I can’t handle how good Lianne LaHavas’s voice is.

Ah, custom config gets tricky... if you want some extra eyes on it, the chat is full of super helpful people.

Yeah, Gatsby and Hooks work with hot reloading. It should be possible to bump your version to latest without any issues — there haven’t been any breaking changes in v2. Let me know if you have any trouble with it!

Sorry. Didn't mean to start a thing.

I see that all the time, too. Like I said, I don't feel super strongly about this. My own thought process was: - I can't back the “guys is unisex” argument - if it makes *anyone* feel left out, I’d rather not use it - the overhead to change my phrasing is low - seems worth it

Hi! My team at Etsy is hiring - if you are a senior frontend engineer who loves design, accessibility, and performance, are a systems thinker, and are excited by the possibility of modernizing a large, legacy frontend codebase, HMU!

Meh, I don't know. I don't feel super strongly about this, but I definitely think the “guys is unisex” argument is thin and boils down to, “It’s unisex when I want it to be, but not when I would be uncomfortable with how it’s used as a unisex term.”

I'd argue that it's an accepted colloquial term, but definitely not unisex. I imagine it wouldn't go well if you asked your straight dude friends about all the guys they've dated.

I sold one to my parents, which is probably the most evil thing I've ever done.

I get the sense you were *way* cooler than me as a teenager.

Oof. I had a couple close calls like that, too. Really glad kids are bouncy; I don’t think adult me would still be upright if I took some of those spills today. 😱

I like the “5 jobs I’ve had” tweet. I hope that for code newbies, you’re able to see that people who are now full-time software engineers didn’t wake up and suddenly have a dev job. + I hope employers are able to recognize that we all really have varied backgrounds.
