Would anyone be interested in hearing about our adventure? We''re a feminist non-profit in the midst of migrating from Windows to : servers and desktops! We try to be as as possible, for ethical, security and privacy reasons.

I've found another reason, besides the global recession, why I feel discouraged to find a new 'career.'

I've noticed this trend of people becoming their work. Where every part of your life, your online and offline identity revolves around your job. You no longer just work - you're 'living a passion', and 'growing a brand'. It feels like the human being behind the job disappears. As if, in order to be successful, you need to commodify every aspect of your life.

Idk is this relatable in any way?

I've spent the last hour reading, re-reading, and re-re-reading a mere 3 pages out of Yanis Varoufakis' Another Now, simply because my Reddit addicted monkey brain doesn't have the attention span for analog entertainment anymore.

That face when you forget to post Dutch's amazing supermodel pics for ! 😹

I wonder how long I can still coast through the field without any AWS/Azure/GCP certs...

For Dutch people that are interested: itmg.nl/projecten/dia-esf/

They changed their website though. Before it was 100% free (half funded by the European Social Fund, half by CA-ICT), now it's 50% paid by the employer. My guess is they ran out of the CA-ICT funding. Which means I was just in time, since my non-profit employer would have never been able to reimburse me for €4000 in certs.

The program is a little basic, nothing you can't find online, but it's nice that the exams are covered :)

Finally some related news: I got accepted into a EU sponsered program to become a 'certified IT Architect.'

This means free training and exams for certs like ITIL, TOGAF, Archimate, and some general IT architecture. So that's nice! πŸ₯³

I miss WICCA in the Fediverse, they have great shirts! πŸ™†

Women In Cybersecurity Community Association WICCA is a circle of women in based in The Netherlands.πŸ‡³πŸ‡±

The goal is to bring infosec ladies and female security enthusiasts together to learn about exploits, hacking, forensics and so on.

They want to build a community of badass women in The Netherlands and hopefully inspire future generations to join keyboards and get the hacking started!
