Since my TL is full of “don’t go to talks at confs”: there is a 2nd side to this.

It’s positively soul crushing to put all your love into a talk for weeks & months, & then give it to an empty room.

The lack of energy in the room also makes for a worse video online. #PyCon2019

As much as I have been *strongly* critical o #mozilla / #rust's move away from IRC, I have to admit that they're going about the transition in a thoughtful way: exple.tive.org/blarg/2019/05/0

I disagree with some of the views, but I admire the work and hope they can find an open alternative that meets their needs

Interesting, looks like they are taking the principles of FOSS and applying them to hardware and #electricalengineering design. Still, I think it's not exactly what I'm looking for. Is there an #ee community like the FSF that allows hobbyists and EEs alike to share and freely license their schematics/designs? I don't have any extraordinary schems (mostly for guitar pedal circuits), but I think it would be incredibly cool to have a site and community that did just that.

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.
