It is so amazing what #Mozilla has achieved:

Back in 2013 asm.js, which has now evolved into #WebAssembly #WASM - one of the most relevant technologies for computing in the future.

2015, what has started as a research project by Graydon Hoare, the #Rust programming language, which will define how we will develop software in the future.

I think people don't appreciate this enough.

#Innovation #Appreciation #ThankYouMozilla

Is it weird that some #ActivityPub implementations don't seem to comply with the standard as thoroughly as others? E.g., #Friendica's outboxes return no "Create" activities, listing posts directly instead. #Funkwhale returns Activity Streams objects only on GET requests with "accept" set to 'application/activity+json', but the header which is mandatory to support is 'application/ld+json; profile="w3.org/ns/activitystreams"'. Also, no implementation treats likes as discussed in the docs. #Fediverse

This is a PSA

Please remember people:

- Replace twitter.com by a 'nitter' instance - it allows you to read stuff on the bird site without the annoyances.

- Replace reddit.com by a 'teddit' instance in the same way

- Put your annoying newspaper link after 'archive.is' for the same result.

If we all work together on this one, we can all make Mastodon a better place!

Thank you!

This is the end of this PSA.

Clearly this person has not had to deal with 18 different JS frameworks that change every year

No, do not generate configuration using code in a real programming language.

Either your configuration is simple enough to use plain configuration files, or it’s complicated enough to use a dedicated config language like Dhall.

Do functional programmers depend on Stackoverflow? In my experience I almost never have to visit stackoverflow when coding in or , but as soon as I touch something like JavaScript or Python, 80% of my time goes to scouring the web for information
