I always thought What3words was an interesting idea. But I didn’t realize they were going to be keeping such a tight reign on it and that they wanted to force everyone through them?


An open standard seems like would be better off here. Kinda makes me hope there are lots of cached copies of that whatfreewords.org/whatfreewords-go package out there. Of course for the python and js ones too

@RocketChat @nebunez your work with godot in the game jam kinda inspired me to give it a shot and use godot :)

This looked too much like a game to not become at least playable!


Quick little side project with a couple of rocketeers using @godotengine

It all started in 2015 with the dream of creating the largest chat platform in the world. 🌎 Today, we reached an important milestone in @RocketChat's history: we are now 1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ rocketeers! 🚀

Whew, what a jam! I managed to complete my first jam as a solo programmer, artist, and musician (with the help of a talented story writer), and still was able to compose music for my regular game jam team. Check out the games here:

Lack of understanding it was! 🙂 Looks like golang json package maps numbers to float64 by default.

This morning had a really cool session where some actual Rocket engineers from @BURPG presented to @RocketChat what they are up to. Really cool to see how they integrate technology and Rocket.Chat into their flow!

Downside... now I want to build a Rocket too. 🤔

json.unmarshal casts json numbers to float64 - golang.org/pkg/encoding/json/#

To unmarshal JSON into an interface value, Unmarshal stores one of these in the interface value:

bool, for JSON booleans
float64, for JSON numbers
string, for JSON strings
[]interface{}, for JSON arrays
map[string]interface{}, for JSON objects
nil for JSON null

Fellow gophers I have a mystery or lack of understanding.. because of an external system (javascript) randomly sending a bool instead of int I’ve been forced to an interface.

But for some reason when trying to cast the interface to int.. it’s a float?

A new toy! I didn’t realize how affordable 3D printers had gotten. And how good even the cheaper ones had gotten.

Many prints and lots of fun in store

Super cool idea!

Hello world! I want to share with you a device I made, its name is "Yayagram", a machine that helps our beloved elders to keep communicating with their grandchildren . How? Let me open a thread to give you all the details of this contraption.

Cool thread about the tech stack behind simple. For a monorepo a surprising number of services

RIP @simple. Here's a walk down memory lane. The fintech technology edition...

Grafana switched to AGPL and now so did Minio. Is this the new “fad”? Why the changing?


I can’t find any sort of announcement or PR for minio with any sort of explaination just a direct commit to master. 😬

Ah feels nice to open source a tool / library we have used internally for a while. Even if no one uses it. At least its now out here. github.com/RocketChat/filestor

Decided to do some gaming this evening. I miss the Nintendo 64, PlayStation 1 & 2 days with no “installation step”. This is basically a limited computer now

Oh also I forgot to mention what opensnitch was. It's similar to Little Snitch on Macs, but for Linux. It tracks outgoing network connections and throws up prompts so you can allow/deny them. github.com/evilsocket/opensnit
