FWIW the book is pretty awesome. Anybody who is trying to learn should pick up gopl.io

I just had some sort of geek

I've started learning Go but I'm struggling a bit wrapping my head around a few concepts and just generally getting back into the game. I haven't really done any serious programming in about 5 years, so I'm just generally rusty.

Anyway, I just remembered that my entire prompt to pick up Go was an interview I heard with Brian Kernighan about the Go book he wrote. Ugh! I must be getting old, his book on C was half decent... 😜

Today Linux Journal shut its doors for good. All staff were laid off and the company is left with no operating funds to continue in any capacity... linuxjournal.com/content/linux

I am excited about the new Ryzen 3000 series processors. It looks like AMD is finally giving Intel the thrashing they have needed for a while. Intel might have the clock speed, but AMD has cores and IPCs on their side now. It will only get better from here. Yay for competition again!

This is my first toot! I'm a consultant and developer working with Kubernetes and Golang. I've been a part of the K8S community for a few years and have rrecently started serving on it's release team. I'm interested in learning more about machine learning and chaos engineering.

@Extarys Don't worry about those random articles. Protonmail is "different" and it breaks users sense of what usability in email is.

They've take a system where you could use any application to (basically) only the web interface.
They've prioritise security rather than complete usuability. They may have suspended peoples accounts because of legal action, but they certainly cant hand over any data because its all seriously encrypted.

> Years ago, Mark Zuckerberg made it clear that he doesn’t think is a business. “In a lot of ways, Facebook is more like a government than a traditional company,” said Mr. Zuckerberg. “We’re really setting policies.” He has acted consistently as a would-be sovereign power. For example, he is attempting to set up a Supreme Court-style independent tribunal to handle content moderation. And now he is setting up a global currency.

I applaud all the fediverse instance admins and developers who are taking a clear stand against fascism. Keep it up, and don't let the "neutral" crowd get to you.

Finally summer feels like it's jut around the corner!

Hi there! I’m from the US, and love Overwatch. When I’m not playing that or dying in school, I mess around with music production, and of course, FOSS. I’m trying to get into linux, and also learning how to re-HTML Firefox. I speak HTML and CSS, though not fluently.

Doing my toot! I'm @ToTheFarWest and I'm an Israeli high school student. I've been using Linux on my main system for 5 years now and I'm trying to replace garbage proprietary software with FOSS. Send recommendations!

@gabriel I deactivated my Reddit account some weeks ago and Google thought it was funny to close G+ so I'm done with that too (well almost). I stumbled upon Mastodon and began to like the Fediverse. So much even that I find myself a lot here.

I guess I'm also bored.

FWIW, I'm going to start to throw some old projects on GitHub at gitlab.com/gmobrien
