If you're a developer and not an english native speaker, which language do you use for your development tools?

Please don't answer if you're a native english speaker, not to bias the results. Boosts appreciated :)

costs of developing and training models: arxiv.org/abs/1906.02243 - choice of algo and training time are non-negligible. One model in particular has a carbon cost roughly equivalent to the lifetime of five cars!

That and lack of examples. Please give me some examples for most common use cases so I can make copy-pasta and be on my way.

Documentation pet peeve: the word "obviously." Like, the whole reason I'm looking at your documentation is because it's *not* obvious.

Anyone here have experience with / ? Very close to putting in an order, assuming that there will be enough keys for general everyday use...

the big question I have for software is "who benefits"/"why". Not that I mind programming for its own sake (its tons of fun), but we have to consciously interrogate who the software being created serves.

I think there's growing interest in that area of research.

Started learning Rust. Hope it's something I can keep up, it seems extremely useful and it's really fun. No real projects just yet, but thinking of Pure Data externals and a standalone spectrogram/oscilloscope for jack (or portaudio) as learning projects. Baby steps though, I shouldn't really have time for any of this...

Not dead, still lurking. Working on a new vv quiet sound thing, an extensible open source granular synth for pd, and other projects, duties, trepidations, ephemera.

Just discovered a collection of beautiful, free open fonts here - dotcolon.net/ (god I sound like a bot -- I swear I just like these fonts!)

Finally got the Android 10 update and the first app to trigger the background location notification was Signal

So warm cocktails are delicious. Made a spiced simple syrup (b/c no bitters atm) paired w/ good spiced scotch & twist of orange and it's just amazing.

Holy smokes I just changed hardware settings on my nanokontrol2 midi device with the windows tool in wine โ€“ totally expecting it to fail โ€“ and it "just worked"! Thank you devs!

By way of , here's some research I'm doing that crossed paths with artifacts in the stock high-pass filter, hip~. (anyone wiser than me is invited to clue me in on where these might come from!)
