@tindall I don't have an answer to the "how" question.
I just wanted to mention Matrix: a modern communication protocol with a client very similar to Slack/Discord. It's open in a proper way and may be apealling to developers.
Then there's XMPP. A mature protocol with varying support of extensions in clients. The protocol includes all sorts of modern bells and whistles: OMEMO, MIX, TOTP and lots more.
So it's not like there's nothing to replace IRC.
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!
@teleclimber That too demonstrates misalignment between idea of communism and the actual inner working of FOSS.
The apparent similarity (community aspect) can give people false impressions.
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.
@Pedro It hides page title. Tabs never can fully show page title. Hate it.
Hey y’all. My name is Graham and I’m a Ruby developer from North Carolina, glad to be here! #introductions
@aral AFAIKT OS X had theme support from the very beginning (10.0). It just wasn't use very extensively. For a long time there were community maintained themes for OS X.
The dark mode uses the same engine. Even if there was some engineering effort it was not as much as building it all from scratch.
