Here’s another way for creators, backers and everybody to tell Kickstarter mgmt that the union busting must stop. Care of the brilliant and badass

Tonight there was a walk out to support my brilliant husband who has spent the past six years supporting other people’s dreams. He’s available for hire because our dog likes that organic dog food. Reach him at !

Taylor worked tirelessly to lift up creators and champion Kickstarter as a viable funding model for independent creators. He is a true believer, a good person, a great friend, and he deserves better. If you are still at Kickstarter, so do you. Unionize.

She was! And every single person who had the privilege of working with her–coworker or creator–would agree. Kickstarter is poorer for her absence.

This morning, after six years of pouring my life into the mission, the staff, and the creators of , I was fired for organizing a union. They offered me no real reasons, but one month's severance for signing an NDA. I will not be signing it.

If I had to give a single piece of advice to people learning functional programming and/or : "Follow the types" This has helped me understanding from episodes to parts of the Babylon app I never seen.

We've got 2 left in this modularity series, but there is still more to cover for effects and testing!

We're starting to see yet another benefit to being able to pullback reducers. They can now be extracted out into their own modules so that they are 100% isolated from each other and the main app, while still allowing themselves to be combined together later.

Dang that’s awesome! Seems like a great fit! Still remember trying to cram all of KSR social into ES 😅

Yeah absolutely, this is a really great thing Swift gives us.

Not really, just that we got a whole library of the higher eithers and it handles a bunch of cases for us

We had similar problems when building and that's why we upgraded our email function to take either plain text, or HTML, or both: It's unfortunate that 3rd party client libraries tend not to use strong types to enforce server-side logic.

Every Lie group is orientable. This means that it is "two-sided" (as a smooth manifold). So, we cannot have a Lie group looking like a Möbius strip, a Klein bottle, or 2n-dimensional real projective space.

Our reducer architecture takes full advantage of Swift language features, so it's unlike what you may have seen in Redux and Elm. For example, we use "inout" for performance and simplicity! We talked about the differences in our first episode on reducers:

This is a lot of fun: I was able to make a copy change to 's subscription page, which is entirely driven by JS logic, but I could still get screenshot test coverage on it! All thanks to the ability to run snapshot tests on WKWebViews!

Ha, not weird at all, but unfortunately it was custom made. It was made long before I had the piano, but it just so happens to fit perfectly.

SPM kinda forbids this right now by requiring tests to live in an actual Tests/ directory, but maybe a proposal could be made to lighten this restriction. But in iOS applications it's totally possible.

We collocate snapshot artifacts alongside test files in our Swift snapshot testing library. At Kickstarter we also collocated actual test files alongside implementations (and they still do). I wrote about it here:
