good morning

jasonbell09:12:59

Morning - could someone explain to me where the last week went?

slipset09:12:40

Into the grey abyss, I believe.

slipset09:12:35

last week was strange. I don’t feel I got a lot done, but my (amateur) chess ranking dropped almost 100 points, which seems to indicate that my brain got fried anyhow.

borkdude09:12:58

A lot changed in our team the last two weeks... Team lead left (who did a lot of things in our team, the initial creator and mind behind the product), we will have to migrate the product to different hardware (because it was also ran by our team lead), another colleague left, we depend on an open source product who is now rewriting to Rust and will charge heavily for some features we're using which will be closed source in the next version.

Ouch. Sounds like heavy sea ahead. Good luck and fingers crossed. 🤞

val_waeselynck15:12:09

Tough times! Though you've delivered so impressively @U04V15CAJ that I'm confident you'll make it through

borkdude15:12:50

Our team still has very capable people and everybody in the company has been kind and understanding. The split was also amicable. It's understandable people want a break after a few years.

val_waeselynck16:12:02

That's good to hear

otfrom15:12:05

that still sounds like a tall order. Good luck with it all

I must have sucked the oxygen out of the room. Last week was good for me. I've been feeling less productive recently, and this last week was much better for me.

Good thing is that I just deployed my oauth rewrite, and it seems to work.

Also, I’ve been on boarding a new colleague, which, while Nice, is quite tiring for me.

RAMart11:12:54

Out of curiosity: A new Clojurian?

slipset11:12:49

Yes. An (I would say, even compared to me) older guy, mainly frontender who became sick and tired of JS, and wanted to get into functional programming. Had offers from different places but chose us and Clojure. Spent the time from his resignation to him starting with us reading a bunch of Clojure books, setting up Cursive, and doing 4-Clojure. Submitted his first PR on his first day.

@slipset oauth client or server?

orestis14:12:39

I had meetings everyday but managed to get a PR to the next step (things are working but super ugly UI), which was a small win.

slipset14:12:32

On Thursday I had 7 zoom meetings...

borkdude14:12:33

That's how I usually start too, super ugly UI!

dominicm16:12:25

I did that on aws too. Fortunately I didn't have a card attached.

borkdude16:12:30

What happened on AWS then?

dominicm16:12:37

I don't understand the question. I told them I couldn't pay and never heard from them.

dominicm16:12:42

This would have been a decade ago.

orestis18:12:45

On the topic of UI, does anyone know of a good resource for UI/UX resources aimed at developers? I need to consolidate my blog and portfolio page into one and I would be keen to have my own design from scratch.

orestis18:12:45

In the past I’ve read the “non-designers design book” which was a fantastic read and highly recommended for everyone.

orestis18:12:23

But I’d like to delve a little bit deeper and also get a web perspective.
