During the talk, John shared some of their programming principles at id software, and I got some of them:
"Programming is a creative art form based in logic. Every programmer is different and will code differently. It's the output that matters." -@firstname.lastname@example.org at #strangeloop
Abusing a DC-DC chip designed for 60 V supply to switch up to 1000 V by putting a cascode transistor in series with its switching node. And this is in the official application note, written by nobody else than the engineer-in-chief...
Unlike computing where undefined, unspecified and implementation-specific hacks are frowned upon, in analog electronics, almost everything is permitted. The only limits are your knowledge and imagination... #electronics
i wish firefox android had an easy way to transfer tabs from private browsing mode to normal browsing mode. currently you have to just copy the link, switch modes, and paste it into a new tab.
i have it set to open links from other apps in private browsing mode, which works for most situations, but sometimes i want to open the link in normal browsing
does any browser on android allow for this?
Random 3 reasons why autistic people are awesome:
1. They are strong (they go through a lot)
2. They have contributed a lot to society.
3. I don't have anything against autistic people because they are humans. Human rights apply to them, too.
There are plenty more but toots are only limited to 500 chars so that sucks
There are a lot of "programming is like..." metaphors that focus on industry. Programming is like a construction project. Programming is like a manufacturing floor.
Those work, as far as they go, when you're trying to have a mental model for how programming produces products in organizations. But it doesn't really capture, in my mind, what programming is like for the individual. And it also kind of excludes a huge number of hobbyist and amateur1 programmers.
Programming is an art and a craft. It's honestly a lot like sewing. Yes, it's often cheaper in the modern world to buy pre-made things -- but it's a valuable skill for everyone to have at some level, even if that level is "I can replace a button". People learn to sew because they want to repair something they love, or made modifications (bam now my skirt has pockets!), or because they find joy in making things, or because they want to make things that don't exist "off the shelf", or...
1: Keep in mind that "amateur" means "one who loves"; it isn't and should never be a criticism
