2015-02-26: +Xubuntu 15.04 beta 1 released.
    http://xubuntu.org/news/xubuntu-15-04-beta-1/

2015-02-28: +Xfce 4.12 released.
    http://www.xfce.org/about/news/?post=1425081600

Since beta 1 means feature freeze, the upcoming version of Xubuntu missed having the latest version of Xfce by two days? What a shame!

Really great podcast featuring two of the nicest people you're likely to meet in the Perl community!
(+Tatsuhiko Miyagawa and +Ricardo Signes )

I was disappointed that the FOSDEM live feeds weren't working for me the this weekend. I can't wait for the videos to show up!
Ricardo Signes joins me to talk about the development of Perl 5.

+Scott Wlaschin gave his patterns talk last night and the video is up already! I'd seen these slides before and video of another talk that used some of the same slides, but this is the first time I've seen video of this talk. Thanks, F#unctional Londoners!

Just tried my first Burton Baton from Dogfish Head. How have I not tried this before? It's not new. Two kinds of ale blended together and aged in oak barrels. AMAZING!

I really enjoyed this talk! There's not much Ruby in it (none at all for the first half hour), so even if you don't know Ruby you'll probably like it.

In 2004, Tony Hoare's CSP paper was merely "great" (though he has another paper in "the greatest of the great" category). Given the advent of #Go, #Clojure's core.async, and others, I think the CSP paper would jump up to at least "pretty great" if not "the greatest of the great" in a similar survey today.
In September, 2004, I posted a query to the Types list asking people to name the five most important papers ever written in the area of programming languages. This page collects the responses I received. (A few are missing because I am still tracking down bibliographic information.) ...

My only experiences with pair programming have been impromptu, but they almost always yield great results. I don't know why I don't plan pair sessions, especially with new people. I don't think I will ever be comfortable using phrases like "onboarding junior devs," but that doesn't have to stop me from doing it.
DevMynd is a digital design and development firm working in Ruby-on-Rails, JavaScript, iOS, and Clojure.

Nothing to do with junior developers, but perhaps my favorite video of 2015 was posted just 8 days in and featured pair programming. +Brad Fitzpatrick and +Andrew Gerrand writing the new tip.golang.org!

Hey, Kernighan & Pike is 30 years old!

While Unix itself is well over 40 years old, this book about the philosophy of programming in Unix came out in 1984.

There aren't a lot of 30 year old computer manuals worth holding onto, but I'm not getting rid of this one yet.

You can see Pike in this movie from the same era.

Hooray for Advent calendars!
I love this time of year, in part because of all the great Advent calendars that pop up. Clojure and Java Elixir and Erlang F# and C# Perl, Perl6, and Dancer SysAdvent Where is Go?
