10 years ago the Occupy movement was resonating globally. On the 16th of Oct in London we gathered in St. Paul square next to the stock exchange. It became a transformational moment for me and many of the people I met and these are some of the pictures I took in that square.

This is so underhand 😰 FB casually changing urls with js so they can lie to you
You may have noticed that when you click/copy a link on Facebook, a page on l.​facebook​.​com opens first and only then you're redirected to the original site. Even though the A HREF in the HTML points to the site. Even the tiny status line at the bottom shows the correct link.

People often think about coding as creating new stuff, but actually it's mostly about changing stuff that's already there. And Test Driven Development (TDD) helps keep that safe. Tune in to hear me and @GeepawHill chat about this and much more: tinyurl.com/geepaw-hill-twit…

We worked our arses off implementing GDPR across the country, we'll continue to do so so we can do business in the EU but now, as private citizens, we won't benefit from it

“The North” is constantly having to put up with this hand-me-down nonsense. They were not fit to be trains, now they are going to be health buildings? Please….
50 year old trains that used to be busses repurposed as hospital spaces and school classrooms. The fucking insult of it. Is this the levelling up you promised?

If, like me, you also found yourself in a Staff or Principal position but don't really understand how you got there or what the very ambiguous expectations are, I highly recommend reading "Staff Engineer" by Will Larson (@Lethain). Thanks @peschkaj for the recommendation <3

They say attacks only get better. But this is really quite a lot better, in less than a day.

What are all the different ways SaaS Providers are shipping Web Components to their clients? Not all of them seems all that great to me in that we don't ideally want to force our clients to use a particular framework or tool poly.work/andrewjones/highli… #polywork
