Mal an die #Programmierer hier. Gibt es ein Buch, welches verständlich Programmieren unter #Linux erklärt, wo man keine Konsolenprogramme baut sondern Fensterprogramme? Für Windows habe ich da "C++ mit Visual Studio 2017 und Windows Forms-Anwendungen" #Follerpower #Retoot wäre nice

Dictionaries, in computer science/programming. Ordered by key/insertion order or not?

Q: does anybody have a great resource for really learning GraphQL? I've been using it for a few years super on and off, but I always feel like I'm hacking stuff together.

(would a huge, multiple days long, GitHub outage change our minds?)

Even Apache Software Found. doesn't want to run their own git infrastructure 😞

Not huge fan myself, but I really really hope chooses as its official replacement. They kickstarted Talk as a Disqus competitor (now that's with Vox Media); it'd be great if one of the more promising tools would get a 2y funding through them as well. Unfortunately the open messenger landscape is so fractured and immature atm, that I'm a bit pessimistic overall 😕

I just learned that #Mozilla will abandon #IRC. In general I think it is a good move to look for something more modern. I'm curious what they will chose at the end. For me the three main qualities would be: #free (aka Free Software), #decentralized & #open (aka open protocols) exple.tive.org/blarg/2019/04/2

Shall we do another #NameAndFame Friday? There are many free and/or #opensource software makers that deserve a shoutout.

This week I'd like to name #Jitsi Meet, a nice opensource videoconference tool, available via browser, on mobile and there's a desktop (Electron) app as well: github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-el

You can use Jitsi Meet or set up your own Jitsi server. The best part is that you don't need an account to create or join a conference.

Who would you like to boost for #NameAndFame Friday?

🤡 Cool thing I just found out is possible in HTML. No practical use, just fun.

Wie verwaltet ihr eure Fotosammlung? Spricht etwas gegen Adobe Bridge? Die so geänderten Metadaten können von anderen Programmen wie Xnview ausgelesen werden und die Arbeit ist nicht umsonst, sobald AB eingestampft wird oder kostenpflichtig wird. Übersehe ich einen gravierenden Nachteil? #foto #verwalten #adobe #hilfe #frage

can someone recommend a FOSS desktop client for mastodon not using Electron an not being commandline based?

also: Postman’s wannabe-funny startup screen (slooooww) is annoying.

A colleague commented my switch from Postman to Insomnia with: “For me, Postman is close to perfect software.“ — And I would almost agree, it’s doing its job pretty well. But for me the marketing-first website of PM and the closed development really started to bother me. Insomnia may not be as rock-solid yet (although I haven’t found any show-stoppers in my daily work) and I wish it had a larger group of contributors, but it freed me from “vendor lock-in fear” and that alone makes it worth it.

I'm ashamed of being bitter for such a small thing but ASCII art gaining such a traction again in popular social networks bothers me so much because (1) it never works with my accessibility settings and (2) I always struggle to understand what message people are trying to convey

I feel left out

Anyone use any software for cataloging postmortems?
