Docker Decalogy, The Last Zookeeper, or Little Hadoopy.@SeanTAllen At least I have a future in fantasy fiction if this computers thing falls thru.Accused my wife of being a shapeshifting Romanian dragon and referred to my daughter as "the swan princess".

"these social media millionaires want their club to reflect SV-style meritocracy. [...] the public cannot apply." http://t.co/fLHF9mxksPTech debt *does* impact customers. Speed of delivery, bug counts, downtime. Think about that before you ship another new feature...
Retweeted by Kevin SmithWhen Dev &/or Ops are burned out, frustrated, low on sleep etc. That's when mistakes happen, customers hate that. Look after your teams...

OH: "I typed that so aggressively I changed tabs and had to come back to hit enter."I try to be extra patient on first day back 2 school. Is it asking too much for bus drivers to know their route ahead of time @wcpss?TIL: PolKit rules are written in Javascript and sudo is a "hack".

@pavlobaron Oh yeah. Already done.@pavlobaron A "real" science. Whatever that is...So glad to see a panel on burnout in tech on the @velocityconf schedule. Props to @courtneynash for putting it together. Burnout is no fun.
Retweeted by Kevin Smith@skeptomai @vvuksan No clue.@jaredrichardson So very painfully true.@vvuksan Already in the works. Completely unacceptable, imo.THIS is why we don't have many women in science or tech. WTF world. WTF. (see prior tweets for context)Daughter said she's interested in mech. eng. during career discussion. In front of group instructor dismissed it as "just tinkering" (2/2)My daughter is attending a science camp for high schoolers this week which has been a pretty positive experience.

For anything new, where you don't need backwards compat, do not go anywhere near TLS/OpenSSL. Go straight to NaCl or similar modern libs.
