it’s the push and pull of who I want to be, that makes me realize who I am is me

Ah I see, I missed the two different pronouns in first tweet. Though, still wondering: what if you're building on top of another package? Is {your-pkg}.{my-pkg} acceptable? Not sure if your comment about not using someone else's org name applies to their pkg name

What should the convention be instead? Lots of packages do {domain}.{org}.{pkg}.{feature}, which I find tedious to import. Coming from JS, I tend to prefer using {pkg}.{feature} naming, if a given package name is unique enough to avoid classpath collisions.

This is a remarkably beautiful essay by Wallace Shawn that explains socialism in a way I've never seen before

Ugh, had no idea it was shutting down. It was only now that I decided to look into why the chrome extension stopped working. Guess I lost my highlights -.- at least I can take solace in the fact that your export script was written in Clojure :)

"What matters is not just what a programming language makes possible, but what it makes practical and idiomatic." - , in Clojure Made Simple (just read the transcript for the talk, it's a great primer on what makes Clojure great)

It's amazing how much time you can waste trying to save a fundamentally flawed approach that almost works.

I was considering Clojurescript for a project, and Jest was also one of the tools I was going too miss the most even simple things, like good test logging, are easy to take for granted

Native Code = a bulldozer. You need it to build something sizeable and commercial grade. NoCode = a pickup truck. Powerful enough to help you get most simple and intermediate projects done. In short, NoCode is 20% of the cost and effort, for 80% of the result...

Conversations about how many hours one has to work to be successful are unproductive. Definitions of success vary, and definitions of work vary even more. Rather than debating this, I'd be easier to say, "Do what makes u happy," and "Make sure ur company's values are aligned!"

Every time we interact with an app, we *feel* it. Not physically, of course, but mentally. I've spent a lot of time thinking about how the design of an app can impact human expression. I wrote an essay to unpack what I've learned:

yea a SR system was difficult for me to adopt bc I also had to build the habit of regularly checking an external flashcard app that's why I've been working on a note-taking app that lets you create flashcards inside your actual notes ()
