Hello #accessibility people!
Are there any hints you would give users on here to make posts more accessible?
I've heard these quite often:
-Add a text description on your images, it won't affect the character limit on your main post.
-Don't use rapidly blinking gifs on your profile, they are animated by default on public profiles.
RubyTogether August monthly newsletter has some welcome news on reorg (reorganization for the long run section).
Wow.. valid ssl plus window only being wide enough to see valid part of url. I can see this fooling some 😶
RT @email@example.com Quick phishing demo. Would you fall for something like this?
@james Absolutely. In OSS communities like Ruby, the general rule of thumb is that individuals give value while companies take value. I see nothing wrong in trying to balance that.
I'm #hiring again!
Do you care about developer productivity? Do you want to help people make better software more easily and (hopefully) more quickly? That's what we're doing in the Release Engineering team at WMF.
I'm looking for candidates with wide varieties of backgrounds. The most important quality you possess is the ability to learn and a deep desire to make things better.
Join my team as a Software Engineer!
I regularly see #FOSS compared communism. There are definitely similarities.
I won't go deeper into the subject but I want to point out that accepting the point is outright dangerous.
Until FOSS can provide for a living in a capitalist environment it should not take pride in the way it accepts contribution.
In isolation it looks very similar to the ideals of communism but in the broader context it exploits contributors more than an average corporation.
My name is Hugh. I am a late stage software developer. Dubious about social media, but willing to give it a try. So here goes.
Still learning, though sipping at the fire hose of technological changes is increasingly challenging.
Hey y’all. My name is Graham and I’m a Ruby developer from North Carolina, glad to be here! #introductions
Did you know that https://communitywiki.org/trunk exists?
It's a new project where you can find people in the Fediverse and follow them by topic.
Also, you can request to be included. It's a really cool idea.
If you are new to Mastodon or you are looking for more interesting people to follow, you should check it out.
