Been hemming and hawing over a hobby project idea since April, and finally made some progress on it today thanks to Miro (mapping out my ideas) and Auth0 (handling signup and login). One detail I need to fill in is how to create a local database record for users that sign up via auth0, so I guess that's my next avenue of inquisition. And then I can get started on the visual design.
@Crell Hey, quick thought on your data provider blog post (which was a great summation of my favourite parts of data providers): a fifth advantage of `yield` over `array` is that if you accidentally give two data provider entries the same name, a `yield` will result in both being tested, but an `array` will result in the second occurrence clobbering the first. It's silly, but for large providers, it could conceivably one day save someone's butt.
Reading GitHub comments on one coworker's PR, another coworker compliments his coding style and advocates for that method of avoiding nested if statements. And I'm like "Yeah. Preach it."
And then I lurch forward, remembering that I wrote one earlier today & have suddenly realized a way to refactor it to remove the nesting.
Do I code now, or do I wait until tomorrow?
Installing PHP 8 on Raspbian is a lot easier when you have a decent guide for it. Found this one tonight: https://lindevs.com/install-php-8-0-on-raspberry-pi/
I finally got my underwater drone back in the water after a long winter hiatus, and I found something neat! https://youtu.be/KT-g50Rq-2o
Went for a walk today & took a photo of an old rusted car wreck. I'd taken a photo of the same wreck 10 years ago, and thought it would be fun to try again. https://www.flickr.com/photos/beryllium/51030546331/in/dateposted/
The hull is actually much cleaner than the photo suggests; I think a lot of the speckledness is from light reflecting off the water, amplified by computer-driven postprocessing settings.

Not my boat, although it could be for the low, low price of $15,900 CDN.
I want to propose "final abstract class" as a solution to this: it can be extended, and the abstract methods can be added, but nothing more than that can be done. And the extended class has to be final itself.
Not ideal, but I discovered a way around this: reading inbound messages from the API and reacting to them locally. Aka, polling. 🤷 I guess it works, for now.
