Nothing like a good old mansplain from a white dude to get me going on a MonTuesday! 🙃

If I join a community specifically to meet other WOC in technical roles because of our shared experience, and didn’t meet other devs, I’d be kinda disappointed.

That being said, I would never want to exclude anyone interested in tech.

I want to ask a serious question that for some reason ppl don’t want to discuss.

If you work in marketing, sales, HR for a tech company, does that make you a woman in tech?

Note: Not making a value judgment on any these roles!

The thing about walking in New York is that if you’re not walking like someone might be right behind you at all times, you’re very likely in someone’s way and now they hate you.

I don’t make the rules. 🤷🏻‍♀️

"Most of our hiring decisions come down to little more than whims, hunches and confirmation bias, often resulting in us choosing those who resemble us most closely", recruiters say: buff.ly/2GQITh2

Lots of tweeting about gender diversity at tech conferences. Many men worried apparently about “lowering the bar”.

Dudes, the bar is ON THE FLOOR.

25 years in the industry, some of us are damn tired of listening to white guys give the same rehashed talks over and over again.

Oh! In other interesting news, I had to write a little Objective-C last week, and I managed to do it pretty easily.
I’ve been writing Swift for 4+ years, but I actually learned iOS with Obj-C and am glad I did, because I’d be completely lost in that situation if I hadn’t.

I’m still thinking about Mary J. Blige as a psychotic time traveling assassin. She was so good!

So here’s something fun. I’m working with xibs again, which I haven’t done in quite a while (BuzzFeed app is almost entirely frame based layouts).

What’s the deal with view sizes updating whenever you open a xib? Even if you don’t touch anything.

If I see bangs in your code, I will shame you. 👀🔔

Dangit! It made me cry again. 😭

Y’all... this is a crazy story about the apocalypse, time travel, kids with super powers, assassins, talking apes, sentient robots, ghosts... whew! 🤯

But ultimately it’s about family, particularly siblings, and I kinda love it. 💕

Hazel & Cha Cha might be my favorite.

18 yr old me would think I’m boss.
And probably be relieved to know everything works out pretty great... eventually.

something I’ve been wondering for myself: how would 18 year old perceive the you of today? would they think you’re cool?

Somehow there are so many foods Curtis has never tried, so I’ve made it my mission to be his guide. Tonight we are having tapas/paella, and I think I’m more excited about it than he is.

Happy Friday! 💕

Then I stumbled onto this one by Henry Ford, which I loved even more.

“New York is a different country. Maybe it ought to have a separate government. Everybody thinks differently, they just don’t know what the hell the rest of the United States is.”

Saw this quote on a LinkNYC kiosk, and I kinda loved it.

“You can do what you like, sir, but I'll tell you this. New York is the true capital of America. Every New Yorker knows it, and by God, we always shall.”
