Programming thread -

  • Trump is threatening to repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to spite Twitter and I am tracking competing efforts to edit legislation here.
    P.S. A source of my income was removed by payment networks recently. If you'd like to donate crypto, my addresses are here.

Any recommendations for sites with remote work job postings?
Frameworks and languages you're familiar with might have their own job boards. I generally recommend checking those first since it means you'll see fewer listings you aren't qualified for.

Depends on where you are in your career. You can try this site.

Thanks, boyos, I'll look into this

What an idiotically soy-filled response considering the only reason the joke works is because she is a fucking legend.
This sort of shit is way more off-putting to women considering STEM jobs than any legitimate muhsoguhknee.

I wouldn't want to work in a field where if someone makes an innocuous joke some fat autistic fuck is going to come barrelling in to defend my honor from imaginary transgressions.

I got a JIRA issue in a project that is #911 and had to stop myself from making a 9/11 crack on the development Slack channel. Thanks a lot, KF.

how is she a legend now? I looked at her bio and it claims that she was an engineer but the print out photo is the code written by "her team". From the credits, it looks like she was another woman who accidentally detoured into computer science and was immediately promoted to a lead to keep away from fucking up code. Most of her accomplishments are nebulous lead this and organizing that, which basically spells out as someone who sucked at being an actual engineer and a coder and who had to go somewhere else to verbally bullshit, because at the end of the day you don't need to compile that.

No secret, it's the meat. Don't skimp on the meat.

Simply put, Autistic fucks are gonna be Autistic fucks. There will be people out there who’s gonna sperg about dumb shit like this. She’s just seen as a legend because she worked on something relating to the Apollo Program. I personally prefer the engineers and programmers who worked on the Shuttle during its early years though.

This is an ignorant comment on many levels. NASA in the '60s wasn't much interested in today's idea of political correctness; there were Russkies to beat to the moon, and lives were literally at stake. There was neither the culture of affirmative action and hiring quotas, nor the tolerance of anyone who didn't belong there. Second, in the early days of modern computing, female programmers were not at all uncommon, largely because doing calculations was seen as secretarial-style work. I have no doubts that Hamilton was competent at her job and wasn't just a "diversity hire."

I fucking love when someone spergs about js (and its dependencies) and then you take a look at the person's code and it has more spaghetti than a Italian restaurant.

Or runs fucking slow because php succ they can't code properly.

whoa, we just made a leap from using a Felix to being a "programmer"
