Favstar gets even better if you sign in.
You know how women writers have had to write under male names for centuries? Male devs should release code as women just to see the hatred.
Protip: if your code can't be read and understood by a beginner, you are one. #painfullessons
Recent advances in my career, personality, and friendships are a result of going to therapy. It's not for crazy people - it's for people.
Really simple rule for cleaning up code: Put the code into methods/functions that are named after what they do.
The basics go a long way.
To undo brogramming we can't just return to nerd culture – even that was rampantly sexist. We gotta grow the whole industry up.
Partially inspired by @shanley's post ( http://blog.prettylittlestatemachine.com/blog/2013/02/20/what-your-culture-really-says …) I wrote about "culture fit" at Square: http://squ.re/I6kpi8
"And then the techies told us they'd invented $13B of new wealth from nothing, distributed it among themselves, and wanted to trade with us"
I don't like hackathons/hackfests.
99% of coding is careful reading and thinking; putting it into a race/contest format doesn't appeal to me
Therapy is the worst. I use to have a simple, calcified system for living my life. Now all I have are these authentic emotional experiences.
I never had the chance to upend an entire industry before Square. That opportunity now comes every couple months.
I was reading about chess-solving algos this morning when something _really_ started to bother me: http://6brand.com/the-king-cannot-be-removed-from-the-board.html …
Reading about sexism at Pycon. Feeling mixed feelings. I think people miss that when a lady speaks up once she was silent 100 other times.
Feminist linguist. On a quest to find the greatness in everyone.
