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.

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.

When you search Google for "Buddhism", the numbered results at the bottom of the page are lotus flowers.


If you are reading this I freaking love you, and I love Mastodon. This is so much fun!

So if anyone is still looking for an instance or you want to help start a community, you can join here!


It's gonna be a pretty wholesome place so if you are interested you can join. If you are already happy where you are at least help me boost so more people know of it :P

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.

Currently trying to learn Golang so if anyone has tips for learning it like a 5 year old that would be great. No Java experience so a lot of it is making my brain hurt. Hoping I can catch a break and it clicks soon.

Took a while but finally made it back to Fosstodon. Been missing it and had to go through some account recovery nightmare of finding passwords but finally made it back. Glad to see new faces have showed up.

Moving on to the second round of interviews for possible developer job. So excited and hoping to nail it. Really want to get this career change over and this is the first step.
