Today I went crazy with Vue components, Laravel scopes, and fancy PHP classes with magic methods and actually felt like a super-competent web app developer! Yay!!!

Hey, kids. If youโ€™re gonna keep vomming can you please try and do it on Fridays rather than Sundays. The 48-hours-off rule is making it very hard to get any work done.

Three times in four weeks!? ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

P.S. Iโ€™m sorry. I love you. Get well soon.

One of those โ€œcan everyone please stop talking!!!!โ€ mornings. And Iโ€™m reminded of the idea of a holiday club for introverted kids. More: books, puzzles, video games, craft tables. Less: loud music and discos, parachute games for 50 people at once, etc.

Oh, and, yes, I complain about bad driving, but I like to praise good driving too. My office to Castle Eaton takes in some busy single-lane roads with blind corners. There was some great waiting and negotiation and some IMPECCABLE overtaking today.

It CAN be done!

Early lunchtime bike ride out to Castle Eaton to see the Red Arrows display. Not a great view, would love to have been closer, but loved the ride and the view!

More interesting to curious old me is the annual pattern of C++ and Java and the OPPOSITE pattern in JavaScript. All the corporate programmers take their summers and Christmasses off. While web programmers get busy learning and tinkering?

The increase in StackOverflow views for Python over time almost certainly represents an increase in usage, but to deem it “the world’s new top language” as the email did is making quite a big leap.

I’m not sure being top of the most-viewed list on StackOverflow is good for a language is it? It could imply your language is hard to learn, has unhelpful errors, has poor documentation. I’m not suggesting Python is/has these things. But SO views could be seen as failures?
