BITBUCKET IS DELETING HG REPOSITORIES TOMORROW!!!
Steps to save your code:
1) clone locally and keep it somewhere findable/your personal archive
2) deposit a copy in Software Heritage with this form: https://archive.softwareheritage.org/save/
3) deposit a copy in Zenodo (zenodo.org) or use the Open Science Framework's (osf.io) integration with Bitbucket to drag and drop the files into OSF storage (or GL or GH) for persistence
Why a subscription costs less time and money than hourly rates? Read on for an interesting comparison between the two models!
If you work as a dev or even ops person, try to do user support once in a while. Or at least talk to your support people. Even one hour a month teaches you more about your work than 100 gitlab issues ever will.
It's not necessarily *my* FOSS projects that I want to be successful, but rather the FOSS ecosytem as a whole. I have stewardship over my little slice of it, but the FOSS ecosystem is a much broader (and singular) thing that I believe we all have a joint responsibility in caring for.
All free software is ours for the improving: projects will welcome our contributions and we should focus on broadening our impact.
To accomplish this, it helps to work on reducing the mental leap it takes for you to go from user to contributor, until the line between the two roles is difficult to distinguish. Contribute early, contribute often, and you'll be rewarded with a healthier free software ecosystem.
Honestly if I could boil all design advice down to a single tip, "make it difficult to do the wrong thing" would be it
I have a huge urge to "create". On the whole I'm really happy with that: I'm learning a lot in the process, having fun trying new things, and producing enjoyable and/or useful results (though not necessarily 😃).
On the other hand, I often only learn "just enough" to complete the challenge at hand, and rarely take time to consciously improve my skills. For example, I haven't finished a book in ages. It feels like there's untapped potential there.
How do y'all balance these? Any good tricks to keep improving both "in the small" and "in the large"?
Also, friendly reminder: a we can poke fun at iOS or Android all we want, but a duopoly between some of the world’s biggest trillion-dollar companies is NOT healthy, nor in any users' best interest.
"Starting with version 3.0, k4dirstat requires KDE Framework 5"
Seriously, though, it's a really great utility to find out what's eating your disk space. I like how you can start browsing and deleting stuff while it's still indexing.
It seems that Google wants to make using app bundles a requirement for new apps on Google Play in 2021: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=320&v=cMr-b660Esw
This would mean developers have to upload their signing keys to google play even though there's no technical benefit in doing that. You can achieve the same efficient download sizes by using bundletool locally and uploading all generated apks. But it seems google will stop allowing that and just wants your signing keys.
We should totally do a #Hindsight2020 tag for highlighting and learning from our past mistakes.
Some people are renaming their 'master' branches to 'main' branches.
https://dev.to/rhymu8354/git-renaming-the-master-branch-137b is a nice reference of the git commands you might need.
