Little story about biases in technologies. Before I joined @wavesplatform, I thought that #scala is a very complex, non-obvious and little supported programming language, there is too much magic and you can draw ascii emojis with special characters in your code.
I heard and read a lot about troubles with #scala, and it looked reasonable. But as I dived in it (thanks to @wavesplatform deva and scala courses by @BinaryDistrict), I began to realize that these "troubles" are only my (and people in my bubble) biases.
In fact, scala is like any other popular languages with its own advantages and disadvantages. Same like #Java, #Javascript, #TypeScript, #Python in which I wrote before.

@DigitalExeter @TechExeter @RezcommTech @GreyMatter_News @thatbberg I will make the deck available next week (added to my Eisenhower Matrix as important not urgent 😉), but here are the 5 habits that help refocus/rebalance work and private life:
@DigitalExeter @TechExeter @RezcommTech @GreyMatter_News @thatbberg 1. Be Five Minutes Early
2. Concentrate on the 3 Most Important Tasks Each Day
3. Use the Eisenhower Matrix (to figure out importance and urgency)
4. Batch Similar Tasks
5. When Stuck, go for Quick Wins

I’ve had a lovely few days of doing NOTHING work related! I hope you have had some relaxation too.

BUT I do want to tell you about the “full stack” requirements of this AWESOME job that you should apply for to work with me & @AutisticaUK at @turinginst!

turing.ac.uk/work-turing/re…
Here are some screen grabs from the job ad that talk about what you need.... the essential requirements.
I was nervous writing this ad. It’s asking for A LOT to have someone join an academic project for a salary of between £34,000 and £40,000 if they can do ALL the #FullStack development! There are lots of jobs that would pay you a lot more!!

This year for #merryCSSmas I'll be covering some of the most requested styling features and how they can be used with CSS. This will be a month-long series showing ways that simple, valid CSS, and simple JavaScript functions can work together to style anything you can imagine!
Dec 1: Parent Selector 🎄🎁 Though CSS doesn't have a :parent selector, you can create your own with a small JavaScript function and use a selector like [--parent] in your CSS stylesheets today!

demo: codepen.io/tomhodgins/pen…
code: npmjs.com/package/jsincs…

#css #javascript Supporting your own parent selector in CSS with [--parent]
Dec 2: The :has() Selector ⭐️✨ Even though this selector has been specced in CSS for years, no browsers support it yet. Thankfully it's easy for us to support with a selector like [--has] in our CSS

✨🧠 The ecosystem that has grown up around @TensorFlow in the last few years blows my mind. There's just so much functionality, compared to some of the other, newer frameworks.

👉Consider this an ever-expanding thread for me to take notes + wrap my brain around products. Ready?
1) @TensorFlow Extended (TFX)

It's no secret that I 💕 #TFX and all of its tooling for deploying machine learning models into production. If you care about keeping your models up-to-date and monitoring them, you should check out the product + its paper.

tensorflow.org/tfx/?hl=zh-cn
2) @TensorFlow Hub

If you want to train your model on a small data set, or improve generalization, you'll need to use something called transfer learning. #TFHub modules make it easy—and are available in an #OSS marketplace: tfhub.dev.

0/ A plethora of #crypto- and #blockchain-related events happening within the past 24 hours!

Below, a thread I've put together to help you keep track of it all. May it serve you well.
1/ 🌉 @POANetwork [ $POA ] announced the ERC20-to-ERC20 TokenBridge!

Now, projects can leverage separate #Ethereum-based networks to communicate with one another through the transformation of #ERC20 tokens. #Blockchain interoperability growing strong! medium.com/poa-network/in…
2/ 🚢 The @EthexMarket team shipped its Ethex Trade Wallet, a unique native mobile #dApp that features hassle-free #ether and #ERC20 token trading. Compliments their existing #Ethex browser dApp nicely! medium.com/ethex-market/i…

Heya! This thread is going to be a mini-review of the @Surface Go for development purposes. #nodejs #javascript
The Surface Go is a 400 gram Surface device with a 64 bit Intel CPU, and Windows 10.
TLDR: I'm VERY happy. 😊

Here is my lovely website! csclub.co #madewithbulma
My needs are simple while choosing #CSS framework:
No #JavaSript because I don't mind writing in #JS for the things I need.
I came across Skeleton (getskeleton.com) when I was looking for CSS #Framework, which was not included JS.
I used to like #Skeleton by @dhg, it's true that it is dead simple #responsive #boilerplate. Skeleton is truly #mobile-first. Not only in terms of mobile web experience but also the code is written in CSS.

