Reasons to attend ffconf #1: CI…CD…C*

https://ffconf.org is created and run by myself and Julie (my partner in all things), and my most important job is to curate very best content for the year. Each year is a challenge, but as the year progresses, I ask myself: what's important to the web, the way we work and how can we improve?

The sessions will make you and your business better from day to day. So why should you attend ffconf? Issue #1.

It's hard to know everything about the full process of releasing projects. For me, it's easy to come up with ideas and write code to bring it to life, but making the test, integration and deployment continuous is a lot of additional knowledge. Let alone know what the options are and which work best.

That's why ALL THINGS CONTINUOUS is a session at ffconf 2016 this year. Continuous Deployment for everybody: from a one-person army to distributed teams. Ecosystem appraisal, time-saving tips and maximum velocity!

I asked Lena Reinhard if she could continue her talk on diversity in tech at #ffconf 2015. This is "A Talk About Everything" ... So good 💜

This post outlines a new diversity scholarships programme that I want to introduce for ffconf. It's entirely possible that this does not apply to you, my dear reader, but you still have an important role to play: please pass on the message and this link to help seek those out who can make use of the scholarships.

Oh god, this is all kinds of truth-bombs dropped. I eat chicken. This. Over and over and over again.

So funny (or at least to me/if you want an insight into bodybuilding diets)!

Make sure to spend link reading the referred links in the post and comments, they're all useful.
 
+Remy Sharp  on contributing to open source, or not.

There are two kinds of open source projects. There's the big, high profile projects and then there's everything else.

Contributing (code) to the Type One projects isn't something you can do with a few hours. So seriously, if you feel this pressure: stop it.

I know a lot of students and people who try to learn software development who are willing to contribute to open source projects but they get disappointed when they see how hard it is to compete with many others who want to do the same to famous projects.
There are also tons of non-famous projects that love to have those contributors on board but they simply can't find any contributors.
I see an opportunity for a marketplace here. Somebody should connect these two ends.

I've been working on Snyk for the last 6 months and this is tutorial on how to find vulnerabilities AND fix them automatically using the tools I've been working on.

TL;DR: npm install -g snyk && snyk wizard

https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2016/01/eliminating-known-security-vulnerabilities-with-snyk/

The way we consume open source apps dramatically changed. To prevent security issues, we need to eliminate security vulnerabilities. Here's a tool for that.

This is Snyk. I've been working on this since July and even if I didn't, I'd be using it for my projects.

Plus, it's pretty neat seeing the team's efforts coming together for the public beta: https://snyk.io

It looks really quite cool; was reading about it today. Does it understand about different node versions? That is, say I'm running jsdom 3 because I didn't want to change to iojs (I know they've remerged now, but this is an example). Will it just say: haha upgrade, sucker! Or does it try to make you as secure as it can without serious upheaval?

I posted the following on twitter: "Something I’m starting to realise and accept for myself: I’m a web developer. Not an engineer. Mostly an approach & understanding difference" in early Feb, and today I posted a blog post that expanded on what I was thinking.

Lots of <3 to all the web devs out there.

Great video - particularly liked the clips included. Two additions I've got:

1. Guys who spend an unreasonable amount of time starkers & squatting on front of their locker. It's the open butt checks that freak me out.

2. People who get on to the running machines only to stand totally stationary watching the overhead TVs for 15 minutes - I kid you not.

Super tasty, classic fish and chips. A little out of the way, but totally worth it.

Good burger, very reminiscent of 80s burgers, just £8 for a cheeseburger (instead of olden day £3). Got my partner's order wrong though…
