I'm not convinced that Android multi-module projects are the way to go anymore. I'm finding gradle indexing, building and rebuilding is taking up the majority of my day now. It feels like I'm barely coding anymore and just waiting for the tools to catch up.

The problem is that nobody really does "mobile-first". ~everybody designs/builds on desktop, and few know about or use chrome://inspect as they core of their workflow:…

Mobile-first responsive design works. The alternative is far worse—separate code bases; separate m. sites? Never again!

It’s time to go on a deep dive into SwiftUI! 😀 I’m super happy to announce that my next guest on the @swiftbysundell podcast will be @joshshaffer — engineering director with the UIKit and SwiftUI team at Apple! 🍎🎉 What questions would you like me to ask Josh? Reply below 👍

The JS community is in pretty deep denial today. CPUs won't get faster soon enough to keep the current levels of JS emissions from totally suffocating the mobile web, at which point we'll be the next generation of Cobol programmers -- essential, but not the future.
Jeremy Wagner@malchata
The JS-as-CO2 comparison is tragically appropriate.

When we watch TV, our TVs watch us back and track our habits. This practice has exploded recently since it hasn’t faced much public scrutiny. But in the last few days, not one but *three* papers have dropped that uncover the extent of tracking on TVs. Let me tell you about them.

Asked an entire room full of webdevs yesterday if any of them knew that FF/Chrome/Opera/Brave/etc. for iOS weren't allowed to compete on engine quality. Zero hands up.

iOS 13 has felt like a super-messy release, something we haven't seen this bad since iOS 8 or so. Definitely needs a lengthy period of consolidation and bug fixing; Apple's adding more and more flakey layers between HW and UI, and many subsystems need much more battle-hardening

This is wildly disingenuous, I speak as a flight instructor and major IT incident investigator. Modern software authors have the professional discipline of a cute puppy in comparison to aviation practitioners.

I agree with Chris. This is the kind of thinking that leads to "Why can't we just have building codes for software? It worked to protect against earthquakes and fire!" Earthquakes and fire aren't conscious adversaries. Try writing a standards document on how to win at chess.

So @sama has articulated the way many guys in Silicon Valley feel about "free speech". It's not a very sophisticated or informed view, but it's pretty common and he's influential, so it's worth identifying why it's dangerous and wrong.

my favorite trend is capitalists trying to describe socialism but just describing capitalism again “you don’t get the full value of your wages, it’s given to people who didn’t work for it” “there’s no individual choice, you’re just forced to work for a powerful elite group”

Getting tons of reports that Overcast is crashing or getting killed in the background after about 30 seconds of playback on iOS 12.4. Any other iOS devs hitting problems like this? Any ideas? It seems to have resulted from 12.4 itself, not any changes to my code in that time.

Shooting at Walmart in Baton Rouge. 2 store patrons get into an argument. Both brandish weapons but the person shot was a bystander and not a part of the argument. Sure glad the good guys with the guns were there to help. WTF.

the one thing i’ll say about the new twitter website is that the code’s filled with a bunch of (i assume) machine-generated classes, which makes it much, much harder to customize or hide parts of the UI with browser extensions

I love maps & their promise of fractal discovery. I love procedural generation and the aesthetics of the unauthored. Where do these two loves intersect? Generated maps. I am the procgen map admirer. These are my favorite map generators and the folks who create them. 👇THREAD👇

I want a podcast app that functions like a radio dial. So you can fish around and scan through programs and discover podcasts by listening to their *actual audio* rather than judging them by name and host and art. Someone please take this idea.
