Hi all. I'm Charlie, a middle-aged British woman living in Berlin, Germany. I'm all about #a11y, #inclusivedesign, and #techminimalism in the tech scene. I tend to swear a lot over in The Other Place - https://twitter.com/sonniesedge - but I'm slowly migrating here.
I'm also ginger, a raging carb fiend, trans, and masssssively homo.
Think it's time to go back to blogging and long form. Twitter and Mastodon just encourage dopamine nasty hits. Get angry about this tweet, hate that screencap (seriously, we're back to screencapping shit already?), uh oh that person said the wrong thing, let's get the pitchforks oiled up.
I've done all this stuff myself, and and I've seen all this stuff everyday from others. I'm still sick of it.
Think I might take a vacation from all social media. I'm not actually seeing the benefits any more.
Guess all social media is the same deep down.
I couldn't even give a shit whether he's here or not. But watching everyone get their ugly faces on... nope.
At this point I'd like the ability to block posts that have CWs in them. :(

Maybe I'd get pocket money. 🤔
It's technically possible, but not sure she's thought it through. 😂
I cycled on the sidewalk because of a construction site making the road rather unsafe for my taste. Got reprimanded by the police. Then an old lady came up to rant about the police and the system together, which I rather enjoyed. She also told me she had an issue with her Android phone. I fixed it for her and she gave me a bar of chocolate despite my lamentations that I'm on a diet. So in short: I got rewarded for violating the law and I feel pretty okay about it. 🚲👮🏻♂️🧓🏻 ☭ 🍫
After I graduated with a degree in Computer Engineering, my first on-the-job mentor asked me: “Do you prefer working on software or hardware?”
He knew it was important to make that choice. My degree focused more on hardware but I preferred software.
I think this really nails why Full Stack is a misnomer. It’s important to make a choice between Back/Front-end or you’ll spread yourself too thin.
