Whoever invented 2 week sprints for Agile and Scrum needs a swift kick in the nuts. Factor in all the meetings for refinement and planning and you effectively lose 3-4 days of the sprint when compiling the hours spent in meetings. 3 week sprints should be the norm.

Been away too long. Been head down focused at work. Been on a new project the last couple months and needed to focus on learning the codebase and the platform. Been fun and have a great team. Hoping to stick around on this a while.

Welcome to Fosstodon. Things are slow at first but as you find people with similar interests and follow them, others will follow you. Create your bio, add an avatar pic and some emojis to your name so others can learn more about you. If you haven't, sending out an introduction listing your interests will help.

Good luck and have fun.

I would like to (dis)prove something my transphobic father said.
#transgender people, did you choose a name that’s a diminutive of or sounds like your deadname?
Preferably boost for a larger sample size.

Struggling today. Not sure exactly what is causing it. Just really emotional for no reason and feeling down. Taking some time to decompress and find the joy again in what I do and trying to figure out if I am doing things how I should be. Just feel really off lately. Hopefully be back to normal soon but honestly not sure what normal is anymore.

Curious how things work here on . Do people write long form content here in threads like you often see on or would it be preferable to share a blog post or both?

Well got pulled at work from learning Golang. Works for me currently as it wasn’t clicking. Going back to studying and outside work learning Vue and getting back to creating things again. Now just to figure out what to build that will be beneficial.

Hi Mastodon! I'm Bracken, in the day I am a coder and the rest of the time I am many things.

My on-topic interests for this instance are #golang #kubernetes #containers #linux #code.. I'm interested in how we can all learn to code better.

Off topic is #running (a lot) #cycling #making #3dprinting #wordle

Is this how to toot? I don't know how to toot.

OK, we've got some traditions here that may be very useful to all of our new arrivals. They are:

where you recommend some of your favorite follows and why,

where you toot pictures of your cat on Saturday


where you toot a screen snapshot from your computer or phone. It can be anything but it is normally your desktop with a neofetch.

Let's have a good showing this weekend to help our new friends out.

Please boost.
