sometimes emotional support is letting me send you 50 memes over the course of an hour and reacting with "lmao", "XD", and "nice" until I feel better

stimming? oh you mean my idle animation?

A few days ago I mentioned that indexing arrays in #JavaScript using square bracket notation is considered bad security practice.

Guess what? Now, accessing object properties using the dot operator is not kosher:

People freely modifying copyright licenses... 🤦🏻‍♀️

Guys, seriously, a license is a legal document. Legal documents are almost like code: you *must* write them with precision and taking the legal framework into account. Most of the modifications I see are well-intended, but open lots of cans of worms...

I'm happy to help with anyone who needs to modify/write a license. IANAL, but I'm Foreign Rights Manager at a publishing house and this stuff is a huge part of my job.

I'm still looking for a #coop in Europe to join as a software developer.

computing was a mistake

anyway here is a reminder that if you are cis and looking for ways you can be a Good Trans Ally, please join me in this endeavor by questioning every single entity behind registration forms that require you to declare m or f. talking points include:
* why do you need this information?
* will you be verifying this with an ID check of some sort, and is that consistent regardless of someone's appearance?
* what options do you provide for someone who cannot answer either m or f?

What is the blogging platform you use right now?

Please help share.

Hi there, here’s a little
I retrained (after years of repairing computers for friends and family), a couple of years ago to be an IT tech. I landed a job, which required me to automate many tasks with PowerShell, and I fell in the automation trap! so, I am currently learning Python. So here I am, to meet like-minded people, to share opinions, projects, virtual beverages…
