Dev talk recommendations, boosts 👌
If you had to pick one conference talk that has impacted the way you think / develop software the most: which would it be and why?
For me, it’d have to be ‘Making Impossible States Impossible’ by Richard Feldman for how it talks about restricting your models and using the computer and type system to avoid invalid states. “Testing is good. Impossible is better. “
@pureevil Yeah, I do believe it is. I’m on NixOS. I thought I saw an issue saying it’s related to Nix on some way, but couldn’t find it now (I’m on my phone).
Sorry for the late replies, by the way. Notifications don’t seem to be coming through correctly.
@pureevil Oh, interesting. And indeed, I do use Spacemacs, but my issue was with Stack itself. stack init, stack build, etc would all fail with the same Docker-related error, so I'm not sure the copying of compiler tools would help in this case.
Thanks, though! I'll probably run into it again soon and see what I can do about it :D
@pureevil Ooh, I ran into this the other day too, but never found a solution for it. I’d love to hear about it if you find a solution 😇
@kaushalmodi Thanks 😁 And yeah, being able to write using org mode was very important to me - - - maybe more so than it should have been, hah 😅
While working on it, I accidentally pushed 100+ tags to the site's repo (oops) and had to find a way to fix that. I ended up using xargs and had to figure out it works. Naturally, I wrote a post on that ✌️
@piggo Interesting! I must have missed that. Thanks!
@piggo Oh, sorry. I must be missing some context here. What's this media query and how does it relate to themes?
@piggo Just regular Firefox with a dark theme or is this something else? If the former, then that works just fine. I've been doing it for the last couple months, but I can't remember where I found the setting 🙄
@loke I really wish there was something like the 'Practical Vim' book for emacs (or even just for org mode); that'd be amazing!
@loke Can't remember any particular resource, but org-mode still makes me go 'wow' whenever I discover something new.
I came from Vim / other editors with Vim bindings, and a friend showed me spacemacs. Love at first sight, pretty much.
I want to create a config from the ground up once, but not quite yet.
Oh, my god. I don't know why it matters, but after moving most application-level packages into a buildenv.nix file for my specific user and out of the global configuration, everything suddenly feels a lot snappier. Plus I can start rebuilding my system again 🎉 All that's left in system level config is system stuff and some CLI tools.
I can run slack/spotify/alacritty without wrapping them and the fans don't whine constantly 😅
Oh, the joys of learning #NixOS

Most labels on my keyboard are at least partially incorrect.
