If you are new to Mastodon, or, like me, not so totally new anymore but still puzzling how this all works, read Noëlle Anthony's awesome Guide to Mastodon: github.com/joyeusenoelle/Guide

Tools are only as good as their documentation, user guides and communities. Thank you @noelle , you made Mastodon an even better tool for me (and I suppose a lot of other people too) now.

Ok, finally, some . Hello everyone.

I'm a scattered identity somewhere between science & technology studies, computer science and education. Also sometimes self-referred to as a free floating trans*disciplinary post-technoscientist.

My interests are tagged in the profile. Currently I spend most of my time with systems & network administration, a bit of workshopping and teaching, organizing feminist tech meetups and events, and trying to finish my ITsec master programme.

Diversity hier, Diversity da… was meinen wir eigentlich damit? Unser Selbstverständnis und wie wir mit @jackie auf unseren ersten Diversity-Quest gingen: jugendhackt.org/unser-erster-d

In the push to support trans kids (something that’s always needed, btw), there is often an overflowing amount of narratives of trans adults testifying that “they always knew.”

I just want to remind all the people questioning their gender that some people always knew, but some of us didn’t. *I* didn’t. And it’s ok to be only figuring it out when you are older.

I was 35 years and 221 days old when I finally figured it out. Others have been older.

It’s never too late to make the connection.

Für die feministisch umtriebigen Nerd*innen (FNTI) in Wien gibts diese Woche wieder was zu tun:

Morgen abend: Feminist Python Meetup mit Workshop zu MicroPython: feminist-python.diebin.at/inde

Freitag abend: Feminist Linux Meetup mit ner Intro zu Backup-Lösungen unter Linux: feminist-linux.diebin.at/2019/

Und noch ein weiterer Anteaser-Auszug (2/2):
"Deshalb ist eine Verbindung von Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien mit human- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Fächern nicht nur ideal, um eine breitere Population an potenziellen Coderinnen und Codern zu gewinnen, vielmehr geht es im Sinne partizipativer Ansätze darum, Technologien gemeinsam mit Userinnen und Usern und deren konkreten Bedürfnissen zu entwickeln." (Source: derstandard.de/story/200010034)

Grad gelesen: derstandard.de/story/200010034

Und ein Auszug zum anteasern (1/2):
"Und deshalb nutzt es auch nichts, wenn wir alle Jahre wieder am Internationalen Frauentag Mädchen und Frauen "ermutigen", Programmieren zu lernen und in gut bezahlte Informatikjobs zu gehen, wenn die Rahmenbedingungen dort noch nicht wirklich reif sind für alternative Ideen und vielfältige Lebensentwürfe abseits klassischer Stereotype."

Every time I see the Hacker Ethic praised without critically challenging its shortcomings, I have to think of "Programming is Forgetting: Toward a New Hacker Ethic" by Allison Parrish and wish it was more popular. You can read the transcript here opentranscripts.org/transcript

Today the starts, with lots of interesting talks and workshops: pydays.at/schedule

One session will be dedicated to presenting and networking different initiatives that foster diversity in tech: pydays.at/womenintech

Looking forward to seeing lots of folks there.

The whole event is free, so you can join quite sontaneously.

Tools suggested by Alda Vigdís you can also use for accessibility testing:
* the Lighthouse extension for Chrome: bit.ly/lighthouse-quickstart
* accessible-colors.com
* A11ycast on YouTube

Also her slides will be put online at her blog: aldavigdis.wordpress.com

Also quite nice, the intro by Silvio Heinze on how to use Wordpress with Docker. Slides and compose files are at github.com/silvioheinze/wordca

#Wordpress people: does anybody know of a plugin that allows *readers* to change the color scheme of the site? (i.e. not me when I design it; I want two or more separate color schemes and a swap button)

Currently at the WordCamp Vienna. Listening to awesome talk about accessibility in Gutenberg. Any chance anyone else from the Fediverse is here?

I've already spotted @emaryllis and @mundschenk_at here on the instance writing/being mentioned in this context.

Und weil in Wien nicht nur zu Ostern geheggt wird:

Nach dem großen Anklang beim ersten feministischen Linux Meetup gehts näxten Freitag gleich mit 0x02 weiter: es werden diverse Linux Distros vorgestellt, ausprobiert, angepasst, etc.
