"The really important kind of freedom involves attention and awareness and discipline and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them over and over in myriad petty, unsexy ways every day."

My thoughts exactly: "I remember us joking about how the data ecosystem was the wild west of well marketed products that were just repackaged incremental improvements"

Excited to watch @meroxadata. They've got some smart folks working on seemingly simple but actually really hard problems focused on streaming data and developer experience.

The notion that future is a commons, and one that is best cared for in the present is both fantastically thrilling but also nerve wracking.

Stewardship of the future is one of those things that’s non-deferrable.

You carry the yoke, now, today. You build it now, today.

RT @tommorris
If any person behaved like an appβ€”rifled through your address book, fitted a tracking device to your car, obsessively logged what books and TV shows you watched, and wanted to disturb you at any moment of the day or nightβ€”you’d throw them out of your house and call the police.

People or companies who set password requirements:

Why don't you count spaces as special characters? I often use a phrase for passwords that I need to memorize and you force me to slap on a . or ? or ! that make it harder for me to remember. πŸ€”

I'm excited to be joining this panel discussion alongside some Dev Rel folks I have quite a lot of respect for, @alispivak and @i_am_daniele

Come listen in!
RT @SlashDataHQ
Industry panel: From tactics to strategy
@andreascon will host the panel, joined by @alispivak,
@i_am_daniele and @crc.
They will be sharing their experience and views at the Future Developer Summit Episode 1.
Watch live and bring your questions!

To all women--especially those close to me--I appreciate you immensely and will keep fighting for your right to equality in all aspects of life.

.@KitemakerHQ looks like Trello, Slack, and Google Wave (RIP) had a beautiful love child!

We need better tools to manage the software dev process. The current loose or non-existent coupling b/t source control, proj management, and team communication is inefficient & demotivating

I have been hunted on @ProductHunt today! πŸš€πŸ₯³

Super happy for any support or feedback:

RT @dacort
Also probably why my next company I start will be a little different. I don’t care about taking over the world...I just want to make people happy and build stuff to make their lives easier. Not much of a pitch deck tho. πŸ˜‚

1. Hilarious: connecting @SHO_Dexter to programming
2. Creepy: see ☝️
3. Awesome!: healthy to keep track of and periodically remind yourself of personal achievements!
RT @jnunemaker
🩸 I mean yes, I have a folder named "Dexter" where I collect πŸ“‰ app perf improvements I've helped with.

That's not weird. Everyone does, right?

And sometimes you too open the vent and πŸ‘€ at them for a bit. You know, to remember the good days...

RT @jnunemaker
πŸ“‰ This morning I took a few minutes to swap @speakerdeck from @heroku 2X dynos to Perf-L.

I saw immediate improvements (30-50% less ruby time).

If you have a handful or more of 2X dynos, definitely make the switch.

I wrote about leveraging @yarnpkg 2 to manage multiple projects + dependencies from one code base! Check it out on the @heroku blog:

The opposite of "it's like riding a bike" is "it's like programming in bash".

A phrase which means that no matter how many times you do something, you will have to re-learn it every single time.
