There are several classes of developer products, but broadly they can be classified into —

Oh, "the only one thinking about our country" was ranked 747/750 EU MPs. Now he could hire migrants to do his job.

Static typing vs. dynamic #typing: I may start a fatwa, but it seems the former is not better than the latter

#code #statictyping   #dynamictyping   #debug   #bestpractices  
This is perhaps the most illuminating discussion I’ve seen on the topic. Definitely worth a watch.

And what about people like me, sick of people who say they are sick of experts? #noocracy  has never been that far...

@nicoleperlroth @qhardy True. On the other hand, the Brits have escaped the suffocating regulations of an unelected bureaucratic elite. Я Shabani-San. 28m28 minutes ago. Я Shabani-San @_R_S_S_. Anti-EU sentiment started with Thatcher and her anti-euro and anti-EU party a long, long time ago.

The iron lady was ok, particularly compared to a mean king calling her "daughter of a vegetables-seller".

The problem is the current rise of populism further boosted by social media and the idea that everybody can easily know anything and thus be entitled to one's own dumb/fanatic opinion to share.

Pound crashing at 31 years low (for now!), losing more wealth than EU ever asked for, becoming an economy smaller than France, seriously risking to lose Scotland and to have johnson as a prime minister...

Oh, and even many more worse things I am not even willing to list: good #brexit  everyone and thanks to all those believing their beloved populist leaders :)!

No idea then as to why you get the annoying overlay and nobody else apparently does.

Well, I have one, but before wishing to share my mind on that issue, I still have to safely correlate annoying popups and amount of chemtrails in your dining room.

Edit: and to be clear - I just assumed that maybe +Andrea Borgia had to work in some place where you cannot install s**t unless you overcome a few months worth of bureaucratic ordeals.

On changing your own taliban approach to coding paradigms.

And the author is also quite right about the future of FP

Showing off - from left to right - a taurine neck, the raising star of +IMT Lucca, +Walter Quattrociocchi and pieces of the future research that will certainly have again a deep impact on the world of social network analysis and more.

A shame +Salvatore Previti only saw the first one of the three live and yet keep bragging no-stop about the other two :p

Time to rethink #sexism and how to deal with it? Maybe, as a study reveals strong discrimination "in favor of women".

Also, nth confirmation that the naive solution of minority quota usually works the opposite of what they were intended to work.

Free market is not "some form of magic", though: it works for a number of reasons, given certain circumstances.

And if you really want to start, work since early childhood to fight stereotypes, not giving away good jobs only because the person in front of you happened to be in some minority.

On a side note, I never heard about male quotas in teaching or nursing jobs (which are definitely not bad at all), uh!

"The M5S has simply copied the method of the founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, and applied it to politics."

Most of the article is spot on in drawing a lot of analogies among cults. I am only perplexed by the parallel between the "incredibly beautiful man" Cruise (meh...) and the "incredibly beautiful woman" Raggi (wait, what?)

#m5s   #fascism #politics  
Tom Cruise is an exceptionally beautiful American man with an invincible smile, but he is a member of a cult…

Beh, brutto colpo per il grosso degli elettori che sperano di passare da pantofolacce e panzetta a sedia parlamentare e vestito da bimbo alla prima comunione come di maio... E ora poi chi lo dice alla bedori di non guardare mai oltre un posto da assessore a Segrate?

The receptionist was pretty kind and gentle, even considering I came really at a late hour due to a flight problem. The breakfast was ok-ish: not stellar, but decent and with good variety, particularly considering you could stuff yourself with food for a few pounds as some guests clearly did. Being in a central area and quite close to many ways of public transit also helps a lot. And that ends the positive side of it: rooms are cramped, not very clean, but still better than the quite dirty baths. One of them was also broken, so if you plan on having a quick shower with little to no queue, good luck with that! All in all my experience was barely passable, yet I still wonder if this hostel is really award-winning, in which shape others could be...
