Mostly positive 1st impressions of #AvaloniaUI for #dotnet #linux development, with some paths forward #programming https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/05/13/avalonia-first-impressions/



 
I'm coming out of development/software engineering hibernation :) #programming https://www.nequalsonelifestyle.com/2019/05/02/dev-ramp-up/

Dove into some #diaspora code for the first time in forever to help someone figure out how to do something. I do enjoy that code base immensely even if I haven't worked in it for many months #programming #ruby

I have big hopes about the coming hackathon in Berlin. I really wish your API PR will be merged then, or at least have significant progress done



 
On Linux Journal's 25th Anniversary they interviewed Linus again. #programming #linux https://www.linuxjournal.com/content/25-years-later-interview-linus-torvalds

@Andrej Yeah pretty neat!



 
Darn, still no UI for Linux on the roadmap (although many good things). I want to try Avalonia but it'd be great if Linux wasn't a 3rd class #dotnet citizen. #programming https://visualstudiomagazine.com/articles/2019/04/04/net-core-3.aspx

Yep, C# is such a nice language

@Christoph S I know :(. Before I found Kotlin it was why I was heavily ramping up my .NET on Linux work. Everytime I hear a podcast on Avalonia and stuff I want to try it again. Also one project I want to do needs to be tying into some native libraries and the bridge for that through the CLR is far more reasonable than the options available through the JVM.

Before I started studying at university I was doing a professional training as software developer at a company and despite some legacy stuff we used C# for the newer porjects. I really loved the language. Then when I started studying at university it was like going back a couple of years, cause I had to learn Java and always wanted to do things like I did in C#, e.g. a foreach loop over a String. Of course in Java you need to use the damn CharArray stuff....AutoProperties in C# for getter/setter were also very nice!
Well, but in the meantime with Java 8 there have been a lot of great advances.



 
Supply chain management and detailed tracking seemed to me to be one of the best uses of blockchains. Apparently Bellucci is using it so you can track and confirm where the olive oil in the jar you produced came from. As an olive oil lover who is leery of adulterated olive oil (which is a lot of them) and a software developer I found that to be pretty neat! #food #programming #blockchain https://www.bbc.com/news/business-47553054

This is really really neat! As coded this produces 114 years of music driven by the pi sequence. It sounds pretty neat too #math #science #programming https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/vbwn7d/musician-creates-a-million-hour-song-based-on-the-number-pi

It does sound pretty neat!



 
I'm having a bit of "writers block" on developing recently. Trying to ruminate on it to get past it. #programming #opensource #fediverse

@Hank G have you ever touched the Social Home project by @Jason Robinson 🐍🍻?

It's Python, not PHP and to my knowledge the project's team doesn't mind integrating different Fediverse protocols too

@senya I've chatted with him about it but haven't played with it yet.

@Hank G maybe there you'll find your happiness :)
