I admire your enthusiasm for learning more about unit testing in Angular. The most important thing for me would be to figure out how to find the high-yield cases and really avoid what looks great to someone who'd say 'the more tests the better' but never fails because I work for a small company and...

Usually, I'd say, politicians don't just "want to kill", there is no evil, no good, just strategy and power. At least that's what I would have said if you had used China or Afghanistan as examples. But Duterte and Bolsonaro are different breeds. They managed to completely make up enemies ...

So I have officially been employed as a programmer of some sort since 1980. I developed an interest in Java in the latter half of the 90s and have written Java code under various circumstances since then more or less continuously. I currently develop in Angular which means most of the procedural (a...

Easiest practical solution - use platform offering escrow service. Third party would hold your money until your client approves your work. It will filter out dudes who have no intention to pay in the first place. Then to stiff you your client would need to ask for a refund in theory there would be ...

Another question - do you look 'youthful', like in a way that draws negative attention and gives people the wrong idea about your capacities or ability to defend yourself? I need to make some of these decisions based on what are immutable issues (I've at least grown a full beard, Covid seems to have...

Do you have to work for someone else? I experienced some of the same sort of restrictions in my career. I went freelance which suits me better. I mean, it has downsides but on balance it works better for me. At least all the work you put in is for yourself, you don't feel so exploited. I'm not in t...

Listening to this right now, good discussion between Jim Rutt nd Zak Stein on both the roots of information war far and how it's ramped up since the cold war. https://www.jimruttshow.com/zak-stein-5/ Zak Stein & Jim have a wide-ranging talk inspired by two recent Consilience Project essays on th...

Where I work it's pretty flexible, and TBH they threw me in to projects that would have sunk them - without knowing half of what I needed to know (had to make up the difference on my health), so I don't think risk aversion's going to be much of a driving concern. What I worry about more is trying to...

The best explanation of what we're dealing with - that I've been able to find - has to do with complex systems, network effects, incentive structures, incentive structures being enslaved to optimization and scarcity, and when they aren't enslaved to that last piece they're enslaved to factors of Dar...

Ok, I'm far from an expert in any of this and perhaps I haven't understood you, but isn't test-driven development a sort of natural response to the increasing complexity of software? I mean, any large piece of software has so many people working on it that there has to be some sort of standardisati...

Asking because I'm trying to approach the issue and the environment seems insane. I'm all about self-testing code, I don't think it needs religion. What doesn't make sense to me about the dogma - you've gotta be in an unusual situation to red, green, refactor all of your utility functions to then bu...

I really didn't think I'd see this. Frank Luntz bringing in Tristan Harris, and even more surprising, Daniel Schmachtenberger, to potentially advise members of congress on the social media issues and more. I've been listening to both Tristan and Daniel for a long time, those familiar with Daniel - I...

:( They're a cyclical thing and likely to happen many more times through human history. Supplies and/or growth come up short, the populace gets angry, the government has no answers, and then a bit of (René) Girardian magic happens - scapegoating - where the populace can ease their pain by expropriat...
