I really do worry about the world my daughter and her generation is going to grow up in. It's not been a kind year in painting that picture between Climate, politics, pandemic... Texas ... It can be overwhelming to consider how to best help make it better.

What's everyone's favorite band to listen to while coding / focusing on mental tasks? I end up listening to deadmau5 as my go-to for the past decade.

Worth considering if your team is undervaluing this in solving your bigger pain points
What is up with this continual protesting in data science that "the hardest problem is actually getting quality data" and then absolutely no pathways to hire, value and evaluate the skillsets around operationalizing and collecting quality data

Software Job Hunting Pro-Tip: Make sure your profile (LinkedIn, AngelList, etc) has the technologies and frameworks you worked in at each position. Without it you can easily get passed by when a recruiter is reading 100's of profiles in a night.

Some insights into Remote Cultures in startup scene of 2020+ from our CEO @MichelleUfford ! Definitely worth the quick read even if you're not in the space atm.
What do some of the highest-performing teams have in common? They are transparent, friendly, and always put the problem before the ego. Today's blog shares our journey to 100% remote and how we’re building positive remote experiences for all. medium.com/noteableio/our-jo… #remotework

I think JavaScript has proven that having baffling language inconsistencies does not impact the ability to be an effective, elegant, and well adopted solution to problems. SQL has its pain points but I can land in basically any SQL database and understand the interaction.
Against SQL. scattered-thoughts.net/writi… I just couldn't take one more HN comments about how SQL is simple and well-designed.

Engineers who focus on frontend/UI development: Which job title do you prefer – "UI engineer", "frontend engineer", or something different? Is one title more 'prestigious' than another?
14% UI engineer
39% Frontend engineer
14% Something else
34% It's all the same

I'm not paid six figures as an engineer at @Twitter because I've memorized obscure DNS commands. I'm paid it because I know when to look something up, know how to do it, and can recognize safe and correct answers. And I'm senior because I can explain that information to others.

I took a range of experiences from my past roles and as an advisor to other companies to put together some observations on why high performers were getting stuck with low success on cross team projects. There can be other elements at play, but avoid blindness by specialization!
Why do #data teams get into conflict? CTO @codeseal explains that it's probably not because they're poorly managed or bad at their job. Instead, they're typically not communicating and understanding the different approaches from the different roles. medium.com/noteableio/origin…
