website made by someone who describes themself as "a dipshit who doesn't know how to use computers" and hosted on a raspberry pi or some random VPS: loads instantly, well designed, easy to navigate

website made by fortune 500 company, with teams of designers, programmers, and servers in 8 countries: takes a full minute to load, layout shifting around the whole time, breaks if you have 1 browser add-on, the page you want can only be accessed via a third party search engine, gets worse every year

I just received a recruiter email saying this 🤣👇

👔 I saw your profile on LinkedIn and I was really impressed by your experience in [add specific field or an achievement that caught your eye].

"A hamster has been trading cryptocurrencies in a cage rigged to automatically buy and sell tokens since June - and it's currently outperforming the S&P 500"

This is funny on many levels.


This is also why I'm trying to learn more networking and system stuff myself.

Having a simple homelab helps a lot 😀

Operations is not Developer IT: Such a good article. As a dev, whole heartedly agree with current madness.

I always trust a QA over my tests and a good sys-admin over Kubernetes/AWS/Serverless

Better interface for SQL databases from FastAPI. This can be huge for FastAPI adoption.
It is powered by Pydantic, so it uses python type hints, and has all the power of SQLAlchemy ❤️

Here are 2 Wolfenstein Youngblood screenshots.
One is running 4K native, and one is upscaled from 1080p to 4K using AMD with Steam Proton.

Can you see any differences?

(Yep, I'm working on a video!)

Delegating outcomes rather than methods is generally I have also followed.

🚀 Alright fedi gang, do your magic. Looking for a junior dev in the UTC+05:00 to UTC+08:00 timezone.

The company is a small biz, and isn't a total dumpster fire as far as treating you goes. I was quite pleasantly surprised, in fact. Fully remote.

Project is ~2 months in and a standard Django thingy.

You'll work with me. Feel free to check my site to get a sense of who I am. Happy to help you throughout your onboarding and beyond. Ask me questions on my XMPP/Telegram.

Please, please, please, don't make things look like links if they're not links! These attractive pink underlined words look like they lead to juicy info about the presentations at this conference, but in reality they aren't even clickable!
