Hello #accessibility people!

Are there any hints you would give users on here to make posts more accessible?

I've heard these quite often:

-Use CamelCase on hashtags, i.e. capital letters for each word within the tag. #CamelCase is easier for screenreaders to read correctly than #camelcase

-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.

We could use:

* A Rails-savvy architect or senior dev with architecture aspirations
* A technical manager comfy with multiple teams in an agile environment
* Some Vue-experienced UI developers

If any of these are you, feel free to DM me.

vim: there's more than one way to do it, i.e. the way you're doing it now, and the slightly more convenient way to do it that you'll discover by accident sometime in the next twenty years

RubyTogether August monthly newsletter has some welcome news on reorg (reorganization for the long run section).

Finding published books that are so terrible I can't finish the first chapter is really giving me strength to get started again on writing me own.

Wow.. valid ssl plus window only being wide enough to see valid part of url. I can see this fooling some 😶
RT Quick phishing demo. Would you fall for something like this?


I am struggling to become a Ruby, JS developer later in life. It's been harder than I thought to rearrange my life to make room for this change. Any one out there have any tips? I'd love to find a solid mentor.

@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 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.

Work revolves around #emacs and #embedded #linux. Avocational interests lean toward #lisp; just started exploring #clojure.

Typing is easier than clicking. My desktop manager is #i3 running on #archlinux.

Still learning, though sipping at the fire hose of technological changes is increasingly challenging.

I’m looking for Ruby developers who have an app idea, but have never managed to get it built & in the App Store. If that sounds like you, let me know and I’ll put you on the list for my upcoming webinar.

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 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.

@pointlessone I built a tool to use the Hashtag Search of other instances. Not exactly what you are looking for, but maybe it helps:
