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.

Since I started looking into , I realized it's built on top of many existing technologies I didn't know much about. Check out some basic concepts I'd recommend getting familiar with before learning it: noeldemartin.com/tasks/impleme

I enjoyed this talk by Rizqi Djamaluddin, where he goes into why data privacy is important and how we should be handling it: "Fundamentally Flawed: Privacy, People and the Age of Data" youtube.com/watch?v=Ucz0UFaYuv

Interesting, an open letter from DHH (Basecamp CTO) to Jeff Bezos (he was an early imvestor) m.signalvnoise.com/dear-jeff-a

Yesterday I published a new blog post talking about Open Productivity, a new approach I'll be taking on how I communicate my work: noeldemartin.com/blog/open-pro

you can use `array_filter` in PHP without providing the filter callback, and it will get rid of all the falsy values. Sweet! I've written logic for this myself many times, so I'll definitely start using this instead.

I guess if I want to charge it as fast as possible, I can always apply the ultimate "battery saving mode": turning it off.

I wonder why my phone doesn't allow activating "battery saving mode" when charging. Wouldn't it charge faster?

Mastodon is awesome, I just favorited a bot's toot, I'm not sure I have ever done that in the birdsite.

In case you're wondering, it was @alt_text

I just found out the app I use to listen podcasts has a "hidden" stats page. And I've realized how much time I spend listening to them. I enjoy them, but I consume them mostly when I cannot do anything else like reading or programming (basically exercise/commuting). Bittersweet.

I'm sure if I eliminated my commute there are some I would still keep listening thou :D.

There are two kinds of developers: the ones who rely on logging output and the ones who use a debugger.

I fall on the first category, but today I had to use a debugger (I needed to find a memory leak).

It was a good experience, so be sure to combine both to get the best of both worlds!

about this awesome website: bundlephobia.com/ Check how much adding that sweet node package will cost you (file size/download speed).

Please boost if it’s okay to befriend you, ask questions, ask for advice, rant, vent, let something off your chest, or just have a nice chat.

I just noticed my tracker blocker had to block Twitter SDK and Google Analytics from an official website from my government where I had to submit official documentation... How far can this go? We all now the next inevitable step is having them in our home.

Well after 5 years my Nexus 7 tablet has decided to stop working (can't install new apps). This after years of not even getting security updates. Disappointing that this happens when the device is perfectly fine. So I guess this is a good opportunity to install . If I'm happy with the experience, I'll probably do the same with my phone, another device working perfectly fine that hasn't got security updates for years.

@daibarnes What you mention in the podcast about "just entertainment" is interesting. I think the same piece of content, depending how the target receives it, can be just entertainment or a meaningful experience. Like most things the value is in the eyes of the beholder. One good example of the opposite is how deep topics like philosophy are taught in schools and many students are bored out of their minds.
