Pinned toot

I'm working with some code where a function takes a `date` parameter, and if no date is provided, calls _in the default argument constructor_.

The functional programmer in me finds that absolutely horrifying.

I'm not sure why calling an impure function in the argument constructor bothers me so much more than calling it in the body of the function would – but it sure does!

So Merveilles Town, how are you doing today? Are you feeling okay? Is everything all right? Talk to me. :tealheart:

I’ve just came back from a walk around a lake near the sea. Two swans noticed me and came to say hello!

This week I learned more than I'd ever thought I'd know about transaction isolation in Postgres

Today I'm launching shards on my website:

These are a way for me to write down and share my rough, uncut thoughts without all the ceremony and polish of a proper post.

Shards also appear in my Atom feed, so subscribe to that if RSS is your thing:

(Also, let me know if there are improvements I can make to my RSS feed, I'm not a big RSS person).

The loft office is finished (it'll never be properly finished, but I can take a break for a few months now, not generate any sawdust, and just use the space).

Recently released Radicle, a peer-to-peer code collaboration stack. Super excited!

🤝 Peer-to-peer — no central servers, no censorship
💻 Local-first — everything's stored on your machine
🔐 Secure by design — no accounts, just crypto 🔑
💕 For the collective — a fresh take on sustainability

My utter disdain for Go has been rekindled as of late.

Finally getting around to adding code completion for luxe/wren ✨

I’ve since cleaned up the formatting to match vscode, this was really early on when I got the plumbing down and completion was first coming through

I’m thrilled to announce that tomorrow is my first day on the engineering team at WorkOS (!

I’m super excited about the platform we’re building to help developers quickly integrate enterprise features (like single sign-on) into their app and cross the enterprise chasm.
