There's nothing broken about either. Raft is just hard.

I want someone to show up and take things away. The last thing I need is more crap in the house. Especially gadgets.

You can type-check and PEP8 broken all you want. Still broken. Blackened broken? Broken. Broken is still broken in the IDE. And IDEs don’t color highlight suffering.

It’s not about features. I’ve had people use Go. They also struggle.

What's five-levels of metaprogramming magic layered on top of broken? Still broken, that's what.

Day 5 of Raft class. If this class has taught me anything, it's that working an an advanced problem will up your game far more than studying "advanced features." There is literally *NO* advanced feature of Python that makes Raft easy. If anything, it's the opposite.

This week’s Raft course is definitely the most diverse in terms of languages: Have people using Python, Erlang, Elixr, Java, Rust, and Racket. Tried to get kid to implement Raft in Scratch, but he was having none of it. Alas.

Want to learn how to find complex bugs in systems within hours, instead of weeks? Yer in luck, I'm teaching a public workshop on software modeling!

Man, that sucks. I think a common misperception on burnout is that it’s related to working too hard when in reality, it’s often more related to not being able to make a difference.

Getting ready for Day 4 of Raft. Maybe we should get around to electing a leader.

I just know that when I work on code, I don’t really want a Home Owners Association attached to it. Nor do I want to serve as its president.

Starting to wonder if the kid's middle school is even going to exist by the end of the school year.
