Pinned toot

YES! After an hour trying to figure out a learning path to change career aiming to a starting DevOps job, I found this treasure of article!

I'm thinking about start looking for online resources related to the links the author gives (in case those links are not good or too expensive or something)

What do you think about that path?

This is my very first toot. I'm really convinced that the future of social media will be descentralized 😍

Is there any Atom user here? How is that you "run the file"? I see that instruction but I can't find anywhere what does it means. I'm trying to customize the HTML autocomplete and I can't find that part anywhere in the documentation D:

So, University of Minnesota is completely banned from Linux development.

They deserve that.

What kind of people compose the UMN IRB to allow this kind of nonsense?

I totally agree with the analogy of Jered Floyd.

Well, I made a little bash script that generates all the necessary favicons for a website and their necessary html tags (using Inkscape).

Nothing fancy, though. And I'm just starting to learn how to code. So I'm kind of proud. And saved me a lot of time for a couple of websites I'm making.

(also, my first github mini-project πŸ–€)

Hey everyone!

Just a quick question: is LinkedIn big in the web development or programming area?

At least in the Spanish speaking community it is, but I have no idea about the English speaking world there

DeepL is such a great alternative to Google Translate and they just added support for 13 new European languages! πŸ‘

I hope Firefox and Brave work on an official integration with DeepL as there is a real need for this.

WTF Google Drive? I had 10.2 GB used in my account. I downloaded all my pictures in Google Photos, deleted them from my account (even from the trash bin), and now it says that I have 10.8 GB in use.

And I re-read it like ten times to make sure it said "in use" and not "free", and yes, now there are more space in use after deleting like 6 GB of pictures. WTF.

Wouldn't be interesting to create a clone of the old MSN Messenger, but using something like XMPP? The MSN cloning part would be to attract lots of users out of nostalgia, and therefore bringing lots of users to the FOSS world without having to try to convince them of anything before πŸ€”

And by clone, I mean something that looks exactly the same (aMSN was pretty ugly if you ask me).

OMFG I just won a full scholarship for a Fullstack JavaScrip Bootcamp!

You can't even start to imagine how happy I am! Finally I will leave this disgusting Marketing/Advertising industry that I've been hating for the last decade! <3

This thing about working on a static website through Git is so fun. I don't know exactly why, it just feels fun to do πŸ˜…

Already learning how to use Hugo. That way I'm training what I'm learning about HTML and CSS, and I can have a new blog at the same time. It's actually kind of fun writing all by yourself πŸ˜„

What a ride. I keep reading and listening to more people about different career paths and the more I learn, the more my path keeps updating. Now I'm learning JS, HTML/CSS, and GIT (soon: React); so, yes, front-end web development will be. I don't have any CS background so it will be very convenient as a starting point.

And today I invented my first :javascript: function :) (it's a dice roller). And I feel happy.

I just LOVE the new two-level tabs system on Vivaldi D:

What platform would you recommend me to post articles? In the style of a personal journal about my career path. Seems that Medium is pretty popular πŸ€”

WTH, I just found out that lots of YouTubers hate the game Clive Barker's Jericho. What?

I don't know if it's because I'm a huge Clive Barker's books fan or maybe because I'm not a hardcore FPS player, but for me that was one of the best FPS I ever played. One guy made a review saying that the plot of the game (its strongest point if you ask me) makes not sense because Christianity never mixed with magic... What?

Whatever. Just... Let people enjoy things.

Just started to learn Python a few days ago. Actually, just started learning programming. Gotta' say, this is kind of fun. I feel utterly stupid at some points, but I know that it's just about practice and developing the skill.

I decided to make use of every single hour I have during this year meanwhile I wait for the vaccine before moving to another country.

My learning goals for the following weeks/months:
- LPIC-1
- Bash scripting
- Python
- Improving my German

Wish me luck πŸ˜…

So, continuing with my mission on becoming a DevOps from scratch. I've been studying for LPIC-1, learning Bash scripting and Python...

And now I found this video. It looks very interesting! What do you think about it, guys? Seems like good selection of tools to add to my career path, aren't they?

Does anyone knows why this message appears in Fedilab? I don't know what that tab is though... Fediverse maybe? πŸ€”

Hey! Can anyone recommend me an adroid app for Pixelfed?

I tried Fedilab but it doesn't allow me to sign in (after I enter my password it loads the login screen again in an endless loop and doesn't even ask me for the 2FA)

Google Analytics is the largest and one of the worst trackers. It's used even on sites that promote privacy, GNU/Linux, etc.

There are some free (as in freedom) and privacy-friendly alternatives:
