good morning

simongray08:06:43

I discovered https://somafm.com/ on HN the other day.

simongray08:06:53

Really like it! The recommendation systems from Spotify/Apple Music/Google Music tend to reach a steady state after a while, reducing their discovery functionality. Niche radio stations like this work better for me, I think.

Saw someone mention it, too, giving it a go now 🙂

Listening to Groov Salad Classic… haven’t heard any of the tunes before, but the vibe really takes me back! Ahhhhhh

Hope no one is flying I or out of London this week, it seems like lots of things are going wrong. I was delayed 2 hours flying home to London yesterday, although that was luckier than the people on the 3 AEasyjet planes that landed almost consecutively just as we were boarding. And far better than the people on the 240 flights that EasyJet cancelled over the last 10 days I consider myself lucky to be home (Berlin was lovely though)

borkdude09:06:18

@jr0cket You went to Berlin but returned home before ClojureD? 😱

practicalli-john09:06:45

Just a day trip to start a new job at a company in Berlin. Hopefully I will be at ClojureD next year if my health keeps improving.

borkdude09:06:43

Nice! A Clojure job I hope? :)

practicalli-john09:06:36

Of course, I have no need to do anything other than Clojure 😁 They are some really great people too

borkdude09:06:04

Anyone I might have heard of, if you're willing to share? If you're not comfortable, I get it :)

practicalli-john09:06:13

Happy to share that I have started a new job with https://www.billie.io/ I will be working with there data scientists to ensure they get the data they need to detect fraudulent financial payments (using Clojure of course) and to help establish additional software engineering practices. Their onboarding was fantastic, so off to a great start (well after the UK extra long bank holiday)

I haven't even made it to a London Clojurians talk online in a long while, but should be there more often for the rest of the year 🤞 I’d like to call in on the uSwitch Clojure dojo after the summer

“linguistic-oriented programming” - time to write a book about this new paradigm shift!

Time to procrastinate on packing by posting about how I'm about to start packing. Leaving for Berlin in the morning!

borkdude17:06:47

I procrastinated on creating workshop material by creating this today! https://github.com/babashka/cli Cya in Berlin @plexus :)

good morning! (I know it is evening in most of Europe but I have been overloaded with a big release of a delayed project and last-moment and after-last-moment fire fighting)
