I like not having to pay attention and make sure my code is formatted correctly before submitting a patch. Just run a tool and its good to go.
That way, all code is formatted consistently. Which more important than it being formatted the way you want it to be.
I used to think like this - and have many opinions on how to format code.
But nowadays, since I work with 10s of other engineers and on FOSS, the more consistent code is and the more work can be automated away the better.
another hot take: FUCK linters. they encourage people to not pay attention to the way their formatting code and then their whole project ends up being a pile of crap only understandable by 10x engineers
Mostly these are all down to not having enough time to play games amongst doing all the other hobbies and life things that are more important to me than playing games.
Samathy is doing ANOTHER talk later this year.
Magical Code Fairy @Samathy_Barratt@twitter.com will be sharing their talk "This is a talk about Nothing" at @email@example.com in October.
I.e it feels like its requiring more effort to achieve the same target.
But 🤷♀️ I've been to the gym less recently, so I might just have lost a little strength from not going so often.
This talk seemed to go down pretty well!
I think I'd like to give it again elsewhere.
Suggestions on good conferences/meetups to talk about caching algorithms welcome 😊 📣
Slides from today's talk @firstname.lastname@example.org - happy to share copies of any papers cited in the notes or other papers in the field.
.@email@example.com, proprietors of fine tech talks and foxgloves. 🌿 🌸
This is clearly taking over from my 'I want an analog synthesizer' phase.
I hope im not the only person to imagine how they'd exist in their favorite fantasy worlds.
So Samathy isn't a jewel thief - but she is certainly an augmented freighter captain known for running blockaids to provide food, water and evacuation to the oppressed.
cant stop thinking abt the general rule of trans names being that trans men take the names of drowned victorian boys, trans woman take the names of cyberpunk jewel thieves, and nonbinary people choose their favourite 3 letters and make it their name
I'm really excited to go from stores-have-them-if-youre-very-lucky size 9 to an actually possible to find size, like even an 8 would be much easier.
Reminder for trans friends: HRT can change your shoe size over time.
I was a 9 pre-HRT and now I’m a 7.5.
Don’t do what I did and keep buying shoes that are too big because you didn’t notice they’d changed that much 👀
Ran through my talk again tonight - feeling pretty good about it!
Slides are nice, got my algorithms fresh in my brain, it's gonna go well 😊
#TechNott is this Monday! Caching and Documenting - talks from @Samathy_Barratt@twitter.com & @firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll see you then - 18:30 at
I almost used this is my talk slides for tomorrow night - but figured although it's funny, it's got nothing to do with caching algorithms 😔
