Unsurprinsignly that coding assessment involving a whole bunch of techs I had never even heard before Monday didn't go so well, the humain brain has a limited capacity for learning it seems.

So in the past couple days I've soaked as much as I can from the docs of:
- VSCode
- TypeScript
- RequireJS
- DurandalJS
- KnockoutJS

Current status: my brain is a murky puddle and everything is mixed up. Expect me to write PHP code when they ask for a Knockout view.

So, basically by Friday morning I must have learned:
- VSCode
- TypeScript
- DurandalJS
- KnockoutJS

I am mostly a backend dev.

What is this "comfort zone" I keep hearing people talk about?

Congratulations to Katie Bouman to whom we owe the first photograph of a black hole ever. Not seeing her name circulate nearly enough in the press.

Amazing work. And here’s to more women in science (getting their credit and being remembered in history) 💥🔥☄️

Maybe I should boot up my Windows PC and install any FLOSS just to keep it balanced.

Did I just install some Microsoft software on a Linux machine?

"How I Eat For Free in NYC Using Python, Automation, Artificial Intelligence, and Instagram" by Chris Buetti medium.com/@chrisbuetti/how-i-

This is pretty brilliant, but at what point does social media become full of bots trying to learn from other bots? If it's this easy to game Instagram, then I can't imagine that this technique will work for forever. Kudos to the author for sharing it though.

So I've finally bought an Android phone after many years of using Firefox OS, and this means I again have a terminal on my phone.

<insert Hackerman meme here>

(of course this is only to SSH into my server and grab back my IRC session; what did you expect, real work?)

Congratulations LinkedIn, your daily fake notifications are paying off: out of four former coworkers I've contacted only one replied through LinkedIn, the other three had to be contacted through some other channel.
