In Brazil this is a common practice by the guy who installs your protection net. How many software engineers would show the same level of confidence towards their code? 😬 Like @khenidak says, test until boredom replaces fear twitter.com/holdmyale/stat…
Germany lowers the VAT from 19% to 16% for 6 months (Corona relief). Can we have a moment of silence for all the dev teams having to readjust their sprint plannings to make this work 😬😀
By the end of the decade JSON parsing alone is going to account for 0.5C of temperature rise.

Microservices: "We solved DLL hell by wrapping every binary with HTTP" Don't at me
I keep hearing about "DevOps" teams. What's that? All Agile processes or frameworks I know call for cross-functional teams that have all the skills necessary to get an idea into your customers hands. Splitting off things like deployment or ops slows you down w/ unnecessary gates.

1/ Last night, I spent some quality time with the Apple docs on the new contact tracing protocol and APIs they and Google are preparing. I'm quite optimistic about this effort. Here's why.

I spoke to an old therapist friend today, and finally understood why everyone’s so exhausted after the video calls. It’s the plausible deniability of each other’s absence. Our minds tricked into the idea of being together when our bodies feel we’re not. Dissonance is exhausting.

My day job (also: night job) is CEO of Slack, a publicly traded company with investors to whom I am a fiduciary, 110k+ paying customers of all sizes, and thousands of employees I care about very, very much. The last few weeks have been 🤯😳😢 Here’s what it's been like. [Thread]

Coronavirus safety tip: Assume you’re an asymptomatic carrier (because you don’t know you’re not) and that everyone you come within six feet of has an immunocompromised roommate.
The internet is amazing. Folks are already cooking up rapid-to-produce ventilators. This design is brilliantly simple and could be build in large volume easily (like, can use a wide range of commodity parts, as current availablity on things like motors/bearings is critical) pic.twitter.com/x1uyom6ESi

Conferenceless is projected to grow much faster than Serverless.
When people resist change its really important to consider the possibility that they may be right. Dont just bulldoze, that's violent arrogance. Listen to the arguments. Design an experiment to test, with minimum blast radius. Create proof points.
Hey nice #epidemiologists, do any of you want to weigh in on the validity/usefulness of this article currently making the rounds in #tech/#nerd-land? Curious to hear a take from someone with expertise like @SMHopkins @jonred15 @gmleunghku @shakakalaka medium.com/@tomaspueyo/co…
"Taken as a whole, what Monzo's system does is highly complex, but it has designed its systems in such as way as to divide that complexity into smaller, simpler pieces, and abstract it away from developers working on the code." theregister.co.uk/2020/03/09/…
