“Business knowledge should be part of a technical career path”
Unfortunately this is not just overlooked, it’s often discouraged. Understanding the value of the systems we build is vital to ensuring we are equipped to decide on their direction.
“Just” learned to code like it’s the easiest thing in the world?
I think @jbaldwin may be confusing a global pandemic with a sabbatical. For a lot of people, they’ll be too busy working, stressing about friends, family and the economy, being a carer, educator etc. https://twitter.com/AIGAeyeondesign/status/1247934646664519680
@JoYo This! Was amazed at how differently my immediate family are interpreting the phrase “social distancing”. Thank you for reminding us that clarity is worth the effort.
Some excellent advice from a former colleague on working remotely. As someone who doesn’t have a dedicate place to work at home, I’m still experimenting with being productive whilst in isolation.

🗞 On the Blog - Dive Through the Layers: or how dive helped me look inside an unusually large Docker image.
New Blog: Conditional Services with Docker Compose - or how you can make use of the dependency tree to do the work for you.
Spent some time this weekend packaging a Django (DRF) application and deploying using GitHub Actions and Docker Compose. The resulting image is 1.2GB once all dependencies are installed. I’m sure I can trim this, but it’s not a great starting point.
Accelerating development is a noble goal, but that’s a lot of bytes for an API. I’m finding myself increasingly supportive of the idea of Mechanical Sympathy that Bill Kennedy promotes within the Go community.
@Gina Congratulations!! That’s not a bad time either. I’m up to 6km at the moment, but I’m chasing that 10km target as that means I could run to work.
