I had also been encouraging them to learn languages, which was met with lukewarm response initially. Today they finally understood why being conversant in multiple languages is important.

There also was innovation. Initially the script was "come try our coffee for free" then they added "come try our coffee, it's yummy" thus comprehending the basics of marketing.

Really a lot of lessons today, and I'm feeling much much more confident about our decision to homeschool. I'm also very proud of the kids for overcoming their shyness and dealing with people.

Big day today for the kids. At the Maker Faire @jo had a coffee booth with free tasting. I got the kids to go and invite people to taste and told them they can earn 100 baht ($3.30). Initially they were bored, but when I padded it with an extra 1 baht coin for everyone they brought in, they became very diligent.

They learned confidence, to go out and communicate with people. They also learned a little more about mannerisms and polite body language and about selling.

“Serverless” means you have servers, but can’t configure/customize them.

“No-code” means there is code, but you can’t change it.

“NoSQL” means you have to learn a new query language and implement your own transaction mechanisms.

Removing complexity is not always a win.

Bullseye*, Mr. Jeffries. If you decide not to learn TDD, that's fine. Plenty of folks don't. But then your opinion of TDD isn't informed by direct experience. Also fine. But limiting.

You can learn to use TDD well and as you learn that, you will learn when not to. Your learning will be different from mine. One of you will even crack that damn CSS problem someday.

Do things and learn from them. That's all there is.

career advice?

Australian wildfires are tragic

But exploited in the climate debate as unprecedented and near-proof of climate emergency

Australia burnt area this season (red dot) and over the satellite era

Area burnt not increasing
This year not unprecedented


I've been looking to dump #Instagram for a while and move to #Pixelfed. Thanks to @jaz pix.toot.wales now has mobile app support, which means I can post via @fedilab from my phone. It's an awesome app that I use for nearly all my posts here as well, and the developer is making it free from the Play Store for a limited period as an incentive to join the #fediverse. If you fancy joining me I'm @gomez over there.
