Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

Hi #development Twitter & #GCDigital. I'm thinking of creating a gentle #Python-based learning session on how applications work for senior executives. I need your help. Yellow sign -
My hypothesis == w/ hands-on practice of some simple programming fundamentals, senior folks can better understand modern applications, how they are developed & work + the value of #opensource. Maybe some agile.
This, in turn, leads to understanding the art of the possible, better questions on work being done, potentially practical support for building broader #programming & #DataScience capacity in their organizations & more open access to #opensource tools.

Johann Choux, Head of our Division responsible for equity investments in #startups and venture capital funds, is speaking at #AfroBytes2019. A great opportunity to explain how we work and to list some of the main criteria for our investments: impact and sustainability #AfroBytes
Today we have a portfolio of 12 investments and we are committed to investing in around 3/4 funds and 3/4 startups per year. But our support goes beyong VC, we also support local banks, which can lend to startups thanks to the guarantees we provide, and the ecosystem with @AFD_en
We want to invest more in North Africa and francophone Africa in the future, because as a #development finance institution, it is our mission to catalyse investments, and those 2 areas are very underpenetrated in terms of start-up investments. #Afrobytes

@fhgferreira @wb_research @WBG_Poverty (1/N) Response to @fghferreira's fourth point on the @worldbank's new work on global poverty estimates. The addition of a new multidimensional poverty measure that *includes* consumption/income poverty is a welcome step & can give rise to real additional insights....
@fhgferreira @wb_research @WBG_Poverty @WorldBank (2/N) The finding that #income #poverty is only imperfectly related to the presence of deprivations is important both in terms of evaluation and in directing policies. It is also helpful that one of the measures they are using is sensitive to overlaps between deprivations and....
@fhgferreira @wb_research @WBG_Poverty @WorldBank (3/n) ...does not merely count aggregate deprivations without concern for their correlation (as some well-known other measures do). But with any multidimensional measures the devil is in the details regarding how they are defined...

@fhgferreira (1/n) Response to @fghferreira's point of the day: It is a start that @WorldBank is now apparently emphasizing, after our debate, the idea I have long appealed to when criticizing the lack of meaning of its existing money-metric int'l poverty line & calling for an alternative:..
@fhgferreira @WorldBank (2/n) ...Amartya Sen's injunction that poverty should be conceptualized as 'absolute in the space of capabilities and relative in the space of commodities'. However, the approach being implemented by the Bank is mechanical and therefore wholly inadequate...
@fhgferreira @WorldBank (3/n)...A 'hybrid of absolute and relative' is not absolute in the required sense ('absolute in the space of capabilities'). It is merely muddled. First, the poverty line that is being referred to as 'absolute' does not, as I argued in our debate, have a convincing meaning...

@BloombergQuint Yet another superficial analysis on #JammuKashmir. Experts who make the glib argument that people are frustrated and therefore taking to violence have not bothered to study any data. Here are some numbers (incl RBI data!) - how #JammuKashmir compares with the rest of India.
@BloombergQuint 1) India has far higher social spending in #JammuKashmir than rest of the country. Here are the RBI data on per capita spending on #health #education and overall #Development spending.
@BloombergQuint 2) #JammuKashmir has far more health infrastructure than rest of the country. This also translates into significantly better health outcomes as measured by indicators such as infant mortality and life expectancy. #KnowIndia

Bir yazılım geliştiricinin bilmesi gerekenlerle ilgili 15 maddelik flood geliyor.. Mümkün olduğunca fazla keywordü bir araya toplamaya çalıştım.
Hadi Başlıyoruz!

#Developer #Software #Java #code #kod #yazılım #development #computer #bilgisayar #tool #PC #IT #web #tech #data
1-Temel veri yapıları (linkedList, map, tree vb) ve temel algoritmalar (sıralama, arama vb)

Sıfırdan kodlama ihtiyacınız büyük ihtimalle hiç olmayacak. Ancak ihtiyaç anında doğru yerde doğrusunu seçebilmek için o veri yapısının veya algoritmanın nasıl çalıştığını bilmeniz şart
2- Network Temelleri

OSI Modelini ve 7 katmanı; temel protokolleri(#TCP-IP, TCP-UDP, #HTTP, #FTP), güvenlik protokollerini(#HTTPS, #SFTP, #SSL), monitoring protokolleri(#SNMP, ICMP) bilmekte fayda var. Ayrıca ağ ekipmanlarının görevlerini tanımak ve 7Layer yerlerini bilmek lazım

