Building off this tweet, who are people/projects you would like to see on this? I have a few in mind but I know they are PHP centric and I don't think this will be limited to one language. Send suggestions my way!

A bunch of reasons you should never hire someone touting themselves as a "10x Engineer". This also applied to self ascribed "Rock Stars", "Ninjas", and "Cowboys".

10x engineers

Founders if you ever come across this rare breed of engineers, grab them. If you have a 10x engineer as part of your first few engineers, you increase the odds of your startup success significantly.

yay, brake caliper failure! That's another $700 into this damn car....

And I just saw Microsoft's XBox platform is also having issues.

WHAT HURT YOU INTERNET?!

So, does anyone know what actually broke today? Slack, Reddit, Twitter, Fortnite, and Fallout 76 all had mysterious "outages" today but I've not seen anything concrete

It me.

@stevegrunwell Meh, I forget how to get PHP debugging working all the time. A quick search and I am back in business. Rock stars know how to use search tools ;)

Just ran across an “elite developers use shitty old Linux laptops held together with duct tape and bailing wire” thread and am feeling a little salty about it.

If you judge developers for the tools they use, the real tool was you all along.

And this was the moment that @asgrim@twitter.com realized why everyone wanted to move to cards instead of cash and checks. It's easier to separate us from our money when it's electronic and just a number in the computer.

Capitalism rears it's ugly head once more!

Does Symfony 4 do some weird caching? It's taking forever, or just not noticing in some cases, when a file gets edited.

Currently it's complaining a class doesn't exist in the expected file... but it does. It seems stuck on a previous edit.

2nd day of work, and the entire internet goes down.

Welp, it was a good run I guess.

Pretty sure that magicians and wizards of ye olden times were just winging it as much as we as programmers do now.

"I want you to make the crops grow large."
"Uhm... sure." *waves hands around*
"Why is this still all beans?"
"What?"
"I wanted big crops. And a gold ring."

Unbelievably I just arranged to record a @JerksTalkGames@twitter.com podcast with @dragonmantank@twitter.com this Thursday — we have a new idea for format that will definitely work for at least two weeks before I make excuses and cry off recording

After 8 years it's time to leave the travel life behind. I'm looking for a lower-travel role in DevRel leadership, Senior DevRel or Engineering (PHP/Golang/etc.)

I'm a polyglot/educator that loves to work on Dev Tools & educating folks on cool tech. Remote/~Seattle. DMs open :)
