Co-worker and Go developer Andrew Deane on his use of Go on his prior job. He's working around  #juju  these days. 
As part of the Canonical Cloud Sprint taking place in San Francisco last week I attended Dave Cheney's talk at the GoSF meetup on the porting and extension of juju. Juju is an open-source cloud management and service orchestr...

Everyone loves a superhero coder until they get hit by falling debris. Those comicbook coding battles are messy.

Started learning #golang, other stuff came up, never got productive with it. Looking again, and liking the "How to write Go code" doc. That doc fits how my brain wants to think about code when learning a new language. http://golang.org/doc/code.html
Introduction. This document demonstrates the development of a simple Go package and introduces the go command, the standard way to fetch, build, and install Go packages and commands. This content is a...

The event stuff in G+ is pretty cool, but I really ought to be able to create recurring events in my calendar and associate a hangout URL with them.

I think I heard that trick from you or someone else and that's what I did, too.  It works, and it's nice enough. Would just be cool if they allowed recurring events.

We're hiring a Python Product Engineer at Storybird. Let me know if you want to talk more or are interested in the gig. It's telecommute, a very cool, artsy, and quickly growing startup.

I dig the new G+ design. Feels like social is actually the intent finally, rather than just a semi-private hangout space for the cool kids. ;)

Been working outside lately. So nice here in Alabama. And it's only bound to last another couple weeks.

I asked this on twitter but there's more space to write and more geeks whose opinion I value here at G+ so I'll ask in long form....

Why is Google held up as soooo much better than Apple in terms of iOS v Android?  I'm asking seriously and not intending to troll.  It's just that Android is hardly a model F/OSS citizen.  Is it the hardware freedom that people enjoy, or the slightly more free software?  And if it's hardware, what value is that if the OS isn't really completely free?  If I have to root the phone to get what OS I want on there, doesn't that negate some of these arguments?  If your comparing software freedom, it just seems Apple and Android aren't so far apart to me.

Full disclosure, I own and use both and don't really have a dog in the fight, as we'd say here in Alabama. It just seems to me there is some disconnect in some of the arguments just because people want to be harsher on Apple and have a softer eye on Google, and I wonder if there's more to or I'm missing something larger.

It's definitely about the developer community for me. Right now I'm using a Galaxy S III with the paranoid android Jelly Bean Rom. I didn't like using the hardware home button so I am able to enable tablet mode and disable the physical button and the soft keys. The soft keys still lite up so I just added an init.d startup script to write a 0 to /sys/classes/led/button_backlight/max_brightness.

Also the whole OS is just a lot more flexible. If I want a different keyboard I can install a hundred different options without even rooting the device. That kind of flexibility is made possible by the intent uri system which I think is one of the best approaches around.

I think with jelly bean android is finally outpacing Apple in the sexiness department. 4.1 is just very very slick and full featured. The leap from gingerbread to ics was huge and jelly bean adds that last crucial but of polish.

I love that G+ suggests my own self in the people you may know section. Yes, indeed, I do know myself, but I still don't want me in any of my circles.
