I'm teaching my daughter #scratch this coming school year. I'm planning on doing small lessonlets with her and then giving her time to play with it and explore. A lot like how I remember learning QBasic. It's not really about the language as much as exploring the constrains of the system and making art using code. I credit my computer teacher in 10th grade with helping me love computers. She learned along with us and encouraged us to explore what was possible within the bounds of the language.
Does anyone know about using shared libraries in #rust? I understand one can build a library and link to it from C but I need to know more about linking to it from other crates. I have passing knowledge about 'extern crate'. My goal is to build a given library once and link to it from other rust-written binaries.
The IETF OpenPGP working group has been reopened and we have a concrete plan to get a crypto-refresh out the door!
Is there reason to believe that we'll succeed this time? I think so. A number of new players (not only Sequoia) have joined the OpenPGP ecosystem over the past few years, and they all seem willing to work together to push the standard forward.
We released 'sq', #sequoia #pgp's CLI. Read about it here: https://sequoia-pgp.org/blog/2021/01/26/202101-sq-release/ . You can also get it from crates.io with a simple `cargo install sequoia-sq`.
Best part of a prerecorded session is getting to heckle myself over IRC during the talk!

How many inputs does an average #guix derivation have? Around 31 is my guesstimate from the Guix Data Service data.
This sort of chart might show some more nuances though, there's probably some reason why 3, 6, 10 and 25 are quite popular...
Nyxt version 2 pre-release 5 is out!
“A female colleague and [I] had dared to discuss wage transparency and gender pay gap in the office … Unfortunately we miscalculated – our boss Matthias was beyond furious. After that office meeting, he told my colleague ‘there will be consequences.’ … I want to expose the hypocrisy and double standards in FSFE leadership. How the organisation ‘promoting’ transparency, equality and inclusivity treats employees and more specifically women.”
