Remember that time I wrote my own web testing assertion libary?
Well, I slipped and accidentally wrote a whole own test runner framework.

So, if you do end-to-end browser testing, or want to, and maybe would like something similar to cypress, but powered by playwright, I'd love some feedback!

(it's very much not finished)

factorio alternatives 

If you are looking for alternatives, Satisfactory is different, but also a nice factory builder. I haven't played Dyson Sphere Program yet, but after that I probably will very soon, I'll probably crave some base building after finishing Mass Effect.

factorio, bigots, tone deaf dev, sexism 

"I'm not defending that women shouldn't be senior software engeneers, but if someone would defend that, it doesn't make him a bigot just because he proposes that and have some arguments, only if those arguments were debunked and the person wouldn't be willing to change his mind, then yes, it sounds like a bigot.[…]"

Well, that is me probably never playing factorio again.

Nevermind Uncle Bobs right wing bullshit, even his technical opinions are just… bad.
To be frank, I think Clean Code is absolute trash and should never be recommended to junior devs. Ever.

Oh no.
The lead designer and co-founder of the game factorio has outed himself as an absolute techbro.
After writing some blogpost about some tech-stuff ( mentioning "Uncle Bob", known old white programmer man with political "opinions", and having been told about said bad opinions on reddit he responded with (allegedly) "Take the cancel culture mentaility and shove it up your ass." in a now deleted (by the mods) comment.

covidmaßnahmen, rant 

Kaum sinken hier in Brandenburg die Inzidenzen auf einstellig, werden natürlich sofort alle Maßnahmen abgerissen. Parties, Disco, große Privatfeiern? Kein Problem! Natürlich das meiste jetzt auch ohne Maske.
Ist der Plan, rechtzeitig zur Verbreitung der Delta-Variante den Inkubator anzuwerfen? Könnt ihr nach über nem fucking Jahr nicht einfach noch ein paar Wochen stillhalten? Natürlich nicht, lieber nochmal ein Jahr Pandemie riskieren…

At venueless we're taking another step to develop more in the open and are previewing features currently in development on github discussions, starting with a new moderation view, polls, and obs-able presentation views:

work, pressure 

I just counted, and I have at least seven unfinished features (80% done and usable behind a feature flag, but not polished to my standards) just rotting in the codebase. Meanwhile the bosses are chasing yet another large customer who dictates our feature roadmap. In principle we developers decide what gets done next, but we all know we'd rather start yet another new and exiting thing rather than cleaning up old stuff, especially if there is zero incentive to do so.

Hey Mastodon, ich bin auf der Suche nach einem neuen Job als Site Reliability Enigneer o.ä. (Titel egal, Inhalt ist mir wichtig).

Ich baue und betreibe gerne automatisierte und skalierbare Infrastruktur, aktuell auf Basis von Kubernetes, das muss aber nicht der Hauptbestandteil sein.

Eine 32,5h-Woche (35h verhandelbar) und die Möglichkeit, komplett Remote arbeiten zu können, sind Voraussetzung.

Wenn ihr etwas spannendes kennt oder selbst dort arbeitet, freue ich mich über Hinweise.

Do I know any freelancers experienced with plugin development for WordPress (including integration with Gutenberg Editor)?

Spent all day hunting down a browser bug and it seems like chrome just broke pasting special formats for A LOT of apps, but only on linux, so of course nobody noticed until it got released:

functional programming, rant-y 

I think my biggest problem with functional programming and immutability is that a lot (and often the only) solutions for modifying complex state look very clever (aka really hard to grok). I'd rather have ` => a.b === 3).c = 5` than having to squint if that immutable modification actually replicated the same structure as before.

The Datenobservatorium might be gone, but our pride svg generator still exists, complete with fully customizable colors, ratios, wavy paths, transforms and masks! pride-gen.datenobservatorium.d

Do I know any freelance technical writers interested in a flexible, possibly long-term gig to help expand the pretix documentation?

Helft mir mal: ich bin langsam bereit für ein neues Profilbild, und ich würde diesmal wieder jemandem Geld für was Gemaltes geben … Wo guck ich denn da nach Leuten? Gibts hier nen Hashtag oder andere Seiten, auf denen ich gut gucken kann?

The Mitchells vs the Machines, negative, spoilers 

Don't get me wrong, the animation and art style looks awesome, but I can't get over the "Dad wants to spend more time with his daughter and makes her miss the first week of college, so he's forcing the family to do a roadtrip" setup. That plot can fuck right off, I don't want to see any kind of "mandatory redemption because apocalypse" arc for that character.

The Mitchells vs the Machines, negative, spoiler-ish 

40 minutes into this movie… and it's just another "Disfunctional damily with abusive dad bonds over apocalyptic event" plot, isn't it.
Thanks, I hate it.
Doesn't help that the apocalypse is yet another "facebook AI robots go rogue" tropefest.

Ich bräuchte mal eure Hilfe:

Ein Freund und ich wollen unsere einzelnen Selbständigkeiten zusammenlegen. Wir haben einen Haufen Fragen zur Rechtsform (GbR vs UG) und Steuerkrams (Gehalt/Ausschüttung wie? etc). Könnt ihr uns eine Rechts-/Steuer-Berater:in empfehlen? :boost_ok:
