If you are trying to learn how to improve your programming, testing, or design skills, ask me for a pairing session!

We'll pick one of the open issues on a project and work through it together!

A business that:

A) Extracts wealth through anti-consumer behaviors
B) Hurts workers through unsustainable work conditions
C) Poisons the market through anti-competitive behaviors

Is a failure, regardless of profits or wealth.

Which has hurt you the most?

Agh I should clarify it’s a fintech company that must have all staff within the US :/

A client of mine is hiring ~5 remote positions; all of which require 4+ years of production experience across the following specialities:

- Rails
- Security
- Frontend
- DevOps

The team is all very sweet, and ethnically and gender diverse. HMU via DM if you want links!

Boosts welcome!

DM me your name, pronouns, and work URL

a Philadelphia based agency is looking for a remote UI/JavaScript developer

Just a reminder that the US is celebrating "independence" today while still holding Puerto Rico, the (US) Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands as colonies.

i don’t mean for this to sound overly harsh but i’ve lost faith in the fediverse. i think it’s easier to perpetrate harassment here than to prevent it, and so by the law of averages the fediverse will never become a safe place

if something better exists out there i don’t know of it. it’s certainly not the commercialized platforms — those are uniformly garbage

i don’t have specific plans to leave the fediverse. but there was a lot i wanted to do here, and those plans are now mostly on-ice

I love how lots of sites are offering free programming courses that teach people basic web dev and how to do it well, and then employers cry about a lack of talent because they don’t consider knowing how to write a front end and back end in node js / express good enough for employment

Employers just don’t want to make diverse hires, they keep changing the goal posts

If you want to be a July patrón I've decided to extend the last subscription date until tomorrow!!

This is a perfect example of anti-blackness in the fedi.

When actual Black folks talk about their issues, they are harassed abused and shouted down but when white PROGRESSIVES talk about it, they are met with respect, curiosity and reverence because they kinda read some of the material.

The fedi eats this shit up but acts SURPRISED when Black people don't stay here and have nothing but negative things to say about this space.

Okay so the whole *gestures* world stuff has kind of seriously impacted my business and income.

If you know of anyone looking for the following:
- Designing cloud infrastructure
- Writing and updating Terraform around cloud infrastructure
- Solutions architecture, aka why are we building this way
- Building devops processes in teams

Could you put me in touch ? I'd really appreciate it!

Plz boost!

Black people are not a monolith doesn't mean you should pick and choose and only listen to those of us you don't feel challenged by.

I get confronting things you've been complicit with is difficult and uncomfortable. There can be a huge amount of cognitive dissonance that hurts your perception of yourself as a good person.

The resolution to that is to look up how to do better then, start doing that.

I'm probably going to buy a new laptop in 2021; since my 2017 macbook pro is starting to show it's age.

Did a quick price comparison between similarly specced Dell Developer Edition and Macbook Pro 13" and the MBP 13" is ~$60 cheaper out the door.

Can imagine it getting even cheaper with ARM.

I think one of the problems with white leftism is that a lot of us want to have it both ways. We want to use our privilege to help the victims of structural racism, but we don’t want to have to actually give up that privilege. We want to be like the benevolent aristocrat.

I’m officiating a wedding in July! And don’t own a suit :x

Ugh I’m trying to like DND but it is sooo much work. I’m just trying to put the character sheet my DM gave me into an iPad app but all them assume I have a higher degree of competence

RT @jackiehluo
i’ve thought a lot about neutrality in the context of platforms, and the problem isn’t just that neutrality doesn’t exist; it’s that the “neutral” gaze is always refracted through the lens of power. that’s a much stronger statement than “everyone has biases.”