Thread - fascinating stories of #development in #India from students @azimpremjiuniv. 8 week field projects -sampling of diverse insights from ~160 students across India. #1 - interior forest communities struggling to transition from forest to agricultural livelihoods
#2 - more #displacement of #indigenous communities due to exclusionary #conservation
#3 #displacement of tribal communities due to dams - a sadly common story of loss and misery, and ultimately of lopsided development #8weekfieldprojects @azimpremjiuniv

Its official...the next five years of my life will be spent as Director of a new @UKRI_News @GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub focusing on relationships between #migration #inequality and process of #development across 12 countries ukri.org/news/global-re…
Migration between countries in Global South accounts for nearly half of all international migration, 70% in some places, contributing to delivery of #SDGs by creating opportunities for work and the transfer of resources, knowledge and skills. But...
...as @Tanjabastia and others have shown, there is a relationship between #migration and #inequality. Benefits of #SouthSouthmigration are undermined by inequalities in migration opportunities and by limited and unequal access to rights for migrants and families. Meanwhile...

The demand for #BogibeelBridge started in early 1960s. Even the Chinese aggression couldn't wake successive #Congress govts to move an inch towards realising people's dream of a much needed bridge.
People struggled for decades, students fought with successive Congress govts but they wont blink. Ultimately, it took the might of #AssamAgitation to take note of #BogibeelBridge demand.
1985: #Assam Accord was signed whereby #BogibeelBridge was committed by #Congress government led by then Prime Minister late #RajivGandhi. A demand - among many others - that was acknowledged after martyrdom of 855 young students of #Assam

Like most IT people I love tools. And tools are absolutely vital to #Agile, esp. #automation of #development & #delivery. But when it comes to managing teams & processes, do #tools and #Agile always mix? Maybe not…
1. Software developers like #tools. No, they adore tools. They seem the most natural way to solve a problem, and they are familiar territory that any #delivery team is more than happy to enter. #Agile
2. But #tools provide little support for the *content* of most #Agile delivery tasks, from defining Product Vision to conducting Daily Stand-Up Meetings. They do support day-to-day workflow, reporting and recording, but at that level are often easily replaced by manual #methods.

THREAD-It took me a few days to reflect on what I think of the zero draft of #globalcompactmigration; having been so close to the process and substance for the last few months, my first thought is that there is a lot to take in! And that's good: we need ambition (1) #formigration
And that was not a given;many commentators say that they are 'surprised not to be disappointed'-as they usually are.Stakes are high too,with US withdrawal, Hungary on the verge and may European states concerned that #UNSG report unbalanced #formigration #globalcompactmigration(2)
There is a lot to like in 22 (!) objectives:concrete proposals on labour and skills,like #Globaskillspartnership promoted by @m_clem and on access to #socialprotection & portability of #socialsecurity;on vulnerability and missing migrants #formigration #globalcompactmigration (3)

Just got to Davos. Ready to fill the leadership vacuum with big ideas. My focus will be on privilege and women. Only going to #womanels #methree. Also, my alligator-skin boots got snow on them, anyone have a blow drier or an FT I can use to dry them off?
Thread 1/n: Small ideas feel big when I'm in my Gulfstream, so here it goes: We have to innovate on innovation. The 7th industrial revolution disrupts AND displaces. Artificial intelligence and blockchain can only solve resurgent populism with #compassion.
2/n We elites are critical to making this debate glocalized. Thought leadership also involves thought stewardship. Communities form the core of our economies. Blue collar workers must be re-conceived as #newcollar workers. Code is key.

#Decolonising #Development must be approached against a dual background of (a) optimistic anticolonial pushbacks like #RhodesMustFall & (b) renewed, frantic & violent attempts to hold on to the 'white man's world' - @o_rutazibwa opens the last #SussexDev lecture of 2017 @IDS_UK
@o_rutazibwa @IDS_UK The 'bathwater' here is #development as a system (ideologies, institutions, practices) which we may need to get rid of; we need to fight the desire to hold on to 'development studies' even if it has given us our professional identities (and paychecks) @o_rutazibwa #SussexDev
@o_rutazibwa @IDS_UK The 'baby' in this story is the ideas, desires and energy - global #justice, #solidarity, #reparations - righting the past and present wrongs that persist 'after' colonialism (the end of which was never quite the rupture we sometimes imagine) - @o_rutazibwa #SussexDev
