Time to make an #introduction!
My name is Noel and I am a developer with a mission to create work that makes the world a better place.
You can find more about me on my website & blog: https://noeldemartin.com
Looking for a new position that fits my values is tough. I've been thinking about it and I decided to write it down, check it out. Also, let me know if you are aware of an opportunity where I can fit! Mostly looking for a remote fullstack/frontend/backend developer position.
I've started backing Tim Ferriss with a monthly subscription and I couldn't be happier. I've been consuming his content for years, and I'm glad that many are starting to move away from the sponsorship/advertisement model.
I've just published a new blog post! https://noeldemartin.com/blog/real-time-vs-asynchronous-communication
@daibarnes @dajbelshaw listening to the TIDE podcast, I'm wondering about what you mentioned on interview practice. I agree that it's useful, but I dread interviews so much. Not the interviews, but all the "work" related with applying (looking for offers, learning about the company, preparing a cover letter/introduction email, going to the interview if it's in person, etc). What's your opinion on that? Or do you think it's ok to apply without any preparation if it's "just for practice"?
Just watched Alita: Battle Angel Show more
I think the first 3/4 of the movie were quite good, but the last part felt a bit rushed and lacking. The manga is better in my opinion, but this adaptation is still better than Ghost in the Shell, and I'd consider it a good standalone movie. A step in the right direction for Hollywood on manga/anime adaptations.
Wow, listening to Mozilla's IRL podcast I just found out that Pokemon Go is also surveillance capitalism, because they have partnerships with companies such as McDonald's that'll pay them for bringing customers by placing strategic pokestops 😱 https://irlpodcast.org/season4/episode5/
The #fosdem talk about #solid has been uploaded! Check it out for a neat introduction to what's Solid and what it tries to achieve: https://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/fosdem-video/2019/Janson/solid_web_decentralization.mp4
We've had some months of #GDPR now. Do we know of any case where it's been enforced or punished with fines? Or will it become one of those regulations that people ignore?
I just found out about https://duckduckgo.com/lite and it's awesome :D
Damn, I don't think I can leave the decentralization/privacy room, too many interesting talks #fosdem
Hi dear #fediverse :) I’ll be at #FOSDEM this weekend and I’d love to exchange with as much people I can who are involved in building a better internet for all. Think ActivityPub, federation, self-hosting, Solid, etc. I’m working on a project to help this movement. Please dm me, boost 🙏 @aral @eliotberriot @Framasoft @dada @pierreozoux @yunohost
I just finished rewriting my site about Autonomous Data, which is the application architecture I'll be working with for a while. From now on I'll focus on actually shipping some! https://noeldemartin.github.io/autonomous-data/
Next week I'll be at #FOSDEM, anyone going? I'm still pondering which talks to attend. One I'll visit for sure is the one about Solid! https://fosdem.org/2019/schedule/event/solid_web_decentralization/
Yesterday I was working on migrating my website to Docker, and I decided to use a Docker nginx container as reverse proxy. Instead of using some tool to automate the process I just wrote a couple of bash scripts to have more control. Check them out if you are interested in learning about it: https://github.com/noeldemartin/nginx-agora
@dajbelshaw I don't know if I'm still on time, but Happy Birthday to your daughter :D
#TIL git only tracks the executable part of file permissions, so nothing about users or write/read permissions.
I'm watching a Japanese TV program where they visit Eiichiro Oda's home (the author of the manga One Piece). They've just shown that he has an Alexa 😱 That means Amazon could be listening in on the secrets of One Piece!!
I started reading "Los tónicos de la voluntad" by Santiago Ramón y Cajal. It has been sitting on my shelf for a long time, so it's about time :).
I just completed the first version of my Task Manager using #Solid https://noeldemartin.com/tasks/implementing-a-task-manager-using-solid
