Nice to see lawsuits - Hilton ripped me off at @MicroConf this year and was absolutely unrepentant when I caught it. As much as I love MC, it made me leery of returning. Scam me once... https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/business/marriott-hilton-lawsuit-resort-fees.html

If you enjoyed last year's GAO report on IRS's tech debt (https://www.gao.gov/assets/700/693081.pdf) here's an update: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-utl/irs_2019_integrated_modernization_business_plan.pdf Master File started in 1960! (https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-soi/60dbfullar.pdf p23) This is what success can look like.
(Note: you don't have to "be passionate" or do this to work in programming. I happen to have endless curiosity for it and can indulge it. You do you.)
This is basically my approach to programming. Prob ~1 book a month, ~3 talks/week, ~7 articles/day since 2001, then books only for the 10 prior years. No special aptitude, just lots of time and practice. https://medium.com/@byrnehobart/the-startling-convexity-of-expertise-5058e90a6c19
By popular acclaim, the north side Code and Coffee is moving to Rewired Cafe from now on. We'll be next to the Berwyn Red Line stop tomorrow morning starting at 7. Work on your side project, chat, do or don't drink coffee. :) https://push.cx/code-and-coffee
I should've posted earlier - today's #CodeandCoffee will be at Rewired Cafe Edgewater, 1107 W Berwyn Ave. I have a stack of cards for free drinks and snacks. Starting 7 AM as usual. See you there!

Great blogpost by @jakob ... and great hacking over the course of this summer, too!
How long is this going to last? It's been three hours and I just picked up an almond the size of an ottoman with my frankenstein hands. It's like the world is made out of Duplo blocks.
