Everyone, @ me or @judeswae if you have any questions, I'm happy to help where I can

I gave an interview to JAXenter about DevOps, Continuous Delivery, Serverless and the future of infrastructure provisioning (German only, sorry 😞):

Russian ML/face recognition startup develops algorithm + releases it in low-key beta test until it’s reliable, then ramps of marketing for exposure and suddenly gets an influx of billions of pictures, in exchange for a few pictures after having run them through an their second software package, an age simulator.

They then proceed to sell said algorithm (and the tech behind the aging/de-aging app) to interested parties (ie law enforcement, state actors etc) all over the world.

The end. #faceapp

"Illium" was another name for the city of Troy

"-ad" is a suffix that can be used to mean "the story of"

Therefore "The Illiad" is properly translated as; drumroll please...

Troy Story

Hi everyone! My name is Chris. I develop apps for the GNOME desktop, and host I’m currently looking for full-time work so that I can pay essential things like food and rent. I would really appreciate any financial help you can spare.

Hi, I'm Jan, also known as halfbyte on the internet. Together with Florian, who's not on the Fediverse, I run, your friendly dependency update robot factory. I'm interested in weird and odd uses of ruby. I occasionally speak at conferences. I co-run the Hamburg Ruby Usergroup. #introduction

This is a fraction of what I've been receiving the past few days/weeks through the App Store and email. It sucks, and it's impacting sales massively (to the point where it makes me question whether continued support is even worth it), but just got to hold it out.

@judeswae thanks for the lunch and learn! mobile app looks cool 😎

An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.

It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (

Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.

Boost very appreciated

Thanks in advance for your contribution !

My software development workflow now consists only of trying to handle dependabot emails about lodash fixes faster than they come in, send help

This ThoughtWorks DE lunch time brown bag presentation is really, really good. Talking about what makes good/healthy/successful group cultures. I’m thinking about several of my communities and how they’re lacking the things Daniel’s talking about.

Surprise! #Google

Keyservers are one of the most frustrating aspects of using public key crypto. They're notoriously unreliable & vulnerable to various types of flooding attacks.

Last month was launched, which is a very well-architected and collaboratively run new keyserver.

As of today, the SecureDrop team is using it for its release key. Very proud to be early adopters of this new public infra. Hopefully we'll be able to add WKD support soon, as well.

For all TootWorkers who want to verify their Mastodon account on their Keybase profile. It's a little finicky with our setup here since Okta does not forward links properly.

But all you have to do is use the command-line utility and do:

$ keybase prove <your-username>

Then copy the given URL and paste it into a window where this instance is already open and visible. That worked for me.
