This has been a rough week for the open web. Last week, Mozilla Corporation, makers of the ever-popular Firefox web browser, appointed co-founder Brendan Eich to CEO.  The move was not surprising—Eich, after all, invented Javascript, the web’s lingua franca—but it would turn into a PR nightmare for Mozilla after it was made public that...

I tend to prefer verbose-yet-intuitive than concise-yet-cryptic code. Clarity matters.

The obvious has been spoken.......

"We hope that this finally puts to rest the illusions people have about fingerprint biometrics. It is plain stupid to use something that you can´t change and that you leave everywhere every day as a security token"

My name is Talmai, and I have never written software test-first. At least now I don't need to hide it anymore. Long live testing.
 
My name is Lucas, and I do not write software test-first. There, I said it. Pretty much agree with the sentiment here.

TDD is dead. Long live testing. By David Heinemeier Hansson on April 23, 2014. Test-first fundamentalism is like abstinence-only sex ed: An unrealistic, ineffective morality campaign for self-loathing and shaming. It didn't start out like that. When I first discovered TDD, ...

You know what's worse... that I never thought about using this type of data to uniquely identify a visitor.... DUH! I may not even need cookies anymore.... WOW...

"Ultimately, you might have to make a terrible sacrifice to avoid the excesses of bubbly tech culture: You might have to prefer work with lasting meaning over work that confers instant prestige and a lavish starting salary. You might have to invite conference speakers—and hire leaders—who work outside the usual spotlights and slowly accomplish amazing things. You might have to choose ethically stalwart colleagues over big brand names."
