A friend of mine who is a woman of colour recently left a job where she had a racist, sexist, asswipe of a boss. She was the only woman (apart from his wife who was HR) at the startup. He refused to look at her work but told her she'd done it wrong, made her book team outings...

Learning about localisation from @elibelly@twitter.com at . "Always let the user choose their own locale". There are lots of helpful standards and libraries in various languages and frameworks. Don't forget that localisation is part of accessibility.

St Louis really pulled out all the stops last night. Food market, harvest moon under the arch, beautiful sunset and bearable temperature! [Pics show deep fried ravioli (super yum!) and a wine slushie (not great!)]

The always inspiring @stephaniecodes@twitter.com lighting up the room @strangeloop_stl@twitter.com. Talk about your wearable tech, she's literally coated in it!

Odysseus: "We're sending the biggest fleet that ever sailed."

Going to the 40th Birthday party of someone who likes hiking and music. Iced some more cakes

I'm currently taking some time off work to recover from burnout. I'd apologize to anyone who follows me for tech content and not cats and rainbows (if there are such people), but can't be sorry. There will be tech again, but for now I am mostly doing brain recovery.

New hair! Thanks to Matthew @ instagram.com/rushhairdalston. Transformation into a My Little Pony going well. πŸŒˆπŸ¦„βœ¨πŸ’–
