Dev at a AAA company here. I agree with the sentiment, but caveats:
My experience is from EA, and mostly DICE, which doesn't do the "grow, fire 90%, repeat" cycle.
First, every regular employee gets a bonus once a year that depends on how well the studio did that year. If a studio releases a game and it does very well, devs do actually get a nice bonus. I've seen good and bad years at DICE, and the diff is big.
Second, entire studios can get shut down if they underperform 😕
This!! A presentation should be _engaging_, and grab people's attention. But that can be done many different ways.
A slow, spooky fireside story can be engaging.
A hushed/giggly story can be engaging.
A nerdy person excitedly infodumping on their most niche hobby can be engaging.
The important part is trying to improve the things in your delivery that could make your message harder to grasp, and then using all your other attributes as... flavor! ✨✨✨
Jeri Ellsworth, as usual, being so cool that she's off the charts. This woman is amazing
@irimi1 there's a way to change it, yes, in the settings, in the "Customize" section.
As for copying the URL, a workaround is to long-press the URL bar. It shows the "copy/paste" menu then
@irimi1 I like it just because it has the option to have the UI at the bottom. That alone makes it better for me! 😄
@irimi1 Hah, nice!
For french stuff, I tend to listen to a lot of synthwave and similar stuff, so:
also, Daft Punk, of course :)
I'm surprised you listen to electronic music and France doesn't show up as pure black in that diagram! :P
More seriously, though, what kinds of electronic music are you looking for? Spain is not exactly a powerhouse of electronic stuff, but I might know some you could like
And the talk is now announced!
They tell me the video should be made available shortly after the conference, so I'll post it here too :)
Wait, have there been any DCU movies people consider good?
Wonder Woman was the only one that got close to that for me, and that was definitely not Snyder...
It's electronic jewelry!
Very much this. Never sure whether it's because I'm weird, because of the language barrier, or it's just the swedes are weird in general. So much weirdness
The PineTime might be capable of filling at least parts of that void, I think?
About 25 years ago, my city created an ordinance that fines people for driving bikes without a silencer (pretty common with scooters up till then, as you gain some efficiency by removing it).
The difference it made in just a month was **amazing**. Suddenly, streets were muuuch quieter and nice to walk around in. I really wish they banned loud bikes and cars everywhere. Fuck Maseratis and Harleys.
