodon as my social media journey continues. i really dig the social and technological implications of mastodon and want to join the community =)

there are some cool things happening in the kubernetes cluster api community, we have recently pushed forward to support a kubemark provider to help with testing cluster lifecycle components.

i wrote up some of my thoughts and a description of my devel environment:

Today I received the tragic news that Jörg Schilling, famous for #cdrtools, #star and other projects, has passed away. Regardless of all the flamewars we had over licensing in the past, Jörg was a giant to me. May he find peace. Thank you, Jörg, for all you did.

watching a cool code walkthrough for the Kubernetes Cluster API project, kudos to the community for creating such a nice video:

is there a difference between a /deepest darkest secret/ and a /deepest dankest secret/ ?

completed my first project \o/

been learning the framework for a couple months now, and i gotta say i've accomplished more during those months than i have during the entire last year when i was hacking away on my own engines/games.

mad props and love to the godot team! <3

it's a very simple game, based off r/p/s, but i wanted something i could finish and didn't have to create too many rules. GPLv3 code and using CC licensed art/fonts.

The Thumble is done!

A DIY midi controller made from microcontroller, keyboard switches, & laser cut plywood. open hardware, GPL firmware.

I added build photos and a Lessons Learned section at the end. This is surprisingly different to play than my previous instrument, the Waffletone - dancing thumbs instead of stationary fingers make a big difference. Next time I'll use flatter stiffer keys and spread them out a bit more.


in the matrix, we see a shot of neo's passport which says that it expires on 11 september 2001. it also says neo is a resident of 'capital city', suggesting the matrix and the simpsons take place in the same universe

Your important reminder of the day:

"The purpose of the web software industry is to extract value out of Open-Source Software (OSS). [...] Most people in the industry don’t realise that the web dev economy is primarily extractive."

a friend and colleague has been on a journey for several years now. recently he's had a chance to put some of that experience into his work at $JOB. he wrote a really nice article summarizing some of the practical use cases they've encountered.

i feel like there needs to be a gathering named "Hack the Gibson", i would attend XD

Howdy Mastodon!

Engineer working for Previously I worked on Ubuntu Phone and doing multimedia/TV, almost all consumer electronics.

An Open Source advocate and Ubuntu member. Was a co-founder for Inkscape and now serve on its board.

I think that one mistake I made with my Twitter account was making it all technical, expect this to have more politics and other stuff.

"On a personal level, Freaking Out is a process whereby an individual casts off outmoded and restricting standards of thinking, dress, and social etiquette in order to express creatively his relationship to his immediate environment and the social structure as a whole."

Frank Zappa

Just so that we all agree: eating two cans of Ben & Jerry's ice cream is a perfectly reasonable reaction to a long and stressful day, right?

Such is the life of a hobby project...
Almost 5 years to the day: a 0.1.0 release 😁

Mastodon for Tech Folks

This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
