My only issue is when CoC are applied outside of a project when a contributor's personal publications are monitored for violation.

I really enjoyed this talk! I've been spending most of my recreational programming time lately writing Elixir (Actor model) and Go (CSP), so maybe I just feel validated.

Don't know whether to blame AMC or Verizon, but watching episode 1 of HUM∀NS online was pretty painful. The show itself was interesting enough, but the repeated pausing for no apparent reason got old quick. I don't think I'll give up my television set quite yet.

I get your point. I've had similar problems with Yahoo! Screen during the first few episodes of Community. I think sometimes they have significantly more viewers than they prepared for.

Also, my internet provider generally isn't set to handle 7-11pm most days.

But most of the time, I'm more than happy with having cut the cord.

Wow, this talk from a couple of years ago by +Stefan Tilkov  is pretty great! How did I miss it?

On design patterns, he quotes Mark Dominus:
"Patterns are signs of weakness in programming languages."

I have a sign on the wall near my desk at work with a similar sentiment:
"Patterns mean 'I have run out of language.'" -- +Rich Hickey

any architectural ones, Active Record, Data Mapper, Model View Controller, Dependency Injection. Language change might make it easier, or add some native support, but those are architecture separation of concerns decisions. Honestly I don't think most of the gang of four or other pattern books would change much... sometimes you also have to realize your framework/language is just doing it for you. I've never written a flyweight in Java, but I know Java itself has flyweights under the hood (more or less) (and I know Perl 6 had a memory/cpu improvement adding them).

I believe I was knitting on the other side of this exact room at this exact moment! I really need to make more of an effort to connect with my fellow knitters at Perl conferences! I have tried to form knitting BOFs at previous #YAPC s and failed, but that's no reason not to keep trying! A stitch 'n bitch with +Yanick Champoux, +Random Geek, +VM Brasseur, +Karen Pauley, and perhaps others can-- and should--- have happened. I need to do better!

I'm pretty sure there will be a knitting BOF next year. The inertia has been broken, and momentum is picking up. I'm telling you, next time, we'll knit, and we'll convert and bring new recruits into the fold.

My mouse at $work has started doing this. I'm about ready to take a bouzouki to it!

All weekend, I've been gorging myself on videos from PolyConf 15, which took place earlier this month.  What a fantastic conference!

When I grow up, I want to be a polyglot programmer!

Clojure 1.7...now with transducers!
We are pleased to announce the release of Clojure 1.7. The two headline features for 1.7 are transducers and reader conditionals. Also see the complete list of all changes since Clojure 1.6 for more details. Transducers Transducers are composable algorithmic transformations. They are independent from the context of their input and output sources and specify only the essence of the transformation in terms of an individual element. ...

+Nick Patch 's "Hello, my name is __________" talk at #YAPC was pretty great! It sounds like he's going to repeat it at several upcoming conferences, but if you're not going to any of those, both the video and the slides are available here on the internets!
Open source, written languages of the world… and lichens!

Gah. I can't tell if G+ is going to start this at the right place...I tried to mark it at "P5 Pigs" at about the 68 minute mark.
