Retweeted by Kevin Smith@bodil huh. I’ve only ever had Terry Gilliamesque experiences there.Definitely looking forward to starting a new adventure tomorrow.@bodil clearly you’ve never flown into/out of PhillyWarning: unknown unknowns, especially ones related to your (lack of) skills/experience, are hazardous to your health.

Hmmm. This is getting interesting. https://t.co/adn0ysR1o8 LuaJIT’s FFI is ridiculously productive.

@bdha @seancribbs @lusis ‘tis all good mangErlang Workshop community is my favorite part of #icfp2014. I've never met a nicer dev community, genuinely interested in helping others.
Retweeted by Kevin Smith@seancribbs @bdha @lusis well it is enterprise corp mktg after all ;)@shanelogsdon lua’s a fun language to work with and luajit is a fine piece of engineering. Its stupid small footprint doesn’t hurt either.@darachennis It’s mosquitto 1.3.4 w/strictness enabled.More languages should have LuaJIT’s FFI magic. I’ve written almost a complete MQTT binding in 3-ish hours. Amazeballs!Ah progress :) https://t.co/u19AI8dchO@lusis oboy@lusis Can has parent document for context?Which editors have good ANSI markdown support?

@Simergence All the things. Boredom is my enemy :)Holy crap. It works.@lusis @fnichol @portertech Bring ‘em. We can film a reality show with all our families: “OSS Preppers”@fnichol @lusis @portertech Who’s ready to move to the hippy farm commune and take up artisanal soybean curation?@puppetmasterd @portertech Enforce the community’s social contract. That we need call out harassment and death threats is depressing.@portertech @puppetmasterd I can’t accept that. If true, all OSS communities would be overrun by assholes which is clearly not true.Sorting keys in Lua tables. Fun? Not really.Can we please go a few months without someone leaving a community over harassment and/or threats?RT if this is one of the weirdest things you've ever seen. https://t.co/mBtpsGNdXr (Courtesy of @JLCT)

@markimbriaco @evanphx Old school idea: "If you can't find the time to do it right, when are you gonna find the time to do it again?"
Retweeted by Kevin Smith@base10 Me too. This is either going to go well or escalate spectacularly, imo.
@markimbriaco Insane requirements.@chipadeedoodah @soosiechoi Excellent. /me golf claps@SusanPotter https://t.co/4ZnjQt3VEW@SusanPotter If they don’t need therapy later in life you’re not doing parenting right :)@soosiechoi http://t.co/rEUZFqdDqlNow that I’m done ranting about technical leadership, I’m off to find something productive to do.@williamsjoe @ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage Honestly it boils down to leads giving a fuck about people. Sad it’s apparently rare.@williamsjoe @ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage “Forgive me, Scrummaster. It has been 6 months since my last PTO”@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage ….and company lacks intestinal fortitude to fix bad leader. Been there. Totally sucks.@akahn @ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage Very +1. Hire smart professionals. Expect them to be smart & professional. 2nd is hard for some.@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage don’t even get me going on no-meeting days. Sure sign company has no idea how to communicate, IMO.@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage my stand ups are not longer than 10 mins. Longer stand ups are sign of inexperienced/clueless lead.@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage within limits. In my experience, Unlimited PTO plans are subject to same. IANAL, etc.@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage Depends largely on leadership. Sane leads should enforce min PTO for team health & cohesion.@DukeAMO @michaelgorsuch @roidrage otherwise why do the work to build a good team if they’re going to work until they burn out? (2/2)@DukeAMO @michaelgorsuch @roidrage when i’ve led teams I keep track and try to make sure no-one goes too long w/o a break.

Retweeted by Kevin Smith@lusis I’ll need to see a picture of the knife first to verify it’s on the approved list of enterprise cutlery.@lusis did you fax aws the checksum first?@ohlol @michaelgorsuch @roidrage NotAllUnlimitedPTO. Depends on having leaders who care about more than shipping.@michaelgorsuch @roidrage no-one taking vacation is a leadership/culture failure. Has nothing to do w/policy, imo
