Yesterday I've been packaging a little #Go app and I have two findings to share:
1. Go Modules makes packaging Go pretty easy – also for older Go versions because of vendoring. Of course vendoring causes other problems, but let's not talk about that now.
2. Working with the @opensuse Build Service (OBS) on #Fedora 30 is completely seamless. Everything works just out of the box (dnf install osc). You can test-build locally and then commit everything to OBS. Awesome!
Right now only @opensuse Tumbleweed has a #Clojure package out of the box. But you can also install the same Clojure (and Leiningen) on Leap 15.1.
Everybody dealing with free software should read this. A little history lesson is also included. 😉
I had to read about the cookie foobar we have because of the #GDPR. This page seems to be useful: https://eugdprcompliant.com/cookies-consent-gdpr/
So websites that only have "essential" cookies, that are used to have a working webpage only need a warning that cookies are used. That's good! Annoying, but at least you don't have to have full blown cookie mngmnt in this case. Because there are some frameworks out there, that won't let you disable all cookies… and if you need CSRF tokens, aso, you probably can't disable it.
Reading a book from 2008 about a family of languages that existed for (back then) fifty years and it couldn’t be more relevant to me. #myclojurestatus
And it looks like @salesforce can indeed keep their white vest.
I don't think that you are responsible for everything your users do with your software. But there is no way they didn't know… and they decided for the money and agains the victims!
Do you feel lonely?
When I was 13 I was lonely. I didn't had a single friend. Not in school, not at after school activities.
The only kids my age that I knew were rude, loud and generally nothing like me at all.
They would tease me, beat me, every day.
I wanted someone to talk to, somewhere, anywhere, anybody.
I don't ever want anyone to feel that way. So if you ever need someone to talk to, just chat everyday stuff, or someone to say hi to. You can always write me. Yes you, stranger.
If you have a company and you know that one of your customers is making money with sex trafficking of children. And you are the one enabling that. What would you do? Well, looks like Salesforce decided to take the money and to keep a white vest. 😳
When we grow up and learning how things work, we tend to think it was like this forever. Nice reminder by Barbara Liskov that it wasn't.
What’s going on with all these divs?
The Devil has many faces
Just got this response on Twitter and also wanted to share it here:
