Switching from twitter, so here's a(n) #introduction
Hi! I'm a high school student from Chicago. Right now I spend most of my free time developing tools to give more kids from around the city an opportunity to learn to code. I'm super into good design and improving human interactions, so most of my projects are web-based.
Other things I enjoy: philosophy, electronic music, functional programming, biking.
Hello everyone !
📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴
An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.
It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (https://natrongithub.github.io/)
Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.
Boost very appreciated
Thanks in advance for your contribution !
Does anyone know anything about https://www.ideo.com/? I've never seen a company like it.
@codesections ML is the best paradigm imo for a variety of reasons, but basically the typing makes errors impossible and the functional aspect makes many tasks easier and more maintainable.
I think it's hard for non-students to imagine just how bad textbooks are. This (horror) story comes pretty close: https://www.edutopia.org/textbook-publishing-controversy

I wanted to dislike this, but it's actually really neat.

There's also CLI client that works with local git repos.
What do you use to make music? That's one area where there's a surprisingly small amount of FOSS. I've found plenty of trackers (like SunVox), but those are often limiting and have a steep learning curve.
My friend uses GarageBand + Audacity, which seems like an interesting combo if you're on MacOS.
Electron is not crossplatform Show more
any more than software that runs in a VMWare virtual appliance is crossplatform. It's not even significantly lighter weight than doing that.
Taking your platform with you doesn't make your software crossplatform.
I like Vue, OCaml, and teaching people how to code.