#MagicLeap One hardcore engineer review-preview

- Meshing + tracking is great, do _not_ need to please it
- Very cool to see the virtual world clipped by real!
- World-aware content is the killer feature, the tech nailed it
- World mesh persists
- Great suspend/resume
1/
- Lumin runtime + Lumin SDK immersive was a great technical direction
- Controller tracking is surprisingly good 6DOF, in or out of view
- Hands tracking is fast
- Opacity is a total NON-issue, not even top 10
- At one point I thought my wall had a hole in it
2/
- Surround audio is surprisingly great, no headphones needed
- FOV is a little annoying at first, but you don't notice after a while
- Clip planes are too close
- No pixels, feels higher res than Vive despite FOV
- You can see a bit of prisming, but aesthetic feels right
3/

This just reoccured to me for the nth time, but I really wish browsers would just pass along the layout engines own cached values with Scroll/Resize events, like: scrollPosition[x,y], document[w,h], window[w,h] /cc @ietf @w3c @csswg @webkit @mozilla @MicrosoftEdge
...heck, even just a delta[x,y] would be an improvement.

it would make things like parallaxers & scroll position based triggers so much smoother (like at least 2x instantly), since we wouldn't be causing thrashing when we attempt to re-measure these values every 16ms (or sooner)
ultimately, I'd love to see a mechanism for subscribing to high-frequency property value updates. so that we don't need to request measurements for certain element properties in tight loops. but rather, could just receive them in a callback

A function that produces a scribble.
#generative #code #javascript
So many of my sketches begin with the same function: producing a uniform distribution of values along an array, between [0..1] range. Here's how it looks in JavaScript.

I'm calling it "arcs" (for arc lengths) but perhaps there is a proper name for this sort of thing?
I use this for all sorts of things, like generating an N-sided polygon:

🙋Well Actually!🙋

All of Office 365 is (almost finished) being completely rewritten in this little scripting language called #JavaScript.

And Skype
And Microsoft Teams
And @Code
And all of @MSEdgeDev Debug Protocol (instead of C++)

nbd
Also,

C++ is RFCs for adopting JavaScript's module system because it's so damn good for static analysis. 😍🔥😍🔥

cc @jfbastien please make me look stupid if I'm wrong
And in case you were wondering. This is the goal and beauty. (At least the pieces I can talk about 😏)

Inspired by @patio11 @RachelTobac @HydeNS33k @holman @sehurlburt here is a list "Quick Things Many People Find Too Obvious To Have Told You Already" aka "Things I wish someone had told me earlier"
I've often heard that #DevOps is all about #empathy and I agree.

As an operations person, the most helpful empathetic developers I ever saw were the ones that were told: "20% of your bonus depends on a rating of you from the Operations people"
I didn't believe this for a long time but you can 100% start a blog, write interesting posts and get people to pay you money to tell you more about what's in those blog posts.

Put another way: there are videos of people putting together Duplo on YouTube with MILLIONS of views.

Hyperapp 2.0 is coming! Unwired actions, effects as data, built-in dynamic import support, new subscriptions API, middleware and few more. github.com/hyperapp/hyper… #javascript #hyperapp
Let's break this down. "Unwired actions" is just a fancy name for what really is a profound change in the actions API.
In HA 1.0 you create an object with functions (actions), pass it to the app() call, then HA traverses the object and creates a new function for each action with "special" logic that knows how to update the global state and redraw your view.

Ejecting react-create-app shows just how horribly and hoplessly complicated #Javascript infrastructure has become
I mean, besides the sheer number of moving parts, a third of configuration is about fighting bugs and behaviour in another third
Literally half of the code is "why the EFF isn't this default behaviour?"
