Imagine a world without opensource, and the only operating system that exists is Windows.

@cwebber back in '06 I was at a big LAN. At one point they brought up some volunteers to a stage and let them compete in a quiz-like competition. One of the challenges was "imitate the sound a modem makes when dialing up."

That's the first time I ever felt old.

Two years ago I have started to write unit tests because I was so sick of my colleagues messing up my work when they did changes to it. I have started to do test driven development this year. And I absolutely ❤️ it. It influences the creative process of writing complex programs in the most simple way very positively
