Wanted to see me speak at FOSDEM but missed it? Videos are up:
- A Guiler's Year of Racket https://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/fosdem/2019/K.4.201/guileracket.webm (please see also https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guile-devel/2019-02/msg00017.html as a followup)
- ActivityPub Panel https://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/fosdem/2019/UD2.218A/activitypub_panel.webm
@cwebber I really enjoyed the Racket talk.
@dthompson Thanks, I'm glad to hear it. I became worried that maybe it "shook up" the room too much (I think Pjotr said "yes, we were shaken") but the day after we had some really nice conversations reflecting on points raised in the talk about how to keep Guile moving forward. So I think overall that's good.
@cwebber I had heard about that before the video was uploaded, but upon watching it I didn't get shaken. maybe because of the forewarning, I don't know.
@dthompson Whew! I don't really like upsetting people so the more thinking and less upsetting it results in the better!
@cwebber it didn't come across as unintentionally mean to me at all. in some ways it sucks to acknowledge all of the ways in which Guile isn't great, but denial isn't healthy.
@dthompson And I do think it's getting better! Having Guix become Guile's package manager has helped :)
@mikegerwitz Thanks, I really appreciate that feedback :)
@mikegerwitz Yes it was nice that the timing worked out!
Now to document it so that other people can actually test it ;)
