word came through last night for no-one to go to the office, unless vitally necessary.
@acron - North of the Border as well, but we are keeping our kids off school anyway
I have an 8 yr old and a 7 yr old - getting them to be quiet during conference calls is the best part.
we took the kids out of school a few days ago... seemed like the sensible thing
Greetings from North of the Wall, the Land of Rebellion and deep fried food.
The reason schools are open is because there's a lot of parents who would have to ship their children off to grandparents if that happened.
Yes, there is a concern that closing the schools en masse would put littel germ carriers into the front rooms of vulnerable senior citizens.
High School is closed for 'deep cleaning' until Thursday Nursery expects to stay open though
the kids who set off firealarms at the highschool are just gonna start spitting behind the cupboard
It's easy for us developers / office workers to want schools to close. But kids are pretty resilient to this sort of thing.
We are keeping ours home because we are both getting over pre-COVID-19 illness and are effectively compromised at the moment. Similarly we live in an isolated glen with a lot of older people. Not having our Germ Emissaries out in the World is a good idea across the board for us.
I think it's sensible for parents to judge the situation, if they can keep them home then it's better.
We (as in most programmers) at the Beeb have been kicked out of the office and send home for the foreseeable, but the main reason is to protect the broadcast critical people who work in the same office. They don't want us riff-raff dragging in god-knows-what off the tube and infecting the control room staff.
Also, people are forgetting that allergy season is starting in earnest. The onset of hay fever feels a lot like the start of a cold/flu.
So NPM got bought out by GitHub (but really Microsoft): https://github.blog/2020-03-16-npm-is-joining-github/
I think it's simply that github is the behemoth in room, the proverbial 8000lb gorilla, the black-hole that devours all that falls within its event horizon - and never underestimate sheer inertia of people to move elsewhere...
gitlab isn't teeny - i did a reference interview with them a few weeks ago - they've got a fully remote globally distributed team of over 1,000 people
Ultimately, they're aiming to be a big company too. They'll have reasons to shut down voices they don't like. They also want to own your whole stack (github actions was definitely trying to catch up with gitlabs built in ci). They're VC funded, and that will have an impact.
it's certainly not up to github/lab standards in terms of functionality (bells & whistles) but it does what I need to do
Being a small company, and also Drew being Drew, makes me think it's a better place to sit. I do think the social web experiments are interesting in this space.
wow crazy my friend just got let go because of corona, the company he works for is asking people to take time off for free
obviously the company invested time/money to look for and hire someone, now they've thrown that away.
I'm also between jobs; was suppposed to start my next contract this week but postponed due to CoronaVirus I've been mostly Clojure/Java/Database Backend kinda guy, with a bit of ClojureScript/React around the edges If you know anyone who's wanting a few weeks remote consulting, I would be agog to talk to them
oh this got me really excited https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/keyboardio/atreus
Oh wow, an email just came through announcing “GitHub for mobile”. You click on the link to take you to the App/Play store and what do you get? That’s right, Microsoft’s To Do app. Self high five.
